In a new study, researchers from the lab of Rong Li, PhD, report that, in yeast, an enzyme literally flips a switch by moving molecules called phospholipids from the outer to the inner layer of the cell membrane.
New research from the Stowers Institute demonstrates that stress itself can increase the pace of evolution by increasing the rate of chromosomal instability or aneuploidy.
Stowers researchers in the Si Lab discovered that a prion-like protein plays a key role in storing long-term memories.
Researchers from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research and collaborators have discovered that planarians lack centrosomes, cellular structures that organize the network of microtubules that pulls chromosomes apart during cell division.
Transcriptional elongation control takes on new dimensions as Stowers researchers find gene class-specific elongation factors.
Stowers investigator Ali Shilatifard, PhD, and his team confirmed that the molecular mechanics of a key regulatory complex implicated in human leukemia are the same on each rung of the evolutionary ladder, from yeast to fruit flies to humans.
The Stowers Institute for Medical Research has received CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ accreditation, recognizing the institute’s commitment to the health of their employees and their families.
Researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research may have found an explanation for the observed asymmetrical distribution of damaged proteins between mothers and their youthful daughters.
Researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research used the single-celled organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae to gain new insight into the process by which chromosomes are physically segregated during cell division.
New research from the Hawley Lab clarifies the role of key chromosomal regions called centromeres in the formation of a structure known as the synaptonemal complex.
