    Scientists Pinpoint How Ocean Acidification Weakens Coral Skeletons

    The rising acidity of the oceans threatens coral reefs by making it harder for corals to build their skeletons. A new study led by Nathaniel Mollica, an @MIT-@WHOI Joint Program grad student in Oceanography, identifies the details of how ocean acidification affects coral skeletons, allowing scientists to predict more precisely where corals will be more vulnerable.

    Pairing Mismatch Helps Impaired Fish RNA Cleavage Proceed Swimmingly

    Researchers at Whitehead Institute have uncovered how small changes in the fish Argonaute (Ago) protein, an RNA slicing protein, that happened in its lineage an estimated 300 million years ago greatly diminished the efficiency of RNAi in these animals, while another ancestral feature, in a critical pre-microRNA, was retained that enabled the microRNA to still be produced despite the fish’s impaired Ago protein.
