Timing is everything: First step in protein building revealed

...he cell or lead todisease."The ribosome is the end stage of gene expression, and gene expressionkeeps us alive and causes disease," says Lorsch. "If we can betterunderstand how the ribosome works, perhaps we can harness it to help usfix disease."Already, scientists knew that without eIF1, the ribosome can ...

Transplantation Of Monkey Embryonic Stem Cells Reverses Parkinson Disease In Primates

The findings in epilepsy set the stage for scientists to evaluate other conditions in which gene-based diagnostics might help determine the optimum dosage of particular therapies for particular patients, Goldstein said. "For most drugs we know a lot about how and where they act in the bo...

Needling Chromosomes Reveals Cell Division Secret

Emissive polymersomes perform much like in vivo imaging systems that use semiconductor-based "quantum dots." These quantum dots, however, are ...

New Insights Into HIV Immunity Suggest Alternative Approach to Vaccines
