Marine bacterium suspected to play role in global carbon and nitrogen cycles

...been associated with extreme environments like hot springs and deep-sea vents, but about a decade ago molecular studies proved their abundance in more common environs including the open ocean, freshwater and soil. Subsequent efforts to grow various samples of these organisms led to this cultivation of N. ma...

Poison + water = hydrogen. New microbial genome shows how

...find out, the researchers are dipping into the hot springs of Yellowstone, Russia, and other far-flung locales, to isolate and decipher the genomes of microbes found there. "What we want to have is a field guide for these microbes, like those available for birds and mammals," Eisen says. "Right now, we can...

Hot-spring bacteria flip a metabolic switch

...thetic bacteria living in scalding Yellowstone hot springs have two radically different metabolic identities. As the sun goes down, these cells quit their day job of photosynthesis and unexpectedly begin to fix nitrogen, converting nitrogen gas (N2) into compounds that are useful for cell growth. The study,...

...erium, or a bacterial component, the immune system springs into action. One such component of the bacterial cell wall is LPS. The binding of LPS with its specific receptor in our immune system − TLR4 − initiates a long series of reactions that bring on an inflammation, which eliminates the bacter...

Experimental RNA-based drug kills prostate cancer cells effectively and safely

...tricks its way into prostate cancer cells and then springs into action to destroy them, while leaving normal cells unarmed. The drug, developed at Duke University Medical Center, uses one type of genetic material, called targeting RNA, to enter cancer cells, and another type, called silencing RNA, to stop ...
