Sequencing efforts will be carried out by the five centers in the NHGRI-supported...

Climate change could doom Alaska's tundra

...ording to Bachelet, despite some of the criticisms aimed at them, climate models appear to work better and achieve higher accuracy over longer rather than shorter periods of time. "If you ask these models to predict exactly what the global climate will be in the summertime five years from now, that's...

Findings suggest need for new view of p53 cancer protein's interaction with DNA

...o this question is key to drug development efforts aimed at countering the effects of p53 mutations. Scientists thought that they had a good window on the p53 protein's interactions with DNA from structural studies that showed a single copy of the protein bound to DNA in a particular conformation. Now a te...

In a test of the new approach, the scientists sought to maximize the immune response to a truncated HIV gene called Gag and succeeded in dramatically stimulating the production of CD8+ T cells respon...

Access to DNA secrets yields better understanding of genes, possible tool for disease diagnosis

...A compaction. Such studies might lead to therapies aimed at activating beneficial genes, or turning off faulty ones. The researchers also will investigate whether certain compaction and expansion states might be indicative of cancer or other diseases. "Our current study describes the platform technology ne...

Bacterial protein recycling factor possible key to new class of antibiotics

...nces may help guide the design of new antibiotics aimed at inhibiting RRF-related steps of protein synthesis. "Every living organism has to have this last step, the recycling of spent protein synthesis machinery for the next round of translation," says Akira Kaji, PhD, Professor of Microbiology at Penn.
