Ancient Enzymes Function like Nanopistons to Unwind RNA

The research found that DEAD-box proteins, which are ancient enzymes found in all forms of life, function as recycling “nanopistons.”

RNA Molecules, Delivery System Improve Vaccine Responses, Effectiveness

A novel delivery system that could lead to more efficient and more disease-specific vaccines against infectious diseases has been developed by biomedical engineers at The University of Texas at Austin.

Across Species, Genes Evolve to Minimize Protein Production Errors, Scientists from The University of Texas at Austin and Harvard Find

Genetic evolution is strongly shaped by genes' efforts to prevent or tolerate errors in the production of proteins, scientists at The University of Texas at Austin and Harvard University have found.

University of Texas at Austin and Purdue University Scientists Find Missing Evolutionary Link Using Tiny Fungus Crystal

The crystal structure of a molecule from a primitive fungus has served as a time machine to show researchers more about the evolution of life from the simple to the complex.
