Hirsute Or Hairless? Two Proteins May Spell The Difference

...types at specific developmental stages, this study lays the foundation for dissecting the mechanisms that connect two key processes—intercellular remodeling and proliferation—in epithelial development. And since the consequences of TGF-β2 activity seen here in the hair bud more closely resemble certain ty...

This brings two key benefits to fruit growers: An end to spraying - Normally Growers wishing to use this form of virus warfare have to spray almost every element of ...

Clearing jams in copy machinery

...t encounters a problem. Pol IV, on the other hand, lays down bases without checking for errors, keeping the process moving even when Pol III gets stuck. The findings by O'Donnell and his colleagues show that, because both polymerases are bound simultaneously to the beta clamp, it can pull either of the po...
