Using EBX reagents, researchers have converted the C-terminal carboxylic acid of peptides into a carbon-carbon triple bond - an alkyne (in chemical jargon a "decarboxylative alkynylation"). The alkyne moiety is a very valuable functional group that can be used to further modify the peptides.READ MORE
A new technique called ECCITE-seq allows researchers to perform high-throughput measurements of multiple modalities of information from single cells.READ MORE
A research team have developed a method to detect the amyloid-beta (Aβ) peptide in human blood. They hope that their research will have implications in diagnosing and understanding the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD).
Only about one in four people diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) survive five years after the initial diagnosis. To improve that survival rate, researchers have created an online atlas to identify and classify protein signatures present at AML diagnosis.READ MORE
Scientists have demonstrated that the protein TP53INP2 plays an important role in the induction of cell death. This finding could be relevant in the treatment of certain types of cancer.READ MORE
A new study from an international team of researchers is the first to identify a rarely-seen type of DNA mutation as the cause of an inherited metabolic disorder.READ MORE
Liver cells have an innate resistance to RNA viral infections like hepatitis A, dengue and Zika thanks to a protein called IRF1, according to a recent study published in Nature Microbiology.READ MORE
