Need to pull an all-nighter?

...surprise in the research was that the main message telling the brain to go to sleep probably does not come from neurons, but from neighboring glial cells, which appear to produce the greatest amounts of nitric oxide. Until recently, glial cells have been assumed to play only a supportive role in the brain. R...

From a lowly yeast, researchers divine a clue to human disease

... Normally, Sen1 acts like a molecular stop sign, telling another protein called RNA polymerase II when to stop transcribing genetic information from DNA into related threads of RNA. The polymerase reads along DNA strands, building RNA as it goes. Multiple genes strung along a single length of DNA are sep...

New research to cut animal testing

...developed at Gentronix has proven very reliable at telling us whether a drug will cause cancer but some chemicals, called promutagens, only become carcinogenic once they have passed through the body's liver. "This grant will help us develop new non-animal experiments to identify these other toxic compound...

A giant among minnows: Giant danio can keep growing

When it comes to gene transcription, random pauses aren’t quite so random, study finds
