Why do mutations in the proteins that make ribosomes cause bone marrow failure and anemia early in life, followed by elevated cancer risk in middle age? A new University of Maryland-led study suggests these disorders, called ribosomopathies, are caused by a sequence of mistakes at the molecular level. College Park, MD (PRWEB) March 31, 2014 Ribosomes are essential for life, generating all of the proteins required for cells to grow. Mutations in some of the proteins that make ribosomes...

Delivery Of Genomic Building Blocks Controlled By Enzyme
2014-03-07 10:14:25

University of Copenhagen Our DNA and its architecture are duplicated every time our cells divide. Histone proteins are key building blocks of this architecture and contain crucial information that regulates our genes. Danish researchers show how an enzyme controls reliable and high-speed delivery of histones to DNA copying hubs in our cells. This shuttling mechanism is crucial to maintain normal function of our genes and prevent disease. The results are published in the journal Nature...

Technological discovery Cells in our body are constantly dividing to maintain our body functions. At each division, our DNA code and a whole machinery of supporting components has to be faithfully duplicated to maintain the cell’s memory of its own identity. Researchers at BRIC, University of Copenhagen, have developed a new technology that has revealed the dynamic events of this duplication process and the secrets of cellular memory. The results are published in Nature Cell Biology....
