Latent memory of cells comes to life

...ted between the two new DNA double strands and the empty spaces are filled by new nucleosomes. Cell division is therefore an opportunity for changes in the nucleosomal composition of a specific DNA region. Changes can also happen during the lifetime of a cell due to chemical reactions allowing interconvers...

Navigable nanotransport

...he mini-pumpkins are linked together, they form an empty sphere with many tiny cavities on its surface. These "pockets" can be filled with certain nitrogen-containing biomolecules, such as spermine, in a very stable fashion. The Korean researchers coupled spermine to the vitamin folic acid and packed th...

Chemical switch triggers critical cell activities

...r NEDD8 then hops over from the right hand to E1's empty left hand. That leaves the right hand free to grab yet another NEDD8. By continually passing the NEDD8 proteins from the right hand to the left hand and on to E2, E1 keeps a relay of these batons flowing. In turn, that keeps the specific biochemical ...

Natural protein stops deadly human brain cancer in mice

Potential vaccine developed for deadly leishmaniasis disease

...The delivery vehicle is an influenza virosome ?the empty envelope of the influenza virus. These flu virus shells contain none of the infectious genetic material in full-fledges flu viruses. The virosome also acts as an "adjuvant," boosting the immune response of the candidate vaccine. The antigen is a synt...

World's pledge to halve hunger by 2015 looks like empty promise
