Researchers from the California and Florida campuses of The Scripps Research Institute have discovered the biological origins of the closed circulation system of vertebrates. Closed circulation systems are complex and take generations, possibly billions of years to develop. A recent press release notes: “During this lengthy process, new domains (parts of a protein that can evolve and function independently of each other) have been added progressively to key molecules.” In...

Salmonella cells have hijacked the protein-building process to maintain their ability to cause illness, new research suggests. Scientists say that these bacteria have modified what has long been considered typical cell behavior by using a beta form of an amino acid "“ as opposed to an alpha form "“ during the act of making proteins. Beta versions of amino acids occur in nature under rare and specific circumstances, but have never been observed as part of protein synthesis. Before...
