Princeton Journal Watch:
New research findings from Princeton University

By the Department of Molecular Biology Whether growing in a puddle of dirty water or inside the human body, large groups of bacteria must coordinate their behavior to perform essential tasks that they would not be able to carry out individually. Bacteria achieve this coordination through a process called quorum sensing in which the microorganisms … Continue reading Researchers find an alternative mode of bacterial quorum sensing

By the Department of Molecular Biology Princeton University researchers have uncovered a critical role for a new immune signaling pathway in controlling infection by the flavivirus Yellow Fever Virus (YFV).  The paper describing this discovery was published today in the journal mBio. Infection with YFV causes a devastating illness with a mortality rate of up … Continue reading An immune signaling pathway for control of Yellow Fever Virus infection

By Pooja Makhijani for the Department of Chemistry Chromatin remodelers — protein machines that pack and unpack chromatin, the tightly wound DNA-protein complex in cell nuclei — are essential and powerful regulators for critical cellular processes, such as replication, recombination and gene transcription and repression. In a new study published Aug. 2 in the journal Nature, … Continue reading ‘Acidic patch’ regulates access to genetic information

By the Department of Molecular Biology Scientists from Princeton University‘s Department of Molecular Biology have successfully tested a cell-culture system that will allow researchers to perform laboratory-based studies of long-term hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections. The technique, which is described in a paper published July 25 in the journal Nature Communications, will aid the study … Continue reading Princeton researchers report new system to study chronic hepatitis B

By Catherine Zandonella, Office of the Dean for Research Cells push out tiny feelers to probe their physical surroundings, but how much can these tiny sensors really discover? A new study led by Princeton University researchers and colleagues finds that the typical cell’s environment is highly varied in the stiffness or flexibility of the surrounding … Continue reading Study reveals ways in which cells feel their surroundings

By Pooja Makhijani for the Office of Communications Could the storms that once engulfed the Great Plains in clouds of black dust in the 1930’s once again wreak havoc in the U.S.? A new statistical model developed by researchers at Princeton University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) … Continue reading New model projects an increase in dust storms in the US

By Staff, Department of Molecular Biology A new study has revealed insights into how new microtubules branch from the sides of existing ones. Researchers at Princeton University investigated proteins that control the formation of the thin, hollow tubes, which play an essential role in cellular structure and cell division. In a study published in the … Continue reading How TPX2 helps microtubules branch out

By Catherine Zandonella for the Office of the Dean for Research Getting something from nothing sounds like a good deal, so for years scientists have been trying to exploit the tiny amount of energy found in nearly empty space. It’s a source of energy so obscure it was once derided as a source of “perpetual … Continue reading Mysterious force harnessed in a silicon chip

By Catherine Zandonella, Office of the Dean for Research An international team of researchers have created a new structure that allows the tuning of topological properties in such a way as to turn on or off these unique behaviors. The structure could open up possibilities for new explorations into the properties of topological states of … Continue reading Artificial topological matter opens new research directions

By Staff, Department of Molecular Biology Researchers from Princeton University and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences have discovered how a fruit fly protein binds and regulates two different types of RNA target sequence. The study, published April 4 in the journal Cell Reports, may help explain how various RNA-binding proteins, many of which … Continue reading Study reveals the multitasking secrets of an RNA-binding protein
