Researchers shed light on new enzymatic reaction

Researchers have discovered that repurposed enzymes and light are key to producing chemical compounds in an environmentally friendly fashion. By blending bio- and photocatalysis and experimenting with reactionary ‘ingredients,’ the research team developed a visible-light-induced reaction using the enzyme family ene-reductase (ER). The substrates used in this study, alkenes, can be derived in principle from […]

Preventing pancreatic cancer metastasis by keeping cells 'sheltered in place'

Scientists have shown that pancreatic cancer metastasis — when tumor cells gain the deadly ability to migrate to new parts of the body — can be suppressed by inhibiting a protein called Slug that regulates cell movement. The study also revealed two druggable targets that interact with Slug and hold promise as treatments that may […]
