Structures of Vac8-containing Protein Complexes Reveal the Underlying Mechanism by which Vac8 Regulates Multiple Cellular Processes
The findings of this research have been published in the April 2023 issue of PNAS.
Abstract Vac8, a yeast vacuolar protein with armadillo repeats, mediates various cellular processes by changing its binding partners; however, the mechanism by which Vac8 differentially regulates these processes remains poorly understood. V... Read More

A new therapy called CINDELA (Cancer-Specific InDel Attacker) employs CRISPR-Cas9 to kill cancer cells without affecting normal tissues.
Diagnosis of cancers may be one of the worst news to patients and their families. Conventional treatment options such as radiation and chemotherapies often kill not only cancer cells but also normal cells, which results in painful side effe... Read More

Researchers have designed a model to explain how evolution can shape flexible, functional proteins.
An international team, affiliated with UNIST has designed a model that simulates protein evolution. Starting from stiff, unfunctional proteins, the computer model shows how evolving protein components can work together to give rise to dynam... Read More
