Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

...ecules can be modified to include other functional groups that give it additional properties, Sherburn says. For instance, one highly active version of the superbowl molecule goes by the name tetrabromo-superbowl (C268H320O52Br4) due to the addition of four bromine atoms. The bromine atoms make the hole at...

Association of herpesvirus with lung disorder questioned

These data suggest that human herpesvirus 8 infection is not associated with Japanese cases of primary pulmonary hype...

Man and mouse share genome structures

... believes. For example, proteins that place methyl groups on histones can, when mutated, cause leukemia. Bernstein hopes to apply the new technology to characterize chromatin structure in leukemic cells and gain insight into the molecular basis of disease. "The human genome still has many surprises lurking...

Recent breakthroughs in common adult leukemia highlighted in New England Journal of Medicine

...hers at North Shore-LIJ, as well as other research groups in Bethesda, MD, San Diego, CA, and Barcelona, Spain, have identified genetic and protein markers that can predict whether a CLL patient will follow the benign or aggressive course. Some markers are not yet available for clinical use, however accordi...

Male circumcision reduces risk of HIV transmission from women to men

Genome-wide mouse study yields link to human leukemia

...S) to compare methylation patterns among the three groups of mice ?a method of using enzymes and gel electrophoresis to map tiny bits of DNA on a grid. The stretches of DNA, referred to as fragments, show up as smudgy blobs on a test film. If a fragment is dark and definite, it is not methylated. If, on the...

Scientists find missing enzyme for tuberculosis iron scavenging pathway

...oglycoside antibiotics have sugar rings with amino groups attached," explains Dr. Baker. "The N-acetyltransferase chemically modifies the sugar amino group by transferring an acetyl group to it. This inactivates the antibiotic because it can no longer fit into its target." However, in vitro biochemical ass...

Experiments provide proof of how traveling in groups protects insects

... And they can travel a mile or so a day. Why such groups of insects form has mystified humans for thousands of years. One firmly held belief was that God was punishing men and women for their sins. A more recent, scientific theory has been the "safety-in-numbers" idea -- that the small animals congregate p...

Protein Packages Found To Activate Genes; May Be What Regulates Development And Disease

...ost genes, the HOX genes appear to be turned on in groups by massive numbers of tags. HOX genes also are deeply involved in cancer, making the findings particularly important. Some of the proteins that regulate HOX genes are capable of causing or suppressing tumors. Technological breakthrough Bernstein h...
