Researchers find gene mutation that causes infertility in male mice

... resulting mice. They then analyzed the DNA of the sterile males and identified the allele that caused the infertility. While most studies on the genetics of fertility stem from analyses of mice that have had a custom gene "knockout," this is the first to reveal a dominant mutation that leads specifically to...

Genetic surprise confirms neglected 70-year-old evolutionary hypothesis

Scientists discover that ancient genes dictate flowering, fall bud set

...oing research to make genetically engineered trees sterile so that they cannot cross with wild trees -- used consecutive years of poplar clones to study the multi-year delay in flowering. The Science paper reports their discovery that the expression of the FT gene increases with age. "This gradual increase m...

EGF receptor activation prevents microbes from going more than skin deep

... found that AMPs were produced in human skin after sterile wounding of the skin surface, illustrating that exposure to invading microbes is not the sole trigger for the immune response in skin. The authors went on to show that AMP was produced through activation of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR...

Hybrid grass may prove to be valuable fuel source

...ource because of its high yields and because it is sterile and cannot become a weed, Heaton said.
