Baumann Lab defines proteins that distinguish chromosome ends from DNA double-strand breaks

...f telomeric ends," said Dr. Bae. "Instead, a short tandem array of telomeric repeats bound by a Rap1/Trf2 complex is sufficient to impede non-homologous end joining in a highly directional manner." It has long been understood that chromosome ends are distinct from DNA double-strand breaks and that the ce...

Protein fragments sequenced in 68 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex

...their amino acid sequence. Using this two-step, or tandem (MS/MS), procedure, Asara netted seven separate strings of amino acid. He now faced his second challenge, namely, to interpret the amino acid sequences. Normally, when a sequence comes out of a mass spectrometer, it is compared to a database of ex...

Statin plus cancer drug deliver combo punch to brain cancer cells

...ed that Bcl-2 and hedgehog expression increased in tandem in medulloblastoma cells, they tried adding hedgehog-blocking cyclopamine to the cells and found that Bcl-2 production dwindled and tumor cells died off. Lead author and pathology fellow Eli E. Bar, Ph.D., said he was "surprised by the degree to ...

Speeding 'fingertip' discovery -- 20 years of protein info in 1 place

...y’s team used electron transfer dissociation (ETD) tandem mass spectrometry, a technology that breaks apart proteins into small fragments, separates them by size and identifies the fragments based on their mass - their size and weight. The process improves on previous techniques by breaking up proteins more...

Tandem transcripts team together

...chers identified six TIC events (involving 3.6% of tandem gene pairs), only one of which was identified during the whole-genome survey. This indicates that future investigations of specific regions may reveal a greater prevalence of TIC events genome-wide. Sorek's team unraveled an interesting gene fusion...

World Trade Center identifications pushed forensic DNA technology

...labs across the country generally used STRs ?short tandem repeats ?in forensics work. STRs are biological markers in nuclear DNA that are inherited from both parents and vary widely among people. The Combined DNA Index System ?CODIS ?used by the FBI, uses 13 of these markers for identification purposes. ...

First demonstration of 'teaching' in non-human animals

...and thus qualifies as teaching. At the start of a tandem run, the leader finds a naïve individual who is willing to follow her. But tandem runs are rather slow because the follower frequently pauses to look round for landmarks so that it c...

Protein 'nanosprings' most resilient found in nature

...al Science Foundation. Ankyrin repeats consist of tandem modules of about 33 amino acids, the researchers said. Found in a large number of functionally diverse proteins in organisms ranging from plants to humans, ankyrin repeats are one of the most common protein-protein interaction motifs in nature. Anky...

Curry and cauliflower could halt prostate cancer

...h of cancerous tumors. Using PEITC and curcumin in tandem produced even stronger effects. The group went on to evaluate the therapeutic potential of curcumin and PEITC in mice with well-established tumors, and the results showed that PEITC or curcumin alone had little effect, whereas the combination of cur...

New DNA 'fingerprinting' technique separates hemp from marijuana

...rs have found that genetic markers known as "short tandem repeats," which are used to identify individuals in paternity and criminal cases, lack the power to distinguish Cannabis cultivars unequivocally. In tests with three different cultivars of hemp and one of marijuana, the DNA fingerprints of all the...

Plants give pests sock in the gut

Pair of cancer genes found to drive both cell migration and division

...movement." In normal cells, the two genes work in tandem to regulate a molecule called PIP3, which helps the cell decide where to push outward - PI3K makes PIP3 on the membrane on one side of a cell while PTEN breaks it down on the other side. But when both enzymes are missing, levels of PIP3 remain consta...
