A team of researchers from the University of Texas at Austin have discovered a new CRISPR-associated (Cas) protein that can […]

Microprotein origins contribute to understanding of human evolution

A recent study has revealed several microprotein-encoding genes that have arisen de novo from non-coding sequences within the human genome. […]

Multimodal tissue characterisation with spatial protein and transcriptome sequencing

A new study, published in Nature Biotechnology, presents Spatial PrOtein and Transcriptome Sequencing (SPOTS) for high throughput combined spatial transcriptomics […]

SNO proteins identified as drivers of Alzheimer’s disease in women

Researchers have unlocked new insights into the molecular mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), which may explain why women are at […]

Muscle growth boosted with new protein fragment

Researchers have investigated a potential new way to boost muscle growth and regeneration. The study, published in the Computational and […]

New fluorescent protein penetrates deeper into biological tissue

Researchers have developed a small fluorescent protein that can penetrate deep into biological tissue. The study, published in Nature Methods, describes […]

‘Druggable’ pockets in SARS-CoV-2 protein offer new therapeutic targets

The COVID-19 pandemic was controlled due to the rapid development of new vaccines and anti-viral drugs. However, the emergence of […]

Meta AI expands protein prediction capabilities to challenge AlphaFold

The understanding of protein structure and function is central to our knowledge of many biological processes, yet a tiny percentage […]

Finger-like proteins play a dual role in breast cancer progression

Despite the availability of effective treatment to combat the early stages of the disease, breast cancer remains one of the […]

TET protein genes linked to cancer growth

Researchers at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology have uncovered how the deletion of TET (ten-eleven translocation) protein genes can […]
