Tohoku University scientists have, for the first time, provided experimental evidence that cell stickiness helps them stay sorted within correct compartments during development.
While the SARS-CoV-2 virus uses host proteins to replicate, the scientists said until now, there has been no detailed understanding of all the proteins occurring in human cells which interact with the viral genetic material -- its RNA.
As the world moves into the next stage of COVID-19 management and several vaccine candidates approach end-stage trials, scientists say a critical consideration for India is storage temperature and a protein-based preventive might therefore work best for the country.
Research on mice which were sent to the International Space Station (ISS) have helped scientists identify a protein that appears to have a major role in the ageing process, suggests a joint study by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Tohoku University.
In a major study, researchers have discovered a technique that could help increase the effectiveness of vaccines against the novel coronavirus, the virus that causes Covid-19.
According to the study, published in the journal Advanced Materials, one answer might lie in designing vaccines that partially mimic the structure of the virus.
Swami Ramdev said that if you have to take protein then take it from natural things. For this, eat soybean, milk, curd and mixed porridge.
A UK-based biotech company on Monday declared positive "breakthrough" results from a clinical trial of a protein-based treatment for COVID-19, which "greatly" reduced patients requiring intensive care.
Scientists at the Walter Reed Army Institute for Research (WRAIR) have recently demonstrated that cathepsin B, a well-studied protein important to brain development and function, can be used as biomarker, or indicator of severity, for traumatic brain
Scientists have discovered a new drug which they claim could be useful to combat inflammation of all varieties, an advance that may help in fighting aggravated immune response in respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19.
Scientists have produced the first open source all-atom models of full-length spike protein of the novel coronavirus that facilitates its entry into the host cells, an advance that may aid faster COVID-19 vaccine and antiviral drug development.
An Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) zoologist, Dr Hifzur R. Siddique, has collaborated with Prof Keigo Machida of the University of Southern California, to discover the protein forming cancerous cells in the body, causing growth of tumour in the liver.
A structural protein has been zeroed on by scientists as a new target for the diagnosis and treatment of depression, suggests a recent study.
Eating more protein from plant sources or dairy while cutting down red meat consumption could help people live longer, new research claims,
A new study on mouse reveals that consuming high protein diet spurs unstable plaque, the kind which leads to blocked arteries.
In a first, researchers have shown that proteins in the legs of malaria carrying mosquitoes help them develop resistant to insecticides, an advance that may lead to new strategies against the disease which kills nearly 4,00,000 people each year.
Researchers have discovered a method to supercharge protein production up to a thousandfold, an advance that may drive down costs of protein-based drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics. Proteins are made of long chains of building block molecules called amino acids, and the process of producing them for medical or commercial applications can be complex, expensive, and time-consuming.Protein-based medicines such as insulin are synthesised by turning engineered bacteria into tiny protein-making factories, the scientists, including Indian-origin researcher Manasvi Verma from Washington University in the US, said.
The findings were published in the journal Nature Cell Biology.
