Cigarette smoke alters DNA in sperm, genetic damage could pass to offspring

... in mice that smoking can cause changes in the DNA sequence of sperm cells, alterations that could potentially be inherited by offspring. The results of their study are published in the June 1 issue of Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. “Here we are looking at male...

Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance

...fMDR1 gene. They first obtained the PfMDR1 protein sequence from the NIH PubMed data base. They then "back translated" the protein sequence using a computer program to change the parasite gene sequence − which combines nucleotide base pai...

New collaborative research reveals chimpanzees can sustain multiple-tradition cultures

...nce, the majority of the chimpanzees followed that sequence for the remainder of the testing period. Over time, the different methods chosen by each high-ranking female were passed among members of her group, thereby becoming a local tradition. In all, the researchers observed 10 traditions spread through...

Mutating the entire genome

...gineer a mouse with a particular gene or other DNA sequence knocked out. So using existing technology to knock out the estimated 20,000 mouse genes would cost $200 million, and knocking out the roughly 300,000 non-gene DNA sequences in mice would cost $3 billion, he adds. The new method is a faster, cheap...

Weizmann Institute scientists develop a general 'control switch' for protein activity

...a short segment of amino acids into the amino acid sequence making up the protein. This segment is capable of binding strongly and selectively to a particular chemical drug, which affects the activity level of the engineered protein by increasing or reducing it.

Gene mutation linked to cognition is found only in humans

...s note. They identified a region of the chimpanzee sequence that has a weakening effect on the splicing site that also probably applies to humans. "It is likely that both the creation of novel splice form and the weakening of the constitutive splicing contribute to the splicing pattern changes during primate ...

UCLA AIDS Institute researchers find a peptide that encourages HIV infection

... RC-111 is also cyclic and has the same amino acid sequence as retrocyclin-1. In both peptides, the amino acids are strung like 18 beads along the molecule's backbone. The amino acids in RC-111, however, are in reverse order. The researchers had initially wanted to quantify previous research by Dr. Robert...
