Supercomputers Reveal How Cell Membranes Keep Cancer-Causing Proteins Turned Off

 

Two biophysicists from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have used supercomputers to show how cell membranes control the shape, and consequently the function, of a major cancer-causing protein.

The protein, a small enzyme called K-Ras, is attached to cell membranes where it senses signals that originate outside the cell. Read more . . .
