Atomic Structure Of The Mammalian 'Fatty Acid Factory' Determined

Friday, September 5, 2008 - 08:21 in Biology & Nature

Mammalian fatty acid synthase is one of the most complex molecular synthetic machines in human cells. It is also a promising target for the development of anti-cancer and anti-obesity drugs and the treatment of metabolic disorders. Now researchers have determined the atomic structure of a mammalian fatty acid synthase.
