A fly lamin gene is both like and unlike human genes

...ilar functions. Yet, Dushay and his colleagues, among others, have shown that the fly lamin genes are more closely related to each other than to mammalian lamin genes. While the independent evolution of similar expression patterns must have been driven by similar vital lamin gene functions, Dushay et el...

Study shows lizard moms dress their children for success

...when it comes to dressing their children, at least among side-blotched lizards, a common species in the western United States.

Scientists decode RNA mystery, will help aim drug therapies

...acyl tRNAs (aa-tRNA) called anticodons. Codons are among the many components that James Watson, Francis Crick, Franois Jacob, Jacques Monod, Marshall Nirenberg and others found in their discoveries of DNA and genetic code in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Crick coined the terms near-cognate and non-cogn...
