"We saw large swellings in their axons. And when we looked at those swellings using electron microscopy and biochemical markers, they looked just l...

Timing is everything: First step in protein building revealed

Plants, animals share molecular growth mechanisms

... genes have survived through time as multicellular life evolved, they have been conserved in both plants and animals, Szymanski said. So, some of the plant proteins that comprise the ARP2/3 and the WAVE complexes are interchangeable with proteins in animals. Others proteins are not interchangeable, and Sz...
