Slipping In An Acetyl For Enzyme Control
Acetylation of proteins helps biological cells control a number of processes, including glycolysis and DNA repair. But the inability to install an acetyl group on a specific lysine residue in the lab has stymied biochemical studies of this posttranslational modification. A team led by Leo C. James and Jason W. Chin of the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology, in Cambridge, England, has used a method previously created by Chin’s . . .
