UCSB American Names UCSB Professor, Alumna To Of Top 50 In technology leadership listA UC Santa Barbara professor and one of his former students for for the 2006 Scientific American 50 , the magazine ‘s annual list of persons ,, proved the outstanding technological leadership through their pioneering research. The list, selected by the Board of Editors of Scientific American, appears in the magazine ‘s December issue.
Daniel E. Morse is Professor of Molecular Genetics and Biochemistry and Director of the Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies at UCSB. His former doctoral student, Angela Belcher, who has both a bachelor’s degree and Ph.D. From UCSB, is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Aside from being in the ‘Scientific American 50 ‘, it was also named ‘Research Leader of the Year ‘by the magazine.Through their work the researchers found that also change in a small range to the temperature of from 23 to 37 C level, some yeasts RNAs Your structural, either to show or hide particular sequences of. As the splicesome using all intersection points falling accessible, but not the one is hidden , the result is to said intron is identified differ generating two ultimately to produce two different proteins.
For some time, scientists attempts to understand such that spliceosome – the molecular ‘machine’to produce work of splicing – an mRNA with a capacity for producing the correct protein. The splicing, the spliceosome selects internal sequence fragments, in a process , in which it intersecting said RNA genetic sequence at certain points: the endings of the introns. Be it joins the fragments of to generate the new mRNA.
