Community MRSA is re-emergence of 1950's pandemic

...lier pandemic-causing strain. The researchers have sequenced key genes from 80/81 samples isolated between 1955 and 1969 in Australia, England and the USA, and compared them with the same regions in genes from a clone of one of the most common CA MRSAs which has been found in England and Scotland. They found t...

Innovative study finds way to 'bio-synthesize' an anti-cancer compound

...for Genomic Research (TIGR) in Rockville, MD, then sequenced the Prochloron genome. Working with Schmidt, they found the chemical pathways in the microbe's gene sequence that are responsible for producing patellamide A and C. Ravel, who led TIGR's role in the project, says: "For the first time, we have demonst...

What don't we know? Science presents the great unsolved scientific mysteries of our time

...logists' great surprise, once the human genome was sequenced in the late 1990s, it became clear that we only have about 25,000 genes about the same numbers as the flowering plant Arabidopsis. The details of how those genes are regulated and expressed is a central question in biology. How much can human life...

Mutations in HRAS gene sequence confirmed in patients with Costello syndrome

...performed DNA sequencing. When possible, they also sequenced the genes of the patients' parents. The results were striking. Among the patients with Costello syndrome, "We detected missense mutations in HRAS in 33 (82.5%) patients," the authors report. "All mutations affected either codon 12 or 13 of the protei...

Shift in feeding behavior of mosquitoes sheds light on West Nile virus outbreaks

...had just fed and still had bloodmeals in them. We sequenced the DNA in the bloodmeal to identify the species of host they had fed on." Their findings showed that from May to June, the American robin, which represented just 4.5% bird population at their sites, accounted for more than half of Culex pipiens' me...

UCLA, Italian chemists move closer to solving Lou Gehrig's disease mystery

...ll damage. The link with ALS came when researchers sequenced the genes of people who have the inherited form of ALS and found that some of them have mutations in the gene that codes for this enzyme. While the inherited form represents only a fraction of all ALS cases, this marked the first time there was any i...
