An HIV Protein Plays a Surprising Role in Gene Activation

...karyotes have three types of RNA polymerases, each charged with transcribing different types of genetic elements. RNA polymerase II transcribes protein-coding genes. RNA polymerases join with so-called general transcription factors to form a pre-initiation complex (PIC) on the gene's promoter, where it binds...

Spider Venom Could Yield Eco-Friendly Insecticides

... (Ion channels allow the movement of ions -- small charged molecules -- across cell membranes.) His next challenge is to use this information to design insecticides that specifically target insect pests without affecting vertebrates. One approach is to create chemical insecticides that mimic the action of s...

Probing The Promise And Perils Of Nanoparticles

...." More recently, Leroueil studied other types of charged nanoparticles called polycationic polymers—already being used to deliver drugs and genes—to see if they behaved like dendrimers. "It turns out that they cause the same permeability and, in general, they cause membrane destruction as well," said Banas...

South African Tribunal Asks For Damages Estimates in GSK AIDS Drug Case

... the complaint, AHF and others allege that GSK has charged excessive prices for AIDS drugs to the detriment of South Africans with HIV/AIDS and in violation of the Competition Act. “South Africans know that AIDS drugs are sadly out of reach for most of them because of pricing actions like GSK’s,?said Swazi ...

Scripps scientists find potential for catastrophic shifts in Pacific ecosystems

Surprisingly, it relates to many disciplines involving complex webs of mutually interacting parts, such as ecosystems and world financial markets, which have the potential for unex...

Molecular thermometers on skin cells detect heat and camphor

...nd this causes them to open and allow electrically charged ions to pass through and cause an electrical potential that signals the brain.

The small molecule ATP activates the ion channel chosen by the researchers, so ATP became the key. To keep the ATP from binding to the ion channel and jump-starting the nerve cell's activity before the prope...

Engineers improve plastic's potential for use in implants by linking it to biological material

...hich in T59 appeared to be drawn to the positively charged surface of the polypyrrole the way magnets of opposite charges cling together. Yet other peptides containing aspartic acid didn't attach to polypyrrole, leading the researchers to speculate that something contributed by the other amino acids in T59 i...
