Deciphering Ribosomes’ Actions in Living Cells
Researchers from the Laboratory of Bioinformatics Approaches in Combinatorial Chemistry and Biology IBCH RAS, in collaboration with Irish colleagues, recently published a review in WIRES RNA that compiles the computational approaches, software tools, and data resources that have been developed over the last ten years for ribosome profiling data processing and analysis. The review outlines all the necessary steps involved in the initial processing of the data and highlights potential sources of artifacts and explains how to avoid them. Researchers can use this comprehensive guide to choose the most suitable tool depending on their specific goals and a preferable computational platform. Learn more

- Why acupuncture increases pain threshold of the rodent?
Scientists from the Laboratory of neuroreceptors and neuroregulators helped colleagues from Chengdu University (China) to conduct a series of in vivo experiments on wild-type and knockout by pain sensing receptors TRPV1 and P2X7 animals. It was shown that a stimulation of ST36 acupuncture point leads to an analgesic effect in the model of inflammation from the introduction of a slightly acidic solution into the paw, similar to the effects of selective TRPV1 and ASIC3 ion channel inhibitors. In the model of inflammation from the administration of α, β-meATP (a P2X1,3 purinergic receptor agonist) the ST36 point stimulation also reduced pain sensitivity, but not so effective as the P2X3 antagonist A-317491 or different ASIC3 channel blockers. The results are published in the British Journal of Pharmacology.
