Latest recombination Stories
DNA's role as the master blueprint of the cell means that even small sequence changes can have catastrophic consequences.
The autoimmune disease type 1 diabetes (T1D), also known as juvenile diabetes, is diagnosed in approximately 70,000 children worldwide per year.
REYKJAVIK, Iceland, October 27, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Scientists from deCODE genetics today publish in Nature the highest resolution recombination map of the human genome yet developed.
A team of investigators led by a physician-scientist at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has shown for the first time that the small protein SUMO can team up with the replication protein A (RPA) complex to facilitate DNA repair.
VIENNA, Austria, December 7 /PRNewswire/ -- EUCODIS Bioscience, a company developing, customizing, manufacturing, and marketing enzymes for the chemical industry, announced today that it has appointed Mr Thomas Fischer, currently CFO, as new CEO of the Company.
A protein that plays a key role in copying DNA also plays a vital role in repairing breaks in it, UC Davis scientists have found.
Meiosis â€“ the pairing and recombination of chromosomes, followed by segregation of half to each egg or sperm cell â€“ is a major crossroads in all organisms reproducing sexually.
Researchers report that a single-stranded DNA-binding protein (SSB), once thought to be a static player among the many molecules that interact with DNA, actually moves back and forth along single-stranded DNA, gradually allowing other proteins to repair, recombine or replicate the strands.
The unique mechanism behind the evolutionary survival of the human Y chromosome may also be responsible for a range of sex disorders, from failed sperm production to sex reversal to Turner Syndrome.
As the body creates antibodies to fight invaders, a three-protein DNA repair complex called MRN is crucial for a normal gene-shuffling process to proceed properly, University of Michigan research shows.
