Protein 'chatter' linked to cancer activation
...become shorter. Individuals whose ends deteriorate faster
are at a higher risk of developing cancer because short chromosome ends are a serious threat to the stability of our genome. When the genome becomes unstable, it puts our bodies at greater risk of cancer. Zhu adds that patients with ataxia telangi...
Indo-Pacific coral reefs disappearing more rapidly than expected
...n the central and western Pacific ocean are dying faster
than previously thought, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill researchers have found. Nearly 600 square miles of reef have disappeared per year since the late 1960s, twice the rate of rainforest loss. The reefs are disappearing at a rate o...

In a first, Einstein scientists discover the dynamics of transcription in living mammalian cells
... the absence of pausing, elongation proceeded much faster
about 70 nucleotides synthesized per second than has previously been reported. These two phenomena pausing and rapid RNA synthesis during elongation may be crucial for regulating gene expression. With this sort of mechanism, you could have ever...
Defects in critical gene lead to accelerated lung tumor growth
...the LKB1 gene in the lung develop cancer at a much faster
rate than those with defects in other tumor suppressors commonly mutated in lung cancer. These mice develop cancers of not just one lung cancer subtype, but exhibit all three forms of non-small cell lung cancer: adenocarcinomas, squamous cell carcino...

...l Applied Optics, academics claim this approach is faster
and more sensitive than the extractive techniques normally used to monitor emissions. In an MOT test, for example, exhaust emissions are extracted into a box while the engine is idling and the gases present are then measured. The University of Ma...
Why nectar-feeding bats need a 'power drink' to fly

What determines the speed at which birds fly?
