Genome of deadly amoeba shows surprising complexity, evidence of lateral gene transfer

...teristic of more complex organisms. For example, a family of membrane receptors appears to be one of the mechanisms by which the parasite senses the presence of its human host and translates environmental cues into signaling events, which are processed by the parasite. Another unusual feature of the genome...

Newly-discovered class of genes determines ?and restricts ?stem cell fate

... stem-cell biology. "My idea is that this is a new family of genes--they can both determine the cell type, but also put the breaks on differentiation," says Epstein. "We have named them pangenes, after the Greek god Pan and Peter Pan, who were able to orchestrate complex events while never growing old." Ep...

Scientists Replicate Hepatitis C Virus in Laboratory

Proteins in the cell membrane must first beinternalized through a pr...

Iron Deficiency Sparks Dramatic Changes In Gene Expression

...ct,the Cth2 protein in yeast is quite similar to a family of threeproteins in humans. When the human proteins are substituted in place ofCth2 in yeast, they actually assume its function in yeast cells, saidThiele."Yeast cells illuminate for us what to look for in human cells," saidThiele. "Current diagnosti...
