Common cancer gene sends death order to tiny killer

...to put miR-34a into colon cancer cells. Doing this killed cells that contained p53, but fewer were killed in cells lacking p53, further suggesting that this microRNA gets its kill orders from p53. When r...

Newly found sensing system enables certain bacteria to resist human immune defenses

...soning, skin disorders and toxic shock—avoid being killed by AMPs. AMPs are made by virtually all groups of organisms, including amphibians, insects, several invertebrates and mammals, including humans. “Gram-positive bacteria are major threats to human health, especially due to increasing problems with ...

How 'memory' T cells curb the spread of viruses throughout the body

... “In fact we found that memory CD8 T cells already killed target cells in the lymph node and decreased viral spread to the liver and spleen when the virus just barely started to multiply.” Thus, memory CD8 T cells do not prevent infection; but prevent disease partly because they curb the spread of the vi...

Revealed -- Mosquito genes that could be controlling the spread of killer viruses

...ogen either survives inside the insect body, or is killed by the insect’s defences.” The international research team, led by Imperial PhD student Robert Waterhouse, focused on comparing the immunity genes of the Aedes mosquito with similar groups of genes in the harmless fruit fly and the Anopheles mosqu...

New vaccine prevents CMV infection and disease in mice

...sential genes required for CMV replication, with a killed virus that prompts the body’s B-cells to generate an antibody response. The vaccine contains the DNA of two essential genes that are essential for replication of the virus. These genes – which are also found in other herpes viruses such as chi...

How plague-causing bacteria disarm host defense

...onic plague (also known as the Black Death), which killed more than 200 million people in the Middle Ages. "This bacterial species could still be a threat today," said Navarro, adding that scientists had isolated an antibiotic-resistant strain of this species. In addition Y. pseudotuberculosis and Y. en...

Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin

...ost can be quickly overpowered and, in some cases, killed by the toxin, and C. botulinum has a new food source. "Although in the same group as Clostridium difficile — the Cdiff superbug — C. botulinum has a genome that is remarkable because it is so stable," commented Dr Mohammed Sebaihia, lead author o...

Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with lethal toxin, UF research shows

...ells from reaching the site of infection. Anthrax killed five people in 2001 when letters containing the bacteria's spores were sent through the mail. The UF findings, published last week in the EMBO Journal, may lead to quicker diagnoses for anthrax victims. The disease causes flu-like symptoms that ca...

DNA analysis suggests under-reported kills of threatened whales

Male-killing bacteria makes female butterflies more promiscuous

...ound that when the male insect population drops -- killed off by the bacteria -- the female butterfly becomes more sexually rampant. Males on the other hand show signs of fatigue and put less effort into mating. In some populations of tropical butterfly the entire mating system is determined by a group ...

NIAID DNA vaccine for H5N1 avian influenza enters human trial

... hens' eggs and then administered as a weakened or killed form of the virus, DNA-based vaccines contain only portions of the influenza virus' genetic material. Once inside the body, the DNA instructs human cells to make proteins that act as a vaccine against the virus. VRC Director Gary Nabel, M.D., Ph....
