...lt in the onset of skin cancer.Thus far it was not clear how the two major types of UV-induced DNAlesions ?cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs) and (6-4)photoproducts(6-4PPs) ?contribute to the processes of cell death and cancerformation. Identifying the relative contributions of the two types ofdamage to ...

It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

...n the genetic mutation is present, too, we found a clear cost for what otherwise appears to be a benign effect of extra IGF2." The team's analysis of colon tissue samples from a dozen or so Johns Hopkins patients with suspected colon cancer suggests that IGF2's effect in people may be similar, the researc...

Although it's not clear why losing the armor is a benefit to freshwater fish, Kingsley noted that the unarmored fish are lighter and faster than their more burdened marine cousins. In an effort to learn more about how the armor trait evolves so quickly, Kingsley and his co...
