Function from structure: the double life of a DUB
Function from structure: the double life of a DUB
Deubiquitinases (DUBs) play a general role removing protein-degrading ubiquitins throughout the cell and are not typically known for specificity. Analyzing the two protein complexes BRISC and BRCA1-A, which have the same DUB core but play different roles in human biology, the Thomä group - in a collaboration with the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR) - showed that DUBs can have diversified targeting and regulatory functions.

Doctors’ attitudes toward lesbians and gays shaped early in medical school
Attitudes towards lesbians and gay men can be shaped early on in medical training, with early-career doctors expressing less bias towards sexual minorities two years after medical school the more contact and favorable interactions they had with members of the LGBT community during medical school. Conversely, the more negative views students were exposed to about sexual minorities during medical school the greater the bias they exhibited by the second year of their medical residency, researchers from Yale and Oregon Health & Science University report Aug.

150 years of DNA
150 years of DNA
DNA has become the icon of modern bioscience but few people realize that it was Friedrich Miescher, who - almost a century before Watson and Crick - laid the chemical groundwork for the molecular breakthroughs that followed. Today, 150 years after Miescher's first ‘discovery' of DNA, we want to highlight his remarkable work.
