New potential drug target in tuberculosis

...way. Unlike other organisms M. tuberculosis has no backup mechanism that could take over LipB's role. This means that an inhibitor blocking its active site would shut down key processes the bacterium needs to survive and replicate. This would be a very effective strategy for a drug." The scientists will no...

Bacteria that cause tooth decay able to survive without important biochemical pathway

... resulting from their own metabolism, suggesting a backup pathway was in place. But, like goldfish dropped in new water, the altered bacteria could not contend with sudden environmental change. When artificially shocked with acid to a pH below that where tooth demineralization begins, the altered bacteria...

Compound from marine bacteria shows potential as multiple myeloma therapy

.... With their proteasome jammed, cells die from the backup of damaged proteins. "Proteasome inhibition is a key therapeutic target and bortezomib (Velcade tm) was the first in a new class of compounds in multiple myeloma. NPI-0052 is a novel proteasome inhibitor with a chemical structure and action that is...

The shape of things to come: Morphology database going global

Cancer related gene p53 not regulated as indicated by previous tissue culture research

...too severe for the breaks to be repaired, critical backup protection, also governed by the p53 tumor suppressor protein, kicks in. It initiates the process of programmed cell death, or apoptosis, which directs the cell to commit suicide, permanently removing the damaged DNA from the organism. Since the p53...
