Millenium bug found by CSIRO scientists
...an interesting adaptation of the tarsi (feet) that enables
them to 'glide' across the surface of the water without breaking the surface tension." "The study of the Millennium Bug and its relatives is part of a much larger project that involves the study and identification of thousands of specimens from the ...

those membrane proteins to bind to a class of so-called PDZ proteins which act to target the membran...
Drosophila genome sequence completed
...nome project really comes into play," he says. "It enables
us to know all the genes so we can look at all of them at once and see what they1re doing. " Tak Mak, for instance, director of the Amgen Institute at the University of Toronto, says he has been working to understand the signal transduction pathwa...
First awards made in NIH effort to understand how genes affect people's responses to medicines
...and molecular biology, and genetics. This support enables
scientists at universities, medical schools, and research institutions throughout the country to expand knowledge about the fundamental life processes that underlie human health and disease....
Researchers find key to growing, differentiating human cells
... Ma said the reason why clumping enables
cells to differentiate is still a biological mystery. He thinks other factors, such as chemical communication between cells, may prompt the cells to differentiate. Kniss...
UNC-CH bus brings mobile lab, high-tech science focus to underserved N.C. schools

nerve cells to transmit signals correctly. The mechanisms and components that are needed to maintained the polarised organisation of the cell are examined in the new priority programme Cell Polarity. For around 20 years, biologists have divided the ...
Genetic method has promise for assessing environmental cleanup
...n method known as polymerase chain reaction, which enables
scientists to make billions of copies of a single strand of DNA. "Our detection technique requires several thousand or even millions of pieces of DNA before we can see them," Nies says. Catechol 2,3-dioxygenase is present in several types of bacteria...
One-two punch knocks out fly genes
...or other features, such as coat color. The method enables
researchers to see what happens when the gene is missing. But Dr. Golic's technique can go either way--his method can also be used to fix faulty genes, or "knock them in," by replacing a defective gene with one that is spelled correctly. This is...
Study seems to show why French suffer less heart disease, cancer
... UNC-CH researchers first reported that NF-kappa B enables
many cultured tumor cells to escape death when subjected to cancer-killing chemicals. After developing resistance to chemotherapy, cancer cells they studied continued reproducing and showed no ill effects from the treatment. Last year, the scientist...

additional mutations to occur. This gene belongs to the helicases, a class of proteins known to unwind double stranded DNA during replication and repair. In order to identify the exact role of this protein, Dr. Yan and colleagues turned to the specie...
New species arise more quickly than previously believed, UMass researcher finds
