W.M. Keck Foundation funds study of friendly microbes

...apidly and accurately classified. A large publicly accessible database will be established that provides detailed molecular information about the gut ecosystem for researchers. A second aspect of the project aims to directly identify the products of bacterial metabolism in the intestine. The goal is to charact...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...on, but most of it stays locked up in minerals, as accessible to microorganisms as the gold in Fort Knox. Bacteria and fungi have learned to scavenge some of this iron by building a trap. They create molecules called siderophores that are able to lock up iron. And in many cases, only the organism that built the...

UCLA Study Shows One-Third of Drug Ads in Medical Journals Do Not Contain References Supporting Medical Claims

Yale Scientists Find MicroRNA Regulates Ras Cancer Gene

...ing five years. The lungs, however, are relatively accessible for inhalation of potential gene therapy agents. "While this is not likely to cure the cancer," said Slack, "after diagnosis, gene therapy with let-7 may be a way to alleviate or slow it down." This work arose from Slack's basic research in the depa...

First 'atlas' of key brain genes could speed research on cancer, neurological diseases

Some researchers focus on the sequences of RNA molecules, while others study their 3-dimensional structures. A major focus of the project will be to integrate the datab...

Self-assembled nano-sized probes allow Penn researchers to see tumors through flesh and skin

...e, as such technology will be less costly and more accessible than MRI-based methods and free of the harmful side effects associated with radioactivity. In this imaging system, the flourophores can also be tuned to respond to different wavelengths of near-infrared light. This sets the stage for using emissive p...
