Super-fermenting fungus genome sequenced
...tensive pretreatment with chemicals and/or heat to loosen
up this complex. Enzymes are then employed to break down complex carbohydrate into sugars, such as glucose and xylose, which can then be fermented to produce ethanol. Additional energy is required for the distillation process to achieve a fuel-grad...
A genetic 'gang of 4' drives spread of breast cancer
...uded that metastatic cells use these same genes to loosen
up cells in capillaries, so that the cells can penetrate the lung tissue to grow there. "These findings provide a beautiful explanation for how the genes that we identified in breast cancer patients as being associated with lung metastasis manipula...
Computational analysis shows that plant hormones often go it alone
...ng genes encoding proteins called "expansins" that loosen
plant cell walls to allow for growth, the investigators found that they mobilized different members of the expansin gene family. "The data analysis showed that there is likely a complex set of interactions between the levels of hormones," explains...
