Deciphering Potent DNA Toxin’s Secrets

YTM-lesion-fea.jpg

One of the most potent toxins known acts by welding the two strands of the famous double helix together in a unique fashion which foils the standard repair mechanisms cells use to protect their DNA. A team of Vanderbilt University researchers have worked out the molecular details that explain how this bacterial toxin—yatakemycin (YTM)—kills cells by preventing DNA replication.

Magic Helps Unmask How the Brain Works

Scientists have used the “mirror box” illusion – an old magic trick – in a number of neuroscience studies. Researchers at the University of Delaware are using a new version of the illusion to study how the brain processes multiple sensory inputs to perceive our bodies and the world around us.

Building Bridges Within The Cell—Using Light

CellBridges.jpg

Each cell in the body is made up of a number of tiny sealed membranous subunits called organelles, and they send things like lipids back and forth to allow the cell to function. A process called membrane tethering is responsible for bridging the gap between organelles, and now, Texas A&M researchers have discovered a way to manipulate this tethering. The study was the cover story in the journal Chemical Science.
