By destabilizing synthesis, Protein can be Intentionally terminated of its own synthesis

Biologists have destabilize the structure of the ribosome and end its own synthesis prematurely, and found that this phenomenon is used to adapt the cell to its environment. Proteins are functional molecules , which support life and are three-dimensional structures of polypeptide chains, chains of linked amino acids. The configuration of amino acids on this chain (the sequence) is written in the DNA sequence.

Fish Oil Component: Vision Cells Protected From Future Injury

New research published in the issue of the journal Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology revealed that fish oil component protects cells critical to the vision from potentially lethal initial insults as well as from those that occur in the future. The study results reported that the omega-3 fatty acid, DHA, and its derivatives, docosanoids, precondition photoreceptor and retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells to survive. 

New vaccination strategy against HIV-related SIV in monkeys

Infection researchers from the German Primate Center (DPZ) – Leibniz Institute for Primate Research have in cooperation with international colleagues tested a new vaccination strategy against the HIV-related simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) in rhesus monkeys. For this, the researchers used a vaccine that consisted of two components.

Unobtrusive clots: Video of blood clot contraction reveals platelets mechanism

The first view of the physical mechanism of how a blood clot contracts at the level of individual platelets is giving researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania a new look at a natural process that is part of blood clotting. A team led by John W. Weisel, a professor of Cell and Developmental Biology, describes in Nature Communications how specialized proteins in platelets cause clots to shrink in size.

Bacteria also acquires resistance from its rivals

Researchers from the Bio- zentrum of the University of Basel have demonstrated that some bacteria inject a toxic cocktail into their competitors causing cell death and lysis . Then, by integrating the released genetic material, which may also carry drug resistance genes, the predator cell can acquire antibiotic resistance. The study findings were published in the  Cell Reports
