Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have unveiled a profound biological process that explains how DNA can be damaged during genome replication. In addition, the scientists developed a new analytical tool to measure the cell's response to chemotherapy, which could have an important impact on future cancer therapy. The results are now published in the scientific journal Cell. An international team of researchers led by Professor Jiri Lukas from the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for...

PrimPol allows cells to make copies of their DNA even when it is damaged, and prevents breaks in the chromosomes Every day, the human body produces new cells to regenerate tissues and repair those that have suffered injury. Each time this happens, the cells make copies of their DNA that they will pass on to the resulting daughter cells. This process of copying the DNA, also called replication, is very delicate, given that it can generate severe alterations in the DNA that are associated...

A rudimentary form of life that is found in some of the harshest environments on earth is able to sidestep normal replication processes and reproduce by the back door, researchers at The University of Nottingham have found. The study, published in the journal Nature, centers on Haloferax volcanii — part of a family of single-celled organisms called archaea that until recently were thought to be a type of bacteria. The findings, led by scientists from the University's School of Life...

TA-65, a natural supplement, improves many aspects of aging in humans. A new survey conducted by researchers from Age Reverse reveals the self-reported benefits of these longevity pills in 246 participants. New York, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2013 Studies have linked aging to the shortening of telomeres at the end of chromosomes. A longer telomere length ensures the accurate replication of DNA and maintenance of cellular health. It is believed that the degradation of telomeres causes a stage...

Researchers at Michigan State University use TACC supercomputers to understand DNA bending and repair mechanisms The biological information that makes us unique is encoded in our DNA. DNA damage is a natural biological occurrence that happens every time cells divide and multiply. External factors such as overexposure to sunlight can also damage DNA. Understanding how the human body recognizes damaged DNA and initiates repair fascinates Michael Feig, professor of biochemistry and...
