DNA Molecules Used To Assemble Nanoparticles

...r end. Folate receptors are over-expressed on the surface of cancer cells, so these dendrimer clusters would tend to flock to the diseased cells. The other end of the complex carries a fluorescent protein so that the researchers can track their movement. A series of experiments using cell sorters, 3-D micr...

...mplex (MHC) molecules. Most helper T cells carry a surface protein called CD4, which is attracted to class II MHC. Killer cells carry the CD8 protein, attracted to class I MHC. However, the underlying molecular pathways that regulate this process have remained obscure. "The mutant HD mice are unable to gene...

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

...nize and bind to the so-called CD4 receptor on the surface of the cell HIV wants to infect. Once it binds, gp120 undergoes a shape change, which signals a companion protein, gp41, to begin a set of actions that enable HIV's membrane to fuse with the target cell's membrane. This fusion of membranes allows HIV...

Mouse brain cells rapidly recover after Alzheimer's plaques are cleared

Then Brendza closely monitored the swellingsfor three days."We thought that clearing the plaques would halt the progression of...

Genome of deadly amoeba shows surprising complexity, evidence of lateral gene transfer

...The project also identified some large families of surface proteins that may help mediate the amoeba's ability to evade the human immune system. This could explain why the parasite can stay hidden in the body for years at a time. Such information may help researchers find better means to harness the immune s...
