UCLA Research May Explain Some Causes of Infertility and Miscarriage

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

A new study in the journal Nature Cell Biology has uncovered information about a key stage that human embryonic cells must pass through just before an embryo implants. The research, led by UCLA biologist Amander Clark, could help explain certain causes of infertility and spontaneous miscarriage. Infertility affects around 10 percent of the U.

Molecular Evolution: How the Building Blocks of Life May Form In Space

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

In an experiment that mimics astrophysical conditions, with cryogenic temperatures in an ultrahigh vacuum, scientists used an electron gun to irradiate thin sheets of ice covered in basic molecules of methane, ammonia and carbon dioxide, the building blocks of life. The experiment tested how the combination of electrons and basic matter leads to more complex biomolecule forms -- and perhaps eventually to life forms. The researchers discuss their work in The Journal of Chemical Physics.

What Can a Tasty Milkshake Teach Us About the Genetics of Heart Disease?

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

A genomic analysis of a large study population has identified uncommon gene variants involved in responses to dietary fats and medicine. Although these variants are rare, they may play a large role in a carrier's risk of heart disease.

First Genetic Evidence of Ongoing Mating Between Two Distinct Species of Guenon Monkeys

Florida Atlantic University

A new study of guenon monkeys in Gombe National Park is the first to provide genetic evidence of ongoing mating between two distinct species. These monkeys have successfully been producing hybrid offspring for hundreds maybe even thousands of years. Prior studies have suggested that their different physical characteristics keeps them from interbreeding. So, if their faces don’t match, they shouldn’t be mating, right? Wrong, according to this latest evidence.

First-Ever Study of Triple Gene Combinations Could Help Predict Risk of Disease

University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering

In the largest study of its kind, researchers at the University of Minnesota and University of Toronto have revealed a complex network of genes that work together. Understanding those genetic connections can help develop new life-saving treatments to combat diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

Researchers Build DNA Replication in a Model Synthetic Cell

Delft University of Technology

Researchers at Delft University of Technology, in collaboration with colleagues at the Autonomous University of Madrid, have created an artificial DNA blueprint for the replication of DNA in a cell-like structure. Creating such a complex biological module is an important step towards an even more ambitious goal: building a complete and functioning synthetic cell from the bottom up.
