Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

...ith the folding process, the entire system can get clogged with unfolded proteins. To prevent this, the cell activates the unfolded protein response (UPR). "The UPR has three main aspects," Kaufman explains. "First, it signals the nucleus to stop synthesizing new proteins to give the ER time to catch up. Se...

Life detection instrument passes key test on road to Mars

...ofluidic channels in the capillary disks don't get clogged as readily as they do when used to test samples in Berkeley with its high bioorganic levels. That means they'll need fewer channels on the instrument that travels to Mars, and the scanner used to read out the data needn't be as elaborate. This transl...

'Sinkers' provide missing piece in deep-sea puzzle

...water through both filters, which typically become clogged after about 24 hours of use. At this point the larvacean abandons its house and swims off to create a new one.
