Single-molecule resolution technique allows researchers to quantify secondary transport
St. Jude researchers from Columbia University and New York State Psychiatric Institute present new evidence about the mechanics of how secondary active transporter proteins function. This report is published in Nature on November 13.  Discuss
New research suggests circular RNAs are important for cardiac healing
Researchers from the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University describe how circular RNA fills a critical role during tissue repair after heart attacks, due to a unique ability to absorb harmful molecules. The study was published September 20 in Nature Communications.  Discuss
Breakthrough electrochemical technique may bring cost savings to drug companies
Researchers have developed a simple new method for the creation of hindered ether compounds, which are often important components of many drugs and commercial products. Hindered ethers have been traditionally difficult to manufacture, but scientists at Scripps Research have published a new electrochemistry technique in Nature on September 9, which allows these compounds to be produced faster and more efficiently.  Discuss
Oncogene identified as a therapeutic target for liver cancer
The function of an enzyme that is highly expressed in many cancers has been revealed to regulate key pathways in cancer metabolic adaptation. Researchers at the Georgia Cancer Center and Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University published their findings in Hepatology.  Discuss
Large-scale analysis of microbiome reveals new classes of small proteins with implications in drug discovery
Trillion of bacteria reside within our bodies, and scientists are just scratching the surface of understanding the microbiome. Researchers at Stanford School of Medicine have shed light on previously unidentified proteins that may have an important role in human health and advance drug development.  Discuss
