Promise for Soya Allergy Sufferers

...wever, because of public resistance to genetically modified products researchers have been seeking a more traditional approach. Because the newly identified lines occur naturally, they can be successfully crossed into other soybean lines ‘without any biotechnology-derived component,’ the researchers noted. ...

Mice Aids in Shedding Light on Origin of Autism

Researchers have genetically modified mice in a study that would help to better understand autism and its genetic origins//. The research team was from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre in Dallas, led by Luis Parada. The results of the research were published in the ...

Research Throws Light On Regeneration of Hearing Cells

... cell cycle in hair cells. They used a genetically modified mouse strain in which Rb was no longer made in the inner ear. By examining the inner ears of mouse embryos – that strain did not survive past birth – the researchers found more hair cells in the knockout mice than in the ears of normal mice at the sa...

University Envisages Improvements in Artificial Arm

...lt-pack computer. The interface device would use a modified Utah Electrode Array, a pill-sized device containing 100 tiny electrodes that was developed by University of Utah bioengineering Professor Richard Normann. If this device gets selected for the bionic arm, electrode arrays will be implanted in some ...

Cholesterol Plays An Important Role In Finger and Toe Development

There is light at the end of the blind tunnel: prosthetic retinal cells offer hope!

...re-engineering retinal interneurons as genetically modified 'prosthetic' cells.” Still the researchers said that they have not yet determined whether the light signals reaching the visual cortex could be interpreted as vision and also the algal protein is less sensitive to light than is the normal light-det...

Rice University wins Prestigious Grants from HHMI

...the students would be taught to create genetically modified yeast, which in turn will produce sufficient enzyme for systematic study. This will be followed by structural studies of the products of these target enzymes with the help of gas- chromatography or other equally cutting-edge techniques. Followed by t...

Understanding Basic Motor Skills

Peppers Kill Prostate Cancer Cells

...the effect of pepper in mice, who were genetically modified to have human prostate cancer cells. The mice were treated to 400 milligrams of capsaicin three times a week equivalent to three and eight fresh habanero peppers. It was found that Capsaicin induced the prostate cancer cells to undergo apoptosis or ...

Large Scale Multiple Sclerosis Vaccine Trial to Be Initiated By PharmaFrontiers

...nown from previous trials that re-injection of the modified T-cells eliminates the damaged nerve cells. In some cases, the immune system also attacks the normal cells, leading to complications. In view of the above drawback, the researchers have been urged to be cautious by MS experts, who point out to othe...

Non-Coding RNA Vital For Gene Activation And Protein Expression

...tion of the Ubx gene. The function of cells can be modified by transgenic transcription of non-coding TRE RNA. Non-coding RNAs have been regarded to be inert, having a limited role in inducing expression or activation of genes followed by protein expression. The present research has highlighted that non-cod...

HIV combater available at home: yogurt!

... Professor Bharat Ramratnam, led the research and modified the bacteria to create cyanovirin -- a protein that protects the body from infection by micro organisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. "One of the major hurdles in this area has been to be able to show that you can actually take these bacteri...

Cardiac Aging Can Be Contained

...to counteract this. The aging mechanism can now be modified as it is now being properly defined. Cardiac aging is in effect restricted by a low calorie diet, as it has been proved by the six-year experiment, which included a traditional Mediterranean diet comprised of fruit, vegetables, fish, beans, whole gra...

India set to become the global knowledge hub
