Huntingtin functions as a scaffold for selective macroautophagy

Zhang, Cuervo and colleagues find that Huntingtin (Htt), which is commonly mutated in Huntington disease, regulates selective autophagy. Htt enhances interactions between p62, LC3 and ubiquitylated ca...

New research unlocks a mystery of albinism

Newly published research provides the first demonstration of how a genetic mutation associated with a common form of albinism leads to the lack of melanin pigments that characterizes the condition.

Biochemistry: Sunlight damages DNA in the dark

Sunlight can cause cancer-related DNA damage hours after light exposure, owing to a skin pigment that was largely thought to be protective.Douglas Brash at Yale University School of Medicine in New Ha...

Scientists finally discover molecular pathway behind albinism

ULK1: A Promising Biomarker in Predicting Poor Prognosis and Therapeutic Response in Human Nasopharygeal Carcinoma.

Plenty of studies have established that dysregulation of autophagy plays an essential role in cancer progression. The autophagy-related proteins have been reported to be closely associated with human ...

Keratinocyte-derived laminin-332 promotes melanin synthesis via regulation of tyrosine uptake.

Melanocytes, which produce the pigment melanin, are known to be closely regulated by neighboring keratinocytes. However, how keratinocytes regulate melanin production is unclear. Here, we report that ...

Evolutionary and biomedical consequences of internal melanins.

The adaptive function of melanin located in the integument is well known. Although pigments are also deposited in various internal organs, their function is unclear. A review of the literature reveale...

Structure of the human autophagy initiating kinase ULK1 in complex with potent inhibitors.

Autophagy is a conserved cellular process that involves the degradation of cellular components for energy maintenance and cytoplasmic quality control that has recently gained interest as a novel targe...

Dopamine-melanin nanofilms for biomimetic structural coloration.

This article describes the formation of dopamine-melanin thin films (50 - 200 nm thick) at an air/dopamine solution interface under static conditions. Beneath these films, spherical melanin granules f...
