Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

... disease-slowing and prevention therapies, and the identification of patients and at-risk people most likely to benefit from those treatments,” said Dr. Eric Reiman, the study’s first author and Executive Director of the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute. After finding an association between a form of the GAB2 gene a...

New bacterium discovered -- related to cause of trench fever

... the infection was seen in the AIDS patients. This identification was published in “The New England Journal of Medicine” in 1997. Koehler’s research group found that all pet cats of AIDS patients infected by B. henselae also had the infection in their blood. In fact, about 41 percent of all the pet cats they t...

Newly identified mechanism for silencing genes points to possible anti-cancer strategies

...nd the University of California, San Diego, report identification of an important new gene-silencing mechanism, one that blocks the cellular machinery responsible for translating messenger RNA into proteins at specific genes. The findings suggests that small bits of RNA known as microRNAs, known to help regulat...

Cornell lab confirms deadly fish virus spreading to new species

...cts Laboratory (FPL). The research, entailing the identification of numerous genes in P. stipitis responsible for its fermenting and cellulose-bioconverting prowess, and an analysis of these metabolic pathways, is featured in the March 4 advanced online publication of Nature Biotechnology. P. stipitis is the mos...

Heart failure: Intervention possibilities from imaging programmed cell loss

...id of unneeded or abnormal cells—may help in early identification of those individuals who are at risk of developing heart failure, say researchers in the April Journal of Nuclear Medicine. "Our study indicates that it is feasible to noninvasively identify cell loss—or apoptosis—in heart failure patients using ann...

Beyond the DNA: Chemical signatures reveal genetic switches in the genome

Researchers find gene mutation that causes infertility in male mice

... the promise of new hope with Cornell researchers' identification of a mutation in a gene that causes male infertility in mice. Because this is the first time that a dominant mutation that leads specifically to infertility in a mammal has been discovered, the researchers say they can now look for similar mutations ...

Gene elevating breast cancer risk also causes prostate cancer

...Winqvist, who coordinates the research effort, the identification of these genes may help to clarify the genetic background contributing to breast cancer and suggest novel pharmaceutical targets. It could also lead to genetic screening that identifies individuals at increased breast cancer risk and result in improv...

New mechanism for nutrient uptake discovered
