...ferent genes the researchers identified first were just
the tip of the iceberg. It now appears that there are between 500 and 1,000 separate receptor proteins on rat and mouse--and probably human--olfactory neurons. "That's really a lot of genes," Axel said. "It's 1 percent of the genome! This means that,...

don't work well," says Grahn. "Military applications will be enormous if the technology can be developed as a glove, much like a bicycling glove, that won't impede fine motor control. We also want to incorporate it into [a] boot in a way that won't i...
Protein energy profiles offer clues about amyloids
...s -- individual atoms of a protein must be aligned just
so if they are to function properly. Consequently, there is a direct relationship between a protein's shape and its function. The study of amyloids is complicated by the fact that the shape of very few proteins is known, the mechanics of protein fold...

15-20 percent of the Id protein impairs the stem cells' ability to rescue these embryonic mouse heart cells. These cells are very powerful, but also apparently very delicate." To understand the molecular basis of the rescue, the authors identified tw...
