Loss of a universal tRNA feature reported

...the extra guanylate in tRNAHis is a unique case of divergence from a highly conserved ancient tRNA recognition mechanism by an aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase. It will be of special interest to examine if the loss of this tRNA feature has resulted from the presence of an RNase P enzyme that is no longer capable of ca...

Scientists discover new life forms in the Arctic Ocean

...known groups," explains Dr. Lovejoy. "In fact, the divergence of this group from known organisms is as great as the difference between land plants and animals," adds the scientist. Over this last year the team has been scouring data bases, verifying their results and applying new techniques to their samples. ...

The authors point out that song divergence within a species as a result of such “environmental shaping?could potentially play a crucial role in the process of speciation, although it is not at all clear whether urban and forest populations of great tits are on such a path.

Genetic study of Neanderthal DNA reveals early split between humans and Neanderthals

The scientists also used data from the HapMap genome project to understand the relationship between modern human diversity and the Neanderthal sequence. Their analysis showed that the Neanderthal sequence could not have come from any mode...

Scientists elucidate the kinome of key model organism

... the evolutionary history of the metazoa after the divergence of the plants but before that of the fungi. "Our findings document the impressive evolutionary creativity of the Dictyostelium kinome- a large portion of the kinases are unique to Dictyostelium, and are probably involved in unique aspects of this or...

...or to ?and have been largely maintained since ?the divergence of eutherian mammals and marsupials approximately 170 million years ago." The opossum was chosen for inclusion in the analysis because it is a marsupial that has a similar load of transposable elements compared to mice and humans but is evolutionari...

Dog genome sequenced

...dog and human chromosomes. Since the evolutionary divergence of dogs and humans approximately 95 million years ago, canine chromosomes have undergone considerable breakage relative to other species. In contrast to the 46 chromosomes present in each human cell, dogs possess 78 chromosomes, but each set essenti...

'Perception' gene tracked humanity's evolution, scientists say

In order to identify sequence changes that occurred in Microcephalin and ASPM in the evolutionary lineage leading to humans, Lahn and his colleagues took the following approach: They determined the DNA sequences of the tw...

'Punctuated' evolution in the human genome

Can our genes tell the story of our divergence?

...th species should harbor genetic footprints of our divergence ?the subject of a recent study in the premier open-access journal PLoS Biology. One way to find such genetic signatures is to search for genes that reveal signs of positive natural selection. The assumption is that genes touched by positive selectio...
