Liver Cancer More Prevalent in Males

... IL-6 than the males. Comparing the normal mice to knockout mice missing the IL-6 cytokine, the scientists found that when knockout mice were given DEN, both males and females developed liver cancer at the same, lower, rates. By ...

Sensible Diet, Exercise and Weight Control Increases Longevity

...e blood, said White. However, both sets of Irs2 knockout mice exhibited other characteristics that marked them as healthier. They were more active as they aged, and their glucose metabolism resembled that of younger mice. The researchers also found that after eating, their brains showed higher levels of...

How Blood Flow Dictates Gene Expression

... loss of vessel tone as the primary defect in Klf2 knockout mice. Now that Klf2 has been established as an important regulator of blood flow in live animals and is required for the development of a healthy cardiovascular system, the next step is to elucidate the role of Klf2 in normal adult blood vessels and ...

Alternative Splicing - Molecular Cloning

...Nova RNA targets and the results were validated in knockout mice that were missing Nova. In the new study, Darnell, with co-first authors Jernej Ule and Giovanni Stefani, took these 50 RNA transcripts and searched them for clusters of sequences they had previously identified as Nova binding sites through b...

Protein Increase Decreases Risk of Heart Failure

...levels of the gene for and the protein S100A1, and knockout mice that lacked S100A1 altogether. S100A1, part of a larger family of proteins called S100, is primarily found at high levels in muscle, particularly the heart. Previous studies by other researchers showed that the protein was reduced by as much a...

Tony Urwin of BUPA said: "When people's emotions run high stress levels can shoot up affecting both their heart rate and blood pressure.We are hoping that history does not repeat itself”. "If England gets knoc...

Autoimmune Diseases – Newer Preventive Measure

... cells in a mouse missing the Aire gene. That Aire knockout is a good model for humans with APS1. They found significantly fewer iNKT cells in the thymus, spleen, liver and bone marrow and severely impaired maturation of those cells in mice missing the Aire gene. And the mice given alpha-GalCer had signific...

Research Throws Light On Regeneration of Hearing Cells

...rth – the researchers found more hair cells in the knockout mice than in the ears of normal mice at the same stage of development. The additional cells looked and functioned like normal hair cells and appeared to be actively regenerating. For this follow-up study, the researchers developed a new strain of i...

Little Known DNA Repair Enzyme May Be A Tumor Suppressor Gene

More Lizards, Including Pets, Found Venomous

...d author of the research, the venom is the perfect knockout punch by monitor lizards to their prey like small mammals and lizards. It stops blood clotting, rapidly drops blood pressure and heightens the feeling of bite pain. They assume that lizard venom may have gone unnoticed for so long because it is not...

A Novel Method For Measuring Interstitial Fluid Pressure In Cancer Tissues

...uthors compared IFP in skin melanoma grafts in NG2 knockout and wild-type mice. Knocking out NG2 proteoglycan on vasculogenic and angiogenic pericytes was found to reduce interstitial fluid pressure in melanoma. This study also demonstrates that IFP is elevated in skin melanoma. The simplified IFP measureme...
