Jul. 25, 2019—Investigators have discovered how a DNA repair pathway protein shields sites of damage to avoid mutations and maintain genome integrity.
May. 29, 2019—P-glycoprotein distinguishes between chemicals that it will expel from a cell and inhibitors that block its action.
Feb. 15, 2018—Eric Gouaux, PhD, whose work has helped reveal the molecular mechanisms by which nerve cells communicate, will deliver the next Flexner Discovery Lecture Thursday, Feb. 22.
Feb. 23, 2017—DNA replication is an extraordinarily complex multi-step process that makes copies of the body’s genetic blueprint. It is necessary for growth and essential to life. Now researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and Vanderbilt University have found evidence that one of those steps may involve the telephone-like transmission of electrical signals regulated by a chemical “switch.”
