Essential Science: World Wide Web reveals protein secrets

What can the structure of the World Wide Web tell scientists about protein structures? Quite a bit according to Ohio State University researchers. The scientists have discovered molecular 'add-ons' that customize key protein interfaces.

New clues to stopping breast cancer

A new study suggests that a protein has a significant effect on the risk that breast cancer will spread. The study also showed that lowering the protein’s level could reduce chances for the disease to extend beyond the initial tumor.

Diabetes causing proteins examined

All mammals make this same protein called amylin, and it only differs a little bit from species to species. This difference can be enough for an animal to develop type 2 diabetes.

New finding offers clues about emerging asthma

Data suggests that a common blood-clotting protein plays a role in allergic asthma. The protein interacts with the immune system triggering respiratory attacks.

Nature study shows synthesis of RNA building-blocks is possible

A team from Manchester University have been able to synthesise two of the four building blocks of Ribo-Nucleic Acid (RNA), the self-replicating molecule that is widely believed to be the original molecule of life.

Toronto Researchers Can Predict Who Will Survive Breast Cancer

Scientists now have the knowledge on who will survive breast cancer and who will most likely die from the disease. The way various proteins interact with tumors can help predict a woman's chances.

Harvard Releases New List of Proteins That HIV Virus Attacks

The HIV virus is a simple one, consisting of just nine genes. That simple virus though is a monster in how it takes over other cells destroying them so it can multiply. As a virus it's top dog in a doggy eat dog world of blood and proteins.

Mutated proteins autism link finds some answers, but some big questions remain

Another of the childhood monsters is becoming a bit more understandable. Two proteins, called Neuroligin 1 and 2, are associated with nervous excitation and inhibition respectively.

Low-protein diet might reduce cancer risk

In yet another discovery in favor of a vegetarian diet, a diet relatively low in protein and calories is more likely to lead to lower blood levels of several hormones and other substances that have been tied to certain cancers
