Latest recombination Stories
Research led by scientists at Iowa State University's Plant Sciences Institute has resulted in a process that will make genetic changes in plant genes much more efficient, practical and safe.
A team of Penn State scientists has shed light on the processes that lead to certain human DNA mutations that are implicated in hundreds of inherited diseases such as tuberous sclerosis and neurofibromatosis type 1.
Researchers have constructed a light-emitting transistor that has set a new record with a signal-processing modulation speed of 4.3 gigahertz, breaking the previous record of 1.7 gigahertz held by a light-emitting diode.
A new study published online in Nature Immunology ahead of the June 2009 print issue has found that homologous immunoglobulin (lg) alleles pair up in the nucleus at stages that coincide with V(D)J recombination of the heavy and light chain (Igh and Igk) loci.
Substantial advances for applications of nanocrystals in the fields requiring a continuous output of photons and high quantum efficiency may soon be realized due to discovery of non-blinking semiconductor nanocrystals.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and world-leading gene-synthesis company DNA2.0 have taken an important step toward the development of a cost-efficient process to extract sugars from cellulose--the world's most abundant organic material and cheapest form of solar-energy storage. Plant sugars are easily converted into a variety of renewable fuels such as ethanol or butanol.
It sounds like a science fiction movie: A killer contagion threatens the Earth, but scientists save the day with a designer drug that forces the virus to mutate itself out of existence.
By Courts, Cornelius Montesinos-Rongen, Manuel; Brunn, Anna; Bug, Stefanie; Siemer, Dorte; Hans, Volkmar; Blumcke, Ingmar; Klapper, Wolfram; Schaller, Carlo; Wiestler, Otmar D; Kuppers, Ralf; Siebert, Reiner; Deckert, Martina Abstract Primary lymphomas of the CNS (PCNSLs) show molecular features of the late germinal center exit B-cell phenotype and are impaired in their terminal differentiation as indicated by a lack of immunoglobulin class switching.
By Anonymous UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, San Diego electrical engineers have created experimental solar cells spiked with nanowires that could lead to highly efficient thin-film solar cells of the future.
How and where viral strains of HIV swap DNA may be determined by the immune response against the original infecting strain, U.S. researchers said.
