Cold Spring Harbor Protocols features methods for analyzing protein interactions

12.09.2006
Techniques to help biomedical scientists track down the basis of human diseases

Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., Fri., Sept. 8, 2006 – Cold Spring Harbor Protocols, an online journal that publishes methods used in a wide range of biology laboratories, has added over 40 new peer-reviewed protocols to its archive today. The new collection highlights two techniques for characterizing protein interactions, which will aid many cell and molecular biologists--including those who seek to identify the molecular basis of human diseases. Both of these methods are freely accessible from the journal's website: www.cshprotocols.org.

Given the importance of characterizing the molecular networks and signaling pathways that form the biological basis of all living organisms, techniques aimed at probing protein interactions have come to the forefront in recent years. The new methods published today by CSH Protocols will be useful for researchers seeking to identify the molecular partners--such as other proteins or DNA--to which specific proteins bind.

The featured protocols describe how proteins of interest can be labeled with detectable markers and then used to probe thousands of different DNA and protein sequences. The protein-DNA and protein-protein interactions that are identified will eventually be useful for tracking down the causes of diseases, as well as for designing new drugs to aid in their prevention and treatment.

The latest issue of CSH Protocols also includes a variety of other standard and specialized techniques that will be useful to many researchers. These include methods for synchronizing cell growth, investigating embryonic development, and preparing specimens for immunostaining.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
