Peptides may hold ‘missing link’ to life

Simple peptides can organize into bi-layer membranes. This recent finding suggests a “missing link” between the pre-biotic Earth’s chemical inventory and the organizational scaffolding essential to life.

“We’ve shown that peptides can form the kind of membranes needed to create long-range ord... Read More

Genomic 'Haircut' Makes World's Tiniest Genome Even Smaller

The world's tiniest nuclear genome appears to have "snipped off the ends" of its chromosomes and evolved into a lean, mean, genome machine that infects human cells, according to research published September 21 by University of British Columbia scientists.

Until recently, E. cuniculi, a parasi... Read More

New Non-Profit Directly Links Donors to Researchers; Seeks Submissions from Scientists in Need of Project Funding

Salmonella outwits immune system

The bacteria Salmonella enterica—a common cause of food poisoning—exploits the immune response in the human gut to enhance its own survival.

The strategy, which improves reproductive and transmission success, gives Salmonella a growth advantage over the beneficial bacteria that normally are p... Read More

A new type of enveloped virus?

All known virus particles can be placed into one of two general categories: enveloped or non-enveloped. Viruses that fall into the former category are characterized by a lipid membrane derived from the host cell, and one or more nuclecapsid proteins that interact with the viral genome. A virus t...

Blocking the malaria 'burglar'

Development of an effective vaccine for malaria is a step closer following identification of a key pathway used by the malaria parasite to infect human cells. The discovery, by researchers at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, provides a new vaccine target through which infection with the dead... Read More

Another deadly challenge for the sea otter

Pity the poor sea otter.

It's been a struggle for the furry, button-nosed critter to make a comeback since being hunted nearly to extinction along California's coast.

They get chomped by great white sharks. They must scrounge in overexploited waters to find enough shellfish to eat. Their i... Read More

Yeast Studies Hint at New Ways to Exploit Cancer Cells’ Excess Genes

Genetic mutations that supercharge a cellular garbage disposal may explain why cancer cells can thrive even as their genetic material multiplies out of control, suggests new research by Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Angelika Amon. Though performed in yeast cells, the work may one... Read More
