Scientists Determine 3-D Crystal Structure Of Cancer-Causing Protein

.... 13 Nature . The determination of this structure clarifies earliermodels that sought to explain how the gene, called src , works and offersnew information for designing drug therapies to fight cancers. "These findings help to explain how tinkering with just one protein produceschanges in cell behav...

Birds Sing The 'Story Of Their Lives,' Theorize Duke Biologists

...him. The Duke zoologists said their theory clarifies a largely unansweredquestion until now: how exactly does a female bird benefit from choosing a matebased on his song.

Scientists discover how nerve cells move from target to target as they wire up the developing embryo

...ctive site but moves on. The new report in Science clarifies how the axon sifts the information in this "mixed signal," first extracting the attractive information, then dramatically switching its behavior to ignore attraction and only perceive the repulsive information. The new research also establishes that ...

Another transmembrane protein structure solved by Rockefeller scientists

...acKinnon and his colleagues' research also greatly clarifies existing biochemical analyses of the chloride channel, begun 20 years ago. "In a way, the potassium channel is very brash while the chloride channel is more subtle," says MacKinnon. "By working on both channels, we can start to see some themes that n...

Scientists identify 'master' molecule that controls action of many genes
