A common treatment for prostate cancer includeslimiting testosterone synthesis. Patients with mutated androgenreceptors may not ...

Beyond lithium for bipolar disorder

.... However, better treatments for bipolar disorder depend on a better understanding of the still-mysterious mechanism by which lithium damps the highs and lows of the disorder. Now, researchers led by Philip Brandish of Merck & Co., Inc., and Edward Scolnick of the Broad Institute (formerly of Merck and...

Scientists discover that host cell lipids facilitate bacterial movement

...s that inhibited PI3-kinase, proving that Listeria depend on PI3-kinase to move. "Our studies show that Listeria is capable of inside-out signaling," explains Dr. Southwick. "Most signals arise from molecules binding receptors on the outside of the cell. In the case of Listeria, we find that this intracell...

Love at first smell

...owever, it seems that our choice of perfume should depend on our MHC genes. Perhaps these results explain why some perfumes smell good on some people and terrible on others." Professor Thomas Boehm, Max-Plank Society said: "The new results raise the question of whether humans can also gather information ab...

A new study examines how shared pathogens affect host populations

...s, and their transmission rate is often thought to depend on the proportion of hosts or vectors infected (i.e. frequency dependence). A study, to appear in the July 2005 issue of The American Naturalist, by Volker H. W. Rudolf and Janis Antonovics provides an important conceptual counterexample to the idea ...

Variation in women's X chromosomes may explain differences among individuals, between sexes

...on of particular portions of the X chromosome will depend on the number of active genes normally contained within that segment, he explained. The findings also highlight key differences between female and male genomes, according to the researchers. For one thing, women are known to consist of a mosaic of ...

...ell-surface structures. Biofilm formation does not depend on PGA, but other research in Dr. Otto's laboratory has indicated that PGA production is greater when a biofilm is present. Further, Dr. Otto says all 74 strains of S. epidermidis that his group tested also produced PGA, as did six other genetically ...

Iron exporter revealed that may explain common human disorder

... cells remained indirect. To determine which cells depend on ferroportin, the researchers inactivated the protein in mice, both globally and in select tissues. Animals completely lacking ferroportin died early in development due to a failure of iron transfer from mother to embryo. Mice deficient for ferrop...

Solutions that reduce death of marine life reeled in by International Smart Gear Competition

Protein That Promotes Survival Of Stem Cells Might Be Key To Poor Leukemia Prognosis

...ood cells and platelets has now been discovered to depend in large part on a single protein called Mcl-1. This finding, from an investigator at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, is published in the February 18 issue of Science.

The researchers found that their novel drug made contact with transporters slowly ?about 10 times slower than cocaine ?which, they speculate, may be...

Study reveals dramatic difference between breast cancers in US and Africa

...percent of African tumors did. These tumors do not depend on estrogen and thus will not respond to drugs, such as tamoxifen, that prevent estrogen from reaching the cancer cells. -- Third, cancers from African women were slightly less likely to express the cell-surface marker HER2. HER2 is the target for t...

Study uncovers bacteria's worst enemy

Of course, that is highly speculative. It is also conceivable—although in our opinion less likely—that in neocortical...
