Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

...ates are confident these potential problems can be solved with further testing and some clever chemical engineering. Funding for this study was provided by The Australian National University. In addition to Sherburn, study authors include Elizabeth S. Barrett and Alison J. Edwards, also with Australian Nat...

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

...inds to the CD4 receptor and changes its shape was solved several years ago by another group. Harrison and Chen have now described gp120's structure before the shape change, yielding vital before-and-after information on how the molecule rearranges itself when it encounters the CD4 receptor. "Knowing how g...

Why do insects stop 'breathing'? To avoid damage from too much oxygen, say researchers

...igating the respiratory system of insects may have solved a mystery that has intrigued physiologists for decades: why insects routinely stop breathing for minutes at a time. Challenging previous theories, researchers at UC Irvine and Humboldt University propose that insects such as grasshoppers, moths, but...

Scientists solve structure of key protein in innate immune response

...nate immune response." Dr. Lee and his colleagues solved the three-dimensional crystal structure of CD14, providing crucial insights into how the receptor binds to its ligands. "Our structure shows that CD14 has a large hydrophobic pocket near its amino terminus," says Dr. Lee. "We propose that this pocket...

Cooperation is key—a new way of looking at MicroRNA and how it controls gene expression

...ew had been identified. When the human genome was solved and published in 2001, many scientists thought that the task of finding the mRNA to which the microRNA bound would be relatively straightforward. After all, a short stretch of nucleotides like a microRNA should be expected to bind to a piece of RNA o...

Biochemists report discovery of structure of major piece of telomerase; implications for cancer

...lar Carla Theimer and graduate student Craig Blois solved the structure of an essential piece of this RNA. Telomerase has been extremely difficult to characterize structurally because of its size and complexity, and its low level in normal cells. "This is a unique RNA structure, with distinctive features ...

Researchers make surprise discovery that some neurons can transmit three signals at once

... now, the Pittsburgh researchers believe they have solved some of the mystery. During this crucial period, immature inhibitory synapses also release the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate, and by mimicking excitatory synapses, can stimulate NMDA receptors. "It first appeared odd to us that an immature i...

Understanding how bacteria communicate may help scientists prevent disease

... 2004, Kulkarni and his collaborators at Princeton solved the mystery. Using bioinformatics and modeling, Kulkarni drafted theoretical predictions for the missing regulatory element, which were confirmed experimentally by his colleagues at Princeton. "We showed that the crucial missing element was a group ...

Researchers reveal secret of key protein in brain and heart function

Brown University biologists have solved the structure of a critical piece of synapse-associated protein 97 (SAP97) found in abundance in the heart and head, where it is believed to play a role in everything from cardiac contractions to memory creation. Results are published in The Journal ...

Vitamin A's paradoxical role in influencing symmetry during embryonic development revealed

...itute for Biological Studies report that they have solved one of the "holy grail" puzzles of developmental biology: the existence of a mechanism that insures that the exterior of our bodies is symmetrical while inner organs are arranged asymmetrically. In research with zebra fish, as a model for human biol...

Scientists take aim at virulent bacteria by decoding machinery of key control enzyme

...orton, PhD, Research Assistant Professor, have now solved the co-crystal structure of the Dam enzyme in complex with DNA, which has allowed them to observe exactly how the enzyme finds its target on bacterial DNA. The Dam enzyme begins by binding non-specifically to DNA, but once it fastens tightly, it gli...

Scripps research scientists solve structure of a critical innate immune system protein

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have solved the structure of a crucial human immune system mol... The structure that Wilson and his colleagues have solved shows how the repeating leucine-rich repeat motifs assembled in TLR3 in never-before-seen detail. Th...
