Fat fish put obesity on the hook

...enetics have been well described. This is one more example of how basic experimental biology – zoology physiology and genetics in this case – can be brought to bear on human problems.” According the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of overweight and obesity have risen stea...

Turn-ons and turn-offs for neurons

...on can be used to analyze involvement of genes for example in cognition in the mouse, as was shown in key studies from 1996. But in spite of the published success, others scientists report some difficulties: in some experiments the full reactivation of Tet-regulated genes failed. Mazahir T. Hasan and colleag...

Modified mushrooms may yield human drugs

...ned. "What we are doing is taking a gene, as for example a drug gene, that is not part of the mushroom, and camouflaging it with regulatory elements from a mushroom gene. We then patch these genetic elements in the plasmid and insert it back into the bacterium," he added. The researchers then snipped sma...
