Meeting the ethanol challenge: Scientists use supercomputer to target cellulose bottleneck
... cellulose remains slow and expensive. The central bottleneck
is the sluggish rate at which the cellulose enzyme complex breaks down tightly bound cellulose into sugars, which are then fermented into ethanol. To help unlock the cellulose bottleneck, a team of scientists has conducted molecular simulations at t...
Scientists get best look ever at water-life connection
...he way of proteins trying to meet -- it would be a bottleneck
in the process. And if it moved too fast, it couldn't connect with the protein at all. So I think this is nature's way of getting the interaction just right." ...
Researchers find docking sites for glucocorticoid receptor and Hsp90
...cademy of Sciences, also uncorks an almost 15-year bottleneck
in research caused by difficulties in deciphering the actions of a heat-shock protein known as Hsp90. Hsp90 belongs to a family of proteins called chaperones that help other proteins achieve and maintain their 3-D structure. Unlike most chaperones...
Scientists make first step towards 'holy grail' of crystallography
...on of high quality crystals has long posed a major bottleneck
for X-ray crystallography. This problem has become increasingly acute with the advent of structural genomics and proteomics which aim to determine the structures of thousands of proteins. Protein crystallography plays a major role in this understandi...
