Scientists reveal activating tumour suppressor protein TiPARP results in the degradation of several transcription factors implicated in cancer survival.
Researchers have identified a structural loop in the SARS-CoV-2 S protein and a sequence of four amino acids that they say could help explain its high transmission rate.
Researchers have used the genome of Erysimum cheiranthoides (wormseed wallflower) to understand how plants biosynthesise cardenolides.
Researchers working on related coronaviruses SARS and MERS have identified the membrane fusion peptide on the Spike protein as a possible drug target for SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19.
An enzyme that adds a cell-signalling code to proteins has been identified by researchers, who say their discovery could aid in the development of cancer therapies.
