Deficient DNA Repair Capacity Associated With Increased Risk Of Breast Cancer

...apacity and the need for the development of better laboratory tests for such studies. "When DNA repair capacity can be measured easily and quickly, the scientific community will be able to clearly understand the role of DNA repair capacity in the development of cancer and possibly to develop interventions to re...

Source of molecular triggers in cutaneous T cell lymphoma identified

...arch scientist in dermatology set up a physiologic laboratory system mimicking the tight relationship in vivo between CTCL cells and LC. The research team considered three broad categories of antigen as the source of the signal: the protein products of tumor viruses, of mutated genes, and of normal but usually ...

...te it with off-the-shelf chemicals andstandardized laboratory machinery. "We think other researchers couldeasily use this technique with any other tissue in mouse, or human, orany other species," said Bhatia.Scientists have identified about 100 proteins - including laminin,fibronectin, and several kinds of coll...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

... the data they collected and conducting additional laboratory experiments. UMaine scientists are planning to return to the Pacific in 2007, but they have a different destination in mind. Work by Japanese and Canadian researchers has already shown that the consequences of iron additions may vary from the easter...

Termites feed through good vibrations

... intelligence. CSIRO entomologist Theo Evans says laboratory experiments have found that termites use their ability to detect vibrations to determine which food source is most suitable. The termites can also detect how the vibrations are made. This ability could be likened to a form of sonar. Dr Evans says di...

Timing is everything: First step in protein building revealed

...released completelyin living creatures, but in our laboratory experiments that is clearlythe case," adds Lorsch. "Even if it isn't released completely in intactcells, our results would indicate that it must be very looselyassociated for translation [protein building] to begin."To monitor what was happening to e...

Measurement errors common to all labs were the next mostcommon contributor, and biological differences in different sampleswere the largest source of variation.“This study indicate...

Ancient olfaction protein is shared by many bugs, offering new pest control target

...ent insect species. Research by Leslie Vosshall's laboratory had previously shown that of 62 odorant-receptor proteins expressed by fruit flies, 61 are exclusively expressed in non-overlapping sub-populations of neurons, indicating that these proteins participate in sensing particular types of odors. However, ...

Genome-wide mouse study yields link to human leukemia
