May 21, 2015 — Scientists have moved a step closer to identifying the nanostructure of cellulose -- the basic structural component of plant cell walls. The insights could pave the way for more disease resistant ... read more

Huntington's Disease Monkeys Display Progressive Clinical Changes and Neurodegeneration

May 12, 2015 — A preclinical, large animal model of Huntington's disease has been developed for assessing new therapeutics, which could ultimately provide better treatment options, possibly including altering ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Chaperones are molecular helpers that assist other proteins with folding. One such chaperone is the so-called heat shock protein 60 (Hsp60). This protein forms structures in mitochondria that ... read more

May 11, 2015 — An American undergraduate science program delves deeply into the bacteriophage genome, and publishes a paper with the second-highest number of authors in history, most of them ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Newly evolved genes can rapidly assume control over fundamental functions during early embryonic development. The findings suggest that evolutionary changes to the genetics of fundamental biological ... read more

May 8, 2015 — New research shows how a single growth factor receptor protein programs the entire genome. The study provides evidence that it all begins with a single "master" growth factor receptor that ... read more

May 8, 2015 — A new gene that enables plants to regulate their growth in different temperatures has been discovered by scientists. The researchers said the findings provided insights into how plants modulate their ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Researchers have developed artificial membranes with programmable features, enabling studies of cell communication and the molecular basis of disease. The new study demonstrates how researchers can ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Every inch of our body, inside and out, is oozing with bacteria. In fact, the human body carries 10 times the number of bacterial cells as human cells. Many are our friends, helping us digest food ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Generating offspring is the evolutionary goal of all living organisms. The multiplication of individual cells is coordinated by the cell cycle. Researchers have now identified the central switch for ... read more

Biologist Are Increasingly Becoming Data Scientists, Expert Says

May 6, 2015 — Biology is rapidly acquiring the character of a data science. Billions of data points on genes, proteins and other molecules are compiled in large files and systematically studied. This should lead ... read more

May 6, 2015 — Biologists have discovered a new microbe that represents a missing link in the evolution of complex life. The study provides a new understanding of how, billions of years ago, the complex cell types ... read more

May 6, 2015 — The surprising discovery and function of a new DNA modification in insects, worms, and algae has been described in a new article by an international team of ... read more

Building Scaffolds in the Cell's Power Stations

May 6, 2015 — A basic architectural principle of mitochondria has been revealed through new research. Researchers have decoded the molecular basis for the characteristic structures inside of mitochondria. ... read more

Researchers Put Magic Spin on Protein to Tease out Its First Dance With Tempo Set by Temperature

May 6, 2015 — All cells contain complex molecular components that fulfil functions necessary for the cell to live. These components require motion in a very particular order to function almost like an intricate ... read more

The Nucleus: Blueprints for the Construction of Nuclear Pores Deciphered

May 6, 2015 — New insights have been provided into how nuclear pores are constructed in the nuclear envelope. Nuclear pores regulate the exchange of macromolecules between the interior of the nucleus, where ... read more

Unexpected Role for Calcium in Controlling Inflammation During Chronic Lung Infection

May 4, 2015 — Many of us take a healthy immune system for granted. But for certain infants with rare, inherited mutations of certain genes, severe infection and death are stark consequences of their impaired ... read more

May 4, 2015 — Is there a sixth DNA base? A team of researchers suggests that the methyl-adenine that would regulate the expression of certain genes in eukaryotic cells could have a specific role in stem cells and ... read more
