Crucial evolutionary link points to origins of modern cells
...pulating, shaping and pulling in a membrane, cells could
create tiny compartments that perform many of the jobs they need," Rout adds. "Thus, the eukaryotic cell freed itself from relying on only a cell wall for many of its membrane-associated functions, and allowed the cell to develop a host of intricate ...

Sexual competition drives evolution of a sex-related gene
In what could
be termed a truly seminal discovery, researchers have shown that when females are more promiscuous, males have to work harder -- at the genetic level, that is. More specifically, they determined that a protein controlling semen viscosity evolves more...

New source for heart bypass replacement blood vessels: Fibrin-based TEVs
