Amino acid transporter chaperons its fusogenic partner: an essential role in placenta, and its implications for physiological and pathological cell fusion

Placenta is an essential organ for the fetal development of eutherian mammals. For the functions of placenta such as nutrient supply, gas exchange, metabolic waste elimination, and immunological protection, the maternal- and fetal blood circulations in the

Simulation by Stanford researchers shows how transporter proteins do their work in cells

Cells must continually pass molecules in and out to sustain life. Computer scientists and molecular physiologists have developed a computer algorithm to capture how these crucial proteins work. Inside every plant or animal, proteins called transporters act
