Molecular biology fills gaps in knowledge of bat evolution

...hey diversified and how different bat families are related to each other," Springer said. "It also quantifies the fraction of the fossil record that is missing for bats." The team, using DNA sequencing, analyzed data from portions of 17 nuclear genes from representatives of all bat families. Their results ...

Mitochondrial DNA mutations play significant role in prostate cancer

....To determine whether mtDNA mutations are causally related to prostatecancer, the researchers introduced into a prostate cancer cell linemtDNAs harboring a known disease-causing mtDNA mutation and, as acontrol, the same mtDNA but without the disease mutation. They theninjected these modified prostate cancer ...

Molecular machine may lead to new drugs to combat human diseases

...fe evolved. "It's thought that RNA, or a molecule related to RNA, possibly were the first biomolecules, because they are capable of both performing work and carrying around their own genetic code," Golden said.
