Potent anticancer drug increases function of axons in mouse model of neurodegeneration
...rt. If the cross-ties are missing, the tracks will wobble
and the train will run off the tracks." In a sick neuron, tau is clumped into aggregates, so the microtubule cross-ties are missing, the tracks break, and transmission of nerve signals fails. In the hopes of restoring the microtubule tracks to their ...
Penguins waddle but they don't fall down, UH researchers say
...es are we'll fall, but some aspects of a penguin's wobble
could be very beneficial. "We can envision a scenario where elderly may be able to put their walkers or canes down because they've learned to make the same adjustments in their walking patterns," Kurz said. "This research may aid in developing a way...
Mispairs in genetic material make protein synthesis more efficient
...ed pair inactivated the molecule completely. "The wobble
pairs fit together at an angle and the bonds are much less stable than matched pairs," McClain explains. "This makes the molecule more likely to come undone, and therefore more reactive." This is crucial because DNA and RNA molecules are not the st...
