Deciphering Protein Structure-Dynamics-Function Relationships in the Post AlphaFold Era

AI techniques have come of age – Google DeepMind’s AlphaFold, and other competitive approaches such as RosettaFold, and the more recent efforts at folding RNA structures using Atomic Rotationally Equivariant Scorer (ARES), have enabled accurate predictions of protein and RNA three-dimensional (3D) structures starting with just their primary sequences….

Cost and clinical benefit of imaging surveillance after treatment for breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

Recent UK guidelines recommend that surveillance imaging should not be offered to patients who have undergone treatment for breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) unless clinically indicated. The aim of this study was to explore the evolving practice at a tertiary referral unit and quantify the direct economic costs…

miRNAs and mRNAs in intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury

Introduction Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (II/R) injury is a severe clinical complication common in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). It is associated with high morbidity and mortality.1 Usually, this problem is followed by various causes, including sepsis, shock, trauma, and so on.2 Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury destroys intestinal tissue and impairs the function…

Selection of DNA Aptamers Recognizing EpCAM-Positive Prostate Cancer b

Introduction Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most common genitourinary system malignant tumor in men worldwide. In Asian countries, many patients with PCa are often diagnosed at an advanced stage maybe mostly because of a large population base with relatively backward economic development and imperfect cancer screening system of…

Combining CRISPR/Cas9 and brain imaging: from genes to proteins to networks

Abstract Understanding how functional connections between brain regions are arranged and influenced by genes, in the healthy and diseased states, is a major goal in neuroscience. Functional connectivity alterations are linked to molecular changes in several neurodegenerative disorders and could serve as early markers of pathology. Yet, the underlying molecular…

Another breakthrough after AlphaFold!Challenge the problem of RNA structure prediction, new AI technology is coming

Determining the three-dimensional structure of biomolecules is one of the biggest challenges in modern biology. Traditionally, pharmaceutical companies and research institutions often spend millions of dollars to determine the structure of a molecule, but even with such a large investment, they often fail. AlphaFold on the cover of Nature magazine…

Rare barley mutation with potential

Seven-day-old barley roots of mutant egt2: It grows strictly downwards (hypergravitropic). Credit: Gwendolyn Kirschner The importance of the root system for agricultural yields is often underestimated. Whether roots can access water and nutrients effectively also determines the resilience of important crops to drought and climate change. Researchers from the Universities…

Nuclear protein in testis carcinoma

Introduction Nuclear protein in testis (NUT) carcinoma (NC) is defined by the rearrangement of the chromosomal region 15q14 harboring the NUTM1 gene. As a clinically aggressive neoplasm with poor differentiation, NC was previously believed to occur primarily in children and young adolescents. However, with an increasing number of reports, middle-aged…

Focal therapy for localised prostate cancer

By Kalli Spencer The main goal of focal therapy is the targeted focal destruction of cancer tissue with the preservation of surrounding healthy prostate tissue. There have been conflicting opinions on the definition, but it seems the consensus is “ablation of the dominant or index lesion”1. The principle of targeted…
