Scientists identify a key protein for regulating immune response

■ Life Sciences / Scientists identify a key protein for regulating immune response Research reveals a brain development protein plays a critical role in the body’s immune response. Researchers collaborating across multiple institutions in South Korea have shown that a DNA-binding protein, previously known for its role in early brain development that helps sustain an effective immune response. A team led by Prof. Boyoun Park found that the cellular nucleic acid-binding protein (CNBP) bound to many genes that influence our immunity, including those associated with a sustained immune response. The study, titled “CNBP acts as a key transcriptional regulator of sustained expression of interleukin-6,” has … Continue reading Scientists identify a key protein for regulating immune responseRead More →
