Carnegie Mellon University research reveals how cells process large genes

...ve splice sites may cause additional diseases, but until now we haven't looked for them." Knowledge of recursive splicing also will help investigators predict structures of genes that span large intervals of DNA, Lopez said. Recursive splicing relies on the unusual activity of a ratchetting point, a patt...

Beetle-inspired switch uses water for bonding

...ttacked, the palm beetle attaches itself to a leaf until the attacker leaves. It adheres with 120,000 droplets of secreted oil, each making a bridgelike contact between the beetle's feet and the leaf. Each droplet is just a few microns wide. Whereas the beetle controls the oil contacts mechanically, Steen'...

For first time, brain cells generated in a dish

..."We can basically take these cells and freeze them until we need them. Then we thaw them, begin a cell-generating process, and produce a ton of new neurons." If the discovery can translate to human applications, it will enhance efforts aimed at finding ways to use large numbers of a person's own cells to ...

Hybrid grass may prove to be valuable fuel source

...itrogen are transferred to the rhizome to be saved until the next growing season, he said. Burning Miscanthus produces only as much carbon dioxide as it removes from the air as it grows, said Heaton, who is seeking a doctorate in crop sciences. That balance means there is no net effect on atmospheric carb...

A novel method to measure circadian cycles

...otal as well as experimentally verified fact. But, until now, to systematically study circadian differences (and thereby hope to rout out the underlying genetic causes), scientists have had to rely on prolonged behavioural observation. To screen for and identify circadian rhythm variations in humans, the ...

Why do aneurysms form? New studies suggest leading role for white blood cells

...ay at smooth muscle cells in the wall of the aorta until it starts to fall apart." Researchers have found that AAAs appear to be associated with high levels of enzymes that are capable of doing that eating. But the question of how those enzymes get there, and what prompts them to arrive, has been unanswer...

Several minute intermediate stage in virus-cell fusion discovered; opportunity for drug development

...e it open a little bit but it keeps closing on you until there's enough pressure in the airlock to allow it to open all the way." Melikyan explained, "The pore is an unstable structure at that moment: some pores will open and some won't. It's a crucial point in viral entry because it's critical for the po...

Researchers discover how malaria parasite disperses from red blood cells
