Abstract

Cholesterol import into the mitochondria of steroid producing cells is the rate-determining step in steroidogenesis. Numerous studies have provided evidence that the cholesterol-binding translocator protein (18 kDa TSPO) plays an important role in cholesterol translocation into mitochon...read more

CRISPR (general)

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are DNA sequences in the genome that are recognized and cleaved by CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas). CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Discover the latest research on CRISPR here.
