Metabolomic Profiling Identifies Taurine as New MS Therapeutic

News

New research suggests that administering taurine, a molecule naturally produced by human cells, could boost the effectiveness of current multiple sclerosis (MS) therapies. The discovery also highlights the potential for a technique called “metabolomic profiling,” which can identify useful endogenous metabolites the body already makes in small quantities, such as taurine, for new applications in drug therapies.

Paired Mutations: A New Approach to Discovering the Shape of Proteins

News

Scientists have identified 'sequence co-variation' by analyzing the repertoire of mutations across thousands of members of a protein family. Within the three-dimensional structure of protein, certain amino acids interact so closely with each other that the mutation of one of them must be counteracted by compensatory mutations of the others to keep the protein functional.
