Pathway toward gene silencing described in plants

... localization allowed us to say which proteins are sitting on the DNA that give rise to the siRNAs and also the loci that are modified by the siRNAs," Pikaard said.

Scientists discover the molecular switch for nerve cells' insulating jelly rolls

... gene into the unmyelinated axons. Instead of just sitting on the axons, the Schwann cells now produced thick myelin sheaths around them. So it appears that the gene instructs the Schwann cells to build the myelin wrap. Dr. Salzer's group is investigating whether neuregulin has the same effect on myelinati...
