Biophysicists Consider Tumor Suppressor Protein 53 To Be A Dimmer Switch

Protein 53 (or tumor protein 53), is a tumor suppressor protein that in humans is encoded by the TP53 gene.  Since 2003, biophysicists have referenced this protein 53 (p53) to be a rheostat, or dimmer switch in laymen terms.  Although … Continue reading

Mollusks Demonstrate Hi-Tech Eye Design

Human eyes are well-designed to see objects using light transmitted through air, but not through water, because light travels at a different speed through the two media. However, intertidal-dwelling marine mollusks called chitons can see equally well in both environments. … Continue reading
