Darkness unveils vital metabolic fuel switch between sugar and fat

...What actually sets off hibernation? "These animals dig deep burrows," said Lee, an expert in circadian rhythms. "They are constantly in the dark. Why not darkness as a switch?" Mice do not hibernate but they can slip into a similar short-term state of torpor. Lee and colleagues started with a microar...

Mining for gems in the fungal genome

... "genomic mining" because of its robust ability to dig through an entire fungal genome to locate nearly all the hidden gems-the actively-produced secondary metabolites-at once. The key to Keller's approach lies in a single fungal protein called LaeA. A few years ago, her team discovered that the pres...
