the translation of genes into proteins, knowing more about its role(s) in the centrosome may help researchers better understand the progression of diseases such as cancer, which has been linked to abnormal centrosome numbers in tumor cells," says Pal...

New roles for growth factors: Enticing nerve cells to muscles
... nailed the growth factor FGF as the molecule that guides
a specific subgroup of motor neurons to connect to the muscles that line our spine and neck," says senior author Samuel Pfaff, Ph.D., a professor in the Gene Expression Laboratory, "but that piece by piece, we are uncovering general principles that e...
Queensland scientists identify molecule that links both sides of the brain
...dy is the first to identify a growth molecule that guides
young nerves away from the corpus callosum and towards their targets in the opposite hemisphere," Dr Cooper said. "We have shown that the Ryk receptor molecule facilitates the targeting of individual nerve fibres. "This process is critical for th...

Chemical guidance of T cells leads to immunologic memory and long-term immunity
