More than a protein factory

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Researchers from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have discovered a new function of ribosomes in human cells that may show the protein-making particle’s role in destroying healthy mRNAs, the messages that decode DNA into protein.

New Method of Scoring Protein Interactions Mines Large Data Sets From a Fresh Angle

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Researchers from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have created a novel way to define individual protein associations in a quick, efficient, and informative way. These findings, published in the March 8, 2019, issue of Nature Communications, show how the topological scoring (TopS) algorithm, created by Stowers researchers, can – by combining data sets – identify proteins that come together.

"Navigator" neurons play critical role in sense of smell

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have identified "navigator" neurons that are key to setting up connections in the system responsible for the sense of smell. The new study builds on a breakthrough 2014 report from the laboratory of Stowers Investigator Ron Yu, Ph.D., which showed a critical period in olfactory wiring using mice as a model system.

New study probes the ancient past of a body plan code

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Researchers from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have opened a window on another piece of evolutionary biology. They have found that Hox genes, which are key regulators of the way the bodies of bilaterally symmetrical animals form, also play a role in controlling the radially symmetric body plan of the starlet sea anemone, Nematostella vectensis.

New Model for Predicting Neuroblastoma Outcomes Incorporates Early Developmental Signals

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Motivated by a desire to better understand the molecular circuitry underlying neuroblastoma and limitations of current methods for predicting disease progression and outcome, researchers from the Kulesa Lab at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research and collaborators at the University of Michigan and Oxford University set out to construct a logic-based model incorporating information about developmental signaling pathways implicated in the disease.

How Epigenetic Regulation of the Hoxb Gene Cluster Maintains Normal Blood-forming Stem Cells and Inhibits Leukemia

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

New research from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research reveals that a DNA regulatory element within the Hoxb cluster globally mediates signals to the majority of Hoxb genes to control their expression in blood-forming stem cells.
