The secret lives of whales

... it, and drop it to the sea floor. The transponder lets them find it later with a manned submersible or robotic vehicle. They now know that a whale fall may host even more species than a hydrothermal vent—many unique to whale falls. Recently discovered “blind zombie worms?use an internal “bacterial garde...

Circles Of DNA Might Help Predict Success Of Stem Cell Transplantation

...lting combination of genes to make a receptor that lets the cell recognize a specific target. When stimulated to multiply, each of those cells produce an army of immune cells against their designated target. Specific infectious organisms or other foreign substances stimulate T cells to divide and multipl...

Protein offers way to stop microscopic parasites in their tracks

Scientists led by the Institute for Genomic Research in Rockville, Md., posted the completed Toxoplasma genome online last year. Geneticists at Washington University's Genome Sequencing Center c...

Effective Cancer Treatments Follow The Clock

...the molecular mechanism of internal clock function lets us make some important predictions of how these mice may respond to drug treatment,?said Antoch. “Thus, defects in Clock or Bmal1 genes, which essentially damp the cycles of the internal clock may produce very different effect when compared to defect...

Some Brain Cells 'Change Channels' To Fine-tune The Message

Although the cells' channel-changing ability has been recognized for a few years, the key players controlling it hadn'...

Measuring Enzymes At End Of Cancer Pathway Predicts Outcome Of Tarceva, Taxol

... our industry collaborator has provided a way that lets us test real enzyme activity within a human tumor sample," he says. "Our hope is to be able to use this system as a molecular marker to assess whether an anti-cancer therapy is working." ABSTRACT # 1670 Sensitivity to Tarceva Depends on CDK2 In th...

Doing a spin with DNA

... cuts through one of the two DNA strands, and then lets the DNA unwind before sticking the broken ends back together again. With the help of sensitive measuring devices, the researchers could measure various parameters such as the friction of the rotating DNA in a cavity of the enzyme. The research has pr...

Immune system's distress signal tells bacteria when to strike back

...tion notice from your landlord," Alverdy said. "It lets them know they need to find a new home. They don't take that news any better than we would." A vulnerable host, like a condemned home, is a liability, a threat to its tenants' survival. Pseudomonas, however, has the tools to engineer its own escape ...

Slipping past the blood brain barrier: Research shows potential treatment for brain cancer

...barrier is set up to very carefully patrol what it lets into the brain and what it keeps out. It makes these decisions based on the physicochemical properties," says Dr. Banks, who also is a staff physician at Veterans Affairs Medical Center in St. Louis. "Most of our drugs that fight cancers are toxic t...

Hopkins scientists uncover 'tags' that force proteins to cell surface

...t use one of these "tags" are the ion channel that lets heart cells contract on cue, and the docking point that allows HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, into cells, the researchers discovered. Because proteins on the cell surface are "lock-on" sites for drugs and other molecules, as well as triggers of im...

Why do aneurysms form? New studies suggest leading role for white blood cells

...porarily, and in rats that lacked the protein that lets neutrophils attach to tissue and start the "first aid" process. The researchers exposed a small part of the rodent aortas to a chemical that breaks down blood vessel tissue, then studied what happened in the rodents that had altered neutrophil system...

Computers close in on protein structure prediction
