Polymer gel can block toxic leakage problem in gene therapy

... admit that," he said. "Nobody in the gene therapy field would believe this was happening." The study also pinpointed the routes for the viral escapes. Those particles were escaping from the tumor area into the bloodstream through rifts in tiny tumor blood vessels created by damage from the injection need...

Team led by Carnegie Mellon University scientist finds first evidence of a living memory trace

...ontext," said Galán. "All previous studies in this field have observed only a sustained, non-specific increase in neural activity after a living animal is repeatedly exposed to a stimulus. These investigations haven't retrieved a signature of a stimulus, whereas we have." The experiments were performed i...

Molecular research suggest shift needed in how some drugs are created

...rogrammed cell death. "It has been thought in the field that a death domain is a death domain, and molecular recognition takes place in the same fashion," said lead author Michael V. Lasker, an M.D./Ph.D. student in the College of Medicine at Urbana-Champaign. "But the crystal structure of our death domai...

Islands in the Genome Promote Speciation

"They are essentially asking the very questions about epistatic interactions that E-MAPs can answer. They want to know whether if they in...

Twin molecular scissors link creation of microRNAs with gene-silencing

...t miRNAs, clearly important players on the genetic field despite having gone unnoticed for so long. How are they produced? And how do they work? In a series of studies published over the past year, a research team at The Wistar Institute has provided considerable insight into the world of miRNAs. In their...
