A record-long polymer DNA negative

Added: 17.11.2018 17:54 | 6 views | 0 comments

A fragment of a single strand of DNA, built of the nucleobases cytosine and guanine, can be imprinted in a polymer, researchers have shown. The resulting artificial negative, with a record-long length, functions chemically like a normal strand of deoxyribonucleic acid.

Dodging antibiotic resistance by curbing bacterial evolution

Added: 16.11.2018 21:45 | 12 views | 0 comments

Lowering mutation rates in harmful bacteria might be an as yet untried way to hinder the emergence of antimicrobial pathogens. One target for drug development might be a protein factor, DNA translocase Mfd, that enables bacteria to evolve rapidly by promoting mutations in many different bacterial species. This action speeds antibiotic resistance, including multi-drug resistance. Working on drugs to block Mfd and similar factors could be a revolutionary strategy to address the worldwide crisis of treatment-resistant infectious diseases.

Engineered DNA-encoded PCSK9 inhibitors may provide an effective alternative for treating high cholesterol

Added: 16.11.2018 19:18 | 13 views | 0 comments

Researchers have developed novel synthetic DNA-encoded monoclonal antibodies (DMAbs) directed against PCSK9, a protein key to regulating cholesterol levels in the bloodstream. Results of preclinical studies showed a significant cholesterol decrease, opening the door for further development of this approach as a simple, less frequent and cost-effective therapy.

DNA of world's oldest natural mummy unlocks secrets of Ice Age tribes in the Americas

Added: 16.11.2018 18:23 | 4 views | 0 comments

A wide ranging international study that genetically analysed the DNA of a series of famous and controversial ancient remains across North and South America has discovered that the Spirit Cave remains -- the world's oldest natural mummy - was a Native American. They were also able to dismiss a longstanding theory that a group called Paleoamericans existed in North America before Native Americans.
