Direct lipid transport between the endoplasmic reticulum and the plasma membrane helps to control insulin secretion.
Chlorine-capped TiO2 nanocrystal films processed below 150°C effectively passivate detrimental carrier trap states.
Photochemical electron transfer drives C–N bond formation that would otherwise be energetically unfavorable.
Submarine plants on coral reef flats are important for mitigating bacterial contamination from sewage pollution.
Physical contact with a host cell triggers derepression of virulence effectors and shifts metabolism in a pathogenic form of Escherichia coli.
Bacterial cytokinesis is controlled by the circumferential treadmilling of FtsZ and FtsA filaments that drives the insertion of new cell wall.
- GTPase activity–coupled treadmilling of the bacterial tubulin FtsZ organizes septal cell wall synthesis
The bacterial tubulin FtsZ uses guanosine triphosphate hydrolysis to power treadmilling, organizing processive synthesis of the septal cell wall.
Hair follicles convert wound myofibroblasts to adipocytes through the bone morphogenetic protein signaling pathway, revealing a target to decrease scarring.
Damaged DNA may artificially increase the number of rare variants identified in large-scale sequencing projects.
