Crucial Step in Human DNA Replication Observed Using Fluorescent Tags

Crucial Step in Human DNA Replication Observed Using Fluorescent Tags | Biological (Organic) Computing | Scoop.it

For the first time, an elusive step in the process of human DNA replication has been demystified by scientists at Penn State University. According to senior author Stephen J. Benkovic, an Evan Pugh Professor of Chemistry and Holder of the Eberly Family Chair in Chemistry at Penn State, the scientists "discovered how a key step in human DNA replication is performed." The results of the research will be published in the journal eLife on 2 April 2013.

Editing the book of life with molecular scissors | Biological (Organic) Computing | Scoop.it

Life's code is written in A's (adenine), T's (thymine), C's (cytosine) and G's (guanine), the letters representing the four nucleotides within the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) that direct the action of a cell from its nucleus. Three billion of these letters paired in two strands spell out the human genome sequence, a code scientists study every day looking for the causes of disease.

Breakthrough Research Shows Chemical Reactions in Real Time

Breakthrough Research Shows Chemical Reactions in Real Time | Biological (Organic) Computing | Scoop.it

The ultrafast, ultrabright X-ray pulses of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) have enabled unprecedented views of a catalyst in action, an important step in the effort to develop cleaner and more efficient energy sources.

 

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory used LCLS, together with computerized simulations, to reveal surprising details of a short-lived early state in a chemical reaction occurring at the surface of a catalyst sample. The study offers important clues about how catalysts work and launches a new era in probing surface chemistry as it happens.

 

"To study a reaction like this in real time is a chemist's dream," said Anders Nilsson, deputy director for the Stanford and SLAC SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis and a leading author in the research, published March 15 in Science. "We are really jumping into the unknown."

 

In the LCLS experiment, researchers looked at a simple reaction in a crystal composed of ruthenium, a catalyst that has been extensively studied, in reaction with carbon monoxide gas. The scientists zapped the crystal's surface with a conventional laser, which caused carbon monoxide molecules to begin to break away. They then probed this state of the reaction using X-ray laser pulses, and observed that the molecules were temporarily trapped in a near-gas state and still interacting with the catalyst.

 

"We never expected to see this state," Nilsson said. "It was a surprise."

 

Not only was the experiment the first to confirm the details of this early stage of the reaction, it also found an unexpectedly high share of molecules trapped in this state for far longer than what was anticipated, raising new questions about the atomic-scale interplay of chemicals that will be explored in future research.
