(Johns Hopkins University, 2017-07-07)
Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is a congenital heart defect, affecting 1-2% of the general population. Approximately 30% of individuals with BAV develop ascending aortic aneurysm (AscAA). Although the etiology of BAV/AscAA ...
Towards Structural Studies of Transcriptionally-coupled CRISPR Systems
(Johns Hopkins University, 2017-04-21)
Bacteria and archaea employ an adaptive immune system in the form of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) to fend off mobile genetic elements. CRISPR arrays store immunological memory in the ...
