(2015-07-15)Natural products continue to be an important source of therapeutically-relevant compounds. With the advent of inexpensive genome sequencing it has become apparent that bacteria produce a larger array of natural products ...
(2015-07-14)While the basic outline of the enzymes and reactions that make up the traditional blood coagulation cascade has been understood for many years, appreciation of the complexity of these interactions has greatly increased in ...
Functional discovery in the oxidative D-galacturonate assimilation pathway and development of the enzyme similarity web tool (2015-07-15)Sequencing technology has improved dramatically over the past few decades. Before the sequencing of complete genomes was possible, the sequencing of a gene was directly linked to the biochemical characterization of its ...
(2015-07-09)Human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research provides promising prospects for the future of regenerative medicine. To fully realize its potentials, we not only need to further our understandings toward the molecular mechanisms ...
(2015-07-14)Mammalian cells use a variety of molecules to receive, process, and transmit information from the extracellular environment. Proteins receive and transmit signals through direct protein-protein interaction at the membrane ...
