Scientists reveal structure of gateways to gene control
...per by Pugh's team marks the leading edge of a new wave
of anticipated discoveries about gene regulation, made possible by recently developed laboratory equipment for high-volume, or massively parallel, DNA sequencing. "Traditional DNA sequencing methods processed one DNA strand at a time, but now we can...

Nicotine rush hinges on sugar in neurons
...ne, Chen said. But the molecular basis of such a wave
in nAChR or any other protein has not been clearly established. Instead, the Chen group’s study of crystal structure suggested a simple mechanical role for sugar molecules attached to the surface of the receptor. “They serve as the link between t...
