Controlling protein diversity

...n previous studies that hormones like estrogen and progesterone can change the amounts of proteins made by their target genes. When hormone binds to receptors inside the cells, they are activated to seek out target genes. They then recruit the coactivators ?in this case CAPERá and CAPERâ. These coactivators not o...

By creating molecular bridge, scientists change function of a protein

...ise fashion, Zhao said. They used testosterone and progesterone to build the bridge. The receptor was gradually altered to accept one steroid, then another, until accepting the desired one -- corticosterone, a potent glucocoticoid. In total, Zhao and Chen did four rounds of random mutagenesis and screened about ...

Molecular signature may identify cisplatin-sensitive breast tumors

...nt of breast tumors that have neither estrogen nor progesterone receptors and also do not overexpress HER2. Since these so-called "triple-negative" tumors are treatable with neither Herceptin nor antiestrogen drugs, the prognosis for patients with the tumors has been poor. Triple-negative tumors are the most ...
