Single Molecule Imaging Reveals How Telomerase Finds and Binds to the Telomere

Genomics researchers have combined the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technique with advanced single-molecule imaging technology to demonstrate how the enzyme telomerase finds and attaches to the telomere, the region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at each end of a chromosome, which protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration or from fusion with neighboring chromosomes.

Release of ApoE4 Fragments and Increased Tau Protein Contribute to Risk of Alzheimer's Disease

Results of a recent study suggested that the interaction between apolipoprotein E4 (ApoE4) and the enzyme high-temperature requirement serine peptidase A1 (HtrA1) was linked in some fashion to the development of late onset Alzheimer's disease (AD). More...

Researchers Identify Cell Surface Protein Required for Norovirus Infection

Molecular virologists working with a mouse norovirus strain identified and characterized a cell surface protein that was required by the virus to gain entry into the host cell. More...

Kinase Domain Mutation Causes Protein Malfunction and Tumor Development

A team of chemical biologists has generated the first molecular map of the protein doublecortin kinase like domain 1 (DCLK1), a factor linked to more than 10% of gastric cancers that has also been found in kidney, rectal, and pancreatic cancers. More...
