Andrew McKenzie’s group, in the LMB’s PNAC Division, has found a link between tumour-related expression of the IL25 gene, innate lymphoid cells and reduced survival amongst colorectal cancer patients
Insight on Research
A new study from Joe Yeeles’ group, in the LMB’s PNAC Division, demonstrates the first reconstitution of a functional human replisome that performs fast and efficient DNA replication.
Lori Passmore’s group in the LMB’s Structural Studies Division has shown that Mpe1 in yeast and RBBP6 in humans are critical for activating CPF and CPSF respectively, protein complexes vital to cleavage process of mRNA.
In solving the structure of the human inner kinetochore bound to a centromeric CENP-A nucleosome, David Barford’s group in the LMB’s Structural Studies Division has revealed how the complex recognises centromeric DNA and functions as a load-bearing element during chromosome segregation.
Structural analysis of GABAA receptors by Radu Aricescu’s group, in the LMB’s Neurobiology Division, has revealed possibility for an unexpected variety in subunit arrangement, with significant implications for future research and therapeutic developments.
Inter-divisional collaboration between the groups of Sjors Scheres, Michel Goedert and others identified TMEM106B as a new protein responsible for amyloid filament formation, and showed that these filaments develop in an age-dependent manner in human brains.
