Bak Protein Sets Stressed Cells on Suicide Path

... the paper's first author.Bak and Bax have similar structures and scientists have long suspected they play major, similar roles in programmed cell death, or apoptosis. "These two proteins are very important for mitochondrial injury and subsequent apoptosis," says Dr. Dong. To stress cells, they blocked oxy...

Genes Play Major Role in Determining Individual's Sour Taste Perception

... whether individual differences in genes for these structures - such as the recently-discovered PKD ion channel - are correlated with individual differences in sensitivity to sourness. For any given candidate receptor, a strong association of genetic with perceptual variation would support the likelihood tha...

Protein Structure of Pathogens Associated With CF and TB Solved

Alzheimers Disease Enzyme may Interfere With Brain Function

...are transmitted via voltage-gated sodium channels, structures on the cell membrane that transmit electrochemical signal by admitting charged sodium particles into the cells interior. Sodium channels consist of an alpha subunit, which makes up the body of the channel, and one or two beta subunits that help to re...

Genetic Cause of Inherited Eye Diseases Identified
