-Archipelago Regulates Cyclin E: Role in Cancer
http://www.bio.com/newsletter.jhtml?ci=629321
Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have shown that
the gene archipelago may have an important role in various human
cancers. The results are published in the September 20, 2001 issue
of Nature.


-Carbon Nanotubes for Nanotechnology
http://www.bio.com/newsletter.jhtml?ci=811133
A team of researchers has used computer simulations to discover carbon
fibers with mechanical strength comparable to that of diamond. In a
paper published in the September 18, 2001 issue of Physical Review
Letters, workers report the discovery of incredibly strong and stiff
carbon tubes about 0.4 nanometers in diameter.


-New Player in Bacillis' Tryptophan Regulation
http://www.bio.com/newsletter.jhtml?ci=812255
Researchers have discovered a bacterial protein that could turn
out to be an evolutionary ancestor of disease-fighting antibodies
in humans. In a study published in the September 14, 2001 issue
of the journal Science. Stanford Professor Emeritus Charles
Yanofsky and postdoctoral fellow Angela Valbuzzi describe how they
were the first to isolate a protein they call anti-TRAP (AT)
from the bacterium Bacillus subtilis.
