Master Switches Found for Adult Blood Stem Cells
...ndred RNA strands. "They act like a single circuit breaker
to efficiently control hundreds of RNAs," says Civin, the Herman and Walter Samuelson Professor of Cancer Research. "We're looking for ways to flip these microRNA switches, to control when stem cells grow into new blood cells," says Robert Georgant...
Scientists Discover New Gene
...f human cancers. "CHD5 functions like a circuit breaker
that regulates the tumor-preventing power in our cells—when it blows, cancer occurs," explains Mills. Modulation of CHD5 activity may provide novel strategies for better design of more effective cancer therapies. This gene has remained a mystery unti...
