Researchers determine genetic cause of Timothy syndrome

... According to Keating, discovery of the genetic basis of Timothy syndrome has implications for understanding the function and importance of calcium channels in general. "Our findings showed that the mutated region is required for inactivation of the channel, which was not previously appreciated," he sai...

...or author on the paper. Chang established the basis of this research in a previous publication with an intentionally simplified model that ignored such complexities as geography and migration. Those precise mathematical results showed that in a world obeying the simplified assumptions, the most recent...

Genetic differences might help distinguish thyroid cancers

... genetic changes in thyroid cancer cells, form the basis for a valuable diagnostic tool, says Eng, a recipient of the Doris Duke Distinguished Clinical Scientist Award. "Our work begins to elucidate the fundamental differences and similarities between these two types of thyroid cancer, which shoul...

Brown research reveals key insight into memory-making

...urs, even days, and is believed to be the cellular basis for memory. AMPA receptors on the membrane of the information-receiving neuron, known as the postsynaptic cell, act like gates, opening in response to chemical messages from a neighboring neuron. During LTP, extra AMPA receptors appear, increasing sy...

Poplar DNA code cracked -- a step in combating global warming?

... will identify the genes in the poplar DNA. On the basis of mathematical algorithms, the researchers predict that the poplar has around 50,000 genes, and they anticipate that about 10,000 of them are not found in Arabidopsis and are therefore possibly 'tree-specific'. A variety of applications With the ...
