Gab3 is required for IL-2 and IL-15-induced NK cell expansion and limits trophoblast invasion during pregnancy

INTRODUCTION The proteins of the Grb2-associated binding family (Gab) support the assembly of activated signal complexes by means of framework and docking functions. Gab family members consisting of Gab1-3 contain a highly conserved N-terminal pleckstrin homology domain (PH) as well as various phosphorylation sites specific for tyrosine kinases ( 1 – 3 ). The PH domain mediates the recruitment of …

Biologists rebuild the microtubules, which make up cell walls and spindles

PhD student Akanksha Thawani (left) discusses her research with molecular biologist Sabine Petry. Thawani, Petry and their colleagues at Princeton have been able to reconstruct the recipe for the fireworks of life, the branched microtubules that make up the cell walls, and the spindles for mitosis and meiosis.

Space Station Cell Study Searches for Causes of Severe Diseases

Dopaminergic neurons that grow in a culture dish (20x magnification). A skin biopsy of a patient with Parkinson's disease was reprogrammed into induced pluripotent stem cells. The stem cells were then differentiated into dopaminergic neurons (green), the same cells that are lost in Parkinson's patients. Work is underway to use these cells as a replacement for lost neurons to treat …

Study provides insight into sun-induced DNA damage and cell repair

Rad4 / XPC protein dynamically intervenes in the DNA duplex to produce the 6-4 photoproduct (6-4PP), an induced major DNA lesion to "open" and to recognize by sunlight. Here, a new structure is presented showing how the 6-4PP is completely rinsed out of the DNA double helix by the Rad4 / XPC protein, which initiates nucleotide excision repair. Picture credits: …
