Non-coding RNAs help silence the mammalian transcription

... the deletion involves the chromosome 15 that came from the mother, the child has Angelman syndrome. In the mouse, a cluster of nine genes on the distal end of the number 7 chromosome is imprinted.

The arm also forms a proximal joint near where the arm meets the body, and a distal joint near the suckers that have grasped the food. The medial joint typically exhibits the most movement during food retrieval. The authors also ...

Rice bioengineers pioneer techniques for knee repair

... In a third, and perhaps most impressive breakthrough, Athanasiou and Hu used the self-assembly approach to grow the entire articular surface of the distal femur. Each of these unbroken samples were tailored three-dimensionally to fit a specific rabbit femur. "If you told me 10 years ago that we would ...

Biotechnology's newest chemical tool

... pulls a tendon inside a synovial sheath, CYBERHAND's finger cables run through a Teflon sheath pulled by a DC motor. So the proximal, medial and distal phalanges, those bones between your finger knuckles, are all driven by the same tendon. This approach is called underactuation as there are more ...
