Biological Markers In Chromosomes Predict The Common Cold
2013-02-20 10:41:51

Scientists from Carnegie Mellon University have recently discovered that our susceptibility to infections and our future health may be foretold by chromosome tips, known as telomeres. These chromosome tips are special DNA sequences that prevent DNA in chromosomes from unraveling.

New York University biologists have identified how a vital protein is loaded by others into the centromere, the part of the chromosome that plays a significant role in cell division.

Researchers from the University of East Anglia in the UK have found a link between biological age, longevity and an individual’s chromosomes in a bird known as the Seychelles Warbler.

Wandering Mind Linked To Telomere Length

While previous research has suggested that individuals with wandering minds could be exhibiting signs of unhappiness, a new study shows that the inability to focus on a task at hand could be linked to aging.

A team of researchers at Kaiser Permanente and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) has identified a significant relationship between mortality and the length of telomeres, the stretches of DNA that protect the ends of chromosomes.

Scientists at the Stowers Institute of Medical Research have developed an innovative method to count the number of fluorescent molecules in a cluster and then applied the novel approach to settle a debate rampant among cell biologists—namely, how DNA twists into a unique chromosomal structure called the centromere.
