One species, many genomes

... Weigel. Detailed analyses showed that genes for basic cellular functions such as protein production or gene regulation rarely suffer knockout hits. Genes that are important for the interaction with other organisms, on the other hand, such as those responsible for defense against pathogens or infections,...

Research identifies protein that signals flowering in squash plants

In addition to its fundamental importance in basic plant biology, understanding and manipulating the photoperiodic control of flowering time is an important objective in crop breeding and development programs, because it can aid in optimizing crop yields and other traits for local environmental condi...

Simulations unravel outer membrane transport mechanism

...asingly sophisticated crystallographic studies and basic biological data, simulations help researchers study the interactions of multiple proteins in complex systems, such as the TonB-dependent transporter, Gumbart said. “As we get more computational power, we’re looking less at single proteins and more...

This is another example of how research on basic biological questions, such as the three-dimensional structures of proteins in the brain, can yield valuable medical insights.” Taylor and colleagues have been studying the structure and function of acetylcholinesterase – a structurally related pr...

Research finds that circadian rhythms dominate all life functions

Beyond offering a potent tool that can be applied to any protein, the method has an important advantage compared with other te...

UI anthropologist, colleagues discover remains of earliest giant panda

...of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, shows that the basic anatomy of the giant panda has remained largely unchanged for millions of years. Ciochon says that the skull --, about one-half the size of a modern-day giant panda skull, but anatomically very similar -- indicates that the giant panda has evolved...

Fat fish put obesity on the hook

Adult stem cells from human cord umbilical cord blood successfully engineered to make insulin

...Stressing that the reported discovery is extremely basic research, Urban cautioned: "It doesn’t prove that we’re going to be able to do this in people — it’s just the first step up the rung of the ladder." The lead author of the paper, UTMB professor of internal medicine/endocrinology Larry Denner, said...
