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...

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 ...
