Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

... Banner Alzheimer’s Institute. After finding an association between a form of the GAB2 gene and Alzheimer’s disease in three separate groups, the researchers showed that the GAB2 gene is unusually active in vulnerable brain cells from Alzheimer’s patients and that the GAB2 protein produced by this gene is pre...

In nature, proteins sweep up nanoparticles

...tact with it. But in this case, we see an intimate association of proteins and minerals that takes place as far as hundreds of microns away from the cell.” In other words, in addition to pumping nano-sized sulfide waste particles into the environment, bacteria also pump proteins into the environment. These pr...

The following is the full text of the AAAS statement: "The President has again vetoed the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act, which would expand federal support for embryonic stem cell research. AAAS, the world's largest gene...

First confirmed common genetic risk factors for breast cancer

...l team of scientists who conducted the genome-wide association study report that these five genes code for proteins crucial to biological activities that previously had not been implicated as triggers of breast cancer. The genes carry the DNA recipes for proteins important to the growth and duplication of body ...

The quality and quantity of the call are tightly associated with the nature of the interaction itself." As the mice neared sexual maturity, the genetic influence on social behavior ebbed ...

Out-of-body experiences may be caused by arousal system disturbances in brain

Scripps research study shows humans and plants share common regulatory pathway

...etween Nod1 and plant R protein pathways. "The association of Nod1 with SGT1 and the COP9 complex suggests that one possible role of SGT1 could be to target resistance-regulating proteins for degradation," he added. "In this hypothesis, the target protein would be a negative regulator of immune responses." ...

New player in commitment to life as a fat cell

...irst authors. "This enzyme was originally known in association with the catabolism of purines into uric acid, the production of reactive oxygen species, and its involvement in gout. It has never been looked at in the context of fat development before." The findings further suggest that adipose-tissue XOR may ...

Genetic pathways to curable and incurable forms of pancreatic cancer identified

...udies by researchers in Boston also found the same association between Kras and p16. From studies of human cancers, it is known that mutations in Dpc4 can also occur, but they do so late in the course of disease progression. The current study showed that the combination of Kras and an early mutation of Dcp4, in ...
