Same mutation aided evolution in many fish species, Stanford study finds

...in mice similar alterations can also be created by defects in any one of three different genes. "Based on the mouse work you'd predict we would find mutations in any of the three genes in sticklebacks," said Kingsley, who is also a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. "That's not what we see." Inst...

Beyond lithium for bipolar disorder

...ich the gene is knocked out show hyperactivity and defects in their circadian (day-night) behavior--both also characteristic of humans with bipolar disorder. Also, in animals, lithium has been shown to affect such circadian behavior. The protein also has been found to affect the activity of a key neurotransm...

NJIT Presidential Award winner takes stem cell research another step

Those findings suggested that nitric oxide defects might play a role in the cardiovascular side effects of many disorders, including diabetes, heart attacks, septic shock and sickle cell disease. In the current study, the researchers found that hemoglobin in the red cells of patients with sickle cel...

Gene therapy promising for growing tooth-supporting bone

...bone morphogenetic protein-7 (BMP-7) to large bone defects in rats in an attempt to turn on the body's own bone growth mechanisms. The study showed that animals that got the BMP-7 treatment produced nearly 50 percent more supporting bone around dental implants than those receiving the conventional treatment....

Cerebral navigation: How do nerve fibers know what direction to grow in?

...signal, the mice had abnormal axon projections and defects in neural circuitry formation. The second paper demonstrates the role of a protein called ephexin1 in axon guidance. By itself, ephexin 1 promotes axon growth; neurons from mice genetically modified to lack ephexin1 had significantly shorter axons. ...
