Abstract

Crustacean peptide pheromones, kairomones, and substituted amino sugar kairomones are reviewed from a historical perspective. These crustacean information molecules are secondary functions of structural polymers. They are partial hydrolysis products, generated usually by the action of t...read more

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Oxygenation & Hydroxylation

Oxygenation is a chemical production that introduces oxygen atom into an organic compound. Hydroxylation is a chemical process that introduces a hydroxyl group (-OH) into an organic compound. In biochemistry, hydroxylation reactions are often facilitated by enzymes called hydroxylases. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes are expressed mainly in the liver and are active in mono-oxygenation and hydroxylation of various xenobiotics, including drugs and alcohols, as well as that of endogenous compounds such as steroids, bile acids, prostaglandins, leukotrienes and biogenic amines. Here is the latest research.

Extracellular Matrix Turnover

The extracellular matrix (ECM) ensures tissue integrity and play a role in cell growth, migration, and differentiation. ECM turnover, therefore, is essential for tissue maintenance. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that regulate ECM turnover.

Ubiquitination Pathways &Therapeutics (Keystone)

The addition of ubiquitin to a protein substrate via a multistep process is referred to as ubiquitination, which can have a variety of different effects on the protein including flagging the protein for degradation, altering its location or activity, or altering protein-protein interactions. Dysreguation of this pathway has been implicated in multiple disease processes. Here is the latest research on ubiquitin pathways and targeted degradation.

Glycolipids

Glycolipids are amphitropic compounds with one or more monosaccharide residues glycosidically linked to a lipid. Discover the latest research on glycolipids here.

Ubiquitination Pathways &Therapeutics (Keystone)

This feed covers research relating to Peter Hsu's talk on H2B Ubiquitination-Dependent H3K4 Methylation. The addition of ubiquitin to a protein substrate via a multistep process is referred to as ubiquitination, which can have a variety of different effects on the protein including flagging the protein for degradation, altering its location or activity, or altering protein-protein interactions. Dysreguation of this pathway has been implicated in multiple disease processes. Here is the latest research on ubiquitin pathways and histone 2B.

Neuropeptides

There are >50 peptides released by neurons that function as neuromodulators, neurotransmitters, neurohormones, and hormones. Here is the latest research on the systemic function of neuropeptides in the body.
