Researchers determined the structure of a supercomplex of enzymes many bacteria use to generate energy.
Cronan Lab: Lipoyl transfer has a "moonlighting" function -- that is, development of a new function while retaining the original function
The study's findings were recently published in PNAS
The Kranz lab and colleagues have recently publish a trio of papers that describe the engineering of receptors that can mediate specific and potent destruction of cancers by T cells.
Researchers identify new physiological regulators of the one carbon cycle metabolism. The findings were published in Nature Communications.
Professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology, Jongsook Kim Kemper and the first and co-corresponding author, Young Kim, co-author Sangwon Byun, and colleagues demonstrated that Aromatic Hydrocarbon Receptor (AHR) and the orphan nuclear receptor, Small Heterodimer Partner (SHP), have an unexpected function in regulating one carbon (1C) metabolism in the f...
