A new approach opens the door to a greater understanding of protein-microbe interactions.
Whitehead Institute researchers find many transcription factors bind RNA, which fine-tunes their regulation of gene expression, suggesting new therapeutic opportunities.
Scientists pinpoint where thousands of individual proteins are made in intact tissue and single cells
A new technology called RIBOmap can give researchers valuable insight into how protein production in animal and human tissue is altered in disease.
The disorganized arrangement of the proteins in light-harvesting complexes is the key to their extreme efficiency.
Scientists find a protein common to flies and people is essential for supporting the structure of axons that neurons project to make circuit connections.
These tunable proteins could be used to create new materials with specific mechanical properties, like toughness or flexibility.
With further development, the programmable system could be used in a range of applications including gene and cancer therapies.
MIT engineers find specialized nanoparticles can quickly and inexpensively isolate proteins from a bioreactor.
Using these engineered proteins, researchers can record histories that reveal when certain genes are activated or how cells respond to a drug.
