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...

Engineers improve plastic's potential for use in implants by linking it to biological material

...bacteriophage that was purchased commercially. To hunt for the plastic-preferring peptide, Sanghvi and Miller added a solution containing bacteriophages that displayed different peptides to a container with polypyrrole stuck on its inner surface. The bacteriophages that didn't wash away when exposed to c...

...iny guided protein missiles -- that can target and hunt down cancer cells. The plants promise to provide a cheaper, faster method of producing anticancer antibodies, raising hopes that the technology can one day be used in humans.

It may seem unusual that toxic venoms can also be a source of pain relieving medication for humans. Associate Professor Livett explains, "It appears that cone snails have adopted the gen...

Primate virus jumps species barrier to humans for first time in Asia

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

In the case of the genetically normal offspring of two half-telomerase parents, however, the disease is still present. Th...

Newly discovered birdlike dinosaur is oldest raptor ever found in South America

...usual dentition, it may have been an adaptation to hunt small prey, such as the abundant burrowing snakes, mammals, and lizards that have been discovered alongside Buitreraptor.

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,...

While they've identified several proteins on the surface of RSV, an important step toward creating a vaccine, none of the vaccines they've tested has panned out. So while people tense up about the availability of flu vacc...

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--...

...wned eagles and possibly leopards. But humans also hunt and kill Kipunji, and eat their meat. "Any hunting of the Kipunji or loss of its vulnerable habitat, with the latter probably increasing the frequency of the former, will further serve to threaten this important new genus," the authors conclude. ...
