Light, chemistry, action: a new technique to target skin cancers?

Researchers could starve the tumour of oxygen and nutrients and cause it to disappear



Keeping stem cells poised for action

Researchers have identified a critical component that recruits other regulatory proteins to genes important in differentiation and also modulates their activity to keep them in a state of ongoing readiness.



Protein motor in action

The atomic-level action of a remarkable class of ring-shaped protein motors has been uncovered by researchers using a state-of-the-art protein crystallography beamline at the Advanced Light Source.



Genetics: Evolution in action

Scientists have zeroed in on the genes responsible for changing flower colour, an area of research that began with Gregor Mendel's studies of the garden pea in the 1850's.



Site for alcohol's action in the brain

Alcohol's inebriating effects are familiar to everyone. A new study by researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies brings us closer to understanding how alcohol alters the way brain cells work.



Genes in action

Researchers describe the development of gene probe eye drops that make it possible to monitor and detect tissue repair in the brain of living organisms using MRI.
