Molecular drivers of Parkinson's disease have been revealed by scientists who also determined how they impact the functions of genes involved in the condition and the results may point to potential new treatments.
A microRNA inhibitor has been identified which reduced the sizes of aggressive CNS tumours and improved survival in mice.
A newly-discovered molecular mechanism that allows damaged adult liver cells to regenerate could pave the way for drugs for chronic liver diseases.
New antibiotics could be designed by discovering the mechanism a weapon bacteria uses to vanquish their competitors.
Molecules that are critical for T cells to travel to and populate the lungs have been identified which could strengthen vaccines against influenza.
A mechanism has been identified which regulates the release of insulin from β-cells and could be used to develop new treatments for type 2 diabetes.

Researchers discover that a non-coding region of the genome originates a key molecule for the proliferation of cancerous tumours.
For the past thirty years, native mass spectrometry has grown in both scope and reach in labs across the globe to encompass larger and more challenging molecular complexes. However, up until now, the throughput of these techniques has been slow and manual. Christopher Nortcliffe discusses ways that native analysis is…
