Loss of Pericytes Deteriorates Retinal Environment

Loss of Pericytes Deteriorates Retinal Environment Discovering the role of pericytes in the blood-retinal barrier suggesting pathogenetic insights into diabetic retinopathyResearchers at the Center for Vascular Research, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) are studying the role of cells called pericytes, which protectively wrap the retinal vessels building up this blood-retinal barrier.DETAIL VIEW

A Culprit of Thyroid

A Culprit of Thyroid's DiseasesHow thyroid and its vascular system coordinate themselves and remodel during thyroid disease.
A team led by KOH Gou Young, director of the Center for Vascular Research, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), in collaboration with Chungnam National University, clarified the molecular mechanism to explain how the thyroid and surrounding vascular system change in the most common form of hyperthyroidism.

Model for Multivalley Polaritons

Model for Multivalley PolaritonsIBS scientists model the formation of multivalleys in semiconductor microcavities, bringing new ideas to the emerging valleytronics field.
Everything we experience is made of light and matter. And the interaction between the two can bring about fascinating effects. For example, it can result in the formation of special quasiparticles, called polaritons, which are a combination of light and matter.

Mapping DROSHA

Mapping DROSHA's Cleavage SitesIBS scientists develop a new method to understand what and where the DROSHA protein is cutting.
Each cell of our body is the result of an orchestra of sophisticated mechanisms that control which genes are and are not expressed at any given time. Partly, this is possible thanks to the coordination of several types of RNA molecules, like microRNAs (miRNAs).

New Protein Regulated by Cellular Starvation

New Protein Regulated by Cellular StarvationIBS biologists discover a new and unexpected function of a DNA repair protein.
Researchers at the Center of Genomic Integrity, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), have found out an unexpected role for a protein involved in the DNA repair mechanism. This protein called SHPRH not only helps fixing damages during DNA replication, but also contributes to the generation of new ribosomes, the cell's "protein factories".

DNA Misspelling Correction Method is Very Accurate

DNA Misspelling Correction Method is Very AccurateIBS scientists prove that a gene editing technique used for substituting a single nucleotide in the genome is highly accurate.
Researchers at the Center for Genomic Engineering, within the Institute of Basic Science (IBS) proved the accuracy of a recently developed gene editing method. This works as DNA scissors designed to identify and substitute just one nucleotide among the 3 billion nucleotides of our genome.
