Article

Commented on Ten Simple Rules for Writing a PLOS Ten Simple Rules Article
This is good as PloS one is quite difficult to get published even though the IF isn’t that high nowadays.

Article

Commented on Dynein at the nuclear envelope
Dynein’s activities at the nuclear envelope are integral to both the structural organization of the cell and its division, underlining its importance in cellular biology.

Article

Commented on How Dynein Moves Along Microtubules
The most popular mechanism include Dynein uses the energy from ATP (adenosine triphosphate) hydrolysis to move. The ATP binds to the motor domain, causing conformational changes necessary for movement.

Article

Commented on Dynein at the kinetochore
Great review. Dynein at the kinetochore plays a critical role during cell division, particularly in mitosis.

Article

Commented on Axonemal Dynein Arms
Axonemal dynein arms are specialized structures found in cilia and flagella, essential for their motility.

Article

Commented on Interactions of Yeast Dynein with Dynein Light Chain and Dynactin
Indeed these interactions facilitate efficient transport within cells, impacting various cellular processes. For instance, defects in dynein-dynactin interactions can lead to diseases like neurological diseases .

Funding

Commented on OREF/Current Concepts in Joint Replacement Clinical Practice Awards (CCJR Award)
Right Neil, OREF offer a variety of grant types of funding from fellowship, travel awards to research grants. Seems prestigious!!!

Article

Commented on Prognostic refinement of NSMP high-risk endometrial cancers using oestrogen receptor immunohistochemistry
They found that the prognostic impact of the molecular classification, age, stage, and adjuvant CTRT in a large cohort of high-risk EC. ER-positivity is a strong favourable prognostic factor in NSMP HR-EC and identifies a homogeneous subgroup of NSMP tumours. Assessment of ER status in high-risk NSMP EC is feasible in clinical practice and could improve risk stratification and treatment.

Article

Commented on Is it still worth pursuing the repurposing of metformin as a cancer therapeutic?
Great article! This perspective article summarises how interest initially developed in the oncological potential of metformin and the diverse clinical programme of work to date including our contribution to establishing the intra-tumoral pharmacodynamic effects of metformin in the clinic.
