This is no ordinary crossing guard. It also acts as a bouncer or cop when bad proteins try to clog up the channel.
Automatic Emergency Brake Found on Molecular Motor
May 22, 2019
In this article, guest writer Ross Anderson (PhD, biochemistry professor) discusses a new finding about how an ’emergency brake’ works in one of the most vital of all molecular machines, ATP synthase. First, he explains the molecular rotary motor and what it does. Review of “Extrinsic conditions influence the self-association and structure of IF1, the […]
Photosynthesis: Darwin’s Great Mystery Is Still a Mystery
May 2, 2019
Darwin’s Great Mystery, Photosynthesis, Is Still a Mystery by Jerry Bergman, PhD The origin of photosynthesis has always been a profound problem for evolution. A 2019 study by one of the leading researchers in this area, Tanai Cardona, from the Department of Life Sciences at Imperial College London, has confirmed the fact that after decades […]
