  5. Quantitative, Kinetic Models of Cellular Circuits

    25 Feb 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Michael R. Brent

    Living cells contain complex, analog circuits that regulate the rate at which each gene produces its product. The kinetic properties of these circuits enable cells to respond to changes in their environments and thus to survive, reproduce, and compete. For decades, molecular biologists have been...

  12. Multi-walled Carbon Nanotubes and Mesothelioma: An ICON Backgrounder

    19 Feb 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Kristen Kulinowski

    Two studies published in the Journal of Toxicological Sciences and Nature Nanotechnology in 2008 have demonstrated that some multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT or MWNT) can induce in mice a response similar to that induced by certain asbestos fibers. At a first glance, certain MWCNT and...

  13. Basic Rules of Protein Folding

    31 Dec 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Seth Lichter

    How are proteins made? Inside cells, messenger RNA first instructs the ribosomes as to the order which amino acids should be joined together. Linked together and released from the ribosome, the protein is not functional. It now needs to fold into a precise three-dimensional shape. There are no...
