Lack of solar radiation causes cancer

...gus, and stomach. The main reason is that sunlight initiates production of vitamin D, whose anti-cancer effect is well known. It would be good to get the benefits of UV-B without the risks. One way might be to use vitamin D supplements as a substitute for the action of UV-B on dietary pre-vitamin D. More re...

Ways to counter radiation effects with new molecule discovery

...estroy themselves. The molecule called MDC1, which initiates this protection mechanism, was discovered by researchers at the Institute of Cancer and Developmental// Biology, Cambridge. MDC1 is believed to play a key role in protecting us from radioactivity, as its inactivation, by a process called RNA interfer...

...earch. The gene's promoter which is a DNA sequence initiates the production of its protein, and also keeps under cover the other cloaking genes, according to researchers Brendan Crabb and Alan Cowman. The chief site of action is the promoter, according to them. The PfEMP1 protein is used by the malaria paras...

Understanding Cancer Initiation Could Help In Early Detection And Prevention

...bonucleic acid (DNA) to cause specific damage that initiates the series of events leading to breast, prostate and other human cancers. // This understanding of a common mechanism of cancer initiation could result in cancer prevention and in better assessment of cancer risk. The researchers will present thei...

...GFR), located on the tumor cell's surface. This initiates another molecular pathway called Ras which promotes the growth of the tumor cells. LARG is a central player in these molecular interactions and can be used in the potential treatment that could prevent both pathways from being initiated. Inside the L...

...e of them like, FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) initiates ovulation. Some other hormones are reported to have a role in the maintenance of pregnancy. The researcher, Rebecca Burch, thinks human males have evolved the concoction as a counter-strategy to concealed ovulation in women. Although there are subtl...

Protein Molecules in blood predict preeclampsia development

...ch, or bind, to the receptors, the binding process initiates a chain of events in the cells. PlGF binds to Flt1 on the lining of blood vessels. Another substance, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) also binds to Flt1. This binding process is essential to keeping blood vessels healthy and maintaining nor...

Protein as Potential Tactic to Prevent Tumors

... Clinic researchers have found that a protein that initiates a “quality control check” during cell division also directs cell death for those cells damaged during// duplication. This knowledge represents a potential “bulls eye” for targeting anti-tumor drugs. The findings appear in the current issue of Science...

Genetic Pathways to Curable and Incurable Forms of Pancreatic Cancer Identified

...elium called mucinous cystic neoplasms (MCN). This initiates a process that results in the rarer but far less deadly cystic pancreatic cancer. MCN lesions often are large enough to be detected early by MRI or CT scan and also to cause symptoms. The cells in this cancer also react differently to a key signal...

Glucose Causes Death of Brain Cells in Rodents Following Hypoglycemic Coma

... activates the enzyme NADPH oxidase, which in turn initiates a process of oxidative stress that is fatal to neurons. Oxidative stress occurs when cells are poisoned by highly reactive forms of oxygen. Previously, it had been assumed that oxidative stress in neurons was initiated primarily by mitochondria, wh...
