The use of crystallography allows us to 'see' the regulation of gene expression in bacteria.
Researchers at IRB Barcelona describe the molecular mechanisms that define distinct territories in the intestinal epithelium.
These molecular mechanisms could be highly relevant in the development of malignant tumors.
Two quests, one looking into adhesion molecules to gain insight into compartmentalization in the Drosophila wing and the other aiming to discover how the cytoskeleton contributes to the development of compartment boundaries are now linked by a single microRNA, bentam.
These research results could revolutionize reproductive medicine and human stem cell studies.
The proteins p38α and p38β cooperate during embryo development. This finding suggests that they may also do so in other contexts such as cancer and cardiac diseases.
Researchers discover a new mechanism for regulation of gene expression in growing tissues.
Researchers at IRB Barcelona identify a new component that regulates the development of the tracheal system of the fly Drosophila melanogaster.
Researchers at IRB Barcelona have succeeded in following the correlated movements of ubiquitin’s amino acids located far away from one another to transfer information across protein structures.
Scientists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and at IRB Barcelona reveal the mechanism of action of a protein that is essential for life and is associated with disease.
Scientists at IRB Barcelona and the BSC discover that some proteins have chemical bonds that prevent the formation of toxic aggregates.
The study sheds light on how proteins have evolved to prevent the cell toxicity associated with toxic aggregates.
