Break it up: Polymer derived from material in shrimp’s shells could deliver anti-cancer drugs to tumor sites

Drug delivery is a recurring conundrum in cancer treatment. Scientists have developed many anti-cancer therapeutics. But those drugs often harm healthy tissues, and drugs can even break down in the bloodstream before reaching the tumor site. Anti-cancer drugs can last longer if dissolved in certain chemical solutions, but many come with potentially toxic side effects. […]

New tool allows researchers to predict key functional sites in proteins

A new technology that uses a protein’s structure to predict the inner wiring that controls the protein’s function and dynamics is now available for scientists to utilize. The tool, developed by researchers at Penn State, may be useful for protein engineering and drug design. Nikolay Dokholyan, professor of pharmacology at Penn State College of Medicine, and […]

Problems in synapse connection sites found in rare neurodevelopmental disorders

CASK-related neurodevelopmental disorders are caused by mutations affecting the CASK gene and result in a variety of symptoms ranging from brain abnormalities to severe intellectual disability or autism spectrum disorder. Currently, there are no specific treatments for CASK-related disorders. In the published study, the researchers used genetic, molecular, cellular, and functional methods to investigate neuronal mechanisms related to CASK-related neurodevelopmental […]

Binding sites for protein-making machinery

ETH Zurich researchers can predict how tightly a cell’s protein synthesis machinery will bind to RNA sequences – even when dealing with many billions of different RNA sequences. This binding plays a key role in determining how much of a specific protein is produced. The scientists are developing their prediction model using a combination of […]
