Articles in Molecular Biology, the branch of science devoted to studies of the structure, function, and reactions of biomolecules involved in the life processes. It is chiefly concerned with the understanding the interrelationship of DNA, RNA and protein synthesis and learning how these interactions are regulated.
Molecular Biology Articles
With the human genome in hand, scientists are trying to fill the pages of an anthology of closely related volumes that explain how simple chemical modifications to DNA and its packaging proteins turn genes on and off in ways that impact human health.
The Stowers Institute's Rong Li Lab has published findings that shed light on the ability of cells to adapt to disruptions to their basic division machineries...
A groundbreaking study has revealed in great detail how enzymes in the cell cooperate to make fat. These enzymes are integrated into a single molecular complex known as fatty acid synthase.
For the first time, structural biologists have managed to obtain the detailed three-dimensional structure of one of the proteins that form the core of the complex molecular machine, called the replisome...
Proteins are essential for all biological activities and the health of the cell.

A team from the French Food Safety Agency, Lyon, France, has identified a prion protein characteristic that is unique to some natural but unusual sheep scrapie cases.
With the genomes of hundreds of organisms now catalogued, one of the next major challenges is to identify proteins and their interactions.
Using a highly sensitive new test, scientists in Europe are reporting “convincing evidence” that marijuana smoke damages the genetic material DNA in ways that could increase the risk of cancer.
