Like job-seekers searching for a new position, living things sometimes have to pick up a new skill if they are going to succeed. Researchers from the University of California, Davis, and Uppsala University, Sweden, have shown for the first time how living organisms do this. The observation, published Oct. 19 in the journal Science, closes an important gap in the theory of natural selection. Scientists have long wondered how living things evolve new functions from a limited set of genes....

The novel Natural Sciences Repository aims to provide reliable information on various areas of scientific interest and presents its content in the simplest words and terms possible. The site has now added the categories Acid Residues and Acid Sequence to its Acid section. The first new category contains scientific information on amino acid residues, which are a by-product of the peptide formation process whereas the second newly included category contains scientific information on Acid...

Tagish Lake Meteorites Help Solve Amino Acid Mysteries

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New clues have been unveiled that shed light on why living things use only molecules with specific orientations. Research analyzing meteorite fragments that fell on a frozen lake in Canada is providing strong evidence that liquid water inside an asteroid leads to a preference of left-handed over right-handed forms of common protein amino acids in meteorites. "Our analysis of the amino acids in meteorite fragments from Tagish Lake...

International collaboration puts molecular face on enzyme family that allows plants to adjust quickly to herbivore attack or changes in growing conditions Science has known about plant hormones since Charles Darwin experimented with plant shoots and showed that the shoots bend toward the light as long as their tips, which are secreting a growth hormone, aren´t cut off. But it is only recently that scientists have begun to put a molecular face on the biochemical systems that...

Researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, are working to develop substances that can prevent parasites, bacteria and fungi from producing essential proteins, research that could, in the long term, lead to new drugs for several major diseases. The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases — a type of enzyme — are important targets for the development of new drugs for several major diseases such as cancer, various parasitic diseases...

Salk scientists develop new technique for solving the structure of most popular targets for half of all drugs, potentially aiding discovery of new therapeutics A new method for rapidly solving the three-dimensional structures of a special group of proteins, known as integral membrane proteins, may speed drug discovery by providing scientists with precise targets for new therapies, according to a paper published May 20 in Nature Methods. The technique, developed by scientists at the Salk...
