New book expands biological classifications to account for 'alien' life

...u wouldn't have dinosaurs on the tree of life. And until now there hasn't been any place to put RNA life." In the current popular classification system the highest levels are three domains ?bacteria, archaea and eukarya, the last of which includes all animals. Ward's plan places those three domains within...

Stolen gene allows insect virus to enter cells

...ed. Indeed, they found that the f gene stays quiet until the third and final stage of a maggot's development, then begins to produce F proteins, which persist into adulthood. "f seems to be developmentally regulated, like a lot of Drosophila genes," says Blissard. Exactly what role the F protein plays in f...

A 'dimmer switch' for genes

... previously had been shown to build up on proteins until a certain number accumulated. The result, according to the study, has been described in the past as a sharp on-off switch of protein activity. "What we found was that each time we added a phosphate to a particular unstructured region of Ets-1, there...

Purdue researchers find key to rice blast fungus

... an appressorium. This bubble-like structure grows until it has so much pressure inside that it blasts through the plant's surface. "The penetration structure has enormous force, called turgor pressure, that is 40 times the pressure found in a bicycle tire," Xu said. "It's like driving nails through the p...

Preventing a pandemic: Study suggests strategies for containing a flu outbreak

The danger of avian flu is that the virus could develop into a new strain that could be transmitted among humans. The virus might mutate, or it might jump over to a human already infected with the...

With the help of the ESRF, scientists have been able to identify the missing state, which is particularly important because it is directly involved in the molecular oxygen formation. They suggest, furthermore, an extension of the "Kok cycle...

Stem borers destroy up to 12 per cent of maize growing in Kenya, amounting to US$76 million in lost harvests per year. The IRMA project, which began six years ago, aims to develop both conventional ...
