Analysis of flower genes reveals the fate of an ancient gene duplication

... such sequences appear within the chromosome. This kind of preserved gene order is known as genome synteny. In the new work, researchers have used synteny to clarify the evolution of genes essential for the development of floral reproductive organs, stamens and carpels. The subjects of their work were tw...

New Lab Research May Help Those Deafened By Immune System Attack

...and nearly all improved with steroids. Since this kind of rapid-onset hearing loss has historically been excluded from the formal definition of AISNHL, Carey suggests the definition may need re-examining in light of this strong evidence for an immune-system cause in these patients. In addition to Carey,...

...d in an interview. "A lot of scientists said this kind of genetic rescue would not work. They said if a species is rare, and its range is restricted, just adding individuals from the outside is not going to work. Some thought it would be a waste of time, a waste of money." Pimm was himself skeptical abo...

Genomics researchers discover protein deficit that causes drug toxicity

...nding is surprising because the aggresome is a new kind of mechanism to study to explain this. It's quite different from what we were thinking even a few years ago," says Liewei Wang, M.D., Ph.D., lead Mayo researcher in the study. "People are still debating what its function really is, but it appears to ...
