'Insulator' helps silence genes in dormant herpes virus

...t to replicate. In this dormant state, only a tiny fragment of the virus genome ?a single gene called the Latency-Associated Transcript gene (LAT) ?remains active. Scientists have long puzzled over the mechanism used to keep this small region of the genome going while nearby genes remain quiescent. Now, sc...

Darwin's famous finches and Venter's marine microbes

... at the Craig Venter Institute, compared every DNA fragment with every other available DNA fragment to produce clusters of related sequences. This exhaustive analysis predicted more than 6 million pro...

Scientists discover a new risk factor for Alzheimer's

...creased cells' production of amyloid-beta, a toxic fragment of another protein that destroys neurons. Production of amyloid-beta is the key event in the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Amyloid-beta is made when cells improperly break down a protein called amyloid precursor protein (APP). Previous resea...

Discovery of an HIV inhibitor in human blood points to new drug class

..., they showed that a few amino acid changes in the fragment enhanced its antiretroviral potency by two orders of magnitude. VIRIP and its derivatives remained effective against drug-resistant HIV strains, making them "highly promising for further clinical development," according to the researchers. "The fi...

Common mechanisms for viral DNA replication

...re of the DNA-binding domain of SV40 T-ag on a DNA fragment derived from the viral origin of replication. The structure shows that although T-ag and its functionally analogous protein, papilloma virus E1, share no detectable sequence homology in this region, the two domains bind the DNA in similar ways. In b...

A sweet step toward new cancer therapies

...ad of the usual "shake-it-til-it breaks" method to fragment proteins. But that method requires the presence of at least two positive charges, which can be difficult to accomplish with acidic molecules, such as proteins with sulfate or phosphate groups attached. Hakansson's group has been exploring the use...

Early-stage immune system control of HIV may depend on inherited factors

...RC/MGH) report that specific HLA Class I/HIV viral fragment combinations are associated with a more powerful antiviral response, findings that may help develop vaccines against HIV. "We found that only a limited number of viral protein fragments from HIV-1 are targeted by the immune system in early infectio...

New drug blocks influenza, including bird flu virus

...rt. The new drug, known as "entry blocker," is a fragment of a larger human protein whose role in biology is to help things pass through membranes such as those that encapsulate cells. Although the peptide's precise mechanism for thwarting flu remains to be deciphered, it seems to work by blocking the vir...

"What we learn could apply to any organism that has to move to find food," he added Åland Islands are natural laboratory The study, "Popu...

Caterpillars tell us how bacteria cause disease

"We are very excited by the opportunities that we can now explore thanks t...

Radiologists attempt to solve mystery of Tut's demise

...-ray in 1968, revealing what appeared to be a bone fragment in his skull, it has been widely speculated that a blow to the head killed the boy king. However, Dr. Selim and colleagues found several pieces of evidence to the contrary. In the cranial cavity, they found loose bone fragments that were not covered ...

When the proteins later bind to form a heterodimer, the fluorescent-protein fragments are reunited, causing them to glow green when illuminated with a light source. The fluorescence enabled the re...
