From a Few Wild Ancestors, a Citrus Cornucopia

...forms of citrus in the world and that the rest are hybrids of these ancestral forms. The research also supports the generally held concept that most familiar citrus fruits -- including oranges, grapefruits, and lemons -- are actually hybrids. A Chosen Few Part of this can be explained by the fact that citr...

Islands in the Genome Promote Speciation

...f possible cross-flow of genetic material (natural hybrids between the two forms are found at a low frequency) between two populations, the populations can still be accumulating differences in their genomes—differences that could eventually lead to the formation of new species. Comparing results in Anopheles...

New evidence supports century-old theory of cancer spread

...egan testing the theory in 1993, when they created hybrids in the lab by fusing mouse melanoma cells with mouse macrophages. "Their behavior was astonishing," said Pawelek. "In culture dishes, fused cells were extraordinarily motile compared to unfused melanoma cells. They spread rapidly when implanted in ...

Molecule by molecule, new assay shows real-time gene activity

...to a handful of protein molecules, these Tsr-Venus hybrids migrate to the cell membrane, where each attaches firmly. The clearly visible flash from each Tsr-Venus molecule -- which when viewed across a population of cells looks somewhat akin to a sea of cellular paparazzi -- serves as an indication of that s...

Study provides new understanding of spontaneous hybridization

...y crossing two parent species. Not only were these hybrids resistant to the insects that attack sunflowers, they also produced more seeds than the uncrossed plants. "The results show for the first time that adaptive trait introgression can be a potent evolutionary force, broadening our view of the mechanis...

OHSU study says stem cell 'fusion' occurs in tumors

...d in repair of the epithelium, but the cell fusion hybrids that remain are generally unstable. Fusion may be an underlying molecular explanation of why these cells might be more susceptible to cancer development." In the PNAS study, Wong and her colleagues transplanted bone marrow cells from female mice int...

Researchers find protein that silences genes

...role in nucleolar dominance. They made transgenic hybrids in which each of the deacetylases were knocked out one by one and then examined the plants to see if there were effects on nucleolar dominance. In this process they found that knocking down HDA6 eliminated nucleolar dominance, such that the normally...
