Latest Peptide nucleic acid Stories
SUWON, South Korea, Oct.
Before DNA became the Earth's primary genetic material over 3.5 million years ago, scientists believe forms of life used RNA to encode genetic instructions. What came before RNA, though?
A team of Scripps Research scientists has created a new analog to DNA that assembles and disassembles itself without the need for enzymes.
WOBURN, Mass., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- AdvanDx today announced that a new medical study demonstrated use of AdvanDx's PNA FISH(TM) test reduced mortality by 42% for patients with highly drug resistant Hospital-Acquired Enterococcus faecium bloodstream infections (BSI's).
For the first time, a team of investigators at Carnegie Mellon University has shown that the binding of metal ions can mediate the formation of peptide nucleic acid (PNA) duplexes from single strands of PNA that are only partly complementary. This result opens new opportunities to create functional, three-dimensional nanosize structures such as molecular-scale electronic circuits, which could reduce by thousands of times the size of today's common electronic devices. The research results will...
