Last year we found that a protein known as SREBP1 that regulates the formation of lipids necessary for new cell wall space was regulated during the cell cycle. Now we display that the SREBP1 proteins controls the cell routine actually. Senior author, LICR’s Dr. Johan Ericsson, realized that disrupting the function of SREBP1 might avoid the lipid synthesis required for new cell walls. In fact, we actually stopped the cell routine in its tracks by removing SREBP1 from cells. It seems that if you don’t possess SREBP1 activity, you can’t make lipids, and if you don’t have lipids, you can’t make brand-new cells.What are your further study plans? In other words, we’ve puzzle pieces that appear to be they could fit jointly. Here, we have a protein involved in mitotic function. Here we likewise have a complete large amount of mutations in the genome. We’ve even ten times more alterations in the mRNA in this gene. All these puzzle pieces appear to be they should match a picture together. No, what we do is find the missing puzzle piece that we hope ties in this puzzle. Sometimes you find a missing puzzle piece and it would go to a different puzzle. It happens to me in my house constantly! Where can readers find more information?
