Agilent Technologies new genome analysis technology set to accelerate Australia fight against mesothelioma

...sually caused by exposure to asbestos. Due to its active mining and manufacturing of asbestos in the mid-1900s, Australia has the highest incidence of mesothelioma in the world. Rates of the disease have tripled in the past 20 years and are expected to peak about 2010. Diagnosis of this type of cancer is d...

Investigating germ cell molecules for contraception is also desirable because it frequently allows reversibility. Hecht and colleagues h...

Master gene controls healing of skin in fruit flies and mammals

...mal embryos. The group also showed that the genes active in the mutant flies' lesions were activated in normal flies in cells surrounding a wound created with a sterile needle. The researchers then worked backward, using bioinformatics--computational analysis of DNA sequences--to identify grainyhead as the...

Two chemicals boost immune cells' ability to fight HIV without gene therapy

...and allows the immune cells to remain youthful and active as they replicate under HIV's attack. Drugs that activate telomerase also offer therapeutic potential for a wide spectrum of degenerative diseases and chronic conditions in which cellular aging plays a role. "I'm really excited by our findings. This...

Miesenböck also says "one could use this method to restore neural signals that have been lost" due to injury or disease, such as in spinal cord trauma, although he notes that the poss...

Young Blood Revives Aging Muscles, Stanford Researchers Find

...e cells that help liver tissue regenerate are less active in older animals, but again the cells responded more robustly when the livers in older mice were bathed in the younger blood. Clearly, something in the youthful blood revived the regenerative cells in muscle and liver. "We need to consider the possi...

Disabling gene defuses rheumatoid arthritis in mice

.... Scientists once thought the cells that were most active in these attacks were adaptive immune cells including T cells. Most of these cells are like guided missiles: they get a fix on a specific target, pursue it and attack it. "Classically, everyone thought that the T cells somehow recognized something s...

Second messenger NAADP shows fast, dose-related impact on satiety cycle

...d adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP), which is active in cells from plants to humans. NAADP is thought to be a so-called "second messenger," because it works from inside cells, rather than externally. However its mode operation remains unknown ?and controversial in several aspects. Results of a new stu...

The molecular targets of many drug candidates are unknown and are often difficult to tease out from among the thousands of gene products found in a typical organism. This “bl...

Whole genome promoter mapping - Human Genome Project v2.0?
