Study Demonstrates Gene Expression Microarrays are Comparable and Reproducible

...te labs was only slightly lower thancorrelation of duplicated experiments within the same labs. “Thisstudy is a key first step in moving gene expression data fromsmall-scale bench science into large-scale clinical evaluation,?saidJames Jacobson, Ph.D., chief of NCI’s Diagnostic Biomarkers andTechnology Branch....

NC State scientist finds soft tissue in T. rex bones

...ne cells from the ostrich sample. Schweitzer then duplicated her findings with at least three other well-preserved dinosaur specimens, one 80-million-year-old hadrosaur and two 65-million-year-old tyrannosaurs. All of these specimens preserved vessels, cell-like structures, or flexible matrix that resembled bo...

...markable because this nanoscale precision can't be duplicated by man." Besides this remarkable precision, nature manages to produce silica at a low temperature, in an environmentally friendly way without the use of caustic chemicals, whereas man must use very high temperatures, high vacuums, and dangerous chem...

...ezing point. The genome also possesses a number of duplicated genes important to cell membrane biosynthesis. What's more, C. psychrerythraea dresses in layers, generating plenty of extracellular polysaccharides (sugars) that coat cell membranes. Aside from its cellular outerwear, C. psychrerythraea generates a...

Rutgers researchers scientifically link dancing ability to mate quality

...be how they created computer-animated figures that duplicated the movements of 183 Jamaican teenagers dancing to popular music. The researchers then asked peers of the dancers to evaluate the dancing ability of these animated figures. The figures were gender-neutral, faceless and the same size ?all to keep eval...

Brainstem blocks pain to protect key behaviors

...FF cells were excited during feeding, results that duplicated the effects of morphine. The changes occurred only during selected portions of eating, while the animal was both holding and chewing the food. A similar response took place when the animals drank water or urinated. This response "protects critical...

NHGRI announces new sequencing targets

...es where larger segments of DNA have been deleted, duplicated or rearranged ?all of which can cause disease by disrupting the structure and function of genes. A recent analysis has shown that these large-scale structural variations are much more common than previously appreciated. In fact, the genomes of any ...

Insects that produce males from unfertilized eggs reveal a surprising cellular feat

... called the mitotic spindle, which pulls apart the duplicated chromosomes so that each of the two daughter cells gets a complete set of chromosomes. The centrosome contains about a hundred different proteins, including the main protein for making microtubules, called gamma tubulin. The UCSC researchers studie...

The CGH analysis netted a large number of areas showing such alterations in the myeloma cells from patients. Then the scientists asked whether any specific pattern or combination of these aberrations in an indiv...

Toxic molecule may cause most common type of muscular dystrophy

...team led by Dr. Mani Mahadevan, a UVa pathologist, duplicated the disease in mice. "We showed in our mouse model that when you make this poisonous RNA the mice get various aspects of myotonic dystrophy," Mahadevan said. "Then, when you take away the toxic RNA, the mice get back to normal." Mahadevan hopes the...

'Signature' of chromosome instability predicts cancer outcomes

...e chromosomes to break and bits of DNA to be lost, duplicated or reshuffled to the wrong chromosomes. Cells have repair mechanisms that constantly fix this damage, but when the repair process breaks down, chromosomes become unstable and cancers are more likely to develop. Chromosomal instability leads to a ...

Segmental duplications cover 5.3 percent of the human genome, significantly more than in the rat genome, which has about 3 percent, or the mouse g...

Scientists reverse evolution

...pproach to gene therapy, Tvrdik says. If a gene duplicated into two and they evolved separate functions in the body ?for example, one gene works in the liver and the other in the brain ?then "if the brain version of the gene becomes mutated or deleted [to cause a disease] and its gene replacement is difficul...

Parallel evolution: Proteins do it, too
