Killing the messenger RNA -- But which one?

... to about double its normal levels. This, in turn, drove levels of uric acid up to about two times what they should be. "This confirmed that our original computer prediction of differential targeting by unedited and edited microRNAs of different sets of genes is likely to be correct," Nishikura says. "A...

First biomarker for human sleepiness identified in fruit flies

...ls in response to these drugs, they found caffeine drove amylase activity up while methamphetamine did not. Flies dosed with the herbicide paraquat did not have increased amylase levels, suggesting changes in amylase activity were not related to stress.

That drove the Hopkins researchers to seek and develop this new system, by which virtually any DNA sequence can be tested for its ability to turn on a marker gene in zebrafish embryos. The system is a significant advance over current methods in this model speci...

Junk DNA may not be so junky after all
