Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

...Experiments using cells taken from transgenic mice lacking SIRT1 demonstrated that introducing human SIRT1 enzymes increased Tat’s transcriptional effects in a dose-dependent manner, while treating cells with the small molecule HR73, a derivative of a molecule that inhibits the yeast version of the SIRT1 pro...

An HIV Protein Plays a Surprising Role in Gene Activation

...t-driven transcription proceeded as usual in cells lacking TAFs. And they demonstrated that it is Tat—along with its cofactor P-TEFb, which is normally bound to RNA through Tat—that recruits the TAF-deficient TBP. Altogether, these results show a surprising new role for Tat in stimulating assembly of a tran...

Same mutation aided evolution in many fish species, Stanford study finds

...is group found that several species of stickleback lacking hind fins all shared an alteration in how a gene was turned on and off. The striking similarity is that in both studies evolution turned to the same genetic switch to work a visible change in the fish. However, in the fin study the group wasn't able...

Molecule that usually protects infection-fighting cells may cause plaque deposits inside arteries

...ago. In the current study, scientists exposed mice lacking AIM to a fatty diet that would normally induce atherosclerosis. After several weeks, researchers found little to no atherosclerotic lesions. Comparatively, in mice that had normal AIM function, there was marked presence of plaque deposits in the art...

Researchers identify protein crucial for survival of Lyme-disease bacterium

...eaks down whole blood. "For some reason, bacteria lacking the BptA protein either can't utilize the blood meal in the way the wild-type bacteria do, or something about the blood becomes hostile to them," said Dr. Norgard, who holds the B.B. Owen Distinguished Chair in Molecular Research. "Instead of helping...

He found that mice lacking both copies of IRE1 died before birth and had fewer hematopoietic stem cells ?precursor cells which develop into many different types of blood and immune cells ?than normal mice. Zhang transplanted hematopoietic stem cells from IRE1 knock-out embryo...

Protein That Promotes Survival Of Stem Cells Might Be Key To Poor Leukemia Prognosis

...lations. The team also demonstrated that BM cells lacking Mcl-1 did not multiply when removed from mice and cultured in the laboratory. However, BM cells with the gene continued to flourish. In contrast, liver cells were unaffected following loss of Mcl-1, demonstrating that Mcl-1 is important only in certa...

Same-Sex Mating Discovered in a Toxic Fungus

... explained. Furthermore, the team showed, strains lacking components required for mating -- including pheromones, pheromone receptors and other genes with known roles in mating -- exhibited a defect in fruiting. The newly described mating strategy might allow a single mating strain to expand rapidly by cel...
