Some molecules have unique and technologically useful optical properties; the medicinal properties of drugs depend on the direction of the twist; and within us — think of the double helix — twisted DNA can interact with different proteins. This twisting is called chirality and researchers at Case Western Reserve University have found they can use a...

A research team at the Hubrecht Institute, Utrecht, demonstrates a mechanism by which left—right asymmetry in the body is established and maintained. The study, published in the open-access journal PLoS Genetics on September 29, offers a new model of how families of genes interact to promote and direct body asymmetry. Although organisms appear bilaterally symmetrical when observed from the outside, internal organs are positioned asymmetrically along the left—right axis, and the...
