Unexpressed But Indispensable -- The DNA Sequences That Control Development

...erved between them are likely to be fundamental to vertebrate development. Through sequence alignment with increasingly strict criteria, they identified 1,373 highly conserved non-coding elements (CNEs), with an average length of about 200 base pairs. The average sequence match is 84%: not perfect, but much hig...

Seismic sensitivity also has been observed in elephant seals--huge marine mammals not related to elephants. But O'Connell-Rodwell was the first to suggest that a large land animal ...

Biochemists report discovery of structure of major piece of telomerase; implications for cancer

...s of RNA come together to form a triple helix. All vertebrate animals investigated so far have nearly the identical sequence of nucleotides through the triple helix, Theimer said. "The triple helical structure of the pseudoknot must be significant since it is conserved from humans to marsupials, birds and marin...

Undesirable expatriates: Preventing the spread of invasive animals

...uctions may become more common. The bottom line-- vertebrate animals have a high rate of invasion success. Once established, they can act as biological pollutants that result in ecological and economic damages. "The best way to combat invasive species is to prevent them from being introduced. As global trade i...

Micro-molecule plays big role in birth defects

...first-ever picture of how limbs would develop in a vertebrate without the help of microRNAs. When microRNAs were not available to turn off certain genes, the mice grew malformed, nonfunctional limbs. The finding may provide insight into human birth defects, but scientists say its greater value will be as a new...

Gap-climbing fruit flies reveal components of goal-driven behaviors

...rams employed by the flies show high similarity to vertebrate motor programs--for example, when a person is trying to reach a jar on a shelf high above her head, she will reach out with her arm and hand, will straighten her back, and tiptoe.
