Penn researchers discover how key protein stops inflammation

...boratory Medicine, Carmody and others searched for clues as to how Bcl-3 controls inflammation by examining how Bcl-3-deficient mouse cells respond to infection. Their studies revealed that Bcl-3 interacts with p50, a protein that inhibits gene transcription by binding to DNA. p50 turns off the DNA regio...

This work gives us clues to the role of this protein and we hope that future studies will identify the precise role that may provide an opportunity to disable this protein and may identify a new antibiotic that could limit the infections that can be fatal in CF patients, Gul...

White blood cells are picky about sugar

...eir enemies, so Rubin-Bejerano decided to look for clues to their response in this mixture. She identified several proteins in serum that bind to beta-1,6-glucan, but not beta-1,3-glucan, and then pinpointed a molecule on the surface of the neutrophil that recognizes these proteins. To link her experimen...
