Study reveals enzyme that behaves like a 'quantum inchworm'

...o found that RecBC has a unique gait. Itsfront end completes its 23-rung advance, anchors itself tothe DNA, and then pulls its back end forward, separating theDNA behind it in a plowlike fashion. Because of this novelmechanism, the researchers dubbed RecBC the "quantuminchworm." "Overall, understanding this pr...

Spiders get better web sites by rising early

...ger time," says Rayor. But once the larger spider completes its web and settles into it, the threats to smaller spiders subside. "Inevitably some industrious, littler guys always start earlier. But when they do they get disrupted, and the overall web takes a lot longer to build than if they had just waited ...

As the light rays are reflected back through the internal optics and exit the eye, the wavefront analyzer measures and computes deviat...

St. Jude researchers decipher structure, activity of enzyme key to biochemical pathways of life

...structure to juggle four different molecules as it completes three different reactions. This rare ability of a single enzyme to carry out three different chemical reactions by itself is at the heart of the role E1 plays in modifying NEDD8, which is part of a family of proteins called ubiquitin-like proteins. ...

Small protein helps special RNA make repairs

... 'm' part of the tmRNA contains a stop codon which completes the unfinished translation so that the ribosome can release the protein. The 'm' part also sends a signal to the failed protein that it must be broken down. The 't' part of this problem solver differs from normal tRNA. Both tRNA and tmRNA are created...

Sequence of human chromosome 7 is fine-tuned and finished

"This work completes another volume in the genome encyclopedia at a high standard of quality and a high degree of continuity," says principal investigator Richard K. Wilson, Ph.D., director of Washington University's Genome Sequencing Center and professor of genetics and...

New 'knockout' map helps study gene functions in model plant

...de in the Arabidopsis genome. That advance nearly completes a key step in the 2010 project. But before the function of all Arabidopsis genes can be determined, a knockout mutant plant must be created for every single gene in the plant's genome. To create a gene knockout, scientists use a bacterium called ...

Genetic barrier to self-pollination identified

...n function in self-incompatibility. This discovery completes a critical missing link in the understanding of how self-incompatibility works. Ten years ago, Kao announced, in another paper published in Nature, the identification of the gene, called the S-RNase gene (S for self-incompatibility), that controls pi...

Casanova or caveman: Scientists isolate nerve cells that choreograph male fly's courtship behavior

...ep five) and copulation (step six). "A normal male completes the first three steps in about two minutes," Baker said. "That's followed by about two minutes of licking before he first attempts copulation." Copulation itself lasts another 20 minutes. "But when we interfere with the functioning of those 60 nerve ...

Images of 'tail' of protein needed for cell multiplication suggest anticancer drug targets

...inally, E2 transfers NEDD8 to the E3 enzyme, which completes the workshop's job by binding NEDD8 to Cul1. "This step-by-step process requires that all the molecules be brought together in a specific manner so the reactions can take place quickly," Schulman said. "That's where the E2 tail comes into play. The ...
