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...

Mitochondria link metabolism and epigenetics in haematopoiesis

Due to their varied metabolic and signalling roles, mitochondria are important in mediating cell behaviour. By altering mitochondrial function, two studies now identify metabolite-induced epigenetic c...

Study examines relationship between statin use and heart structure, function

Statins are associated with improved heart structure and function, according to research presented today at EuroCMR 2017. The benefits were above and beyond the cholesterol lowering effect of statins.

Simple pre-treatment ensures safe neural cell transplants

Stem cell and progenitor cell neural studies have shown great promise for cell-based treatments of central nervous system disorders. However while transplants have demonstrated initial success in retr...

The microRNA miR-31 inhibits CD8+ T cell function in chronic viral infection

Wucherpfennig and colleagues show that the microRNA miR-31 increases the sensitivity of T cells to type I interferons, which interferes with effector T cell function during chronic infection.

In-cell NMR: A new application

(International Union of Crystallography) The structure of biological macromolecules is critical to understanding their function, mode of interaction and relationship with their neighbours, and how phy...

OX40: Structure and function - What questions remain?

OX40 is a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein, reported nearly 30 years ago as a cell surface antigen expressed on activated T cells. Since its discovery, it has been validated as a bone fide costimulat...

Roles of PECAM-1 in cell function and disease progression.

Platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 (PECAM-1/CD31) belongs to immunoglobulin superfamily, which is key factor for adhesion and accumulation of platelets. It is proved that PECAM-1 is closely...

The Centrosome as the Main Integrator of Endothelial Cell Functional Activity.

The centrosome is an intracellular structure of the animal cell responsible for organization of cytoplasmic microtubules. According to modern concepts, the centrosome is a very important integral elem...

Impact of the anti-aquaporin-4 autoantibody on inner retinal structure, function and structure-function associations in Japanese patients with optic neuritis.

An autoantibody against aquaporin-4 (AQP4 Ab) is highly specific for neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder and plays a pathogenic role in this disease. The purpose of this study was to investigate th...

A cell is more than the sum of its (dilute) parts: A brief history of quinary structure.

Most knowledge of protein structure and function is derived from experiments performed with purified protein resuspended in dilute, buffered solutions. However, proteins function in the crowded, compl...
