Latest Messenger RNA Stories
Scientists have now identified a molecular master switch that catalyzes these cells' transition to mature, myelin-making mavens.
One of the difficulties of fighting cancer is that drugs often hit other non-cancerous cells, causing patients to get sick.
Biologists at the University of Pennsylvania studying oocytes in mice, the immature egg cells necessary for sexual reproduction, have demonstrated an unusual behavior in microRNA, or miRNA, activity that may be the first event in reprogramming the differentiated oocyte into pluripotent blastomeres of the embryo.
Johns Hopkins scientists believe they may have figured out how genetic snippets called microRNAs are able to shut down the production of some proteins.
Regulating protein levels is key to biomedical research in humans and model organisms.
EMBL scientists are the first to visualize the mechanism responsible for oskar mRNA transport.
Pateamine A (PatA), a natural product first isolated from marine sponges, has attracted considerable attention as a potential anti-cancer agent, and now a new activity has been found for it, which may reveal yet another anti-cancer mechanism.
Ever since the previously unknown SARS virus emerged from southern China in 2003, University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston virologists have focused on finding the source of the pathogen's virulence â€” its ability to cause disease.
Fragile X tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) is a recently recognized condition, which is actually one of the most prevalent heritable neurodegenerative diseases.
A study from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has identified a key player in a molecular process essential for DNA replication within cells.
