Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

... The hunch paid off and turned out to be the final piece of the puzzle. The discovery, says Zhang, demonstrates that human stem cells do not necessarily differentiate in linear fashion, as scientists always believed. Rather, a series of complex overlapping changes may well be the developmental norm in hig...

NC State scientist finds soft tissue in T. rex bones

...resent. Attempting to dissolve the minerals from a piece of fossilized bone, so the theory goes, would merely dissolve the entire fossil. But the team was surprised by what actually happened when they removed the minerals from the T. rex femur fragment. The removal process left behind stretchy bone matrix...

According to the researchers, BCA is about 1 million times more sensitive than the next best thing ?standard enzyme-linked immunoassays (ELI...

Newly discovered pathway might help in design of cancer drugs

... "Exposing DNA to radiation is like hitting a fine piece of crystal stemware with a hammer. It shatters, and looking for a particular chemical pathway is like looking for a needle in a haystack," the chemist explained. "What we did was more like carrying out a precision attack. It let us get a closer look....

Study reveals new technique for fingerprinting environmental samples

...bbreviated sequencing effort enables scientists to piece together the information and form a useful metabolic picture of an entire complex environment. This study was done in collaboration with Diversa Corporation of San Diego, Calif. who provided the DNA from the different environments which included soi...

A puzzle piece found in unraveling the wiring of the brain

...or College of Medicine in Houston have unraveled a piece of that puzzle by finding a gene that plays a key role in brain wiring. A report on their work appears today in the journal Neuron. "We were surprised to find an exocyst mutant having such specific defects," said Bellen, professor of molecular and h...

New tumor-suppressor gene discovered

...d that the mats gene had a mutation--an additional piece of DNA that had somehow become inserted into the molecular sequence of the gene. This mutation was a type of "transposable element" known to be able to jump to different locations along the DNA. The inserted material disrupted the gene's function, wh...

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

...es like a microRNA should be expected to bind to a piece of RNA of equal length and complementary sequence. And since these sequences of the microRNA were known, a computer search through the three billion letters of the human genome should find those matching sequences. But this didn't work. The homology...
