Point mutation of basic amino acids in the coiled-coil domain of the adaptor protein CIN85 indicate the importance of these residues for the interaction of CIN85 with c-Cbl and phosphatidic acid.
The protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis possesses the coding capacity to produce an active β-fructofuranosidase, and cloning experiments indicate that this gene is transcribed, indicating that its inability to grow on sucrose is not due to it being unable to degrade this form of carbohydrate.
Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin, a widely used alcohol biomarker with an important role in clinical and forensic medicine, is now confirmed as a diagnostic tool to estimate heavy ethanol consumption in the Han Chinese population.

News from the web
BMC Biochemistry is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of biochemical processes, including the structure, function and dynamics of metabolic pathways, supramolecular complexes, enzymes, proteins, nucleic acids and small molecular components of organelles, cells and tissues.
BMC Biochemistry is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.
BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
Call for papers in Chemical Biology
BMC Biochemistry now has a dedicated Chemical Biology section, headed by Dr Sabato D'Auria from the Institute of Protein Biochemistry, Naples. This section considers submissions covering the application of chemistry to the investigation of biological processes and systems including the biosynthesis and metabolism of natural compounds, drug design and complex molecular rearrangements occurring in living organisms. Please submit your manuscript to BMC Biochemistry, or direct pre-submission enquiries to email@example.com.
