Chemists unlock secret to activating tumor suppressor gene

..., Cho explained. To treat this condition, one must add the PTEN gene to the cell which lacks it, but the resulting PTEN protein must be in its active form, he said. "We discovered what activates the protein and can actually provide activated PTEN. We also discovered how PTEN rapidly degrades in a cell a...

Researchers combine electronics with living cell to create potential toxicity sensor

Anthropologist predicts major threat to species within 50 years

... colleagues warn that the United States alone will add at least 10 additional species to the "threatened" list within 50 years.

Insulin study sheds light on physics of crystal growth

...ed, Vekilov says. As crystals grow, new molecules add on to the edge of a layer, called a "step." Molecules tend to aggregate and pile up unevenly from one spot on the step, building up in clumps in a process called step bunching.
