Strange Sex Life of Mole-rats may Provide Clues About Human Infertility

...them to show whos boss. We believe that the stress induced in the lower-ranking animals by this behaviour affects their fertility. There appears to be a total block to puberty in almost all the non-breeding mole-rats so that their hormones are kept down and their reproductive tracts are under-developed, Dr C...

Skin Cancer can Be Triggered by P53 Mutation

...nsitive to SCC formation and that D6 expression is induced in cells in close proximity to invasive SCC cells from human oral SCCs. In the absence of D6, skin inflammation sensitizes skin cells to tumor formation. In an accompanying commentary on these two studies, David Owens from Columbia University in Ne...

Role of MicroRNA in Cancer Suppression Identified

...in-vivo in mice as well as in cultured human cells induced the expression of a specific microRNA (miR-34a). Based on the likelihood that miR-34a could itself play a role in cellular apoptosis, researchers introduced miR-34a directly into human cancer cell lines to determine its impact on tumor cell behavior....

Insights into Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia

...observations suggest that dysregulated sumoylation induced by PML/RARA may contribute to altered gene expression and APL pathogenesis," explains Dr. de The. Taken together, results from these studies indicate that formation of higher-order homotetrameric complexes and recruitment of RXR are essential compo...

New Cancer Therapy in Clinical Trial

...totic defects. The researchers observed that TRAIL induced expression of two potent antiapoptotic molecules, Mcl-1 and cIAP2, and that c-Myc repressed both molecules. The researchers also discovered that the multikinase inhibitor sorafenib prevented TRAIL-mediated induction of Mcl-1 and cIAP2, and although...

Understanding HIV Interference With Infected Cell Division

...plex, is essential for the defect in cell division induced by Vpr. Further characterization of this protein complex as well as the elucidation of the mechanism by which it affects cell division may open new avenues for therapeutic intervention against HIV....

Novel Method of Adult Stem Cell Growth may Help to Treat Cornea Disorders

...ency of the cornea. Experiments on rabbits with induced limbic insufficiency showed that 60 per cent of the animals had recovered the corneal epithelium after the adult stem cells transplant. The corneal epithelium is the layer that is damaged with limbic insufficiency, a problem that results in opacit...

Scientists Demonstrate Heart Cell Replication in Mice

...researchers then moved to experiments in rats with induced heart attacks. In half the rats, a patch that had been incubated with periostin was placed over the infarct site, while the rest received Gelfoam only. Twelve weeks later, the treated patches were still releasing biologically-active periostin. The ...

Researchers Have Found the Role of Protein in Accelerating Breast Cancer Progression

...ding cells to remodel the tumour microenvironment, induced tumour angiogenesis, and increased the number of receptors for different markers of aggressive breast cancers. "Breast cancers progress through stages of increasing malignancy triggered by mutations that promote their growth," said Thomas Deuel, the...

Novel Method to Inhibit Prostate Cancer

He found that this emulsion compound did not cause a hypersensitive reaction upon injection and even yielded better results than known drug treatments while inhibiting tumor growth substantially. Goldstein cautions that this inhibi...

Fishing for a Speedy Recovery After Chemotherapy or Marrow Transplant

Other studies showed that estradiol, a primary human estrogen, spurs the growth of existing estrogen-dependent breast tumors. Helferich and colleagues demonstrated that like estradiol dietary genistein stimulates the growth of es...

Memory Loss Linked to Cognitive Disorders
