Proteins Responsible for What Is Seen
"A collaboration between researchers from the Institute for Medical Physics and Biophysics (IMPB) at the Charité in Berlin and the European Synchrotron (ESRF) in Grenoble has uncovered a new common feature in the molecular processes that are responsible for senses such as taste, smell, and vision," writes Medical News Today. "The team discovered that what seem like structurally and functionally different proteins important in sight and smell in fact share a common component. This result, published in the journal Nature Communications, provides another clue in the search to understand how our senses work." Read more.
