Phosphorylation of proteins on tyrosine is particularly important in the control of cell proliferation and differentiation, and drives many of the changes seen in cancer cells. Protein tyrosine phosphorylation has previously been thought to occur only inside cells, where it can control changes in cell structure, movement, and gene expression. In a recent article in Cell, the ...Read more >>
Hummingbirds are avid nectar drinkers, and their ability to perceive sugars enabled their extensive radiation in a new ecological niche. In a recent article in Science, Maude Baldwin, a visiting scientist in the Liberles Lab, uncovered a noncanonical mechanism for sweet taste detection that evolved in hummingbirds since divergence from swifts, ...Read more >>
Microtubules are fundamental for the spatial organization and motility of neurons and other cells. In a recent article in Cell, the Flanagan Lab identified a novel function for the microtubule plus-end protein Adenomatous polyposis coli (APC), a scaffold protein known to be important in biology and disease. They found that APC is an RNA- ...Read more >>
