Attacking Cancer from Multi-dimensional Fronts

Applying a Traditional Asian Medicine approach of utilizing plant extracts in a mixture resulted in cancer cell death while normal cells thrived. Utilizing a large dataset of proteins identified as differentially expressed between treated and untreated cancer cells and comparing it to treated and untreated normal cells, we observed specific differences in mitochondrial function. One of the main objectives of this group is to explore potential differences in mitochondrial function in cancer cells that might lend itself to attack by the extract components and present these using different 3-d media approaches.

3D modeling: Using the Protein Data Bank

The RCSB Protein Data Bank provides access to 3D structures of biological macromolecules (proteins, DNA, RNA and their various complexes), along with tools and resources for their visualization, exploration, analysis, and comparison. The presentation on Monday (Jul 24, 2017) will focus on the double helical model of DNA - how was this determined? what does it tell us about the functions of DNA and molecules that interact with it? how has it helped us design new  molecules?

An accompanying exercise guides you through hands-on exploration of data from the RCSB PDBusing the UCSF Chimera software. Explore the PDB-101 website for a variety of educational materials related to protein structures. Also check out the curricular modules available for use.
