'Lipid Asymmetry' Plays Key Role in Activating Immune Cells

Feb. 20, 2018 — A cell's membrane is composed of a bilayer of lipids, and the inside-facing layer is made of different lipids than the outside-facing layer. Because different lipids create membranes with ... read more

Feb. 2, 2018 — About 6 percent to 12 percent of the babies born from mothers infected with the Zika virus during pregnancy will have the ... read more

Aug. 17, 2017 — Farmers can grow big, juicy tomatoes thanks to a mutation in the cell size regulator gene that occurred during the tomato domestication ... read more

Gene That Controls Immune Response to Chronic Viral Infections Identified

Aug. 15, 2017 — A gene that helps some people and animals fend off persistent viral infections has now been discovered by a team of ... read more

Aug. 10, 2017 — Scientists have edited the pig genome to deactivate a family of retroviruses. The results hold important implications for transplant medicine in ... read more

Pregnancy Loss and the Evolution of Sex Are Linked by Cellular Line Dance

Aug. 1, 2017 — Meiosis takes a heavy toll on the viability of offspring, new research shows. And not just for humans. Creatures from geckos to garlic and cactuses to cockroaches pay a price to undergo sexual ... read more

July 19, 2017 — For some developmental genes one allele must stay silent, otherwise debilitating syndromes and cancers can arise. Scientists have now uncovered a new imprinting mechanism cells use to keep these ... read more

July 7, 2017 — A new unique biosynthetic pathway for D-Glutamate has been discovered, an important cell wall component in pathogenic bacteria, which could lead to the development of medicines and agricultural ... read more

June 26, 2017 — Discovering the function of a gene requires cloning a DNA sequence and expressing it. Until now, this was performed on a one-gene-at-a-time basis, causing a bottleneck. Scientists have invented a ... read more

Antibiotics Promote Resistance on Experimental Croplands

June 16, 2017 — Researchers have generated both novel and existing antibiotic resistance mechanisms on experimental farmland, by exposing the soil to specific ... read more

New Antibiotic Resistance Gene Found in Salmonella from Broiler Chickens

May 23, 2017 — A gene that confers resistance to the important broad-spectrum antibiotic, fosfomycin, has been discovered by scientists. The researchers found the gene in isolates of the pathogen, Salmonella ... read more

A Mammoth Task: How Do We Decide Which Species to Resurrect?

May 16, 2017 — The resurrection of vanished species -- through cutting-edge technologies such as gene-editing -- should be targeted towards recently extinct species rather than ancient ones, according to a ... read more

Why Does So Much of Nature Rely on Sex for Reproduction?

May 4, 2017 — Why is sex so popular among plants and animals, and why isn't asexual reproduction, or cloning, a more common reproductive ... read more

Apr. 17, 2017 — Culminating a nearly 10 year effort, researchers have determined the atomic resolution structure of a key molecule that translates signals from a cell’s local environment into a language that the ... read more

How Can a Legally Binding Agreement on Human Cloning Be Established?

Mar. 21, 2017 — Since Dolly the Sheep was cloned, the question of whether human reproductive cloning should be banned or pursued has been the subject of international debate. Researchers argue that a robust global ... read more

Dec. 20, 2016 — Why does sex exist when organisms that clone themselves use less time and energy, and do not need a mate to produce offspring? Researchers aiming to answer this age-old question have discovered that ... read more

Dec. 20, 2016 — Most salamanders are homebodies when it comes to mating. But some of the beasts hit the road, traversing miles of rugged terrain unfit for an amphibian in pursuit of a partner from a far-away ... read more

Dec. 9, 2016 — It has been 20 years since Dolly the sheep was successfully cloned in Scotland, but cloning mammals remains a challenge. A new study of gene expression in developing clones now shows why most cloned ... read more

Oct. 24, 2016 — Difficulty seeing in bright light, which can be linked to a genetic mutation, can also increase baleen whales' susceptibility to fatal entanglements in fishing gear, say ... read more

Sep. 13, 2016 — Eggs can be 'tricked' into developing into an embryo without fertilization, but the resulting embryos, called parthenogenotes, die after a few days because key developmental processes ... read more
