Immune cells' genetic 'jam session' is controlled by cell division machinery

...k genes for recombination, ebbs and flows with the steps of cell division. It reaches peak levels just before DNA copying starts, then drops quickly and stays low until the cell completely divides. "It was clear that destruction of RAG2 signals the end of active recombination, but whether its decline just ...

Study shows eutrophic lakes may not recover for a millennium

Geneticists identify 'master switch' that causes female flies to behave like males

...sexual cues. ''In these experiments we see all the steps of the male courtship ritual you could physically expect a female fly to do,'' says Bruce S. Baker, the Dr. Morris Herzstein Professor in Biology at Stanford and co-author of the study. ''It's a male's behavioral circuitry in a female body.'' Baker a...

Emerging diseases require a global solution

...ese problems, Karesh and Cook call for a number of steps to integrate human and animal disease prevention efforts in a coordinated manner. Recommendations include better surveillance of wildlife diseases to prevent outbreaks before they occur, shifting the cost of preventing and controlling outbreaks to an...

Now, in a new study published online by Nature today, the Wistar group has identified a three-protein complex that picks up the process in the cell cytoplasm and carries it through to the maturation of ...

The making and breaking of microtubules

...to capture GMPCPP-bound tubulin during the initial steps of microtubule growth. At low temperatures, GMPCPP-bound tubulin forms curved ribbons of a few protofilaments side by side; as they grow wider the ribbons close into very large helical tubes with a diameter of 500 angstroms, instead of the slim, 25-...
