Multiplexed optogenetic control, using PA- Vav2 and PI-Rac1 in the same cell

Multiplexed optogenetic control, using Photo-inhibitable Vav2 (PA-Vav2) and Photo-inhibitable Rac1 (PI-Rac1) in the same cell.

Upon irradiation, area and roundness changed as they did in response to PA-Vav2 alone, but edge dynamics were clearly reduced, unlike response to either PA-Vav2 alone or PI-Rac1 alone. Blue dot denotes irradiation. Cells were visualized using mVenus-PI-Rac1.

    New gene expression mechanism with possible role in human disease

    When cells grow and divide to ensure a biological function - such as a properly working organ - DNA must be unwound from its typical tightly packed form and copied into RNA to create proteins. When this process goes awry - if too little or too much RNA is produced - then the result could be ... more

    The science of fluoride flipping

    So much of what happens inside cells to preserve health or cause disease is so small or time-sensitive that researchers are just now getting glimpses of the complexities unfolding in us every minute of the day. UNC School of Medicine researchers have discovered one such complexity -- a prev ... more

    How a cancer gene protects genome organization

    UNC School of Medicine researchers have cracked a long-standing mystery about an important enzyme found in virtually all organisms other than bacteria. The basic science finding may have implications for understanding cancer development and how to halt it. Researchers have known that the en ... more
