Coming soon -- Protein synthesis without amino acids?
...e linking of an amino group with the acid group of individual
amino acids. Like pearls on a string, the amino acids then line up. However, to get to such a structure, it isnt absolutely necessary to start from amino acids. Imines, compounds with a carbon-nitrogen double bond, could be an ideal starting material...
New proteomics research promises to revolutionize biomedical discovery
...ding of the human proteome and the function of its individual
proteins. In this work, we have taken advantage of an intrinsic property of proteins in order to develop a method that we use to infer a putative function to many previously uncharacterized proteins, said Dr. Coulombe who is very excited by his te...

Immune system 'escape hatch' gives cancer cells traction
...T cells behaved. Using chemical tests in which individual
tumor cells can be tagged with a fluorescent dye that allows them to glow when they are not bound to T cells, Florida researchers measured the immune response in mice to various foreign proteins, with and without injections of MDSCs. They found an 8...
