Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer

...took the damaged DNA molecule and inserted it into mammalian kidney cells to see if it would replicate, and it did. The mutations seen in the study are similar to those known to cause an inherited form of colon cancer. The investigators conclude chronic inflammation causes genetic abnormalities that might lea...

Scientists have not only identified the gene responsible for the progeria syndrome, but they have developed a process to rev...

New medicine for ovarian cancer

...ls.//The new medication targets an enzyme known as mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). The drug stopped the cells so that they cannot divide anymore or move o a different location and spread the cancer. The drug also reduces the cells ability to get nourishment from the blood vessels by a process called angi...

Cholesterol Mystery Solved By Nobel Laureates

...eedback response. They create mice lacking the two mammalian Insig genes -– Insig1 or Insig2 in the liver. On a normal chow diet, the mice over accumulate cholesterol and fats in the liver, but levels of SREBP's and other SREBP target genes (molecules that sense cholesterol and regulate its synthesis) were not...

Citrinin, a fungal toxin, induces apoptosis via mitochondrial pathway

... is known to be cytotoxic and genotoxic to various mammalian cells. CTN has been suggested as a causative factor in renal disease among poultry, pigs, dogs and rats. Many fungal toxins, including ochratoxin A, trichothecene, fumonisin B1, are known to trigger cellular apoptosis, which is a highly regulated ce...

Inactivation of Rad9 in Tumor Cells Would Be Advantageous In Cancer Therapy

...arnes-Jewish Hospital said that // inactivation of mammalian Rad9 in Tumor Cells Would Be Advantageous In Cancer Therapy. Rad9 checks for DNA damage, and fixes dangerous breaks in the DNA double helix. It is active in telomeres which are the protective ends of chromosomes. Hence Rad9 has gained a lot of im...

Switching Off Protein Could Play Key Role In Success Of Radiation Therapy For Cancer

Switching off a mammalian protein called Rad9 could hold the key to killing cancer cells easily with ionizing radiation, according to new research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Rad9 was previously thought // to be a "watchman" for DNA, but it is n...

Scientist Optimistic In Breakthrough For Causes Of Neurodegenerative Diseases

...are from the most detailed proteomic analysis of a mammalian brain to date – that is, a survey of nearly 8,000 different, detectable proteins in the mouse brain. The research suggests that many neurodegenerative diseases leave a biochemical calling card, or biomarker, that could be used to predict the earliest...

Renewable Oocytes of Mice created hope in Human Fertility Treatment
