RNA map provides first comprehensive understanding of alternative splicing

...known as pre-mRNA, is pieced together to produce a mature mRNA that codes for cellular proteins. In alternative splicing, different pieces of this pre-mRNA, called exons, are stitched together to produce different mRNAs, and thus different proteins. The exon can be spliced in or out in a binary, computer-li...

Researchers identify a key regulator for skin stem cells

...mice blocked differentiation of all three types of mature skin cells -- epidermal, sebaceous, and hair follicle. "We've known for some time that Tcf3 can operate with a co-factor called â-catenin and initiate skin stem cells to make hair follicles. But we hadn't realized that Tcf3 could act on its own to ke...

Global changes alter the timing of plant growth, scientists say

Any gardener knows--different plant species mature at different times. Scientists studying plant communities in natural habitats call this phenomenon "complementarity." It allows many species to co-exist because it reduces overlap in the time period when species compete for limited resources. Now, in...

Evolution under the microscope The tandem arrangement and structural similarities of the him and zim genes suggest they all arose from a common ancestor through gene duplication and subsequent selection.

This was the first study to analyze the molecular and cellular mechanisms of fracture healing in mice exposed to smoke. The authors note that while the study shows a clear relationship between...

Mutant gene causes severe kidney disease in infants

...We found that PLCE1 is expressed in developing and mature podocytes," says Hildebrandt. "Most of the PLCE1 mutations we identified apparently prevented podocytes from developing normally in the embryo, so defects were present at birth. A milder mutation seemed to interfere with repair mechanisms in the glom...

U of MN researchers turn cord blood into lung cells

... The cells and the air sacs as a whole continue to mature and develop through a child's first few years of life. Now the researchers will try to better characterize the cells, so that in the future, the cells could be used as a research tool to better understand lung development and disease. The cells ma...

Cancer cells forming blood vessels send their copper to the edge

...ntrast to both non-vascularized areas and areas of mature blood vessels, in areas of tissue where blood vessels were newly invading surrounding tissue, the cells showed copper localized at the periphery of the cells and in areas immediately outside of any apparent cellular structures." What are the impli...

Study of planarians offers insight into germ cell development

...e and development of germ cells. Blocking nanos in mature adults caused their ovaries and testes to disappear. And when the researchers blocked nanos expression in planarians that had had their bodies and reproductive organs detached from their brains, the planarians regenerated new bodies, but with no repr...

Update on census of world's most endangered cat -- Female Amur leopard found dead

...ological Society of London found that the 77 pound mature female leopard was shot in the back side. The bullet came through tail bone, crushed the hip bones and lodged in the belly. She was then beaten to death with a heavy object. “The killing of even one female is a huge loss for a cat on the brink of...

Amur leopard still on the brink of extinction, scientists say

... Academy of Science. According to Dr Pikunov, a mature leopard needs 500 square kilometers of habitat with good forests and high and stable amounts of ungulates, including deer. Two to four female leopards would live in the same amount of land, reproduce and nourish their cubs. "Maybe this is the reas...

The desert is dying

...n Desert of Egypt. In places more than 50% of the mature trees have disappeared between 1965 and 2003, while almost no new trees have been recruited. Despite extreme aridity the main cause of tree mortality seems not to be climate, but commercial charcoal production. This indicates that the traditional and...
