Researchers in the Strahl lab identify another piece of the "histone code" puzzle

Researchers in the Strahl lab identify another piece of the "histone code" puzzle

New research from the lab of Dr. Brian Strahl, associate professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, has shown how a protein called UHRF1 “reads” the histone code in a specific way to perform an important cellular function.

UNC researchers engineer 'protein switch' to dissect role of cancer’s key players

UNC researchers engineer 'protein switch' to dissect role of cancer’s key players

In the first application of this approach, the UNC researchers showed how a protein called Src kinase influences the way cells extend and move, a previously unknown role that is consistent with the protein’s ties to tumor progression and metastasis.

New mechanism for cancer progression discovered by UNC and Harvard researchers

New mechanism for cancer progression discovered by UNC and Harvard researchers

The protein Ras plays an important role in cellular growth control. Researchers have focused on the protein because mutations in its gene are found in more than 30 percent of all cancers, making it the most prevalent human oncogene.
