Scientists devise way to measure RNA synthesis on the fly in a live cell
...ts have long known that RNA serves as an important intermediary
between DNA and the factories throughout the cell that produce proteins. Some biologists have recently begun to identify families of RNA molecules that also play a major role in determining when and how genes are turned on and off, but they have lack...
HIV accessory protein disables host immunity via receptor-protein intermediary
...vates it. "Ultimately, glucocorticoid is really an intermediary
between Vpr and PARP-1," explains Weiner. Weiner cites several potential clinical implications of this basic research. These findings show an immune function that had not been previously attributed to the glucocorticoid receptor. "With additional st...
Enzyme inhibitors block replication of SARS virus
...e esters entered the SARS protease site, formed an intermediary
compound, then inactivated the SARS enzyme. The findings were confirmed using mass spectrometry analysis of the enzyme intermediary. "These benzotriazole esters are relatively stable and act as suicide inhibitors," Wong said. "They block the enzym...
