Serine Threonine protein kinase C PKC

The serine/threonine protein kinase C (PKC) family consists of at least 11 mammalian isozymes belonging to a larger subclass of protein kinases termed the adenine-guanine-cytosine (AGC) kinases. PK...

Antibody classes

An antibody, also known as an immunoglobulin, is a large Y-shaped protein used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses. The antibody recognizes a...

Tumor Antigens

Tumor antigen is an antigenic substance produced in tumor cells, i.e., it triggers an immune response in the host. Tumor antigens are useful in identifying tumor cells and are potential candidates f...

Evolutionary link between protein structure and function discovered

Proteins are more than a dietary requirement. This diverse set of molecules powers nearly all of the cellular operations in a living organism. Scientists may know the structure of a protein or its fun...

Discovery of a unique subcellular structure determining the orientation of cell division

(National Institutes of Natural Sciences) The work by Negishi et al., published recently in the electronic journal eLife, has revealed that in the sea squirt embryo, the orientation of the cell divisi...

Study examines heart structure, function of NBA players

An analysis of the cardiac structure and function of more than 500 National Basketball Association (NBA) players provides information that can be incorporated into clinical assessments for the prevent...

Liquid order: Fluid self-organizes into structure that controls cell growth, health

Although known since the 1830s as a round, dark spot in a cell's nucleus, only recently has the nucleolus gotten its full due. Scientists have now discovered how the nucleolus, an organelle with the c...

Spatial structure, cooperation and competition in biofilms

Microbial biofilms exhibit vast complexity in terms of both resident species composition and phenotypic diversity. Here, Foster and colleagues discuss theoretical and experimental work that reveals ho...

Breast is best for premature babies' hearts, study confirms

Breastfeeding premature babies improves long-term heart structure and function, an new study has found. And in those fed a combination of breastmilk and formula, the more breastmilk consumed in the di...

Scientists Discover the Evolutionary Link Between Protein Structure and Function

Scientists may know the structure of a protein or its function, but haven't always been able to link the two

Epigenetic control of adult stem cell function

The role of epigenetic regulation in adult stem cell function depends on the specific tissue and factor, but it commonly affects stem cell maintenance, self-renewal and differentiation without disrupt...

Hardwiring Stem Cell Communication through Tissue Structure.

Adult stem cells across diverse organs self-renew and differentiate to maintain tissue homeostasis. How stem cells receive input to preserve tissue structure and function largely relies on their commu...

Expanding the Range of Protein Function at the Far end of the Order-Structure Continuum.

The traditional view of the structure-function paradigm is that a protein's function is inextricably linked to a well-defined, three-dimensional structure, which is determined by the protein's primary...

Impact of type 2 diabetes and duration of type 2 diabetes on cardiac structure and function.

Contemporary treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) has improved patient outcome and may also have affected myocardial structure and function. We aimed to describe the effect of T2D and T2D duration on ca...

Lost in Translation: Preserving Satellite Cell Function with Global Translational Control.

Quiescence is highly regulated to preserve stem cell function. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Zismanov et al. (2016) show that P-eIF2α, a translational initiation factor, reinforces the quiescent ...

Kinetochore assembly and function through the cell cycle.

The kinetochore is an essential structure for the chromosome segregation machinery in eukaryotes; it serves as a bridge between the spindle microtubules and chromosomes. The kinetochore consists of mu...
