It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

...rs, including me, expect epigenetic differences to influence progression -- whether a tumor would grow slowly or quickly, or whether it would spread," says Feinberg. "But, in this case, our results show that loss of imprinting of IGF2 contributes to colon cancer's development in the mice. It doesn't cause tumo...

Research on Worms Yields Clues on Aging

...ticonvulsants may affect aging partly throughtheir influence on the neural system involved in the insulin signalingpathway and partly through an independent mechanism, according toKornfeld."Our experiments show there is an important connection between neuralfunction and longevity," Kornfeld says.

Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

...r protein. Histone acetylation was long thought to influence transcription by regulating the structure and function of chromatin, which is an assembly of proteins (mostly histones) and DNA. Another, more widely accepted model proposes that histone acetylation controls transcription by recruiting cofactors requ...
