Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...swered is why the diatoms showed signs of nutrient stress before the iron and other nutrients were used up. Wells and his colleagues think they may know. For clues, they have looked to a discipline that is far removed from the sea. Soil contains lots of iron, but most of it stays locked up in minerals, as ...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

... "All these things disrupt protein folding and put stress on the cell. By doing so, they activate the UPR." Several years ago, Kaufman and his research colleagues discovered that IRE1 triggers the unfolded protein response by splicing a segment of messenger RNA called XBP1. This leads to production of a ne...
