New binding target for oncogenic viral protein

... death. "These proteins are also some of the most broadly acting cellular oncogenes, and include cyclin E, c-Myc, Notch, and c-Jun," noted Dr. Clurman. "When Fbw7 is mutated in cancers, deregulation of these oncogenic Fbw7 targets is thought to contribute to cancer. SV40 T antigen contains a motif that mimi...

They found the two treatments broadly comparable and suggest that rectal artemether could be used to treat severe malaria where qualified staff and equipment for intravenous therapy is not available. These are encouraging results, say experts in an accompanying editorial. Although a sin...

Scientists identify new model Of NK cell development

... system is made up of lymphocytes, cells that fall broadly into three categories ?T cells, B cells and NK cells. Although all lymphocytes stem from a common source ?progenitor cells in the bone marrow ?they take different paths in developing into full-fighters in the immune system. For example, cells destin...

Achilles heel of the herpes virus possibly found

..., HSV seems to have evolved to take advantage of a broadly present cellular protein that has properties like that of known cellular fusion machinery," says Fuller. "No other virus has been shown to use a cellular fusion protein for entry into cells." She explains that the search for the mechanisms by which ...

Researchers identify genes associated with lung transplant rejection

... in the lung, instead of anti-rejection drugs that broadly compromise the immune system, which are the major tools currently available to fight lung rejection.

Plants have a double line of defence

...hy, in nature, nonhost resistance is a durable and broadly effective defence mechanism. If a building block is missing from one defence layer, its function will be taken over by components of the next layer. Until now, scientists had assumed that nonhost resistance is based more on "passive" mechanisms: for...

...ooks to be an evolutionarily ancient mechanism for broadly repressing and protecting the genome," says Shelley L. Berger, Ph.D., the Hilary Koprowski Professor at The Wistar Institute and senior author on the study. "We believe it to be the first identified mechanism of its kind." The new mechanism centers ...
