Researchers have been able to establish the structure of the sodium-potassium pump.
Researchers have captured the structural dynamics of the mitochondrion using fluorescent probes. This mapping could provide insights into the underlying causes of neurodegeneration associated with mitochondrial malfunction.
Using a two-photon microscope capable of peering deep within living tissue, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have found new evidence that alpha-synuclein protein build-up inside neurons causes them to not only become leaky, but also to misfire due to calcium fluxes.
Five recent research papers shed light on elusive G protein-coupled receptors. New techniques and insights used to solve the GPCR structures are discussed.
