Recently discovered protein turbocharges gene expression

For many years, scientists have sought to understand what happens when our genes are flipped to the "on" position. Now, scientists at the University of California San Diego and Rutgers University have identified a new protein ...

Scientists pinpoint protein's role in critical gene expression

Each cell in our body needs a fuel source to grow and divide to keep us alive. Most cells prefer a fuel source of high energy-containing sugar, but there are many times when our cells find themselves in short supply and must ...

Exploring the dual function of the CTCF protein

The rapid scientific advancements that followed the mapping of the human genome have revealed just how staggeringly complex the world of genetics is. We now know that proteins are not just the products of genes, but that ...

How plants leave behind their parents' genomic baggage

Passing down a healthy genome is a critical part of creating viable offspring. But what happens when you have harmful modifications in your genome that you don't want to pass down? Baby plants have evolved a method to wipe ...

The first frost is the deepest

The first frost of autumn may be grim for gardeners but the latest evidence reveals it is a profound event in the life of plants.

Gene silencing by crosstalk

Researchers at IMBA—Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences–unveil functional and mechanistic details in small RNA-mediated co-transcriptional gene silencing. The results are published ...

Protecting the genome from transposon activation

Transposons are foreign DNA elements capable of random insertion into the genome, an event that can be very dangerous for a cell. Their activity must be silenced to maintain genomic integrity, which is primarily achieved ...
