DNA Molecules Used To Assemble Nanoparticles

...researchers can track their movement. A series of experiments using cell sorters, 3-D microscopes and other tools verified that these dendrimers hit their targets, were admitted into the cells and gave off their signaling light. The self-assembled dendrimer clusters were shown to be well formed and functional. ...

It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

In experiments with mice, a team of scientists from the United St...ng of IGF2 and colon cancer in people, the current experiments were designed to find out whether the loss of imprinting is involved in cancer's development or just...

Controversial drug shown to act on brain protein to cut alcohol use

... and Research Center have nowshown definitively in experiments with mice and rats that Ibogaine doesreduce alcohol consumption, and they have determined that it does so byincreasing the level of a brain protein known as glial cellline-derived neurotrophic factor, or GDNF. In a separate study, theydemonstrated th...

...oid plaques poison the transport machinery. If the experiments do, indeed, confirm the predictions of the transport hypothesis, then neuronal cultures could prove valuable in testing diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, said Goldstein. The researchers are also analyzing more brain tissue samples from humans w...

Purdue proves concept of using nano-materials for drug discovery

...he chips could dramatically increase the number of experiments that are possible with a small amount of protein. "It's been very hard to study these proteins because they are difficult to produce in large quantities," Lee said.

Vital step in cellular migration described by UCSD medical researchers

...l, to maintain directional movement. In laboratory experiments with human and animal cells, the UCSD team discovered that the alpha4 integrin recruits enzymes that block Rac activity only at the rear of a crawling cell. The scientists noted that alpha4 integrins are widely expressed in neural crest cells, immun...

In recent experiments with a small number of rats that had a type of brain cancer called 9L-gliosarcoma, PEBBLE-based treatment significantly increased survival time. People who get that type of cancer usually live less than four months without treatment; rats die within ...
