Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

...ction in HIV transcription. The authors propose a cycle of transcriptional transactivation in which SIRT1 deacetylates Tat at the HIV promoter. Deacetylated Tat associates with CyclinT1 and TAR, and leads to transcription. Tat acetylation dissociates Tat from CyclinT1 and TAR, and transfers Tat to the elo...

Molecular machine may lead to new drugs to combat human diseases

... Two intron structures in different stages of the cycle have been crystallized previously, and the targeted trans-splicing technique has been used to repair hemoglobin infected with sickle cell anemia. The new structure provides scientists with tools to expand on ways to harness this molecular machine, Go...

"We could determine whether a drug has arrived where it is supposed to, and if it is having the desired impac...

Scientists discover that host cell lipids facilitate bacterial movement

...The bacteria then enter the new cell and begin the cycle anew. Essentially Listeria takes over or hijacks the host cell's actin cytoskeleton to move within cells, and to spread from cell to cell." In most cells, two membrane lipids, PIP2 and PIP3, are associated with the formation of new actin filaments. ...

Effective Cancer Treatments Follow The Clock

... on a 24-hour, circadian (Latin for "about a day") cycle that governs functions like sleeping and waking, rest and activity, fluid balance, body temperature, cardiac output, oxygen consumption and endocrine gland secretion.
