Scientists ID molecular 'switch' in liver that triggers harmful effects of saturated and trans fats

...o-activator that was isolated in 2002. Experiments including the measurement of gene activity by microarrays showed that saturated and trans fats caused greater activity of the gene that makes PGC-1beta co-activator than did unsaturated fats. The research also showed that when the fats triggered PGC-1beta, th...

Elusive HIV shape change revealed; Key clue to how virus infects cells

...They surmounted considerable technical challenges, including difficulty in getting gp120 to form good crystals. "Without very well-ordered crystals you get a very blurry picture," explains Harrison. "It took a very long time, and lots of computational work, to get that picture to sharpen up enough to get an a...
