Adenine is one of the four bases in DNA that make up the letters ATGC, adenine is the "A". The others are guanine, cytosine, and thymine. Adenine always pairs with thymine.
Scientists from the Tokyo Medical and Dental University\ introduce an easy method for manufacturing biosensors made from electrospun polymers.
A new MedComm study describes the potential use of circular ribonucleic acid COVID-19 vaccines.
In a new study, researchers uncovered distinct genomic features of SARS-CoV-2 Delta and Omicron variants.
One way cells can control the activities of their genes is by adding small chemical modifications to the DNA that determine which genes are turned on or off.
In a recent study posted to the bioRxiv* pre-print server, researchers investigated the blood levels of neurotoxic metabolites in patients with mild coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Researchers reported on the misclassification of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron BA.1 subvariant as Omicron BA.2 subvariant in an automated variant-specific polymerase chain reaction analysis.
In a recent work posted to the bioRxiv* preprint server, researchers analyzed various monkeypox virus (MPXV) lineages identified recently in the United States (US).
A new research describes how highly proliferative leukemia cells end up becoming normal cells that no longer multiply, by changing the chemical modifications -the so-called epigenetics- of a type of its genetic material: the messenger RNA.
Investigators from the Women's Guild Lung Institute at Cedars-Sinai have discovered that zinc, a common mineral, may reverse lung damage and improve survival for patients with a deadly age-related condition known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
Rampant inflammation has long been linked to cancer but exactly how it pushes healthy cells to transform into malignant ones has remained a mystery.
Researchers explored factors affecting substrate selection by the SARS-CoV-2 replicase.
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research and the University of Cologne, Germany, have discovered a novel biochemical mechanism explaining how immune proteins defend plants against invading microorganisms.
A new paper examines the association between androgens and COVID-19, as revealed by the research carried out on this topic throughout the pandemic.
In a recent study posted to the bioRxiv* pre-print server, researchers characterized the mutations in severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) non-structural protein 15 (Nsp-15).
Every organism is born with a few mutations in their genome that differ genetically from both of their parents.
Weill Cornell Medicine researchers have identified a protein in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) that contributes to drug tolerance, a phenomenon that allows bacteria to survive treatment with drugs that would normally kill them.
Researchers from the Center for Genome Engineering within the Institute for Basic Science developed a new gene-editing platform called transcription activator-like effector-linked deaminases, or TALED.
Hybrid material helps ferry genetic cargo to target cells. An emerging type of material called a metal-organic framework(MOF) could help improve the delivery of genetic material for treating disease.
A new study identified mechanisms regulating immune cell plasticity to develop new therapeutics.
