Genomes of Asgard archaea encode profilins that regulate actin, Published online: 03 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0548-6

Asgard archaea encode functional profilins that can interact with mammalian actin, which suggests that—similar to eukaryotic cells—they possess a regulated actin cytoskeleton.

Genes that regulate how much we dream

Sleep is known to allow animals to re-energize themselves and consolidate memories. Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is known to play an important role in maintaining a healthy mental and physical life, but the molecular mechanisms behind this state are barely understood. Now, scientists have identified a pair of genes that regulate how much REM and non-REM sleep an animal experiences.

RNA molecules that regulate action of male hormone in prostate cancer identified

A study detected in tumoral tissue hundreds of RNAs that do not encode proteins but appear to regulate effects of androgens and androgen receptors on gene expression in tumors. By investigating the connection between the presence of these molecules and tumor aggressiveness, the research paves the way for new scientific approaches focusing on the transcription process of noncoding RNA.
