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

...satile fashion. With each secretion, the pituitary gland is stimulated to secrete its own messengers, lutenizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), directly into the circulation. In turn, these rising levels of LH and FSH cause the testes and ovaries to produce the sex hormones testostero...

Circles Of DNA Might Help Predict Success Of Stem Cell Transplantation

...d, the more likely it is that the patient's thymus gland can act as an efficient factory where stem cells become T cells. The thymus is an immune system organ behind the breastbone that processes immature "precursor" immune cells into specialized T cells. T lymphocytes are specialized immune cells carryin...

Effective Cancer Treatments Follow The Clock

..., cardiac output, oxygen consumption and endocrine gland secretion. In their experiments, the researchers measured the animals' body weight as an indicator of response to the anti-cancer drug. They discovered that Clock-mutant and Bmal1-knockout mice showed high sensitivity to the drug at any time it was ...

New tool reveals secrets of migrating cells

...id of her studies in the thymus, the immune system gland that weans baby T cells into activated helper, or CD4, cells and killer, or CD8, cells primed for combat with viral invaders. "We were surprised by how rapidly and directly the cells move to their final destination." The technique could allow resear...
