Dinosaur DNA? New Patent Covers Degraded DNA recovery

... available later this year. "We don't plan to turn house cats into saber tooth cats or create a Jurassic Theme Park anytime soon. But we do think this breakthrough has many applications yet to be discovered and we look forward to working with our colleagues to thoroughly examine all the possibilities," say...

Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

...ully the patient's own, as if the dead bone were a house being renovated by replacing a single brick at a time without tearing the whole structure apart. Schwarz's studies with mice showed their dead splints were quickly converted to new, healthy bone. He projects that the bone would be completely convert...

Needling Chromosomes Reveals Cell Division Secret

...omes are thetiny fiber structures in the cell that house its genes. They replicateand separate in the process of cell division. The exquisite management of adhesion properties between newly divided chromosomes, called chromatids, is crucial if the cells are to divide properly. In this process chromatids a...

Fleshing out the genome

...in Richland, Wash., now suggests a way to put this house in order. They offer a powerful new method that integrates experimental and computational analyses to ascribe function to genes that had been termed "hypothetical" -- sequences that appear in the genome but whose biological purposes were previously u...

Duke engineers develop new 3-D cardiac imaging probe

...asing of a commercially available 2-D TEE probe to house their new 3-D model. The casing design already has been tested and approved for use. The new Duke 3-D probe is tipped with a dime-sized array of 504 individual ultrasound sensors. Each sensor is as wide as a few human hairs. "It took a craftsman to ...

Maine Researchers Find Exceptions to Old Rules of Genetic Inheritance

Program finds lost genes in nematode genome

...alyses. This is important for finding exons, which house the coding machinery of proteins. While getting intron length is helpful for gene annotation, the process is 15 times slower than the typical, less accurate methods. Being able to define intron length has implications for the human genome, which is m...

Gene expands malaria's invasion options

Cowman of The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia, and the study's senior author. "When you remove sialic acid, you block half the doors. W2mef normally goes in through the receptor...

Scientists discover stem cell origin of neck and shoulders

Since the mid 1960s, researchers knew that house dust contains endotoxin, but it is only within the last five years that they began to understand the impact of household endotoxin on human health. Knowing what triggers asthma, whether it is endotoxins or something else, may help a physician better ...
