Man and mouse share genome structures

...ional regions in both the human and mouse genomes, finding similar patterns along equivalent chromosomal regions, even where the underlying DNA sequences are different. Bernstein and Schreiber began to develop the analytical techniques several years earlier, working with the smaller yeast genome. To investi...

A new mechanism of regulating RNA degradation

...he first requirement for using a weapon or tool is finding it. And it is no different for cell biologists and clinicians who want to take control of gene expression in cells to create therapies to treat disease. While cells have a variety of ways to control gene expression, the trick for players in this game...

Spleen may be source of versatile stem cells

...nly during the embryonicdevelopment of mammals.The finding both supports the existence of these splenic stem cells andalso suggests they may be able to produce an even greater variety oftissues. The report appears in the January 19 issue of SAGE KE , an online resource on the science of aging from the publi...

Source of molecular triggers in cutaneous T cell lymphoma identified

...ulating the malignant cells rapidly divide. "This finding has broad implications for the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of CTCL, as well as potentially contributing to the investigation of other types of lymphomas," said Edelson. "It may now be possible to identify specific antigens and target the ...

Enzyme, lost in most mammals, is shown to protect against UV-induced skin cancer

In a finding that broadens our insight intothe cause of certain kinds of UV-induced skin cancer, researchers atErasmus University Medical Center (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) haveemployed an evolutionarily ancient enzyme-repair system to identify theprincipal type...

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

...inking after a period ofabstinence was an exciting finding for us because this is the type ofbehavior in alcoholics for which very few effective drugs exist," Janaksaid.The scientists confirmed in a cell model that Ibogaine stimulated GDNFactivity. Finally, they showed that a known inhibitor of GDNF blockedI...

Plants respond similarly to signals from friends, enemies

...t wants to burrow in and harm the plant. In a new finding published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at North Carolina State University have found that the two strangers communicate with the plant in very similar ways. The plant's responses to both friend and foe are also rema...

Computers to be used to find blueprint for new influenza drug

... successful, we will have taken important steps in finding a new way of fighting influenza and other diseases. It will then be for the pharmaceutical companies to take our blueprint and turn it into a drug.?/p> Professor Williams said that his work is a more sophisticated development from similar modelli...

Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

...origin for thisinteraction at the cell membrane, a finding congruent with the idea ofNedd4 as an agent of endocytosis. Nedd4’s role as a suppressor of Notchwas illustrated even more plainly when the lab showed that inhibitionof Nedd4 results in the upregulation of ligand-independent activationof the Notch pa...

Dentists have a long tradition of finding ways to fill tooth cavities that will not heal on their own, Krebsbach said, and that has led to research in biomaterials, bone and connective tissue function, and then tissue engineering. At Michigan, tissue engineering collaboration includes denti...

Finding Cures For Tropical Diseases: Is Open Source An Answer?

Volunteers could use chat rooms and bulletin boards toannounce discoveries and debate future research directions. Over time,the most dedicated and profi...

Found: Missing sequence of the human Y chromosome

...chromosome.More surprising, however, was Rappold's finding that this "missing"sequence was not unique to the Y chromosome. Rather, this sequenceexhibited between 95-99% homology to sequences on exactly half (11 of22) of the other chromosomes in the human genome, including thepericentromeric regions of autoso...

Antibiotic Resistant Bacterium Uses Sonar-like Strategy to “See?Enemies or Prey

...Reported in the December 24 issue of Science, this finding explains howsome bacteria know when to produce a toxin that makes infection moresevere. It may lead to the design of new toxin inhibitors. “Blocking orinterfering with a bacterium’s “detection?mechanism, should preventtoxin production and limit the s...
