Targeting Tuberculosis  In a recent issue of the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences, Einstein researchers describe a new strategy for killing Myobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), the bacterial species that causes TB.  Drs. Michael Berney, Linda Berney-Meyerand William Jacobs found that MTb’s ability to successfully infect hosts and survive in their tissues depends on synthesizing the... read more


New Aging TargetsBy digesting and recycling worn-out proteins and other molecules, chaperone-mediated autophagy (CMA) is crucial for maintaining cellular health. Impaired CMA is associated with aging and with neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. In a study published in the June 25, 2015 online issue of Molecular Cell, Dr. Ana Maria Cuervo and colleagues examined how CMA activity is... read more


Shedding New “Light”Fluorescent proteins (FPs) have long been vital tools for tracking proteins within live cells. When fused to a protein of interest, FPs can “report” the location and levels of that specific protein. But popular FPs can be unreliable, especially when fused to proteins made within a cell’s endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Properties of the FPs can be susceptible to  inactivating... read more
