New studies by HHMI scientists show how cells use sophisticated signaling mechanisms to control production of interferon.
HHMI researchers have identified a neural circuit in the subfornical organ that regulates thirst in mice.
When battling a chronic infection, killer T cells must take a break so they can continue to fight off infection.
Janelia reseachers show that Hox proteins trigger gene activity through weak interactions at previously unrecognized DNA binding sites in the genome.
On February 18, Janelia group leader Luke Lavis will speak about “The Chemistry of Color” at 7:00 p.m. at Janelia Research Campus.
Scientists have determined new structures of an essential cellular recycling machine with near atomic-level detail. The structures, which show a protein called NSF alone and interacting with its target, a protein complex called SNARE that is formed when membranes fuse together.
HHMI scientists and their colleagues discover a new mechanism of protein synthesis.
Fernando Amat, Philipp Keller, and William Lemon win first prize in the 2014 Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition for their video that captures the early development of a fruit fly embryo.
