Teaching enzyme to build new molecules

Enzymes are nature's catalysts, the keys to influencing basic biochemical reactions to take place rapidly enough to maintain life. Even if searching for more...
Using a state-of-the-art type of electron microscopy, an MIT-led team has discovered the structure of an enzyme that is crucial for maintaining an adequate supply of DNA building blocks in human cells

Researchers delivered high-resolution glimpse of enzyme structure

MIT scientists have investigated the enzyme's structure by using a technique called electron microscopy. This new discovery also unveiled the likely mechanism for how cells regulate...
