The Homebody RNA

Why does some RNA stay in the nucleus rather than rushing off to make proteins? 

Gene expression of schizophrenia-related genes. 1,028 genes with very similar expression profiles are shown, one to a row, and 480 samples are arrayed in the columns. Red-to-blue shows the strength of the gene's expression level, red being stronger

New research reveals a cluster of genetic “typos” that may increase the risk of schizophrenia

RiPS (RNA-induced pluripotent stem) cells grow long, nerve-cell-like extensions when moved to a new substrate
A new finding might help bring the medical use of stem cells one small step closer to...

How an essential cellular protein regulates its own levels

Shooting The Messenger
The age-old appeal to avoid 'shooting the messenger' is apparently left unheeded by the body's protein regulation system....
