UNC findings may help explain cause of most common movement disorder

...messages throughout the body. Two alpha-1 subunits combine with three other proteins to form the most common type of GABA-A receptor, but this subunit is absolutely required for these GABA-A receptors to exist in brain, Morrow said. The mice lacking alpha-1 subunits have about 50 percent fewer GABA-A recept...

Molecular motors cooperate in moving cellular cargo, study shows

...ng the peroxisome." In the future, Selvin wants to combine FIONA and an optical trap technique to monitor the speed and direction of a peroxisome, and the force acting upon it. "By measuring force we can determine how many molecular motors are working together," Selvin said. "This will help us further unders...

Microarrays as phenotype

...tarvation. The pathway enables the single cells to combine into a multi-cell organism. "We pretended we did not know the order of genes in the pathway," said Shaulsky. "We were able to reconstruct the pathway from the microarray data. This means the microarray provides a good phenotype that is quantitative. ...

Gene regions beyond protein instructions important in disease
