Researchers map proteins that comprise ‘steering wheel of the cell’
May 07, 2007
RICHLAND, Wash. –
Proteomics, a large-scale study of proteins and their functions in a living system, performed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and its affiliated Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory in Richland, Wash., has helped enable a team of PNNL and University California, San Diego, researchers to map an extensive network of the signaling proteins that allow cells to steer themselves and move. The findings were published today in the current advance online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
