East African artifacts support evolution of symbolic thinking in Middle Stone Age

...tone Age tools. There are other ostrich eggshell fragments that may represent debris from bead manufacture. The Middle Stone Age in East Africa originates as early as 280,000 years ago, and is replaced by the Later Stone Age at about 45,000 years ago, though none of the Loiyangalani finds have been precisel...

Researchers use novel technology to extract RNA from archive formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue

...edure uses glass "chips" to hold thousands of gene fragments that can be visualized by a computer. Because genes RNA extracted from in a blood or tissue sample will bind to the corresponding gene fragment on the chip, researchers can analyze the expression of thousands of the sample's genes at once....

In an accompanying commentary, Akira Takashima from the University of Texas discusses the orchestration of lipid antigen presentation by LCs. TITLE: Langerhans cells utilize CD1a an...

Computer method identifies potentially active enzymes

...however, clashes occur in hybrids when they retain fragments from original enzymes that are not compatible with each other. "Pairs of residues that are too big, or too small, or have the wrong electrical charge can cause these clashes that prevent these hybrids from folding correctly," says Saraf. "We hypoth...

Cleaved actin fragments are present in muscles of rates with muscle atrophy from diabetes or uremia and fragment accumulation and the rate of muscle breakdown could be suppressed by a caspase-3 inhibitor. The report suggests that therapeutic strategies targeting caspase-3 a...

Genetic master switch sends bacteria toward 'seafood dinner'

...rough the ocean near the bacteria, these dissolved fragments of degraded chitin bind to the binding protein and remove the 'lock,' allowing the master switch to move into a 'plus' or 'on' position." When the switch is on, the bacteria's genes get to work, moving the organisms along the trail of partially deg...

'Panning for gold' in the maize genome

This approach will be an important part of assembling the short pieces of DNA yielded by the two enrichments methods into complete gene clusters. According to Silverthorne, "Together, these findings suggest that scie...

Use of new direct thrombin inhibitor may be as effective as current standard treatment
