Neural bottleneck found that thwarts multi-tasking

Many people think they can safely drive while talking on their cell phones. Vanderbilt neuroscientists Paul E. Dux and René Marois have found that when it comes to handling two things at once, your brain, while fast, isn't that fast. "Why is it that with our incredibly complex and sophisticated...

Gene thwarts some pathogens, gives access to others, could save crops

A single gene apparently thwarts a disease-causing invader that creates a fuzzy gray coating on flowers, fruits and vegetables. But the same gene provides access to a different type of pathogen. A Purdue University plant molecular biologist and his collaborators in Austria and North Carolina iden...

Biologists discover link between CGG repeats in DNA and neurological disorders

...oken during cell divisions. Scientists at Tufts University have found that one such DNA repeat not only stalls the cell's replication process but also thwarts the cell's capacity to repair and restart it. The researchers focused on this CGG repeat because it is associated with hereditary neurological disorde...

St. Jude study gives new insights into how cells accessorize their proteins

..., once NEDD8 attaches to cullin-RING, it activates the enzyme to attach ubiquitin to its target protein. In this activation process NEDD8 also somehow thwarts the action of another molecule called CAND1, which normally inhibits cullin-RING.
