Biologists at UC San Diego have identified the molecular mechanisms triggered by starvation in fruit flies that enhance the nervous...
Researchers discovered that some cases of glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive form of primary brain cancer, are caused by the fusion of two adjacent genes. The study also found that drugs that target the protein produced by this genetic aberration can dramatically slow the growth of glioblastomas in mice.
In one of the first successful attempts at genetically engineering mosquitoes, HHMI researchers have altered the way the insects respond to odors, including the smell of humans and the insect repellant DEET.
Researchers map out the relationship between receptors and ligands.
Researchers have identified a receptor protein that regulates immune response intensity in response to allergens.
