Protein expression refers to the synthesis of proteins within cells using information contained in the DNA or gene.  Proteins are responsible for all the biochemical reactions that take place...
‘’The central dogma of molecular biology deals with the detailed residue-by-residue transfer of sequential information from DNA to protein via RNA. It states that such information is unidirectional from DNA to protein and cannot be transferred from...
‘Several questions about origin of life have been answered, but much remains to be studied’’ said Stanley Miller and Harold Urey way back in 1959 after reporting laboratory synthesis of amino acids in primitive earth conditions. Many...
The Human Genome Project revealed that ~1-2% of our genome makes functional proteins while the role of the remaining 98-99% remains enigmatic. Researchers have tried to uncover the mysteries surrounding the same and this article throws light...
Several studies indicate that activation of NLRP3 inflammasome is responsible for acute respiratory distress syndrome and/or acute lung injury (ARDS/ALI) seen in severely ill COVID-19 patients which often result in death due to multiple organ failure. This...
Humans would not have existed without viruses because viral protein plays a key role in the development of human embryo. However, at times, they pose existential threats in the form of diseases as in the case of...
Researchers have adapted living cells and created novel living machines. Called xenobots, these are not a new species of animals but pure artefacts, designed to serve human needs in future.
Gingko trees lives for thousands years by evolving compensatory mechanisms to maintain a balance between growth and ageing. Ginkgo biloba, a deciduous gymnosperm tree native to China is known...
Success in mapping the complete neural network of male and female worms is an important progress towards understanding function of the nervous system. Our nervous system is an intricate...
Anorexia nervosa is an extreme eating disorder characterized with significant weight loss. Study on genetic origins of anorexia nervosa has revealed that metabolic differences play an equally important role along with psychological effects in the development of...
