Imaging Lymph Nodes with Nanoparticles

...cles contain a centralsuperparamagnetic iron oxide core and are covered by dextran, impartinglong circulation times and biocompatibility. When injectedintravenously, the nanoparticles localize to lymphoid tissue, and areinternalized into macrophages. There is then a decrease in signalintensity on T2- and ...

An HIV Protein Plays a Surprising Role in Gene Activation

...iption factors were “virtually undetectable?at the core promoter in the absence of Tat. Adding Tat recruited all the usual transcription factors to the promoter and increased transcription. But none of the TAFs that normally associate with TFIID were found. When the authors used the activator Gal4-VP16 to...

...ent release. "These findings question one of the core tenets of synaptic function and reveal significant complexity in organization of synaptic vesicles within individual synapses," said Dr. Ege Kavalali, assistant professor in the Center for Basic Neuroscience and of physiology at UT Southwestern and s...

First-ever Compounds To Target Only Metastatic Cells Are Highly Effective Against Breast, Prostate, And Colon Cancers

..., "and what we ended up with were two compounds -- core macroketone and core macrolactam -- that are about 1,000 times more powerful at inhibiting cancer cell migration." In fa...

Study shows nanoshells ideal as chemical nanosensors

... of a virus. They are ball-shaped and consist of a core ofnon-conducting glass that is covered by a metallic shell, typicallyeither gold or silver. The metal shell "captures" passing light andfocuses it, a property that directly leads to the enormous Ramanenhancements observed. Furthermore, nanoshells can...

Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

Multiple Campylobacter Genomes Sequenced

...detailed comparative genomic analysis provides the core blueprint for this important family of human pathogens. And in doing so, it lays the foundation for the development of new ways to monitor and control Campylobacter in the food chain and in human infection. ...

Wisconsin researchers identify sleep gene

Zeroing in on the core cellular mechanisms of sleep, researchers at University of Wisconsin Medical School have identified for the first time a single gene mutation that has a powerful effect on the amount of time fruit flies sleep. In its normal state, the Drosophila (fr...

Nanoscale Diagnostic Sets Sights on Alzheimer's

Histone modifications affect gene activity and include methylation, in which a methyl component is attached t...

Biochemists report discovery of structure of major piece of telomerase; implications for cancer

...that is required for telomerase activity, at whose core three strands of RNA come together to form a triple helix. All vertebrate animals investigated so far have nearly the identical sequence of nucleotides through the triple helix, Theimer said. "The triple helical structure of the pseudoknot must be si...
