CSHL research ties harmless viruses to cancer

... that have been considered harmless to chromosomal instability (CIN) and cancer. "If the model that we propose is correct, protecting the body against viruses, or preventing the cell fusion that they cause may decrease the frequency of cancers and prevent their progression," said CSHL’s lead investigator Yuri L...

Cracking the egg

... pathway. But at the same time there's evidence of instability in other areas. According to Dr. Evsikov, "There's tantalizing evidence for rapid change in a few critical mammalian genes specifically expressed in eggs. These fast-paced changes may pinpoint the molecular mechanisms for reproductive isolation, a ...

Regulating the nuclear architecture of the cell

...chromatin could be one cause of the rampant genome instability observed in cancer. Beyond these specific pathways, we're interested in the larger question of how such pathways affect the organization of the chromosomes in the cell nucleus." ...

OHSU study says stem cell 'fusion' occurs in tumors

... is one explanation for how tumors acquire genetic instability and have the potential to give rise to malignant cancer. One promising result could be in better understanding the careful balance between rapid and effective regeneration after tissue injury, and minimizing the risk of cancer. This balance can be e...

The shape of life: research sheds light on how cells take shape

...olved the mystery. Chemical bonding and mechanical instability were responsible for the stripes. In the first stage of the process, the microtubules line up uniformly, like pickets in a fence. As the microtubules continue to grow, they clump together in bundles of 200 to 300. Then these bundles buckle. Valles ...

Tiny airborne particles are a major cause of climate change

... atmosphere. This combination prevents atmospheric instability ?the condition needed to form clouds and rain. A stable atmosphere means fewer clouds; fewer clouds mean less reflection of sunlight; less reflection of sunlight and absorption of radiation lead to warming. Policy makers have argued that, in the bo...

Pennsylvania researchers find liver transplants provide metabolic cure for rare genetic disease

...n sudden death. Over a patient's lifetime, chronic instability of blood amino acids can result in serious learning disabilities and mental illness. Before transplant, the only treatment was strict adherence to a diet almost devoid of protein. Despite adherence to this diet, patients were still at risk of metabo...

Mayo Clinic collaboration discovers protein amplifies DNA injury signals

... response pathway makes the gene unstable. Genomic instability is the driving force in tumor formation, which is why cancer researchers around the world are focusing on understanding the DNA damage response pathway. Knowing how the cell communicates DNA injury to alert the repair system is an important first ste...

World-first technology enables study of ancient bacteria

...the Bermuda Triangle becomes unstable; this causes instability of the sea and an explosive mixture of air and methane above. Any ships or planes travelling over the area could sink or catch fire. "So ancient, deep-sediment bacteria may be a key to sustainable energy in the future and to explaining a few disaste...

Cooperation is key—a new way of looking at MicroRNA and how it controls gene expression

... unstable and prone to degradation. This inherent instability is built into the 3' tail of the mRNA in the form of noncoding stretches of RNA called AU-rich elements. Lots of genes, including inflammatory cytokines and cancer-causing oncogenes, have these AU-rich elements built in. AU-rich element degradation ...

Yeast Network Prevents Damage By Oxygen Radicals
