50th anniversary of the discovery of reverse transcriptase.

Authors:
John M Coffin

Mol Biol Cell 2021 01;32(2):91-97

Department of Molecular Biology and Microbiology, Tufts University, Boston, MA 02111.

The simultaneous discovery in 1970 of reverse transcriptase in virions of retroviruses by Howard Temin and David Baltimore was perhaps the most dramatic scientific moment of the second half of the 20th century. Ten years previously, Temin's observation of cells transformed by Rous Sarcoma virus led him to the conclusion that retroviruses replicate through a DNA intermediate he called the provirus. This heretical hypothesis was greeted with derision by fellow scientists; Temin and Baltimore performed a simple experiment, rapidly reproduced, and convincing to all. Read More

The discovery of insulin revisited: lessons for the modern era.

J Clin Invest 2021 Jan;131(1)

2021 to 2022 marks the one hundredth anniversary of ground-breaking research in Toronto that changed the course of what was, then, a universally fatal disease: type 1 diabetes. Some would argue that insulin's discovery by Banting, Best, Macleod, and Collip was the greatest scientific advance of the 20th century, being one of the first instances in which modern medical science was able to provide lifesaving therapy. As with all scientific discoveries, the work in Toronto built upon important advances of many researchers over the preceding decades. Read More

ACE2 in the renin-angiotensin system.

Clin Sci (Lond) 2020 12;134(23):3063-3078

National Institute of Science and Technology in Nano-Biopharmaceutics (INCT-NanoBiofar) - Laboratory of Hypertension, Institute of Biological Sciences, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

In 2020 we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) discovery. This event was a landmark that shaped the way that we see the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) today. ACE2 is an important molecular hub that connects the RAS classical arm, formed mainly by the octapeptide angiotensin II (Ang II) and its receptor AT1, with the RAS alternative or protective arm, formed mainly by the heptapeptides Ang-(1-7) and alamandine, and their receptors, Mas and MrgD, respectively.
