Research advances quest for HIV-1 vaccine

... of the complex formed when 4E10 binds to gp41 and determining how interaction of 4E10 with gp41 influences the virus. X-ray crystallography was used to determine the structure of the complex formed by association of 4E10 with a peptide fragment that is identical to the section of gp41 that the antibody recogni...

Scientists seek answers on what activates deadly anthrax spores

...herapeutic agents to prevent anthrax. Interest in determining how to stop anthrax remains high, not only after the 2001 attacks through the mail that resulted in 18 cases and five deaths, but also after the recent scare at two military mailroom facilities when anthrax alarms went off. The group also would like...

Yale Scientists Find MicroRNA Regulates Ras Cancer Gene

... regulators of development, that control processes determining cell type and cell death. "The let-7 microRNA regulates Ras by binding to the message for Ras and likely inhibits translation of the Ras protein," said Slack. "The microRNA does not revert a mutated Ras to normal; instead it acts like a brake on an ...

"Thus far, genes that appear to be responsive to alcohol include genes involved in the intracellular signaling process (which can alter how the neuron functions),...

The Shapes Of Life: NIGMS Project Yields More Than 1,000 Protein Structures

...ture Initiative (PSI), a national program aimed at determining the three-dimensional shapes of a wide range of proteins, has now determined more than 1,000 different structures. These structures will shed light on how proteins function in many life processes and could lead to targets for the development of new m...

Puzzles include Alaska's Kvichak River, the world's most important salmon-producing river. It has had runs of more than 50 million sockeye salmo...

Fibril Shape Is The Basis Of Prion Strains And Cross-species Prion Infection

...particular shape of a prion amyloid fibril was the determining factor in whether one species of yeast could infect another yeast species. Just as in the case with the preseeded mice fibrils, a particular fibril shape in Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast allowed prion transmission to Candida albicans yeast. The tra...
