Scientists devise way to measure RNA synthesis on the fly in a live cell

...molecules within a living cell," Cluzel said. The techniques previously used to study RNA required killing and breaking up a cell in order to extract an RNA molecule. With those techniques, "one cannot detect in real time the underlying dynamics of RNA synthesis associated with cellular activities," he said. B...

Mass production of human papillomavirus could lead to gains against cervical cancer

... the virus, said Ahlquist. "The available culture techniques limited the ability to study critical early stages of infection," said Ahlquist. "We couldn't pursue a number of experimental approaches because of the small amounts of virus available," he said. "Also, we were restricted in genetically manipulating ...

New technique rapidly detects illness-causing bacteria

...y 35 minutes, while traditional gene amplification techniques may take many hours. Promising early results suggest the sensitive method could detect fewer than 100 cells of a pathogen in just half an hour. Nugen's software also compares a target site with sequences from other organisms to make sure they don'...

This functional genomics research is a collaborative effort spanning several departments in the College of Natural Science, including the departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Plant Biology...

HIV Therapy Greatly Extends Life of Key T Cells, Scientists Find

...ar, note the scientists. Using two relatively new techniques for labeling cells, the team demonstrated that IL-2 therapy can lead to greatly increased numbers of new CD4+ cells. “More remarkable than the proliferation of these cells was how long they lived,?says Dr. Kovacs. The average lifespan of CD4+ cells i...

Nanowires can detect molecular signs of cancer, scientists find

...are will ultimately depend upon the development of techniques that allow rapid detection of many markers with high selectivity and sensitivity. "Genomics and proteomics research has elucidated many new biomarkers that have the potential to greatly improve disease diagnosis," the scientists write. "The availabi...

Rensselaer researchers develop approach that predicts protein separation behavior

...roteins in chromatographic columns. Chromatography techniques are used to identify and purify molecules, in this case, particular proteins. "We intend to test the model against more complicated protein structures as part of its further development," said Breneman. "The outcome of this work will yield fundament...

Using RNAi techniques workers at the University of Bath have shown that several different proteins can confer this protective effect against subsequent infections. Micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi and nematodes are often used as biocontrol agents against insects. ...

Secret sex life of killer fungus?

...a Rydholm (Duke University, USA), used a number of techniques to study the fungus. The genome of Aspergillus fumigatus has recently been sequenced, and investigation of the genome revealed the presence of a series of genes required for sexual reproduction. In the new study, the researchers report that the anal...

New tools used to control foodborne hepatitis A outbreaks related to green onions

... Amon and colleagues credited the viral sequencing techniques with helping them to identify the relationships between the outbreaks in four separate locations, and to define the scope of the outbreaks quickly. The sequencing allowed them to determine if cases reported in other states were related to the four or...
