Molecular Glue Degraders Could Target “Undruggable” Proteins

Cells contain molecular machinery that targets and disposes of unwanted proteins. Scientists would like to hijack this process to control proteins involved in cancer and other diseases, using a type of molecule called a molecular glue degrader.

Genomic "Tug of War" Could Influence How Cancer Patients Respond to Decitabine

A genomic tug of war for a gene activator could explain why some cancers respond to decitabine and others don't respond or become resistant over time.

Daily Scheduled Exercise Helps To Sync Body Clock

Physical activities in the morning, associated with daily patterns of sleep/wake cycle, convey timing information from the light-sensitive central clock in the brain to the weight-bearing skeletal tissues.

Tau Proteins Visualized While Neurons Are “Talking”

For the first time, University of Queensland (UQ) researchers have shown how the tau protein, known for its role in dementias, behaves where communication in the brain takes place.

Contents of Human Bone Marrow Mapped

A team of researchers has mapped the location and spatial features of blood-forming cells within human bone marrow, providing a powerful way to study diseases like sickle cell anaemia and leukemia.

Drug-Like Molecule Extends Lifespan and Ameliorates Pathology in Worms

Researchers at the Buck Institute have identified a new drug-like molecule that keeps mitochondria healthy via mitophagy, a process that removes and recycles damaged mitochondria in multicellular organisms.
