protein-protein interactions

This Week in Science

In Science this week: approach for tweaking photosynthesis, and more.

The two studies were part of larger project aimed at building a complete map of mitochondrial function and associated proteins. 

A University of Pittsburgh research team used a novel computational approach to uncover the protein interactions, which may be potential treatment targets.

This Week in PNAS

In PNAS this week: single-stranded cytosine deamination in E. coli, characterization of herpes simplex virus-1 microRNAs, and more.

Researchers develop a method to capture protein-protein interactions as well as to gauge how frequently they occur and their strength.

Using this technology, scientists were able to visualize BRCA1 protein interaction in a near-native environment and gain insight into its mechanics.

Harvard researchers have developed a model of human protein-protein interactions that they said can be used to study interactome organization.

The method combines post-translational modification data and 3D protein structure data to identify known and novel biologically significant hotspots.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Though most disease-causing genes are expressed throughout the body, they typically have an effect in one tissue, and unraveling that effect can reveal the molecular ba

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – German-Spanish DNA amplification and sequencing firm Sygnis today announced it has signed a patent transfer agreement providing certain rights to its Double Switch technology to Systasy Bioscience.
