Genome of deadly amoeba shows surprising complexity, evidence of lateral gene transfer

...ondrial human pathogens. The analysis reveals the degradation of the E. histolytica genome in its transition from a free-living organism into a parasite of the human gut. At the same time, scientists also cataloged the retention and expansion of some gene families characteristic of more complex organisms. Deta...

Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

...best knownfor its function in marking proteins for degradation by a wastedisposal unit known as a proteasome. Hayashi et al. sought to study thepossibility that ubiquitination might play a part in rendering theunbound Notch receptor inert. Their attention was drawn to Nedd4 (amember of the ubiquitin ligase famil...

...rate than any time in history." The environmental degradation carried out to meet demand for food, fiber, timber, fresh water, fuel and other resources has begun to jeopardize more subtle services that nature has always provided free of charge, he said. Making matters worse, he added, the world's poorest people...

Scientists discuss improved biopesticides for locust control in West Africa

...biopesticides is low in the environment because of degradation from sunlight," Agblevor said. "We have developed coating technologies to improve on the environmental persistence of the biopesticide, specifically a lignin coating for the spores, which increases their resistance to ultraviolet radiation." Research...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

... And third, it activates genes involved in protein degradation to get rid of excess unfolded proteins. So you reduce the load, get rid of garbage and increase efficiency. If these don't work, the cell will die." "Recently, scientists have discovered that the unfolded protein response is activated in many diseas...

Biomarkers isolated from saliva successfully predict oral and breast cancer

...ubjects. New techniques were developed to halt RNA degradation so the scientists could recover as much mRNA as possible for their samples. In all, the new techniques allowed the scientists to harvest up to 10,000 types of human mRNA from saliva, setting up a comparison test between cancer patients and the normal...

The study was a collaborative effort between the laboratory of Timothy J. Triche, at Children's Hospital of Los...

Putting ecology back into river restoration

...rsity of Maryland: "Given the rapid rate of global degradation of fresh waters, and the fact that river and stream restoration has become a booming enterprise, it is time to agree on what constitutes successful river and stream restoration." Palmer and her colleagues say that the success of river restoration sho...
