Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

...as an open top, much like an open-air stadium. Its general molecular formula is C268H320O52. The tiny molecules can be modified to include other functional groups that give it additional properties, Sherburn says. For instance, one highly active version of the superbowl molecule goes by the name tetrabromo-...

It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

...ent of colon cancer patients and 10 percent of the general population -- the extra IGF2 stems not from a genetic problem, or mutation, but an "epigenetic" problem that improperly turns on the copy of the IGF2 gene that should remain off. Unlike most genes, the copy of IGF2 that should be silent depends only...

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

...factors to have this dual role may represent a new general paradigm for developmental and 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 ...

Ancient olfaction protein is shared by many bugs, offering new pest control target

...found in almost all olfactory neurons and serves a general function in detecting odors. When the gene for Or83b is deleted, the flies can't smell. In the new study, Vosshall, in collaboration with researchers from Sentigen Biosciences, showed that the function of Or83b is preserved in different insects. Alt...

RNA polymerases join with so-called general transcription factors to form a pre-initiation complex (PIC) on the gene's promoter, where it binds to region rich in thymine (T) and adenine (A) named the TATA box. The first transcription factor to associate with the TATA box is called TFIID, a lar...
