May 12, 2015 — Chaperones are molecular helpers that assist other proteins with folding. One such chaperone is the so-called heat shock protein 60 (Hsp60). This protein forms structures in mitochondria that ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Researchers have developed artificial membranes with programmable features, enabling studies of cell communication and the molecular basis of disease. The new study demonstrates how researchers can ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Every inch of our body, inside and out, is oozing with bacteria. In fact, the human body carries 10 times the number of bacterial cells as human cells. Many are our friends, helping us digest food ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Generating offspring is the evolutionary goal of all living organisms. The multiplication of individual cells is coordinated by the cell cycle. Researchers have now identified the central switch for ... read more

Biologist Are Increasingly Becoming Data Scientists, Expert Says

May 6, 2015 — Biology is rapidly acquiring the character of a data science. Billions of data points on genes, proteins and other molecules are compiled in large files and systematically studied. This should lead ... read more

May 6, 2015 — Biologists have discovered a new microbe that represents a missing link in the evolution of complex life. The study provides a new understanding of how, billions of years ago, the complex cell types ... read more

Researchers Put Magic Spin on Protein to Tease out Its First Dance With Tempo Set by Temperature

May 6, 2015 — All cells contain complex molecular components that fulfil functions necessary for the cell to live. These components require motion in a very particular order to function almost like an intricate ... read more

The Nucleus: Blueprints for the Construction of Nuclear Pores Deciphered

May 6, 2015 — New insights have been provided into how nuclear pores are constructed in the nuclear envelope. Nuclear pores regulate the exchange of macromolecules between the interior of the nucleus, where ... read more

Unexpected Role for Calcium in Controlling Inflammation During Chronic Lung Infection

May 4, 2015 — Many of us take a healthy immune system for granted. But for certain infants with rare, inherited mutations of certain genes, severe infection and death are stark consequences of their impaired ... read more

May 4, 2015 — Is there a sixth DNA base? A team of researchers suggests that the methyl-adenine that would regulate the expression of certain genes in eukaryotic cells could have a specific role in stem cells and ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — Flowering plants naturally know when they need to spare or perish their cells. In a new study, an international group of plant biologists has examined the ovules of plant cells by live-imaging to ... read more

Shetland Pony Midge Study Offers Clues to Curbing Allergies

Apr. 23, 2015 — Shetland ponies' immune response to insect bites is helping scientists understand how people could be prevented from developing allergies. The horse immune system can respond to midge bites in a ... read more
