Like a bad seed that overtakes an entire garden, a single abnormal protein
may spoil other proteins
nearby and begin the progression of Alzheimer's disease, a new study suggests.
From this initial grouping, nine striatal proteins
and ten hippocampal proteins
were selected for identification using MALDI-ToF-MS.
Binding to dsRNA by these proteins
may result in initiation of hellcase activity, concomitant with a conformational change that leads to recruiting additional cellular factors, including the recently identified IPS-1/MAVS protein
"The Biolex team has successfully produced a wide range of human proteins
and monoclonal antibodies including Plasminogen, a protein
that contains multiple kringle domains similar to those in NK4," said Kunio Iwatani, CEO of Kringle Pharma.
embodies any number of what are called "amino acids." The body needs 21 of these acids to build tissue, though not all proteins
contain the entire series.
Research has shown that soy protein
naturally contains many nutrients important for health and lacks the saturated fat and cholesterol associated with some animal proteins
Edited by an expert in the field and with a distinguished international team of contributors, Proteins
in Food Processing reviews how proteins
may be used to enhance the nutritional, textural and other qualities of food products.
(such as interleukins, tumor necrosis factor, and interferons) that are secreted by immune cells.
AxCell Biosciences, a subsidiary of Cytogen Corporation (Nasdaq:CYTO), is using IBM DB2 database technology to help its scientists chart the communication pathways within cells that enable proteins
to interact and cause or prevent diseases.
Through continual adaptation, a dizzying number of our white blood cells learn to recognize a specific bacterium, virus, fungus, or even a normal cell that has become cancerous, by responding to unique proteins
on the cell surfaces.
Key words: macromolecular crystallography; neutron crystallography; protein
; structural biology databases; x-ray crystallography.
Latex contains a significant amount of water soluble proteins
. Latex products such as gloves, condoms and surgical blooms come into contact with humans, and contaminating proteins
pose health risks.
