Exact Pol(e) Position -- Precisely Where the Polymerase Is Changed

Jan. 21, 2016 — A method for the thorough analysis of protein modifications has been developed by researchers who have mapped the phosphorylation sites of the RNA polymerase II enzyme, which is responsible for ... read more

Neils Help Removing Epigenetic Marks

Jan. 12, 2016 — Two proteins have been identified that are important for the demethylation of DNA, report ... read more

Jan. 11, 2016 — A new single-cell genomics protocol allows researchers to study links between DNA modifications (methylation) and the activity of a gene. The method is the first to enable parallel profiling of the ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — From 1952, DNA was sequenced, modified and extensively studied, but no technique was able to produce clear direct images of DNA. Now, researchers have developed a new technique to produce a direct ... read more

Effect of Environmental Epigenetics on Disease, Evolution

Aug. 3, 2015 — Environmental factors are having an underappreciated effect on the course of disease and evolution by prompting genetic mutations through epigenetics, a process by which genes are turned on and off ... read more

Cell Aging Slowed by Putting Brakes on Noisy Transcription

July 30, 2015 — Working with yeast and worms, researchers found that incorrect gene expression is a hallmark of aged cells and that reducing such “noise” extends lifespan in these ... read more

Scientists Develop New Technique for Analyzing Epigenetics of Bacteria

June 15, 2015 — There is a potential new tool to combat pathogens and overcome antibiotic resistance. Scientists have developed a new technique to more precisely analyze bacterial populations, to reveal epigenetic ... read more

June 4, 2015 — In many animal species, the chromosomes differ between the sexes. The male has a Y chromosome. In some animals, however, for example birds, it is the other way round. In birds, the females have their ... read more

June 3, 2015 — Using the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana as a model for their research, scientists have been trying to understand how organisms 'remember' past events at the cellular ... read more

How DNA Is Organized in Our Cells

May 26, 2015 — A critical role for two proteins in chromatin structure has been uncovered by researchers. Their breakthrough helps explain how DNA is organized in our cells. This discovery could lead to a better ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Cell division is the basis of life and requires that each daughter cell receive the proper complement of chromosomes. In most organisms, this process is mediated at the familiar constricted ... 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

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

Parallel Sequencing of DNA and RNA Provides Insight Into Secret World of Cells

Apr. 27, 2015 — Researchers have developed a large-scale sequencing technique called Genome and Transcriptome Sequencing (G&T-seq) that reveals, simultaneously, the unique genome sequence of a single cell and ... read more

Old Cancer Drug Could Have New Use in Fighting Cancer

Apr. 1, 2015 — An old cancer drug can not only kill cancer cells, but also works to change how certain cancer cells function, weakening those cells so they can be killed by other drugs, a veterinary researcher has ... read more

Recycling Histones Through Transcription

Mar. 26, 2015 — Cells reuse a part of the histones which are used to pack DNA, according to research conducted on yeast cells. However, researchers say that it is likely that similar mechanisms are important for ... read more

Mar. 11, 2015 — Until now scientists have believed that the variations in traits -- such as our height, skin color, tendency to gain weight or not, intelligence, tendency to develop certain diseases, etc., all of ... read more

Epigenetic Breakthrough: A First of Its Kind Tool to Study the Histone Code

Feb. 10, 2015 — Scientists have created a new research tool, based on the fruit fly, to help crack the histone code. This research tool can be used to better understand the function of histone proteins, which play ... read more

Understanding Cellular Aging

Jan. 29, 2015 — The physical structure of the nuclear landscape has been mapped in unprecedented detail to understand changes in genomic interactions occurring in cell senescence and ... read more

Effects of Poor Eating Habits Persist Even After Diet Is Improved

Nov. 3, 2014 — Scientists use mice to show that even after successful treatment of atherosclerosis, including lowering of blood cholesterol and a change in dietary habits, the effects of an unhealthy lifestyle ... read more
