Novel Toxin, and the First Ever Found, for Deadly Pathogen M. Tuberculosis

Aug. 3, 2015 — The first known toxin of the pathogenic bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis has been described by scientists. This necrotizing toxin is the founding member of a novel class of previously ... read more

May 1, 2015 — The CRISPR/Cas system, which is based on chemically synthesized small RNAs and commercially available Cas9 enzyme, has enabled long gene-cassette knock-in in mice with highest efficiency ever ... read more

Jan. 30, 2015 — HIV can lie dormant in infected cells for years, even decades. Scientists think unlocking the secrets of this viral reservoir may make it possible to cure, not just treat, HIV. Researchers have ... read more

Mapping the Maize Genome

Jan. 20, 2015 — Maize is one of the most important cereal crops in the world. The complete genome of maize has been sequenced, but its size and complexity presents a challenge to researchers seeking to identify ... read more

Unraveling Controls for Plant Root Growth

Jan. 6, 2015 — Green shoots are a sign of spring, but growing those shoots and roots is a complicated process. Now researchers have for the first time described part of the network of genetic controls that allows a ... read more

Nov. 6, 2014 — A team of scientists compared induced pluripotent stem cells and embryonic stem cells created using somatic cell nuclear transfer. They found that the cells derived from these two methods resulted in ... read more

Oct. 14, 2014 — Scientists have taken proteins from nerve cells and used them to create a 'smart' material that is extremely sensitive to its environment. The work could lead to new types of biological ... read more

Fine-Tuning of Bitter Taste Receptors May Be Key to Animal Survival

Oct. 8, 2014 — Chicken taste receptors are 'broadly tuned' for bitter taste, whereas six frog taste receptors are mixed, consisting of broadly as well as narrowly tuned receptors. In general, individual ... read more

Oct. 7, 2014 — It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. Scientists searching for the gene or gene combination that affects even one plant or animal characteristic must sort through massive amounts of data, ... read more

July 2, 2014 — Researchers have shown for the first time that stem cells created using different methods produce differing cells. The findings provide new insights into the basic biology of stem cells and could ... read more

June 23, 2014 — The JBEI GT Collection, the first glycosyltransferase clone collection specifically targeted for the study of plant cell wall biosynthesis, is expected to drive basic scientific understanding of GTs ... read more

May 30, 2014 — A young animal’s genes are not the only genes that determine its fate. The genetic identity of its caretakers matters too. Researchers suspect the interaction between the two can sway the fate of ... read more

May 12, 2014 — Researchers have discovered a new gene expression mechanism in porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome, or PRRS, virus -- an important swine pathogen that costs the U.S. pork industry more than ... read more

Apr. 22, 2014 — An international team of researchers has mapped the genetic profile of the rainbow trout, a versatile salmonid whose relatively recent genetic history opens a window into how vertebrates evolve. The ... read more

Apr. 13, 2014 — In a new study, researchers have taken the first steps toward creating a roadmap that may help scientists narrow down the genetic cause of numerous diseases. Their work also sheds new light on how ... read more

Experimental Drug Shows Promise for Treatment-Resistant Leukemias

Apr. 8, 2014 — Research in mice and human cell lines has identified an experimental compound dubbed TTT-3002 as potentially one of the most potent drugs available to block genetic mutations in cancer cells blamed ... read more

Potent HIV Antibody Research Has Opened Up Possibilities for HIV Prevention, Treatment

Mar. 3, 2014 — The discovery of how a KwaZulu-Natal woman’s body responded to her HIV infection by making potent antibodies (called broadly neutralizing antibodies, because they are able to kill multiple strains ... read more

Feb. 24, 2014 — The human genome contains approximately 20,000 protein coding genes which are responsible for the formation, development and functioning of the human body. A similar number of genes exists in the ... read more

Feb. 6, 2014 — One major challenge in stem cell research has been to reprogram differentiated cells to a totipotent state. Researchers have identified a duo of histone proteins that dramatically enhance the ... read more
