Mayo Clinic Researchers Create 'Obedient Virus'; First Step To Use Measles Virus Against Cancer

... instead of its natural binding partner. Then they invented a "molecular tag" that they attached to structures on the outside of the cancer-seeking measles virus. This tag is the key innovation of their work and central to the success of the team's investigation. It enables researchers to grow retargeted meas...

First frozen egg baby born in Canada

... of the patient is drawn into a protective device, invented by Drs. Chian and Tan, called a "Cryoleaf", and then placed in a special vitrification solution. The eggs undergo super-rapid cooling at a rate of more than 20,000ºC per minute, which prevents ice crystal formation and increases egg survival to appro...

Novel gene-silencing nanoparticles shown to inhibit Ewing's sarcoma

...the scientists employed a sugar-containing polymer invented by chemical engineers at the California Institute of Technology. For this experiment, the polymer binds to and condenses the engineered siRNA into nanoparticles that, in effect, form a protective shield around their precious genetic cargo. These nano...

Researchers discover key to human embryonic stem-cell potential

...h and Young labs. Using a microarray technology invented in the Young lab, Boyer and her colleagues analyzed the entire genome of a human embryonic stem cell and identified the genes regulated by these three transcription factors. The research team discovered that while these transcription factors activate...

Wright bros. upstaged! Dinos invented biplanes

...said Chatterjee. "It seems likely that Microraptor invented the biplane 125 million years before the Wright 1903 Flyer." The discovery of Microraptor and other small, exquisitely preserved feathered dinosaurs from China also helps to settle a century-old controversy over whether avian flight began in trees (...

...o acids long."The method Neduva and his colleagues invented draws on large-scale studies of protein binding in the cells of yeast, flies, worms and humans. Those studies have produced parts lists of molecular machines. And the data holds a wealth of information about linear motifs ?if it can be mined. The sc...

Researchers make long DNA 'wires' for future medical and electronic devices

Ohio State University researchers have invented a process for uncoiling long strands of DNA and forming them into precise patterns. Ultimately, these DNA strands could act as wires in biologically based electronics and medical devices, said L. James Lee, professor of chemical and biomolecular eng...

Technique offers new view of dynamic biological landscape

...te deletion would kill the cell -- the researchers invented a high throughput technique to manipulate the half-life of their messenger RNA (mRNA). Since mRNA is a genetic intermediate during the conversion of a gene to protein, reducing its lifespan by mutating the mRNA message lowers the amount of protein th...

Researchers develop new method to help find deadly malaria parasite's Achilles heel

Plotkin, M.D., all of whom led laboratory studies of the vaccine at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and The Wistar Institute between 1980 and ...

New drug could reduce tissue damage after heart attack

... is thus critically important. "We had previously invented a new mechanism of drug action for small molecules bound by target proteins. Coupled with knowledge of the structure and properties of CRP, we were able to design the CRP inhibitor. "We now propose to develop a CRP inhibitor as rapidly as possible ...

Junk DNA may not be so junky after all

...nstitute of Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins have invented a cost-effective and highly efficient way of analyzing what many have termed "junk" DNA and identified regions critical for controlling gene function. And they have found that these control regions from different species don't have to look alike to w...
