An Easier Way to Separate GlycopeptidesNews
Chinese researchers have developed interfacially polymerized porous polymer particles for low- abundance glycopeptide separation. These polymer particles - with hydrophilic-hydrophobic heterostructured nanopores - can separate low-abundance glycopeptides from complex biological samples with high-abundance background molecules efficiently.
Lipid Droplets: More Than Just Fat StoresNews
Lipid droplets have been found to play critical roles in the life cycles of certain proteins involved in gene expression. Now, a new study describes how lipid droplets regulate these proteins. The research has implications for understanding what helps embryos survive and could cause us to reconsider how we look at lipid-related diseases like obesity.READ MORE
Protein Droplets Keep Your Neurons Firing FastNews
Inside cells, where DNA is packed tightly in the nucleus and rigid proteins keep intricate transport systems on track, some molecules can simply self-organize, find one another in crowded spaces, and quickly coalesce into droplets. Now, new research shows how proteins that organize into liquid droplets inside cells make certain biological functions possible.

About 422 million people around the world, including more than 30 million Americans, have diabetes. Obesity is the most significant risk factor for type 2 diabetes. yet about 30 percent of obese people do not develop type 2 diabetes or other metabolic conditions. New research aims to understand on a cellular level, how this separation occurs.READ MORE
