What is polio?

Poliomyelitis is a highly infectious disease caused by the polio virus. It invades the nervous system, and can cause paralysis or even death in a matter of hours. How is polio transmitted? The polio virus (scientifically known as the wild polio virus or WPV) enters the body through water or food that has been contaminated with faecal material from an infected person. The virus multiplies in the intestine. From blood it may pass to the nerves of the brain stem and spinal cord. The disease mainly affects children under five years. Only humans can catch polio. The incubation period is three-five days for minor illness and one-two weeks for paralytic symptoms. So a large number of people may have had a minor dose of polio without really being aware of it. The original flu like illness, the more chance there is of deterioration occurring later in life (fatigue & weakness). What are the different strains of polio? Paralytic polio can be caused by any of three closely related strain ...

Human Genome

The human genome is the genome of Homo sapiens, which is stored on 23 chromosome pairs. Twenty-two of these are autosomal chromosome pairs, while the remaining pair is sex-determining. The haploid human genome occupies a total of just over 3 billion DNA base pairs. The haploid human genome contains ca. 23,000 protein-coding genes, far fewer than had been expected before its sequencing. In fact, only about 1.5% of the genome codes for proteins, while the rest consists of non-coding RNA genes, regulatory sequences, introns, and (controversially named) "junk" DNA The Human Genome Project (HGP) produced a reference sequence of the euchromatic human genome, which is used worldwide in biomedical sciences. Genes Surprisingly, the number of human genes seems to be less than a factor of two greater than that of many much simpler organisms, such as the roundworm and the fruit fly. However, human cells make extensive use of alternative splicing to produce several different proteins from a single ...
