This month we turn the spotlight to retinol binding protein 2 (gene: RBP2), which plays an important role in the uptake of vitamin A in the intestines. Now that winter has arrived, we increasingly need good night vision and a strong immune system - two physiological processes that we have vitamin A to thank for...Read more


Unlocking Immune Diversity: The RAG Recombinase

RAG1_Nov29_v2.jpg

The defense mechanism of our adaptive immune system relies on the antigen-recognition abilities of two molecules: T cell receptors (TCRs), attached to the surface of T cells, and immunoglobins (Igs), anchored to and secreted by B cells. These molecules are equipped with pockets that bind with remarkable selectivity to a specific antigen. Our bodies maintain an estimated 1014 specificities for Igs and a whopping 1018 for TCRs. Considering our entire genome harbors approximately 105 genes, how is this diversity achieved?..Read more
