Amount of mitochondrial DNA predicts frailty, mortality in humans

Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The amount of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) found in a person’s blood could be used to predict his or her overall risk of frailty and death from any cause 10 to 15 years before the first...

The GloFish is a patented and trademarked brand of genetically modified fluorescent fish. Various GloFish are currently on the market. Zebrafish were the first GloFish that were available within pet stores and are now sold in bright green, red, orange-yellow, blue, and purple fluorescent colors. Recently, Electric Green, Sunburst Orange, and Moonrise Pink colored tetra (Gymnocorymbus ternetzi) and Electric Green tiger barb (Puntius tetrazona) have been incorporated to the lineup. Although not...

Knockout Mouse
2013-10-02 11:52:01

A Knockout Mouse is a genetically engineered mouse in which researchers have inactivated, or “knocked out,” an existing gene by replacing it or disrupting it with an artificial piece of DNA. The loss of gene activity frequently causes changes in a mouse’s phenotype, which includes appearance, behavior, or other apparent and biochemical characteristics. Knockout mice are significant animal models for studying the role of genes which have been sequenced but whose functions haven’t...

Blue Rose
2013-10-02 08:33:40

A Blue Rose is a flower of the genus Rosa belonging to the family Rosaceae that presents blue to violet pigmentation instead of the more common white, red, or yellow coloration. Blue roses are frequently portrayed in literature and art as a symbol of love and prosperity to those who seek it, but don’t exist in nature as a result of genetic limitations. In 2004, researchers utilized genetic modification to produce roses that contain the blue pigment delphinidin. After 13 years of...

Brief Introduction To DNA Probes
2014-01-12 00:00:00

DNA probes help scientists to detect a specific gene in a long DNA sequence. According to Dr. Michael A. Pfaller, DNA probes are “single-stranded pieces of nucleic acid, labeled with a specific tracer (isotope, enzyme, or chromophore), that will hydrogen bond (hybridize) with complementary single-stranded pieces of DNA (or RNA) under the appropriate conditions of pH, temperature, and iconic strength.” The Foundation for Genomics and Population Health website has a helpful video about...

Caenorhabditis elegans
2014-01-12 00:00:00

Caenorhabditis elegans is a species of parasitic roundworm in the Nematoda phylum. It can be found in temperate regions, in many different areas of the world. It prefers to reside in nutrient rich soils. Its scientific name is derived from the Greek terms Caeno, meaning recent, rhabditis, meaning rod-like, and the Latin term elegans, which means elegant. It was first named by Maupas in 1900, but was not classified in the Caenorhabditis subgenus until 1952 by Osche. Caenorhabditis elegans...
