Weill Cornell Research Reveals Secrets Of Trafficking Within Cells

...ogies -- RNA interference (RNAi), where scientists cut down on protein expression by jamming the responsible gene with bits of RNA; and microscopy, which looks at the activity of individual living cells by attaching a fluorescent tag to a specific cell component -- in this case clathrin.

First-ever Compounds To Target Only Metastatic Cells Are Highly Effective Against Breast, Prostate, And Colon Cancers

... "Starting with the basic migrastatin molecule, we cut a piece there, add a piece here," he explained, "and what we ended up with were two compounds -- core macroketone and core macrolactam -- that are about 1,000 times more powerful at inhibiting cancer cell migration." In fact, in a mouse model, the a...

Researchers find missing genes of ancient organism

...se regions, termed introns, are sequences that are cut out of whole gene transcripts during the process of tRNA maturation. The known tRNA introns in organisms like yeast, however, appear to have no function. Therefore, modern tRNA introns might be remnants of an old essential process of tRNA biosynthesi...

Introduced foxes transformed vegetation on Aleutian Islands from lush grasslands to tundra

... marine-derived nutrients, and the foxes basically cut off the subsidies by interrupting the flow of nutrients coming from offshore," Croll said. "It transformed the plant community from one that does well in nutrient-rich conditions to one that does well in nutrient-depleted conditions." Foxes were fir...
