Cell cycle proteins help immune cells trap microbes with nets made of DNA

Added: 20.11.2017 15:28 | 0 views | 0 comments

In your bloodstream, there are immune cells called neutrophils that, when faced with a pathogenic threat, will expel their DNA like a net to contain it. These DNA snares are called neutrophil extracellular traps or NETs. Researchers describe an important step in how these NETs are released and how they stop a fungus from establishing an infection in mice and human cells.

The severe and debilitating genetic disease Xeroderma pigmentosum impedes cells to repair UV-induced DNA damage. Scientists found a drug approved for diabetes treatment to alleviate the impact of the gene defect in cell culture, which led to the discovery of a previously unknown DNA repair mechanism.

New approach to studying chromosomes' centers may reveal link to Down syndrome and more

Added: 20.11.2017 12:41 | 0 views | 0 comments

A new technique may force the centromere -- the mysterious stretch of DNA in the center of every chromosome -- to give up its secrets at last. The first test of the approach has yielded clues about the role of centromeres in Down syndrome, and further use may accelerate research on other conditions that may have roots in centromere-related problems.

When seeking a cure for a disease, early detection is often the key. The same is true for eliminating invasive species. Identifying their presence in a lake before they are abundant is vital. A recent study successfully used environmental DNA to detect invasive clams in California and Nevada lakes. Researchers believe this tool can help identify pests before they become a problem.

Genomic study explores evolution of gentle 'killer bees' in Puerto Rico

Added: 20.11.2017 11:47 | 0 views | 0 comments

A study of Puerto Rico's Africanized honey bees -- which are more docile than other so-called 'killer bees' -- shows they retain most of the genetic traits of their African honey bee ancestors, but that a few regions of their DNA have become more like those of European honey bees. These changes likely contributed to the bees' rapid evolution toward gentleness in Puerto Rico, a change that occurred within 30 years, and could spell hope for beekeeping in North America.
