Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

...ologies permit us to survey a sufficient number of letters throughout the human genome to provide a clearer picture of how life works and ultimately allow better clinical management of patients,” said Dr. Dietrich Stephan, Director of TGen’s Neurogenomics Division and the paper’s senior author, “These new, r...

Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with lethal toxin, UF research shows

...nfection. Anthrax killed five people in 2001 when letters containing the bacteria's spores were sent through the mail. The UF findings, published last week in the EMBO Journal, may lead to quicker diagnoses for anthrax victims. The disease causes flu-like symptoms that can take weeks to develop, accordin...

Danish researches solve virus puzzle

...e ribosome sometimes slips backwards and, like the letters making up a word, it now reads a new RNA sequence and hence uses another recipe to construct the protein. The researchers have found that the stronger the pseudoknot the more often this backwards slipping happens. The different protein formed is the ...

Individuals and populations differ in gene activity levels, not just genes

...years about genetic variation, in which individual letters in the genetic code change between individuals and between different populations. However, this study is one of the first to look at the variation in gene activity between individuals and populations. The researchers found many differences in gen...

Action video games sharpen vision 20 percent

...d by about 20 percent in their ability to identify letters presented in clutter—a visual acuity test similar to ones used in regular ophthalmology clinics. In essence, playing video game improves your bottom line on a standard eye chart. "Action video game play changes the way our brains process visual ...

Nanoparticle assembly enters the fast lane

...pair up components called bases, known by the code letters A, T, G and C. "In biology, DNA is mainly an informational material, while in nanoscience, DNA is an excellent structural material due to its natural ability to self-assemble according to well-specified programmable rules," said Oleg Gang, the Br...

Molecular mechanism provides intra-cellular traffic signal

...he coordination. Molecular switches that go by the letters Ypt allow membrane-enclosed vesicles to pass in and out of cellular compartments. Activator proteins flip the switches on. One activator protein, called TRAPP, coordinates two Ypt switches for quick entrance and subsequent exit from a central cellula...

New book uses ABCs to teach children microbiology

...tos he has collected of microorganisms shaped like letters of the alphabet to illustrate the significant role microbes play in our daily lives. This intriguing book contains a glossary of important terms, as well as endpapers illustrating the relative size of organisms from viruses to whales. Age-approp...

Master planners in brain may coordinate other areas' roles in cognitive tasks

...ith the word "dog" or determining the color of the letters in the word "dog." Much of the human brain's power derives from what Petersen calls "flexible configuration of processing systems," or the ability to take one stimulus and process it in different ways to produce different feedback. Different parts ...

CHAVI announces international search for genes affecting HIV response

...for minor changes in the sequence of 3 billion DNA letters that make up the human genome. The changes, called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), are like single-letter variations in the spellings of a word. The SNPs cluster in local neighborhoods, known as haplotypes, within the genome. Most of these va...

DOE JGI finishes 100th microbial genome

...world. DOE JGI averages over 3.1 billion bases or letters of sequence generated per month, or roughly the equivalent of a human genome once over. As microbes range in size from typically five to tens of millions of bases, several microbes could be sequenced in one day. However, the sequencing process, in ...

In a technical tour de force, Salk scientists take a global view of the epigenome

...s in gene function that occur without changing the letters of the DNA alphabet - show that how a cell "reads" those letters is critical. Methylation is chemical modification of one letter C (cytosine) of the four letters ...

Outsmarting the smartie bug

...e all 90 forms of the capsule (more than 1,800,000 letters of genetic code), determined their function and studied their evolution. The work gives the most complete understanding of capsule production in any bacterial species. The new vaccine will protect children from many of the most common serotypes but ...

...tridium botulinum. Of the seven-identified by the letters A through G--botox A lasts a particularly long time in neurons. While that feature makes it especially useful in the clinic, it also means that botox A may pose a particularly dangerous threat as a biological weapon. The toxin enters neurons by bin...
