Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

... sequencing, scientists first extract DNA from the nuclei of cells and through a painstaking series of bacterial cloning and/or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) steps, reduce its length to a manageable size of thousands of nucleotides. Using natural replicating enzymes, the DNA is tagged with four fluorescen...

Research Using Mouse Models Reveals A Novel Key Player In The Initiation Of Colon Cancer

...cumulation of a protein called beta-catenin in the nuclei of these cells. Kaestner's group had earlier published research on a transcription factor called Foxl1 that is also expressed in the colon, but in a different layer of cells, adjacent to the epithelium, called the mesenchyme. They had seen that mice...

Cooperation is key—a new way of looking at MicroRNA and how it controls gene expression

...e tens of thousands of stretches of DNA within the nuclei of cells we call our genes. One thing that has become clear in the last several decades, however, is that while our genes contribute to human health and disease, it is not always the genes themselves that matter, but rather how the genes are control...

Double triumph in stem cell quest

...method starts with an existing human ESC line. The nuclei containing the DNA of the ESCs are removed by spinning them in a centrifuge. Verlinsky would not reveal the details of his technique, but other teams glue cells to a surface and spin them until the denser nucleus is forced out. Then the team take ce...

...organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. In the nuclei of developing germ cells, MSY2 enhances synthesis of a select group of messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules and transports them from the nucleus into the cytoplasm. There, MSY2 proteins stabilize the mRNAs, which are used to make new proteins. Many of thes...

Researchers devise new technique for creating human stem cells

...e human stem cells. SCNT involves transferring the nuclei of adult cells, called somatic cells, into oocytes in which scientists have removed the nuclei. The researchers said that -- while the technique might one day be used along with SCNT, which involves the use of unfertilized human eggs -- technical hu...

Sugar helps control cell division

...that removes the sugar from proteins ended up with nuclei that didn't look right under a powerful microscope. Instead of being disseminated fairly uniformly through the entire nucleus, the genetic material of these cells was bunched up, giving the contents of the nucleus a "wrinkly" appearance. Exactly wha...

If the body is to produce a specific protein, the appropriate page of the encyclopedia is copied (rewritten or 'transcribed'). Only the copies can leave the cell nucleus.
