deCODE biostructures Announces Fragments of Life™ Milestone and Extension with InterMune
News Jan 29, 2008
deCODE biostructures, Inc has announced that it successfully met a development milestone under its agreement with InterMune via delivery of multiple small molecule fragments to a proprietary protein target.
The structures represent chemotypes and provide new scaffolds for developing unique small molecule drugs. In connection with the achievement of this milestone, deCODE and InterMune agreed to extend their collaborative research agreement.
Improving Poultry Production Through Precision Fertility ManagementNews
Whilst the poultry industry has historically regarded fertility as a physiological problem of some males, on-going research is revealing that this view is misleadingly simplistic. The reality is that variation in fertility is a complex issue because fertility is determined by the interaction of male and female factors at multiple levels.READ MORE

A group of researchers have shown that mussel larvae are sensitive to ocean acidification, resulting in reduced rates of calcification.READ MORE
Protein "Intentionally" Terminates own Synthesis by Destabilizing Synthesis Machinery — the RibosomeNews
A research group has discovered that a protein, during its synthesis, may destabilize the structure of the ribosome and end its own synthesis prematurely, and found that this phenomenon is used for adapting the cell to its environment.READ MORE
