X marks the spot: new proteomic technique pinpoints protein locations

A new mass spectrometry based technique can be used to map the location of thousands of proteins in the cell simultaneously, shedding light on different proteomic cell states in health and disease. Isabel Hofman The omics era has made analysis of total genomes or transcriptomes to answer diverse scientific questions routine. However, while the proteome… Read More X marks the spot: new proteomic technique pinpoints protein locations

Radioactive brain cells reveal potential path to recovery in multiple sclerosis

Tracking changes in trace amounts of a radioactive isotope of carbon in brain cells can retrospectively reveal the rate of cell division in the human brain. This technique has now been employed in brain tissue of multiple sclerosis patients and uncovered a surprising potential to regenerate lost tissue. Isabel Hofman Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is… Read More Radioactive brain cells reveal potential path to recovery in multiple sclerosis
