Bacterial Inclusion Bodies Contain Amyloid-Like Structure

linked profile(s): Lei Wang
submitted by: apryl
Protein aggregation is a process in which identical proteins self-associate into imperfectly ordered macroscopic entities. Such aggregates are generally classified as amorphous, lacking any long-range order, or highly ordered fibrils. Protein fibrils can be composed of native globular molecules, such as the hemoglobin molecules in sickle-cell fibrils, or can be reorganized β-sheet–rich aggregates, termed amyloid-like fibrils. Amyloid fibrils are associated with several...

This video is one the items of the supporting information of the 2006 paper, 'Self-recognition in an Asian elephant' (PNAS November 7, 2006 vol. 103 no. 45 17053-17057). The study titled has found that elephants, like humans, chimpanzees, and dolphins, recognize themselves in mirrors. Robert Siegel talks with Joshua Plotnik, a gradate student in psychology at Emory University's Yerkes National Primate Research Center, who co-authored the study.

"The Genetic Response to Snowball Earth: Role of HSP90 in the Cambrian Explosion" Download this paper at the following web address: http://repositories.cdlib.org/postprints/2103 The events that shaped the Cambrian explosion from 545 to 530 Ma, when multicellular animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record, are not fully understood. It is likely that the evolution of new transcription factors and other signal transduction proteins that regulated developmental networks was important...
