A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty

...ates." Besides learning that GPR54 and KiSS-1 are expressed inside the hypothalamus of primates at the time of puberty, the researchers also found that by giving animals kisspeptin they could, essentially wake up the reproductive hormones from their childhood hibernation. Within 30 minutes of kisspeptin being...

Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

...in living bone, called RANKL and VEGF, were barely expressed around the dead bone. He then modified a harmless virus to carry these genes, devised a method of freeze-drying a paste containing the virus so it could be easily handled, and painted it directly onto a bone graft during surgery. Numerous tests in m...

Vital step in cellular migration described by UCSD medical researchers

... scientists noted that alpha4 integrins are widely expressed in neural crest cells, immune system leukocytes (such as T cells), striated and smooth muscle, and neurons. For this reason, they believe the mechanism used by alpha4 integrins to localize Rac activity may participate in a wide variety of cell migrat...

So far, the researchers have kept the cells alive and thriving for several months and hope to maintain them for up to a year. "We know that ...

Research Using Mouse Models Reveals A Novel Key Player In The Initiation Of Colon Cancer

...n a transcription factor called Foxl1 that is also expressed in the colon, but in a different layer of cells, adjacent to the epithelium, called the mesenchyme. They had seen that mice that are deficient for the Foxl1 protein show a similar accumulation of the beta-catenin protein in the epithelium layer, yet ...
