Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...n in the lab, scientists could, in theory, replace dying motor neurons to restore function and alleviate the symptoms of disease or injury. Much sooner in the future, the advance will allow researchers to create motor neuron modeling systems to screen new drugs, says study leader Su-Chun Zhang, an assista...

Scientists discover the cellular roots of graying hair

Low level of extinction during ice age linked to adaptability

...esistant to extinction," he said. "Yet species are dying off at an alarming rate. It may be that humans have altered the environment so much that we are now causing the extinction of species that should be relatively immune.

Scripps research scientists solve structure of a critical innate immune system protein

... Immunology. "All of us in the TLR field have been dying to see the structure of a TLR ectodomain since the innate immune function of TLRs was discovered seven years ago. This will open the way to a great many other studies that will allow us to understand exactly how signaling occurs." Significantly, say...

New protein vital for immune response is found in surprise location

Virologist finds contagious equine flu in dogs

...ality, this is going to result in a number of dogs dying from it." The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta sequenced the virus' entire genome and found all the segments were from the equine virus. This is unusual, because flu viruses will often swap genetic material with other fl...

Energy management in cells may hold key to cancer defense

...rgy regulation is essential for keeping cells from dying off too quickly. The study's results could signal new advances for combating cancerous tumor growth, but also type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Duke Experiments Boost Radiation's Cancer-Killing Effects

...on, said Dewhirst. "HIF-1 assists cancer cells in dying by a process of self-directed suicide called 'apoptosis,'" said Dewhirst. "If HIF-1 is inhibited prior to radiation, it will make the cell less sensitive to apoptosis and will thereby make the tumor cells more resistant to radiation." Moreover, beca...
