A new mechanism of regulating RNA degradation

...ng protein and some of its functions in the common fruit fly Drosophila are understood. "But no one knew what Staufen1 did in human cells," said Maquat, even though its presence in mammalian cells has been recognized for several years. "We were surprised to find that Staufen1 interacts with Upf1," she add...

Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

...theidentification of a mutant strain of Drosophila fruit flies with“notched?wings in Thomas Hunt Morgan’s lab in 1910. Later studiesrevealed that the Notch gene encodes a receptor protein that extendsthrough both sides of the cell membrane and which is capable ofinteracting with a ligand partner, such as t...

Researchers identify target for cancer drugs

... in human cells but in other organisms such as the fruit fly. Finding this complex conserved in species as diverse as flies and humans supports the claim that the mTOR/rictor complex is indeed a missing piece of the puzzle. According to Sarbassov, "If we find a molecule that can block the mTOR/rictor comp...

Scientists document complex genomic events leading to the birth of new genes

...from a broad range of taxa (mouse, rat, roundworm, fruit fly, mosquito, and pufferfish) for single-copy genes that had evolved more than one copy in humans. "Gene duplication is known to play a leading role in evolution for the creation of new genes," explained Francesca Ciccarelli, Ph.D., lead author on t...

PANTHER Protein Classification System Database 5.0

...urce.?The PANTHER system functional annotations of fruit fly genes have beenavailable for two years as part of an ongoing collaboration withFlyBase. “The task of performing functional annotation of genomes ischallenging. Too often we rely simply on transitive annotation based ona BLAST match. The PANTHER s...

Examination of internal 'wiring' of yeast, worm, and fly reveals conserved circuits

"It may be that childhood represents a time of heightened bitter taste sensitivity in some children, which lessens with age. Such a scenario would account for...

Molecular Motors Cooperate In Moving Cellular Cargo, Study Shows

...k down toxic substances) inside specially cultured fruit fly cells. This was the first time the imaging technique had been used inside a living cell. "Our measurements show that both dynein and kinesin carry the peroxisomes in a step-by-step fashion, moving about 8 nanometers per step," said Selvin, who a...

50-year-old Mystery Solved: Protein Tags Regulate Key Ion Channel

...) potassium channels in yeast cells in 1995 and in fruit flies in 1996. Although potassium leak was first described in the 1950s when it was recognized to control excitation of nerves, the reason for leak had not previously been understood. The first human clone of this channel, K2P1, generated a good dea...

Stem cells from brain transformed to produce insulin at Stanford

...steps toward producing insulin. In insects such as fruit flies, the cells that produce insulin and regulate blood sugar are, in fact, neurons. Taken together, this evidence suggested to Kim that neural stem cells may be able to produce insulin. Despite Kim's informed hunch, the fact that it worked is a bi...

Scientists identify molecule that regulates well-known tumor suppressor

... and colleagues used a genetic screening method in fruit flies and identified the molecule DJ-1 as a PTEN suppressor. In studies with mammalian cells, low levels of DJ-1 correlated with decreased PKB/Akt activity, while increased DJ-1 led to activation of PKB/Akt and enhanced cell survival. In cancer cell...
