zinc binding to the zinc transporter protein
The following news release from Johns Hopkins Medicine describes research on the structure and operating mechanism of a zinc-transporter protein embedded in cellular membranes—a mechanism essential for the survival of all living organisms. The research was performed by Dax Fu, an associate professor of physiology at Johns Hopkins who previously worked as a biochemist at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory. Much of the work was done at Brookhaven, including the crucial imaging studies conducted at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS), using a technique pioneered by NSLS scientist Mark Chance.

CORVALLIS, Ore. – The cause of potato late blight and the Great Irish Famine of the 1840s has been tracked to a pretty, alpine valley in central Mexico, which is ringed by mountains and now known to be the ancestral home of one of the most costly and deadly plant diseases in human history. Research published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, by researchers from Oregon State University, the USDA Agricultural Research Service and five other institutions, concludes that Phytophthora infestans originated in this valley and co-evolved with potatoes over hundreds or maybe a few thousand...

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Lyme disease is a stealthy, often misdiagnosed disease that was only recognized about 40 years ago, but new discoveries of ticks fossilized in amber show that the bacteria which cause it may have been lurking around for 15 million years – long before any humans walked on Earth. The findings were made by researchers from Oregon State University, who studied 15-20 million-year-old amber from the Dominican Republic that offer the oldest fossil evidence ever found of Borrelia, a type of spirochete-like bacteria that to this day causes Lyme disease. They were published in the journal Historical Biology....
