Upcycling chitin-containing waste into organonitrogen chemicals via an integrated process [Applied Biological Sciences] https://www.pnas.org/content/early/2020/03/23/1919862117 Chitin is the most abundant renewable nitrogenous material on earth and is accessible to humans in the form of crustacean shell waste. Such waste has been severely underutilized, resulting in both resource wastage and disposal issues. Upcycling chitin-containing waste into value-added products is an attractive solution. However, the direct conversion…
Deregulation of ribosomal protein expression and translation promotes breast cancer metastasis https://science.sciencemag.org/content/367/6485/1468.full Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are shed into the bloodstream from primary tumors, but only a small subset of these cells generates metastases. We conducted an in vivo genome-wide CRISPR activation screen in CTCs from breast cancer patients to identify genes that promote distant metastasis in mice. Genes coding for ribosomal proteins and regulators of translation were enriched in this screen. Over
