Stretch a DNA loop, turn off proteins

... may look like mistletoe wrapped around a flexible candy cane. But this molecular model shows how some proteins form loops in DNA when they chemically attach, or bind, at separate sites to the double-helical molecule that carries lifes genetic blueprint. Biologists have discovered that the physical manif...

...oto is a squirrel on the Texas A&M campus eating a candy bar out of a wrapper, he noted. Of interest beyond university classes, Adams noted, may be the job description for an urban wildlife biologist as cities become more aware of the need for such well-educated personnel.

The sweet science: Viruses switch grip to gain upper hand

... attractive, especially when they come packaged in candy bars or never-ending bowls of pasta. Even viruses - those bits of occasionally harmful genetic material enclosed in shells of protein and fat - crave carbs. Except viruses aren't seeking a taste treat. They want to latch onto the carbohydrates tha...

How sweet it isn't -- preference for alternatives to sugar based on sour, bitter tastes

...mpounds are found in items such as diet soda, gum, candy and Jell-O, and some can be used for baking. Not surprisingly, sugar was rated highest. Participants found sucralose (brand name Splenda), a sweetener derived from sugar, the most acceptable alternative to sugar. The researchers attribute this to a l...

MTBE contamination: A microbial approach for groundwater

...rbons are much more toxic than MTBE, they are just candy to microbes and don't become as persistent a problem," said Hggblom, a professor in the department of biochemistry and microbiology at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and the Biotechnology Center for Agriculture and the Environment on Ru...
