  2. Scientists Determine Structure of Enzyme Linked with Key Cell-Signaling ProteinRead the original story

    Monday Jul 18 | Newswise

    Findings aid understanding of how modifications to cell-signaling protein affect its action in turning genes on and off; could also point to new targets for drugs to fight cancer Newswise - UPTON, NY-Scientists have captured atomic level snapshots showing how one key enzyme modifies a protein involved in turning genes on or off inside cells. Understanding this process-which is particularly important when cells are first taking on specialized identities such as nerve cells, muscle, skin, and so on-helps explain how complex organisms can arise from a finite number of genes.

That means the storm easily clears the previous local record of 26.9 inches, set in 2006. The NOAA says the inaccurate total was caused by a communication error between the weather forecast office in Upton, New York, and the Central Park Conservancy, which takes the park's official measurements.
