We wanted to see if we could combine the safe and easy-to-use qualities of live adenovirus vaccine with the versatility of recombinant adenovirus virus vaccines that are being developed.?/p> Specifically, Dr. Ketner and his colleagues hope to develop a vaccine for human papillomavir...

Jefferson Virologists Coax HIV Out of Hiding

...says, referring to this approach . “We may have to combine IL-2 withIL-7 and other agents to get to the reservoirs of virus.?...

Asthma gene clusters identified

... profiles. Now, in computational medicine, we will combine all of our clinical knowledge of disease with information from genetic and genomic data analyses. This, in turn, will lead to customized care based on a patient's personal needs," according to Bruce Aronow, PhD, co-director of the CMC and co-author o...

Molecular Motors Cooperate In Moving Cellular Cargo, Study Shows

...g the peroxisome." In the future, Selvin wants to combine FIONA and an optical trap technique to monitor the speed and direction of a peroxisome, and the force acting upon it. "By measuring force we can determine how many molecular motors are working together," Selvin said. "This will help us further under...

New online portal merges vast data on Gulf of Maine ecosystem

...ng resource managers and scientific researchers to combine and analyze information in unprecedented ways, creating new insights into the Gulf of Maine's ecology. Launched today by the Gulf of Maine Area program of the Census of Marine Life, the Dynamic Atlas of the Gulf of Maine, online at http://gmbis.iris...

Microbial fuel cell: High yield hydrogen source and wastewater cleaner

...cell, where they are electrochemically assisted to combine with the protons and produce hydrogen gas. A voltage in the range of 0.25 volts or more is applied to the circuit by connecting the positive pole of a programmable power supply to the anode and the negative pole to the cathode. The researchers call...

New tumor-suppressor gene discovered

...he two genes have a more powerful effect when they combine to work together in reducing cell proliferation and promoting cell death, so the tissues get much smaller." Lai's lab also performed other experiments that demonstrated that the two protein products of the two genes join structurally at the molecular...

Novel gene-silencing nanoparticles shown to inhibit Ewing's sarcoma

...n many animals," said Hu. Future experiments will combine the novel delivery system with small molecular anti-tumor agents, with hopes of creating a new and effective way to treat Ewing's sarcoma and other tumors in the clinic. "Clinically, Ewing's patients are treated with combination of chemotherapeutic ...

NIAID begins clinical trial of West Nile virus vaccine

...l trials. Called chimeric vaccines, these vaccines combine genes of the West Nile virus with genes of a closely related virus--yellow fever virus in the case of a vaccine developed by Acambis, Cambridge, MA, and dengue virus in the case of a vaccine developed by NIAID intramural researchers. ...

Microarrays as phenotype

...tarvation. The pathway enables the single cells to combine into a multi-cell organism. "We pretended we did not know the order of genes in the pathway," said Shaulsky. "We were able to reconstruct the pathway from the microarray data. This means the microarray provides a good phenotype that is quantitative....

Purdue researchers use enzyme to clip 'DNA wires'

... cytosine, represented as G, A, T and C. The bases combine in numerous sequences, and various restriction enzymes attach to and cut specific sequences, enabling scientists to isolate and snip DNA segments of differing lengths. The enzyme used in the Purdue research cuts segments of DNA containing a sequence ...

NYU, Rockefeller researchers find complexity of regulation by microRNA genes

...cs, where the focus of the research programs is to combine genomic approaches with developmental genetics and evolution to understand how changes in genomes give rise to the diversity of regulatory mechanisms in animals and plants. ...

To translate touch, the brain can quickly rearrange its sense of the body

...nformation from muscles, and so on. The brain must combine all these information inputs to accurately perceive the external world through our body's interaction with it and also to produce a coherent sense of self. Because all these signals carry such different kinds of information, the brain must perform a ...

Gene Bridges And Covalys To Develop Restriction-Enzyme-Free SNAP-tag Gene Fusion Kits

...ing a gene of interest. The new SNAP-tag kits will combine the inherent advantages of BACs with the power of SNAP-tag for protein expression studies." The cloning kits, which will contain validated reference BAC, and substrate for functional testing of the SNAP-tag in the fusion protein, are expected to be ...

Carnegie Mellon University research reveals how cells process large genes

... Big genes are especially challenging because they combine many coding segments (exons) that lie between long stretches of non-coding elements (introns). During processing, introns are snipped out and exons pasted together to form a template for proteins called messenger RNA (mRNA). Mistakes in RNA processin...

Reversal of role for a viral protein associated with the development of lymphoma

... Big genes are especially challenging because they combine many coding segments (exons) that lie between long stretches of non-coding elements (introns). During processing, introns are snipped out and exons pasted together to form a template for proteins called messenger RNA (mRNA). Mistakes in RNA processin...

Investigating 'brain shrinkage' in alcoholics

...sure, withdrawal, nutrition, and the like. When we combine the two approaches, we then have a means of translating knowledge about the change in the condition of the brain from the clinic to the laboratory and back to the clinic." - Both gene and protein changes can occur in the brains of alcoholics. "Even...

Envisat and ERS-2 reveal hidden side of Hurricane Rita

...l surface winds and bands of intense precipitation combine strong updrafts and outflows of moist air at higher altitudes, with energy released as rainy thunderstorms. Envisat carries both optical and radar instruments, enabling researchers to observe high-atmosphere cloud structure and pressure in the visi...

Scientists discover gene that controls speed of tuberculosis development

... of the MUHC. "Academic hospitals such as the MUHC combine scientific research, technology and clinic expertise, enabling scientific breakthroughs to be developed into treatments and cures that directly benefit patients." ...

Nanoscale method for investigating living systems

...es, which in the long run could mean that we could combine optical activity and readout with direct-current recording of cellular activity," says Blick. Because these artificial pores elicit bursts of current in the artificial membranes, the team believes quantum dots could perform similarly in other excitab...
