Timing is everything: First step in protein building revealed

...ces. "We see disease largely as anincorrect timing event -- the wrong thing happening at the wrong time,or the lack of the right thing."As a result, Lorsch studies the timing of how the ribosome complexitself assembles and how other factors come and go as it translatesgenetic information to build proteins,...

Researchers reveal the infectious impact of salmon farms on wild salmon

...xported its lice generating properties ?a cyclical event establishing the potential for re-infections up and down the coast. As the abundance of lice increases, we are now realizing that lice will attack other species, not only salmon, but other fish such as herring which are the spark plugs of the entire ...

MSI releases 'moleculizer' - a new approach to simulation of intracellular biochemical networks

...zer 1.0" (pdf) describes MSI's discrete stochastic event simulator, which keeps trackof the thousands of complex species formed from pathway proteins as itsimulates reactions between them by a standard Monte Carlo method. Adistinguishing aspect of Moleculizer is its ability to generate proteincomplexes and...

New research indicates a 'troubled' greenhouse is brewing

...o have been in play during a well-known greenhouse event some 55 million years ago during the late Paleocene epoch. Retallack explored the relationship between seasonality and rainfall in soils, then applied the same techniques to buried soils spanning the ancient greenhouse event. "This is known to have ...

Measuring the impact of post-genomics on Mediterranean populations

... bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Delegates at the event also discussed the importance of Euro-Mediterranean partnerships in order to capitalise on post-genomic research. The life sciences ?in particular following the mapping of the human genome ?offer vast opportunities to improve scientific knowledge an...

Scientists find fossil proof of Egypt's ancient climate

... Our climate data from this 130,000-year-old humid event suggest that this would have been a particularly good time for a northward migration through Africa following reliable water resources, since it seems to be the strongest humid phase in this region over the past 400,000 years. We're also testing the ...

Fibril Shape Is The Basis Of Prion Strains And Cross-species Prion Infection

...ission to Candida albicans yeast. The transmission event led to a new strain of Candida prion fibrils that could in turn infect Saccharomyces. Although fibril shape appears to be the deciding infective factor, amino acid sequence is still important because it defines a set of possible preferred fibril sha...

First technology to remove prions that cause vCJD from blood launched

...ability of our prion reduction filter is a seminal event heralding a new era in blood safety," says Eric Krasnoff, Chairman and CEO of Pall Corporation. "We are working very closely with health authorities, starting with the nations hardest hit by vCJD, to help protect the safety of the blood supply and pr...

Advancements In Genomics Foster Deep Sea Discoveries

In the pancreatic tumors and metastases from the mouse model, the investigators characterized other molecules implicated in pancreatic cance...

Low oxygen likely made Great Dying worse, greatly delayed recovery

Mosaic mouse technique offers a powerful new tool to study diseases and genetics

...a bad copy (mutation) of a gene, the recombination event could cause an offspring to inherit two bad copies of the gene, which would result in a mutant cell. This process simultaneously activates the green fluorescent protein, which turns the mutant cell green. "If there is no recombination, there are nei...
