Scientists identify new, non-helical DNA structure within living human cells
The new findings, which come from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Australia, have recently been published in the journal Nature Chemistry. In the i-motif, C letters located on the same strand bind to each other, which is unlike the double helix structure, where letters on opposite strands bind ...

Familiar Double Helix DNA Strands Aren't The Only Ones That Show Up In Human Cells
In an ominous sign for patient safety, 71 percent of reusable medical scopes deemed ready for use on patients tested positive for bacteria at three major U.S. hospitals, according to a new study. The paper, published last month in the American Journal of Infection Control, underscores the infection risk ...

British public willing to help the NHS advance medical research, notes YouGov poll
58% of British people are willing to provide a blood sample to be part of a national DNA database for medical research, compared to 26% who are not willing (with the rest saying “don't know”). 57% of British people said they would be willing to register as an organ donor for research purposes, ...

New DNA structure resembling a 'twisted knot' discovered in living human cells
Called the i-motif, the DNA form has been described as “a four-stranded knot of DNA” and is different to the more well-known double helix structure. The discovery was made by researchers from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia. Associate professor Daniel Christ, who is head ...

Scientists Discover New Type Of Human DNA That Defies The Science Of Double Helix
A new type of human DNA that does not resemble the double helix shape has emerged in a study performed in a laboratory in Australia. Scientists at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research discovered that human DNA may not necessarily take the shape and structure of the double helix. Instead ...

PAVmed Signs Letter of Intent with Case Western Reserve University to Commercialize ...
DNA is extracted from the cells and tested for a panel of DNA biomarkers developed by the laboratory of EsoCheck co-inventor Sanford Markowitz, MD, PhD, the Ingalls Professor of Cancer Genetics medical oncologist at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, NCI Outstanding Investigator ...

New DNA 'Twist': There's Double Helix and Now 'I-motif'
In a new DNA twist, Australian scientists have found another structure in living human cells besides the familiar double helix. Called the “i-motif,” it's a four-stranded knot of DNA thought to have regulatory properties. Researchers at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research said the i-motif structure had ...

Researchers identify new form of DNA in living cells
In a world first Australian-led study published on Tuesday, researchers have identified a new DNA structure inside living cells. Referred to as “i-motif” by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, the new DNA structure is shaped as a four-stranded “knot” which is completely different to the well-known ...

Blockchain meets genetic testing: DNAtix raising $30m
"A month after we began, my mother died, and now I'm really about to sequence her DNA, which was kept in our freezer, in order to find out about our family's medical history," Lidsky says. The company later developed a test for detecting a gene that increases the risk of baldness. "Treatment of baldness ...

FDA Issues Two Guidances on Next Generation Sequencing
So when the FDA issued two guidances on next generation DNA sequencing, we thought we would let you know since this new technology plays an important role in genetic-based personalized medicine, and in turn, prescription medical product liability litigation. Now for some background. The Human ...

Mysterious new form of DNA seen inside human cells for the first time looks like a 'twisted knot ...
Discovery of the 'i-motif' form of DNA was made by researchers in Sydney; It is unclear what the function is but it could be for 'reading' DNA sequences; Although researchers have seen the i-motif before, it has only been witnessed under artificial conditions in the laboratory, and not inside cells.

New four-stranded structure that comes and goes in the DNA
For the first time in the world, UNSW researchers have identified a new DNA structure – called the i-motif, a twisted 'knot' of DNA inside cells. Scientists from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research have made this discovery by directly seeing i-motif inside living cells. Our DNA lies somewhere inside the ...

Aussie study uncovers new form of DNA in living cells
SYDNEY, April 24 (Xinhua) -- In a world first Australian-led study published on Tuesday, researchers have identified a new DNA structure inside living cells. Referred to as "i-motif" by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, the new DNA structure is shaped as a four-stranded "knot" which is completely ...
