...hromosomes become unstable. The cell may then stop dividing or die. The scientists compared the twins and found that participants with high numbers of moles - more than 100 - had longer telomeres than those with fewer than 25 moles.The difference between the two groups was equivalent to six to seven year...

Understanding HIV Interference With Infected Cell Division

...ein R (Vpr), which stops infected CD4+T cells from dividing and as a consequence compromises their immune function. In addition, by arresting cell division, Vpr helps HIV to harness the infected cells resources to enhance viral replication. The way Vpr exerts this effect is by interacting with cellular pro...

...t are rejuvenated. Yeast cells formerly capable of dividing 13 times, divided over 23 times when given NR. Deletion of either pathway makes NR only half as effective as it is when both pathways are intact. So yeast cells seem to use both pathways equally well to lengthen their lifespan. The first NR pathway...

New Technique Dissects Stem Cells' Picky Likes, Dislikes

Semenzas team uncovered the mitochondrial mechanism in a study of Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome, caused by a single gene mutation and characterized by the tendency to develop tumors in many parts of the body, including the kidney, ...

DNA-damage Test Could Aid Drug Development

Participants in the three-person control group read three opinion statements each made by a different group member. The participants in the...

Device That Targets Brain Cancer Shows Promising Results

... them to stop proliferating and die off instead of dividing and growing. Healthy brain cells rarely divide and have different electrical properties than cancerous brain cells. This allows the device to target cancer cells without affecting the healthy cells. The 10 patients who were being treated with the...
