In their review in BioEssays, Mariano Bizzarri et al. discuss how commitment of cell specification is constrained by physical cues.
Increasing consumption of western and low fiber diets, smoking or just exposure to tobacco smoke, harmful use of alcohol, physical inactivity, and environmental pollutants may have programed the human epigenome for higher NCCDs risk.
A special issue titled, Proteomics in Pathology, in the journal: Proteomics – Clinical Applications is accepting submissions now.
For nearly 35 years, CD4 T-cells and their immunephenotyping and enumeration were the focal points of HIV/AIDS research.
American scientists demonstrated the utility of SERS measurements of urine from deceased donors and associated PCA-LDA analysis as a potential tool to predict kidney transplant outcomes.
Internal ribosome entry sites (IRES) are used by some viruses to hijack the host cellular translation machinery for their own translation.
Pattern regulation, as observed in regeneration and development, enables cells to cooperate toward the creation and maintenance of complex anatomies. This image shows planaria, of which every piece has the information needed to restore a complete planarian target morphology.
The RNA-binding protein vigilin is conserved from yeasts to humans. Through 30 years of study, vigilin has been associated with a variety of cellular functions both in the nucleus and in the cytoplasm.
A new in vivo strategy for displaying foreign polypeptides on magnetosomes is presented.
A novel, nature template-based computation design method has been proposed, and demonstrates the potential for design of peptides for chemical biology and medicinal chemistry.
