Structure of Tau Filaments from Alzheimer’s Brain Solved by Cryo-EM

Tau filament structures, rendered in blue and white. In the background, a photomicrograph of a Bodian silver-stain preparation shows a neuron from the cerebral cortex of an individual affected by Alzheimer disease. The cytoplasm around the nucleus contains a flame-shaped neurofibrillary tangle. The Tau filaments appear to wrap around the neuron.

Exploiting Epigenetics in Cancer Treatment


Changes to the complex of DNA and the proteins that form chromatin are important drivers in many cancers. We explore the challenges and progress in the development of new therapies targeting epigenetic regulators.


Through the Looking Glass of Single Cell Proteomics


To pick apart the differences between individual cells in complex multicellular organisms, we need to look at cells one-by-one. This article takes a look at how several scientists in North America are using single cell proteomics (SCP) technologies to discern disease pathogenesis and enhance directed stem-cell differentiation.
