Gene Enhancers Play Major Role In Making Our Faces Unique
2013-10-25 07:52:51

What makes facial morphology so distinct? Genetics obviously plays a major role, as is evident in the similarities between parents and children. But scientists are now studying how DNA fine-tunes genetics so that siblings, especially identical twins, resemble one another yet look different from unrelated individuals.

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have developed a new way to parse and understand how special proteins called "master regulators" read the genome, and consequently turn genes on and off.

Albert Erives, associate professor in the University of Iowa Department of Biology, and his graduate student, Justin Crocker, currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Janelia Farm Research Campus, have conducted a study that reveals important and useful insights into how and why developmental genes often take inputs from two independent “morphogen concentration gradients.”

Long segments of RNA— encoded in our DNA but not translated into protein—are key to physically manipulating DNA in order to activate certain genes, say researchers at The Wistar Institute.

Study Suggests Stem Cells Strive For Early Maturity
2012-12-28 09:16:04

Scientists recently completed a study that shows the possibility that stem cells work towards maturity at an earlier stage than originally thought.

Florida based DNA Sports Performance Lab formulates a naturally derived (caffeine and chemical free), sublingual bio-identical energy enhancer that will significantly boost energy levels, increase

Fruit Fly Studies Guide Researchers To Misregulated Mechanism In Human Cancers
2012-11-19 15:21:04

Changes in how DNA interacts with histones—the proteins that package DNA—regulate many fundamental cell activities from stem cells maturing into a specific body cell type or blood cells becoming leukemic.

Humans And Primates Share DNA But Genes Work Differently
2012-11-08 08:43:59

Our primate cousins share over 90% of our DNA, but the expression or activity patterns of genes differ across species in ways that explain the distinct biology and behavior of each species.


Word of the Day
edulcoration
  • The act of sweetening by admixture of some saccharine substance.
The word 'edulcoration' comes from a Latin word meaning 'making sweet'.
