MELK reads protein networks in the context of whole, intact cells, providing an image of protein locations in the cell, or the cells protein topology. MELK enables the researcher to simultaneously d...

Experimental therapy stops allergic reactions in mice

...its two active parts are connected, or fused, by a linking molecule. As it is constructed now, GE2 contains generic active parts that indiscriminately block reactions to any allergen, Dr. Saxon says. However, a fusion protein like GE2 could be designed to contain a specific allergen such as a peanut protein...
