Future studies will have to explore this question, along with the issues of how oligomers figure into the process and how they cause disease. Weissman and colleagues raise the possibility that creating conditions that favor fiber growth whil...

...titive homeostasis, which might be the result of a shared uptake and dephosphorylation of a common substrate necessary for the survival of germ cells. In this model, too much Wun or Wun2 in somatic cells would deprive germ cells of the survival signal, causing them to die; too little Wun2 in the germ cells ...

Complex cells likely arose from combination of bacterial and extreme-microbe genomes

... plants or animals were said to be related if they shared certain, mostly physical, characteristics. DNA technology now allows much closer scrutiny of hereditary molecules, which provides a more accurate and detailed picture of the genetic relationships between and among living things. "New computation...

Excess thyroid hormone harmful to fetus

...rs to have the mutation, two-thirds (20 out of 31) shared this mutation and only one-third of the infants born to affected mothers did not. This suggests that the high rate of miscarriage primarily involved unaffected fetuses. The mutation appears to have protected affected fetuses from the effects of exc...

Scientists identify compounds that mimic calorie restriction

Study suggests double punch could more efficiently kill viruses

...s. The team found that it is not peptides that are shared with recipient cells, but rather full-length, intact proteins. And, whereas, the previous theory suggested that proteasomes in the donor cell cut up the proteins into peptides prior to transfer to the recipient cell, Norbury's team found that the pro...
