Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance

...searchers can tell where a drug resistant parasite comes from depending on the varied mutations in the three different resistance genes, Roepe said. "There are patterns of mutations in these genes that can tell you if the parasite came from Africa, or Asia, or South America, and what drugs it is most likel...

Sun exposure early in life linked to specific skin cancer gene mutation

...cause of melanomas has been a mystery. A new clue comes from scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Schools of Medicine and Public Health. Their research indicates that early life sun exposure, from birth to 20 years old, may specifically increase the risk of melanomas with BRAF gen...

Study shows lizard moms dress their children for success

Mothers know best when it comes to dressing their children, at least among side-blotched lizards, a common species in the western United States. Researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz, have found that female side-blotched lizards are able to induce different color ...

Genetic factors are linked to fever following smallpox vaccination

Crowe writes, “The long-term goal is to determine genetic features that could be determined prior to vaccination, allowing practitioners to...

Penn researchers link cell's protein recycling systems

...le of HDAC6 “That’s where the power of fruit flies comes in,” Taylor explains. “We can use fruit flies to rapidly screen through many genes to find the one we’re interested in. In the process of screening, our attention was drawn to HDAC6 because we already knew that it could bind to ubiquitin-tagged prote...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...inactivate them. That's the kind of knowledge that comes from sequencing heterochromatin." Smith uses the metaphor of dark matter to suggest the significance of heterochromatin. "We don't know what holds the galaxies together, and the same is true of the genome. We're pretty good at understanding how i...

Mutating the entire genome

... or so-called “jumping gene” named piggyBac, which comes from a moth. They used piggyBac to insert pieces of loxP DNA randomly into numerous spots on the mouse genome. So scientists easily can breed multiple generations of mice with loxP surrounding various large stretches of DNA. Then the first part o...
