News tips from ACS Chemical Biology

Highlights from the American Chemical Society journal, ACS Chemical Biology, are now available on EurekAlert!, the online science news service for reporters. Below is a link to the May 2007 edition.

In the current issue we learn:

  • That bacteria can communicate with each other through a process called quorum sensing. Through the use of a series small molecules the authors perturb this system to learn more about the process

  • About a tool that allows for more rapid drug discovery by combining several less specific molecular fragments into one larger, more specific fragment.

  • That two new peptides can be used to specifically label proteins, which allows scientists to further modify and study interesting proteins.

  • In the war on cancer you can never have too many weapons in your arsenal. The authors determined the crystal structure of a key cell cycle regulator complexed with an inhibitor molecule. By inhibiting the cell cycle, uncontrolled cell growth, a hallmark of cancer, can be halted.

  • About designed surfaces that allow for the growth of embryonic stem cells in an undifferentiated state.

  • About the state of the art in inhibiting kinases, proteins that are crucial for myriad cell processes and that are important in many types of cancers.
