...s, but the duplicates auto-catalyzed the reaction, speeding it up. They further discovered that if they added "mutant" peptide templates with a single incorrectly handed molecule, these would not make more mutant templates. They would instead correct the mistake and catalyze the formation of new molecules wit...

Defining a niche that regulates stem cells

...ly altered individual stem cells, marking them and speeding up their progress through the niche. When the scientists measured the progress of the progeny of the marked stem cell, they detected a rapid replacement of the marked cell with "wild-type" stem cells in the niche. "This showed us that a cell can move...

Scientists develop chemical switch for natural signaling molecules, opening new approach to biomedical research and drug design

...ecules which together regulate vital signaling -- speeding up or slowing down message transmission as the needs of the cells dictate. The ideal research probe, Shokat points out, would be able to isolate just one of these functions, while leaving the others intact, and that is just what the new approach ...

Science Announces Top Ten Research Advances Of 1998

...howed that the expansion of the universe is infact speeding up. This implies that gravity is no match for the force that ispushing the universe outwards in all directions and that the expansion maycontinue, perhaps indefinitely. The force propelling the expansion is still a mystery, but a leading candidateis...

New "Bacteria Bashers" Wipe Out Infection
