Mitochondrial Genomes Reconstructed from Teeth of Prehistoric Native Americans

Physicial anthropologists succeeded to enrich human mitochondrial DNA from dental calculus in amounts that enabled reconstruction of whole mitogenomes for maternal lineage ancestry analysis. More...

Evolutionary Fitness for Codon Bias Selection Measured

Using bacteria as a model, researchers have for the first time quantified weak but effective selection forces that determine non-random codon usage in protein translation of RNA.  More...

Liposome Transport Protects Metabolic Activity of Prostate Cancer Drug

The efficacy of liposome transport to protect the physiological activity of a small-molecule anti-prostate cancer drug was demonstrated both in vitro and in a mouse xenograft model.  More...

Image: A confocal micrograph of the lesion core following spinal cord injury. Nuclear EdU (red) shows the presence of newly differentiated cells which produce Schwann cell myelin (green). These peripheral-like Schwann cells remyelinate central axons in the injured spinal cord and are important for spontaneous repair and functional recovery after spinal cord injury (Photo courtesy of King\'s College London).

Molecular Mechanism Regulating Regeneration of Spinal Nerves Identified

The protein neuregulin-1 was found to regulate the repair mechanism that attempts to restore lost myelin following spinal cord injury.  More...

Novel Haploid Stem Cells Expected to Advance Genomics Research

A team of cell biologists has generated a novel type of haploid pluripotent embryonic stem cells that have only one set of chromosomes instead of the usual two.  More...

Nanoparticle Drug Delivery Avoids Cancer Cells' Protein Pumps

A novel nanoparticle delivery system avoids excretion by cancer cells' protein pumps and transports the highly toxic anti-cancer drug doxorubicin directly into the nuclei of cancer cells without causing damage to normal tissues or cells.  More...
