Role of RNA Methylation elucidate in Drug Resistance by Leukemia Cells

Results of a current study elucidate the roles of RNA 5-methylcytosine (RNA:m5C) and RNA:m5C methyltransferases (RCMTs) in the formation of detached chromatin structures that modulate 5-Azacitidine (5-AZA) response or resistance in leukemia cells.Azacitidine is a chemical analogue of the nucleoside cytidine, which is present in DNA and RNA. It is thought to have anticancer stir…

New method to improve crops

A team of University of Georgia researchers has developed a new way to breed plants with better traits. By introducing a human protein into the model plant species Arabidopsis thaliana, researchers found that they could particular activate silenced genes already available within the plant. Using this method to enlarge variety among plant populations could serve…
