Biochemists use enzymes to change how brain cells communicate with each other

A new study demonstrates the possibility of changing the identity of synapses between neurons through enzymatic means, with larger implications for studying diseases of the brain.

Jennifer DeLuca named American Society for Cell Biology Fellow

DeLuca was named as an ASCB fellow in part due to her research on the biomolecular underpinnings of human diseases, like cancer.

Key early steps in gene expression captured in real time by CSU researchers

For the first time, CSU researchers have observed early RNA transcription dynamics by recording where, when and how RNA polymerase enzymes kick off transcription by binding to a DNA sequence.

CSU researchers discover key protein associated with dementia, other diseases

Understanding the role of a tiny protein in the brain could be the key to understanding the development of dementia associated with neuro-degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.
