Penn researcher shows that DNA gets kinky easily at the nanoscale

... colleagues measured the energies required to make various bends in DNA at lengths of five to 50 nanometers --- about a thousand times smaller than the diameter of a typical human cell. ''We found that DNA has different apparent properties when probed at short lengths than the entire molecule does when tak...

Living view in animals shows how cells decide to make proteins

... how exons are erroneously included or excluded in various disease processes," Bonano said. For example, a cell’s decision to include exon IIIb is critical because the exon’s presence or absence determines which variant of the FGFR2 protein is produced, she said. Such subtle variations in proteins can al...

Chronic jet-lag conditions hasten death in aged mice

...t the young mice generally survived well under the various conditions. In contrast, the light-cycle shifts had a marked effect on the survivorship of the old mice. While 83% of old mice survived under the normal schedule, 68% survived under the backward-shift regimen and 47% survived under the forward-shift ...
