A new mechanism of regulating RNA degradation

...on. Those observations, said Maquat, sent Kim on a hunt for what Staufen1 and Upf1 were doing. Looking at gene expression data available through the lab of Luc DesGroseillers, Ph.D. at the University of Montreal, they found that Staufen1 protein binds to numerous RNAs. Downregulating the amount of Staufe...

HIV, the virus that causes AIDS in humans, is believed to have originated as simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), and jumped the species barrier to humans when African bushmeat hunters came into contact with blood from infected anim...

Researchers predict infinite genomes

Honeybee decision-making ability rivals any department committee

When 10,000 honeybees fly the coop to hunt for a new home, usually a tree cavity, they have a unique method of deciding which site is right: With great efficiency they narrow down the options and minimize their bad decisions. Their technique, says Cornell University biologist Thomas Seeley,...

Failure of 'scout cells' may lead to cancer in transplant patients

... the memory T cells, which rapidly proliferate and hunt down and kill any cells that contain growing virus or have become cancerous. If memory T cells are re-stimulated properly, they can kill the cancerous cells before PTLD develops, VanBuskirk says. But if that re-stimulation is weak or is blocked, n...

Massive duplication of genes may solve Darwin's 'abominable mystery' about flowering plants

...s and colleagues relied on a statistical filter to hunt for ancient duplications. In order to show that such an event occurred early in angiosperm history, dePamphilis and his colleagues had to compare the genomes of "basal" angiosperms--those whose ancestors diverged from the rest early in the lineage--...
