New pathway ID'd for diabetes; Duke team concentrates on protein assembly;

> An investigator for the University of Alberta in Canada says he has identified a new pathway for diabetes research, saying that a dimmer switch he's found could be used to modulate the amount of insulin a person produces. Release

> Scientists at Duke have deciphered the genetic code that instructs proteins to either self-assemble or disassemble in response to environmental stimuli, such as changes in temperature, salinity or acidity. They say the discovery offers a new platform for drug delivery systems and an entirely different view of cellular functions. Release
