A Better Understanding Of The Brain Network

...echnology may help people suffering from paralysis reprogram their brains to improve motor skills, say researchers // according to findings of a recent study . Functional magnetic resonance imaging and a "cyberglove" record brain changes during motor activities and allow patients to redirect motor commands. S...

Genetic failure in cloned animals

...y exact copy of that animal -- does not adequately reprogram the genes for proper development. In other words, the cloned animals showed genetic defects because the procedure does not replicate normal reproduction, Jaenisch said, although it is not yet understood how cloning interferes with the reprogramming p...

A Settlement Over Stem Cell Controversy Through Scientific Research

Environmental Toxin Causes Heritable Adult-Onset Diseases

...inding that an environmental toxin can permanently reprogram a heritable trait also may alter our concept of evolutionary biology. Traditional evolutionary theory maintains that the environment is primarily a backdrop on which selection takes place, and that differences between individuals arise from random mu...

Durable Critters Provides Better Way to Human Egg Preservation

...r embryonic stem cells, he says. Eggs, which can reprogram cell function by turning genes off and on, can produce cells that can become essentially anything, Dr. Eroglu says. If he can better understand how they do this, regular body cells might be reprogrammed in a test tube to embryonic-like stem cells for...

Researchers Explore the Effect of Engineered Immune Cells on HIV

...– to create B lymphocytes. The researchers want to reprogram these bone marrow cells by adding genes that will instruct the cells to produce rare antibodies such as B12, 4E10, 2G12 and 2F5. Wang says these antibodies are known to neutralize the virus. "In laboratory tests, we remove harmful genes coding for ...

UCSF Brain Tumor Vaccine Trial Shows Promising Results

...the patient’s particular cancer and is designed to reprogram the body’s immune system to target only cancer cells bearing this fingerprint. The vaccine is intended to leave healthy tissue unaffected and limit the debilitating side effects typically associated with traditional cancer treatments such as chemothe...

Cancer Cells Reprogram Energy Needs To Grow And Spread

... at Johns Hopkins have found that cancer cells can reprogram themselves to turn down their own energy-making machinery and use less oxygen, and that these changes might help cancer cells survive and spread. The Hopkins scientists report that the loss of a single gene in kidney cancer cells causes them to st...

Key Mechanism to Emergence of Strep Bacteria

...one. Just like a computer virus might come in and reprogram your hard drive, this virus reprogrammed the genetic machinery of the M1T1 strep into a more virulent form, said senior author Victor Nizet, M.D., UCSD Professor of Pediatrics and Pharmacy. The consequences of this event on human health are still b...

Insight Into Neural Stem Cells Has Implications For Designing Therapies

...st not going to be the case unless we find ways to reprogram these cells genetically." The insight, says Merkle, is a key step toward understanding the molecular mechanisms of neural stem cell potential. "Now you could compare adult stem cells in different regions at the genetic level. Since different neural...
