Mitochondrial DNA mutations play significant role in prostate cancer

...ausally related to prostatecancer, the researchers introduced into a prostate cancer cell linemtDNAs harboring a known disease-causing mtDNA mutation and, as acontrol, the same mtDNA but without the disease mutation. They theninjected these modified prostate cancer cells into mice to assess theirtumor-forming a...

Silence the gene, save the cell: RNA interference as promising therapy for ALS

...ence a gene, short bits of double-stranded RNA are introduced in the cell, where they bind with matching sections of messenger RNA. The cell identifies the resulting messenger RNA strand as faulty and chops it up. As a result, the genetic blueprint isn't delivered and the protein never gets made. "Gene silenci...
