Improved statistical tools reveal many linked loci
...essure or cell growth. The new statistical method bypasses
the previously overwhelming computations needed to puzzle together the myriad elements that influence gene expression throughout an entire genome. And unlike earlier approaches to understanding how multiple loci interact, the new technique can distin...
Artificial cornea offers better results for infants, some blind patients
...ea, known as a keratoprosthesis or a "K-Pro," that bypasses
some of the problems that come about with natural tissue. Aquavella himself stopped doing procedures with artificial implants for several years because of the poor results and high rates of complication. Meanwhile, Aquavella's former mentor, Claes...
Protein averts cell suicide but might contribute to cancer
...cause the DNA is not replicated. "This protein bypasses
the damage and saves cells from self-destructing, but it is very error prone, which suggests that it may also play a role in cancer." Dpo4 is one of a family of enzymes called Y-family DNA polymerases that were first discovered about 10 years ago...
Major gene study uncovers secrets of leukemia
..., causing ALL. "If we could design a drug that bypasses
the roadblock to differentiation, we could push these cells to become fully mature B lymphocytes," Downing said. "And then the body would recognize them as defective B lymphocytes and destroy them." ...
Cells re-energize to come back from the brink of death
...stand how a cancer cell without caspase activation bypasses
CICD as well,” Green said. The St. Jude team discovered that a cell that lacks caspase activation and cannot undergo apoptosis increases the levels of an enzyme called GAPDH in order to counteract CICD. GAPDH appears to prevent CICD by supportin...
