Carnegie Mellon scientists find key HIV protein makes cell membranes bend more easily

...uture computer simulations of HIV dynamics to help further drug discovery and prevent deadly infections. “We found that HIV fusion peptide dramatically decreases the amount of energy needed to bend a cell-like membrane,” said Stephanie Tristram-Nagle, associate research professor of biological physics at Ca...

Common cancer gene sends death order to tiny killer

...d p53, but fewer were killed in cells lacking p53, further suggesting that this microRNA gets its kill orders from p53. When researchers examined pancreatic cancer cells known to contain damaged or missing p53, they found that those cells had limited or zero miR-34a. "With no p53 gene or miR-34a to st...

Blood test may help signal tumor's remission, return in throat cancer patients

...not to throat cancer; therefore, they caution that further studies are needed in larger groups of patients to confirm if this could be a useful tool to monitor for cancer, infection, or other complications. In addition, because IL-6, IL-8, VEGF, and HGF have been detected in the blood of patients with breast...

These results and further data reported in the study establish that B and T cell responses to antigens occur in utero following maternal vaccination against influenza, supporting the theory that the human neonatal immune system is not deficient or incompetent but, rather, cap...

The DNA further suggests that no later than forty thousand years ago, one of the groups died out, leaving only the second alive at the time of the mammoth’s last gasp. “At a time when we should be very concerned about the potential extinction of many existing lar...

New study finds genetically engineered crops could play a role in sustainable agriculture

Penn researchers link cell's protein recycling systems

...ing old, damaged proteins. The researchers suggest further that when proteasomes are impaired or overwhelmed, which leads to accumulation of defective proteins, HDAC6 facilitates delivery to the autophagy-lysosomal system for degradation. “That’s how we think HDAC6 links the two systems,” says Taylor.
