Secret Code Discovered In Human DNA
2013-12-13 05:26:03

[ Watch the Video: Human DNA Has Been Hiding A Secret ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A newly discovered ‘second code’ hiding within our DNA is casting new light on how changes to DNA impact health and disease, according to a study published Friday in the journal Science. The new code is changing the way scientists read and interpret genetic instructions and mutations. Since the genetic code was deciphered in the 1960s, scientists have assumed it...

Umea University For the first time, researchers at Umeå University have succeeded in showing how the DNA polymerase epsilon enzyme builds new genomes. The detailed image produced by these researchers shows how mutations that can contribute to the development of colorectal cancer and cervical cancer lead to changes in the structure of the protein. This study will be published in the journal Nature Structural and Molecular Biology. Genomes are built from pairs of long strands of DNA. In...

The kinds of traits that show genealogical relationships between species are often minute and easily overlooked. Dr. Neil Snow, a botanist at Pittsburg State University, published a paper in 1996 that included observations of some odd-shaped hairs on three species of grass native to Africa. Their odd shape stems from distinctly swollen tips that are then pinched into a small party-hat structure at the very apex. "A tongue-twisting technical term for that shape is 'clavicorniculate', but...

Researchers find nanostructures made of DNA strands can encapsulate, release small-molecule drugs Nanoscale "cages" made from strands of DNA can encapsulate small-molecule drugs and release them in response to a specific stimulus, McGill University researchers report in a new study. The research, published online Sept. 1 in Nature Chemistry, marks a step toward the use of biological nanostructures to deliver drugs to diseased cells in patients. The findings could also open up new...

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...
