New U. of Colorado at Boulder flu chip may help combat future epidemics, pandemics

...ntains a specific sequence of "capture" DNA. Each spot is approximately one-hundredth of an inch in diameter. The microarray is then immersed in a wash of influenza gene fragments obtained from the fluid of an infected individual. RNA fragments from the infected fluid bind to specific DNA segments on ...

Discovering the first steps in transcription-coupled repair

...NAPII. The researchers learned that these proteins spot stalled RNAPII whether or not there is damage to DNA -- suggesting that a hitch in the transcription process, not necessarily involving damage to the DNA itself, is the cause of subsequent problems. "It appears that XPG is needed to help CSB recogni...

Nanoparticles, nanoshells, nanotubes: How tiny specks may provide powerful tools against cancer

...k might lead to nanotube-based biosensors that can spot circulating cancer cells in the blood from a new cancer or from a treated tumor that has returned. Balaji Panchapakesan, Ph.D., at the University of Delaware in Newark, and his co-workers coated the surface of microscopic carbon nanotubes with a m...

Dangerous tricksters: Some bacterie use immune cells to reproduce

...bes, and immune cells are quickly recruited to the spot to neutralise the intruder. Macrophages, cells whose job is to devour such intruders, are attracted by substances typical of bacteria, which surround the microbe like a cloud. As soon as the immune cells have detected the intruder, they cover the bac...

Restaurant seafood prices since 1850s help plot marine harvests through history

...he history of marine animal populations is a blind spot in human knowledge being filled by the combined efforts of historians, paleo-ecologists, and ecosystem modelers. Helping visualize the past, now almost unimaginable richness of the oceans could inspire and influence the way marine resources are manag...

MicroRNAs have shaped the evolution of the majority of mammalian genes

..."conserved," meaning that they show up in the same spot on the same gene across species as disparate as the mouse and the chicken. The authors of last January's Cell paper showed that thousands of human genes contain microRNA sites that are conserved in this way. To the extent that evolution has preserved...

Once considered to have the worst hunger in the country, Oregon has shown significant decreases in food insecurity and hunger since 1999-2001. "With this astonishing level of food deprivation in America," Brown concluded, ...

UT Southwestern researchers discover master switch in cell death

The life and death of cells is a complex avalanche of reactions, control...

North & South American researchers find architectural abnormalities in T. cruzi ribosome

...NA that the parasite's ribosomes must process. The spot where the ribosome binds to the mRNA, for example, is roughly as far away from the turret and spire as the length of the 39-nucleotide leader sequence. "It could provide a unique scanning mechanism different from other eukaryotes," Frank said. "For ...

UW-Madison scientists zero in on drugs' sweet spots

The ability to zero in on the sweet spot of drugs derived from natural products promises to help scientists specify the role of the sugar and make new drugs or enhance old ones to greater precision and effect. The series of experiments performed by Thorson's team, for example, may help rese...
