Local brain “clock” revealed for the first time


It is well known that all animals have an internal circadian clock that responds to daily environmental changes of light and darkness, to inform the body to rest and sleep, or wake and be active. As well as a master clock, found in the part of the brain called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), other areas…

Golgin proteins specify destination of vesicle traffic


Inside our cells are many small transport vesicles that act as carriers to move proteins and lipids around the cell. To maintain cell function, these vesicles have to deliver their cargo to exactly the right destination. New research by Mie Wong from Sean Munro’s group in the LMB’s Cell Biology Division has shown that when…
