Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with lethal toxin, UF research shows
...ponsible for gathering the components of actin and shuttling
them to the center of the cell, where they are assembled into filaments. "We've discovered that through this pathway, lethal toxin blocks the function of a protein that regulates how actin assembles," said Southwick, who believes his findings may ...
Researchers publish first marsupial genome sequence
... "Transposons have a restless lifestyle, often shuttling
themselves from one chromosome to another," said the study's first author Tarjei Mikkelsen, a Broad Institute researcher. "It is now clear that in their travels, they are disseminating crucial genetic innovations around the genome." Other importa...
Is there a pilot in the insect?
...can then be understood more exactly by permanently shuttling
between biology and robotics. These principles have been tried and tested for millions of years, and today they need to be applied to aerospace, because the phases in which an airship or a space module navigates close to the ground are absolutely cr...
'Shuttling' protein possibly key to resilience of cancer cells
...l surrounding the nucleus. Moreover, the protein's shuttling
is controlled by the presence of another protein i... causing the ATF2 to bind with c-Jun, stopping the shuttling
process and causing cell death. The c-Jun-ATF2 heterodimers cause more c-Jun protein to be produced,...
Movement of chromosome in nucleus visualized
...areas for different functions and molecular motors shuttling
components around. Researchers from the University of Illinois' Chicago and Urbana-Champaign campuses now offer the first imaging evidence from live cells of ongoing organization and transport within the cell nucleus. Genes that are active are loca...
Digging in the dirt for life's biochemical foundations
...four-lane highway than a two-track country road in shuttling
the nitrogen into plant roots. More than a third of the total nitrogen taken up by the plants came by way of the fungus, Shachar-Hill and his collaborators report in the June 9 issue of Nature. "The really fascinating part is the mechanism underlyin...
Weill Cornell Research Reveals Secrets Of Trafficking Within Cells
...someone becoming obese." Endocytosis involves the shuttling
back and forth of vesicles (sac-like objects) filled with nutrients, neurotransmitters, or other compounds; usually from the cell surface to the cell interior. Previous work at Dr. Ryan's lab has helped clarify the role of some of the key players in...
