Mouse study shows NPAS3 and NPAS1 genes may be linked to psychosis
... excitatory neurons, which pass electrical signals amongst
themselves and act as the brain's wiring. The role of inhibitory interneurons, on the other hand, is to dampen the activity of excitatory neurons. The NPAS1 and NPAS3 proteins are transcription factors that can activate or deactivate other genes....
Stuck on you: Scientists lay bare secrets of bacterial attachment proteins
...Their work helps to resolve a long-standing debate amongst
microbiologists; it leads to the reclassifying of the Dr Adhesins into a group of bacterial protein appendages known as 'fimbriae'. These appendages are very difficult to see using the available electron microscopy techniques, and were originally cl...
