Molecular machine may lead to new drugs to combat human diseases
...use biochemical reactions. Scientists can use this knowledge
to manipulate the intron to splice out malfunctioning genes, said Barbara Golden, associate professor of biochemistry. Normal genes then can take over without actually changing the genetic code. The results of the Purdue study are published in the J...
Sea skate experiment sheds light on human cell transport
