Caterpillars tell us how bacteria cause disease

... have been interacting with simple animals such as amoeba and insects for a staggering length of evolutionary time. It seems likely that most virulence genes around today probably first evolved to work against these hosts". With funding from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council's (B...

Einstein researchers take the pulse of a gene in living cells

...s a gene important in the life cycle of the social amoeba Dictyostelium, thousands of which sometimes aggregate into a single slug-like mass. This developmental gene plays a major role in transforming the "slug" into a stalk-like structure called a fruiting body, which releases new amoebae. "The pulsing we...

Silence of the amoebae

...ng a copy of a specific part of that gene into the amoeba cell nucleus. Introducing the plasmid led to the modification of DNA "packing" proteins, causing the DNA-protein packages to become more tightly coiled ?something like a tangled telephone cord ?and causing an irreversible silencing of gene expression...

Single cell amoeba increases MRSA numbers 1000- fold

NHGRI targets 12 more organisms for genome sequencing

...aulti and Nasonia longicornis); a free-living soil amoeba (Acanthamoeba castellanii); and three fungi (Schizosaccharomyces octosporus, Schizosaccharomyces japonicus, Batrachochytridium dendrobatidis). It has been shown that most sequences of the human genome originated long before humans themselves. Conseq...

Microarrays as phenotype

...stelium (Dictyostelium discoideum), a form of soil amoeba used in the laboratory because many of its 10,000 genes are homologues or equivalents of genes found in humans. Using microarray data alone, they determined the orders in which genes function in a particular pathway in that organism. The protein kin...
