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...

EU court says unfertilized ova not human embryos

An ovum whose development has been stimulated without fertilization and which is not capable of becoming a human being cannot be considered a human embryo, argued Advocate General Cruz Villalon from t...

Impact of genomic damage and ageing on stem cell function

In the second Review in our Genomic Instability series, Rudolph and colleagues discuss how the genomic damage that accumulates during ageing affects stem cell function through both cell-intrinsic and...

Insights into RNA structure and function from genome-wide studies

Recent technological advances have enabled the probing of RNA structure across the transcriptomes of various species in vitro and in vivo. This Review discusses our latest understanding of how RNA str...

New cell models for tracking body clock gene function will help find novel meds

(University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine) Researchers have developed a new cell model that tracks and reports clock gene function. These engineered cells can be used with inexpensive, off-the-sh...

Researchers unravel function of proteins involved in cell metabolism

UCPs or uncoupling proteins are present in mitochondria, the powerhouse of each cell in the body. The functions of most of the five known UCPs remain mysterious (UCP2-UCP5), whereby only the distinct...

Chromosomal study of couples with the history of recurrent spontaneous abortions with diagnosed blightded ovum.

Spontaneous abortion (SAb) is the most common complication of early pregnancy. Numerous risk factors are associated with an increased risk of pregnancy loss such as: Blighted ovum. The aim of this stu...

Endosperm transfer cell-specific genes and proteins: structure, function and applications in biotechnology.

Endosperm transfer cells (ETC) are one of four main types of cells in endosperm. A characteristic feature of ETC is the presence of cell wall in-growths that create an enlarged plasma membrane surface...

The Billion Cell Construct: Will Three-Dimensional Printing Get Us There?

How structure relates to function-across spatial scales, from the single molecule to the whole organism-is a central theme in biology. Bioengineers, however, wrestle with the converse question: will f...

Functional Architecture of the Retina: Development and Disease.

Structure and function are highly correlated in the vertebrate retina, a sensory tissue that is organized into cell layers with microcircuits working in parallel and together to encode visual informat...

The effect of natural and synthetic fatty acids on membrane structure, microdomain organization, cellular functions and human health.

This review deals with the effects of synthetic and natural fatty acids on the biophysical properties of membranes, and on their implication on cell function. Natural fatty acids are constituents of m...
