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

...pile up in the ER membrane, or when something goes wrong with the folding process, the entire system can get clogged with unfolded proteins. To prevent this, the cell activates the unfolded protein response (UPR). "The UPR has three main aspects," Kaufman explains. "First, it signals the nucleus to stop s...

Knowing more about the earliest predictors of macular degeneration could help doctors treat the disease before ...

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