A new study provides fresh evidence that the decline in the capacity of brain cells to change, called "plasticity," rather than a decline in total cell number may underlie some of the sensory and cognitive declines associated ...
The Lamond laboratory have developed an efficient and highly reproducible new methodology for isolating polysomes and other large subcellular structures, termed ‘Ribo Mega-SEC’, which they have used to study protein translation ...
