New Signalling Pathway in Neurons

Memphis, TN — Neurodegenerative diseases, such as various forms of senile dementia or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), have one thing in common: large amounts of certain RNA-protein complexes (snRNPs)...

Reactivating Ageing Stem Cells in the Brain

Zürich, Switzerland — The stem cells in our brain generate new neurons throughout life, for example in the hippocampus. This region of the brain plays a key role for a range of memory processes. With...

Gearbox for Tumour Cell Identity Changes

Berlin, Germany — Cancer cells can experience stress. They have to contend with attacks by the immune system or with anti-cancer therapeutics. If they attempt to colonize other tissues, they have to...

A Gene Provides Both Protection and Destruction

Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany — The family of ENDOU enzymes is found in most organisms, yet its functions are only poorly understood. In humans, it has been connected with cancer. RNA viruses, such...

Pore-Like Proteins Designed from Scratch

Seattle, WA — In a milestone for biomolecular design, a team of scientists has succeeded in creating new proteins that adopt one of the most complex folds known to molecular biology. These designer...

Explainable AI for Decoding Genome Biology

Kansas City, MO — Researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, in collaboration with colleagues at Stanford University and Technical University of Munich have developed advanced explainable...

Evolution’s Game of Rock-Paper-Scissors

Bethlehem, PA — If B is better than A, and C is better than B, it follows by the transitive property that C is better than A. And, yet, this is not always the case. Every kid is familiar with the Rock-Paper-Scissors...

A Glimpse into the Formation of Mitoribosome

Solna, Sweden — The mitochondrial ribosome is an intricate machine that translates the organellar genome into functional proteins. The formation of the mitochondrial ribosome is a hierarchical process...

A Recipe for Regenerating Bioengineered Hair

Tokyo, Japan — Researchers at the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research in Japan have discovered a recipe for continuous cyclical regeneration of cultured hair follicles from hair follicle...
