Genes outside nucleus have disproportionate effect

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (11 months ago)

New research shows that the tiny proportion of a cell's DNA that is located outside the cell nucleus has a disproportionately large effect on a cell's metabolism. The work, with the model plant Arabidopsis, may have implications for... Read Post

Genes under control: Scientists develop gene switch for chloroplasts in plant cells

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (4 years ago)

The organelles of photosynthesis -- the chloroplasts -- have their own DNA, messenger RNA and ribosomes for forming proteins. Scientists have now discovered how to regulate the formation of proteins in the chloroplasts. They can use... Read Post

Direct transfer of plant genes from chloroplasts into the cell nucleus: Gene function preserved despite structural differences in the dna

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (2 years ago)

Chloroplasts, the plant cell's green solar power generators, were once living beings in their own right. This changed about one billion years ago, when they were swallowed up but not digested by larger cells. Since then, they have l... Read Post
