Specially Developed Proteins Could Help Resist Ageing

... – oxidation is considered a major cause of ageing. In small-scale studies, Mikhail Shchepinov, a former Oxford University scientist, has found nematode worms – used extensively in ageing research - live 10% longer when they are fed nutrients enriched with a heavy isotope of hydrogen, deuterium. ...

Nobel Prize for Gene ‘Silencing

... until Mello and Fire unraveled the mystery of RNA interference, now widely known as RNAi. Fire and Mello carried out their study on a nematode worm called, Caenorhabditis elegans . Injecting these worms with ‘sense’ mRNA or RNA strand that had complementary base pairs to the transcribing ...

Innovative yeast genome may handle Cancer Clues

... of organisms, including humans, whose cells contain a nucleus to be decoded. Humans have an estimated 30,000-40,000 genes while brewer's yeast, the nematode worm, fruit fly and mustard weed, which have all been mapped, have between 6,000 and 26,000 genes. Professor Gordon McVie, a co-director with ...

Cancer gene mystery to be cracked!

... a process called RNA interference to switch off certain genes and leave others unaffected. This process was first identified as taking place in the nematode worm. It was discovered that the worm used tiny pieces of double-stranded RNA to switch off rogue genes that would otherwise harm it. Subsequently, ...
