At crucial points in the metabolism of all organisms, a protein with the unwieldy name of Translation Elongation Factor P (EF-P, for short) takes center stage. What it actually does during protein synthesis has only now been elucidated — by researchers at LMU. The research group led by Kirsten Jung, Professor of Microbiology at LMU, actually focused on how bacteria cope with stress, for example how the receptor meolecule CadC monitors the acidity in the environment and alerts the...

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....

Tagish Lake Meteorites Help Solve Amino Acid Mysteries
2012-07-26 14:48:28

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...
