Twelve years ago, UNC School of Medicine researcher Brian Strahl, PhD, found that a protein called Set2 plays a role in how yeast genes are expressed – specifically how DNA gets transcribed into messenger RNA.

Male Fertility Relies On A Key Protein That Also Protects Against Disease
2014-05-13 10:58:14

Male infertility prevents many couples from being able to conceive a child and a new study published in the journal Nature Communications has found a specific protein that is a major determining factor in determining a sperm’s ability to fertilize an egg.

Delivery Of Genomic Building Blocks Controlled By Enzyme

At a glance, DNA is a rather simple sequence of A, G, C, T bases, but once it is packaged by histone proteins into an amalgam called chromatin, a more complex picture emerges.

Physical Reason For Shape Of Metaphase Chromosome Discovered
2014-01-15 07:37:00

Why do metaphase chromosomes have their characteristic elongated cylindrical shape? The proposed solution is consistent with the structure of metaphase chromatin and with the nanomechanical properties of chromatin and chromosomes.
