MedComm | Construction of a risk map to understand the vulnerability of various types of cancer patients to COVID-19 infection

COVID-19 is leading to a global pandemic and invades human cells via ACE2. So ACE2 is considered to be the receptor in host cells for binding to this novel virus. Therefore, the target cells with the ....



MedComm | Advances in pathogenesis and precision medicine for nasopharyngeal carcinoma

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a squamous carcinoma involving genetic predisposition, infection with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and environmental factors, with apparent geographical and racial distr....



Molecular Biomedicine | GEF-independent Ran activation shifts a fraction of the protein to the cytoplasm and promotes cell proliferation

Ran (Ras-related nuclear) protein is a member of the Ras superfamily of small GTPases. Like other GTPases, Ran switches between GDP-bound (inactive) and GTP-bound (active) states. Multiple missense mu....
