Proteasome Blocker Brings Glaucoma Gene Therapy Closer

To improve gene transfer to treat the blinding disease glaucoma, the front of an untreated eye (left) is compared to an eye (right) pre-treated with a gene delivery enhancer. The green marker reveals the expression of the gene introduced through gene therapy, showing improved delivery using the enhancer.

Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic Protein

News

A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
