What Makes The Brain Tick, Tick, Tick: Researchers Gaining New Insights Into Brain's Internal Clock

...anging your position in space." Understanding the machinery of interval timing is profoundly difficult because...of previous durations. Such features have made the machinery of interval timing more elusive, and some even questioned whether an internal clock of this sort eve...

Purdue researchers find key to rice blast fungus

...ue University scientists to discover the molecular machinery that enables the pathogen to blast its way into rice plants. The fungus, Magnaporthe grisea, which is known as rice blast fungus, is the most deadly of the pathogens that attack rice, reducing yields by as much as 75 percent in infected areas. Learn...

UW scientists report a new method to speed bird flu vaccine production

...n nature, viruses commandeer a cell's reproductive machinery to make new virus particles, which go on to infect other cells and make yet more virus particles. Vaccine makers use a monkey kidney cell line to make non-virulent viruses that serve as the raw material for vaccines.The technique reported by the Wis...

Virus uses tiny RNA to evade the immune system

... first to show how a virus uses the gene silencing machinery for its own infectious purposes. In people, plants, and worms, hundreds of tiny RNA molecules can silence specific genes by interfering with larger messenger RNAs (mRNAs). That interference prevents mRNAs from making proteins. Scientists do not know...

Stressed cells spark DNA repair missteps and speed evolution

...print. Usually, when this happens, special protein machinery in the cell copies the missing DNA from another chromosome and rejoins the broken ends around the newly synthesized genetic material. "It fixes the hole in the DNA by copying similar information," said Rosenberg. However, when the process goes wron...

Researchers find how some antibiotics kill bacteria

...eria called RNA polymerase. RNA polymerase is the machinery that keeps bacteria going ?a bacterium cannot carry out gene expression without it. Cut off gene expression and bacteria are dead. In their study, the researchers looked at the effects of rifapentin and rifabutin on E. coli RNA polymerase. With rece...

Clearing jams in copy machinery

...cation in the face of DNA damage. The replication machinery inside the cell's nucleus is made up of a collection of enzymes including DNA polymerases, sliding clamps and clamp loaders. Bacteria have five known DNA polymerases (higher organisms such as humans have more). As the ring-shaped beta sliding clamp w...

UIC developing drug for SARS

..., the SARS virus multiplies rapidly, hijacking the machinery of the cells it infects to clone itself over and over again. One of the first steps in that process is the production of a long chain of proteins, all of which are needed for the virus to propagate. Two enzymes, or proteases, clip the chain to relea...

Simple sea sponge helps scientists understand tissue rejection

Study: Predatory dinosaurs had bird-like pulmonary system

...d. It appears that these animals had the pulmonary machinery for enhanced gas exchange, O'Connor explained, which would have pushed them closer to being warm-blooded creatures. Previous research that pointed to a more crocodilian-like pulmonary system was based on a study of two dinosaur skeletons encased in ...

Researchers create infectious hepatitis C virus in a test tube

...not replicate by itself; instead it takes over the machinery of a host cell to make copies of itself. Much about the life cycle of HCV remains poorly understood because scientists have been unable to reproduce an infectious form of HCV that they can observe in cell cultures. The method developed by Rice and hi...

'Shifty-eyed' Monkeys Offer Window Into Brain's Social Reflexes

...sides offering a basic understanding of the neural machinery of such social reflexes, said Platt, such a model could yield insights into such disorders as autism. 'Children with autism tend not to orient to other individuals,' he said. 'They don't tend to look other people in the eye, and in particular they sh...

Now, investigators at Carnegie Mellon University have discovered that a novel mechanism, called recursive splicing, removes long introns by steadily paring them down in...
