Structure of protein nanoturbine revealed

Each protein subunit has a different color. V1 domain is top, Vo bottom, peripheral stems left and right. The background shows a wind powered water pump. Picture credits: IST Austria, 2019 Cells rely on protein complexes known as ATP synthases or ATPases for their energy requirements. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules drive most life-sustaining processes. The structural biologist Professor Leonid Sazanov …

AI makes key protein research a million times faster

Proteins, as shown in 3D computer models, are highly complex biological molecules. Mohammed AlQuraishi / Harvard Medical School Protein folding has been a well-known problem for decades: how do you determine the exact structure of these massive molecules that defines our DNA? Now the artificial intelligence answers us much faster. Harvard Medical School biologist Mohammed AlQuraishi has used the latest …

DNA Barcoding at the Protein Level Identifies Key Cancer Immunity Genes

A novel technology for simultaneously analyzing the functions of hundreds of genes at single-cell resolution has been developed by scientists at Mount Sinai Hospital. The method relies on a barcoding approach using a novel protein. Since the sequencing of the first human genome in the early 2000s yielded a lot more than 20,000 protein-coding genes, scientists were not yet able …

Migratory birds rely on the magnetic compass in their eye

Have you ever wondered how birds know how to fly south for the winter and then return to the north every summer? Navigation is based on different senses: many birds use a sun compass, others rely on visual landmarks and olfactory cues Some trust magnetoreception – the ability to detect a magnetic field to sense direction, altitude or position. (Unfortunately, …
