Check out this new paper by Norm Zhu, Matt Mealka, Shane Mitchel, et al. that shows how the NF-κB p50 subunit homodimer preferentially binds 11-base pair κB DNA targets over 12-base pair DNA targets, even though it necessarily induces complex asymmetry.
Congratulations to Aden Alemayhu and Marissa Balagtas on accepting admission to doctoral programs at Yale University and UCLA, respectively!.
Congratulations to Jorge Rodriguez on being awarded a 2023-24 SDSU Master's Research Scholarship Award.
Check out this new paper by Ryne Holmberg, et al. reporting his work with scientists in the House Lab that shows how through the NF-κB RelB subunit, a cytokine named TWEAK promotes problematic behavior in ovarian cancer cells!
Congratulations to Sally Luong on being awarded the third annual Alison Huxford Memorial Fellowship for Graduate Student Research in Biochemistry and big thanks to all the family, friends, and former students who donated to make this fellowship possible!
