Characterization of a molecular mechanism involved in cellular proliferation

Scientists have uncovered the molecular interaction between TACC3 and chTOG, key proteins in forming the internal cellular framework that enables and sustains cell division.
Human genome was shaped by an evolutionary arms race with itself
New findings by scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, suggest that an evolutionary arms race between rival elements within the genomes of primates drove the evolution of complex regulatory networks that orchestrate the activity of genes.
Researchers study vital 'on/off switches' that control when bacteria turn deadly
By using a signalling system called 'quorum sensing', bacteria radically alter their behaviour to suit their population. In short, some bacteria 'know' how many of them are present, and act accordingly.
