Researchers Discover How Cancer Evades the Immune System

... cells, and over-production of B7-H4, a gene whose protein product inhibits immune activation. The human colorectal cancers, however, showed variations in their immune signatures, which researchers saw as an indication of the need to understand the signature for each patient's individual cancer. "I see ...

Structure of TB Enzyme Points the Way to New Drugs: Study

...ase. The Swiss team first identified the enzyme, protein kinase G (PknG), as a promising drug target back in 2004. At the time, they said that the protein is the secret weapon that enables the TB bug, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, to avoid being hunted down...

Blood Protein may Hold Key to Why Healthy People Get Heart Attacks

Boffins have identified a blood protein myeloperoxidase (MPO) secreted by white blood cells, that both signals inflammation and releases a bleach-like substance that damages the cardiovascular system, which might be a clue to why apparently healthy persons could be at high risk of heart a...

Alternative Splicing in Neuronal Development

...ternative splicing. Polypyrimidine-tract binding protein (PTB) is a well-known inhibitor of alternative splicing in various cell types. A neuronal version of PTB - called nPTB - is expressed solely in nerve cells, but its function has remained elusive. Dr. Black and colleagues now show that a switch in e...

Gene Variation Increases the Risk of Lung Cancer

... researchers said. According to Engels, the IL1B protein is an integral part of the chemical cascade by which cell signals moderate the response to inflammation. Variations in the gene may lead to greater expression of the protein, which is more likely to turn on the cascade and sustain the damaging effect...

A team of researchers led by Jose Saenz screened 14,400 small molecules for compounds that could halt this journey without disrupting normal cell function. According to New Scientist magazine, the researchers' work led to the identif...

Lab Tests Throw Up New Path for Parkinson's

Finnish doctors say they have identified a new protein that, in rats, rescues brain cells whose death causes Parkinson's disease , the tragic degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. The new molecule, called conserved dopamine neurotrophic factor (CDNF), prevents the degeneration of cells t...
