Atomic Structure of The Serotonin Transporter Bound to SSRIs

In a new study, researchers in molecular lab showing a chemical diverse drug used to treat depression and anxiety disorders interact with the protein that transports serotonin in the brain. An invention could open the way for the development of additional forms of antidepressants collectively known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors(SSRIs). The study published in the journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology.

Stealth Virus for Cancer Therapy

Scientists have redesigned an adenovirus for use in cancer therapy. To achieve this they developed a new protein shield that hides the virus and protects it from being eliminated. Adapters on the surface of the virus enable the reconstructed virus to specifically infect tumor cells.
