genome arms race
2014-09-29 13:07:13

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research from the University of California, Santa Cruz has revealed that two sets of primate genes have been battling it out over the millennia and this conflict has driven the complexity of primate genomes. Published on Sunday in the journal Nature, the study found that genome jumping "retrotransposons" are constantly developing new ways to escape repression by another set of genes called "repressors." "We have basically the...

Kim Bland, Ph.D., Stowers Institute for Medical Research Sea lamprey studies show remarkably conserved gene expression patterns in jawless versus jawed vertebrates If you never understood what “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny” meant in high school, don’t worry: biologists no longer think that an animal’s “ontogeny”, that is, its embryonic development, replays its entire evolutionary history. Instead, the new way to figure out how animals evolved is to compare regulatory...

Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The reason that girls are less likely than boys to suffer from autism may have something to do with the same sex hormone receptor responsible for helping protect them from stroke, according to new research published Tuesday in the journal Molecular Autism. In what is being called the first analysis of the role of estrogen in autism, experts from the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University examined the brains of people...

University of Minnesota Gene partnership may be fueling cancer spread in as much as 20 percent of cancers A key cancer-causing gene, responsible for up to 20 percent of cancers, may have a weak spot in its armor, according to new research from the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota. The partnership of MYC, a gene long linked to cancer, and a non-coding RNA, PVT1, could be the key to understanding how MYC fuels cancer cells. The research is published in the latest issue...
