Source of molecular triggers in cutaneous T cell lymphoma identified

...ncer Institute first identified CTCL as a separate category of lymphoma thirty years ago. The Yale research group reported that, like all T cells, the cancerous CTCL cells require antigenic stimuli delivered by specialized dendritic cells of the epidermis, referred to as Langerhans cells (LC), in order to re...

New Insights Into HIV Immunity Suggest Alternative Approach to Vaccines

...e disease or other harm. The second immune system category is adaptive B cell immunity, a slower response that creates powerful, pathogen-specific antibodies and provides lasting immunity. The body's normal response to infection is to produce adaptive antibodies that target only the invading virus or other p...

Leprosy microbes lead scientists to immune discovery

...response to the detection of foreign bacteria. One category of defensive cells, macrophages, seek out and engulf the infectious bugs. The other group consists of dendritic, or "antigen-presenting" cells, which seize distinctive pieces of the enemy and use them to "educate" and stir up a second immune response...

Cooperation is key—a new way of looking at MicroRNA and how it controls gene expression

...rs scientists have realized that microRNA is a new category of regulatory molecules and identified hundreds of different microRNA in mammals. The big question was, what are they doing? About a dozen years ago a few studies came out that showed that microRNA could suppress translation in certain Drosophila (f...

"What we have learned over the years is that what you get out of memory depends on how you cue memory. If you have the ...

Seaweed yields new compounds with pharmaceutical potential

...nek said. "It's very unusual. They represent a new category of organic molecules. It's exciting as a biochemist to observe that living organisms have evolved the ability to synthesize such unique and exotic structures compared to other molecules typically produced by seaweeds." The source of these new molecu...

Researchers know what you were about to say; fMRI used to detect memory storage and retrieval
