Effect on breast tumors of DNA alternations in 3 genes described

...Similarly, hypermethylation of E-cadherin was more frequent among progestin receptor (PR)-negative cases," said Tao. "Compared to tumors that were both ER- and PR-positive, tumors that were both ER- and PR-negative were more likely to be E-cadherin hypermethylated. "However, hypermethylation of E-cadherin, ...

Scientists uncover new target in cancer mutation puzzle

...ester scientists, while investigating the two most frequent types of mutations in cancer, discovered a possible new route to treatment that would take advantage of the mutations instead of trying to repair them. The research is reported online this week in the journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology...

E. coli bacteria migrating between humans, chimps in Ugandan park

...rticularly in areas where the animals are known to frequent garbage piles near human settlements. But this is the first study to document the exchange of E. coli between humans and chimps in a protected wildlife area.

Overfishing large sharks impacts entire marine ecosystem, shrinks shellfish supply

...ell and hard clams, in the bays and estuaries they frequent during summer and migrate through during fall and spring. In the early 1980s when Peterson sampled bay scallops in North Carolina sounds in late summer before and after the cownose rays passed through, he found that most scallops survived the ray ...

New study: Preterm birth causes one-third of all infant deaths

... classification, premature birth would be the most frequent cause of infant death. More than a half million babies are born too soon each year and the preterm birth rate has increased more than 30 percent since 1981.

Researchers link ocean organisms with increased cloud cover and potential climate change

...o becoming brighter, the clouds can also have less frequent precipitation, so you might have a build-up of clouds. Overall, this makes the atmosphere cloudier and reflects more sunlight back into space." In their paper, the researchers estimated that the isoprene emissions reduced energy absorption in the...

Powerful genome ID method extended to humans

...genomes, in particular, mutate rapidly and contain frequent abnormalities. "That's something that's very hard to detect" by conventional sequencing, Green said, adding that sequencing can simply miss part of a genome. Optical mapping, by contrast, can estimate the absolute length of a genome and quickly...
