Enzyme advance cellulosic biofuel production

Accellerase TRIO helps reduce ethanol production costs, lowers dosage and offers environmental benefits

Key enzyme repairs sun-damaged DNA

Researchers have long known that humans lack a key enzyme - one possessed by most of the animal kingdom and even plants - that reverses severe sun damage.

Enzyme Trio for Biosynthesis of Hydrocarbon Fuels

If concerns for global climate change and ever-increasing costs weren't enough, the disastrous Gulf oil spill makes an even more compelling case for the development of transportation fuels that are renewable, can be produced in a sustainable fashion, and do not put the environment at risk.

Key Enzyme in Melanoma Cell Development

Researchers have discovered a mechanism by which an enzyme regulates gene expression and growth in melanoma cells, a finding that could someday lead to more effective drugs to attack cancers and make them more treatable.

Detecting cancer related enzyme

A team of researchers has developed an assay that reliably detects and quantifies mature cathepsin K using a technique called gelatin zymography.

Key enzyme unlocked using 'cool' method

A team of scientists - using a new cooling method they created - has uncovered the inner workings of a key iron-containing enzyme, a discovery that could help researchers develop new medicines or understand how enzymes repair DNA.

Enzyme deficiency protects hepatitis C patients

Scientists have discovered two genetic alterations linked to a benign enzyme condition that keep some patients hepatitis C develop hemolytic anaemia-free.

Enzyme triggers switch in glucose processing

A study investigating how a cellular enzyme affects blood glucose levels in mice provides clues to pathways that may be involved in processes including the regulation of longevity and the proliferation of tumour cells.

Discovery of enzyme activation process

Researchers have determined how a 'chemical chaperone' does its job in the body, which could lead to a new class of drugs to help reduce the muscle damage caused by heart attacks.

Molecule repairs alcohol metabolism enzyme

An experimental compound repaired a defective alcohol metabolism enzyme that affects an estimated 1 billion people worldwide, according to research.

Genetics: Enzyme causes diseases

Researchers have conducted a joint research project to gain in-depth knowledge of the structure of pyruvate carboxylase when it is in solution.

Highly specific methyltransferase enzyme assay kits

New Direct Activity Assay kits for methyltransferases - PRMT1, 3, 5 and Set 7/9 have been developed to enable the measurement of enzyme activity using purified enzymes or enzyme containing extracts.

Easy-to-use, diagnostic tests for enteric infectious disease, caused by bacteria, viruses and parasites, require minimal hands-on time, are suitable for automated protocol and provide results in less than 2 hours.

Biotechnology pinpoints enzyme against Parkinson's disease

An enzyme that naturally occurs in the brain helps destroy the mutated protein that is the most common cause of inherited Parkinson's disease.

DNA enzyme synthesises and erases in a genetics discovery

Scientists describe a new mechanism behind an important process that causes a rapid reduction of DNA in the chromosomes of bacteria.

Enzyme linked with several types of cancer

Scientists have discovered a key mechanism used by cells to efficiently distribute chromosomes to new cells during cell multiplication.

Enzyme repair strategies

Scientists recently studied an enzyme, called Rad3, which defines a group of DNA helicases characterised by a unique structural domain containing iron.
