...e ribosome. The released ribosome is now empty and free to start a new session of translating mRNA into protein. Where RRF binds is near the key ribosomal spot holding mRNA. "Since the main function of RRF is to release mRNA, this makes sense in terms of function," explains Kaji. Humans have an RRF analo...

In the obese, metabolic adaptations post-weight loss lead to regaining of shed pounds

...s." Next, the polonies are exposed sequentially to free DNA bases tagged with fluorescent markers in the presence of a different enzyme, and the incorporation of those bases into the polonies is monitored with a scanning machine. This produces a read-out of the DNA sequence from each polony. A computer pr...

Harmless virus helps slow HIV by boosting immune proteins

"The next thing we have to do is determine a way to mimic the effect of this virus [GBV-C] and learn how to make it persist, so it can continue to induce these chemokines and these changes in the cell that help H...

...s removed from the animals' diets, the p25 gene is free to act - and the damage is quick and heavy: atrophy, neuronal death, tangles, tau, and now beta amyloid. Dr. Tsai says the questions now focus on the mechanism that causes p35 to get turned into p25. Understanding that - and having this mouse model m...

But another theory is that calorie restriction does something critical to the insulin-signalling pathway that helps regulate how glucose is used by the body. Dr Mari...

Damaged genes in aging human brain provide clues to cognitive decline

...unusually vulnerable to damage from agents such as free radicals and toxins in the environment," said Yankner. "The brain's ability to cope with these toxic insults and repair these genes declines with age, leading to their reduced expression. It will now be important to learn how to prevent this damage,...
