Deficient DNA Repair Capacity Associated With Increased Risk Of Breast Cancer

... of DNA damage and accelerates the genetic changes involved in carcinogenesis. To evaluate whether reduced DNA repair capacity in the nucleotide excision pathway that fixes DNA alterations known as bulky DNA adducts is associated with breast cancer risk, Regina M. Santella, Ph.D., of the Columbia University ...

Genes In The Interferon System Important In Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

...rswho claimed that the interferon system, which is involved in the body'sdefense against viruses, etc., was also behind the autoimmune diseaseSLE. Since then they have shown the importance of the interferon systemin a number of works. This has led to the recognition of theirhypothesis in the last year, and to...

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

...gned to find out whether the loss of imprinting is involved in cancer's development or just in its progression. "Most researchers, 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 ca...

Newly-discovered class of genes determines ?and restricts ?stem cell fate

...origin for a number of tumors. Pax3 is known to be involved in some tumors, which adds evidence to the stem-cell origin for some cancers. This theory proposes that many cancers may arise from normally scarce resident stem cells that grow uncontrollably, rather than from the vast majority of differentiated cel...

Plants, animals share molecular growth mechanisms
