LabCrystal magazine provides protein crystallographers with interesting views and updates, with an aim to enhance their knowledge and technical ability.
Marburg Virus: Workings of the First Promising Treatment RevealedNews
Scientists have discovered the workings of the first promising treatment for Marburg virus, a pathogen with the same pandemic potential as Ebola virus. The research builds on previous studies showing that an antibody called MR191 can neutralize Marburg—though no one knew exactly how it targeted the virus.READ MORE
Plant Protein Reveals Surprising Immune Response to Bacterial AttackNews
When you see brown spots on otherwise healthy green leaves, you may be witnessing a plant’s immune response as it tries to keep a bacterial infection from spreading. Some plants are more resistant to such infections than others, and plant biologists want to understand why. Scientists studying a plant protein called SOBER1 recently discovered one mechanism by which, counter-intuitively, plants seem to render themselves less resistant to infection.READ MORE
