Translating Structure into Function

...teams success came by modifying a technique called molecular docking, a computer-aided modeling strategy used to search for potential drugs. Docking works by allowing researchers to first determine the atom-by-atom structure of an enzyme and then screen many thousands of molecules for one that fits into the em...

Genetic Mutation That Makes Common Cancers Resistant to Drugs Identified

New Oncogene for Brain Cancer

...med, suggesting that the two genes lie in the same molecular pathway and have a similar effect. For oligodendroglioma, the researchers found that IGFBP2 combined with platelet-derived growth factor beta (PDGFB) results in a higher-grade form of the cancer than that caused by PDGFB alone. The high-grade tumor...

Insight Into Neural Stem Cells Has Implications For Designing Therapies

...ays Merkle, is a key step toward understanding the molecular mechanisms of neural stem cell potential. "Now you could compare adult stem cells in different regions at the genetic level. Since different neural stem cells make different types of neurons, maybe you could determine which genes are important for ma...
