Newly Discovered Compound Blocks Known Cancer-Causing Protein

...y its chemical structure. A search of the chemical literature turned up no previous description of the chemical, leading the scientists to believe they had discovered a new chemical compound with a unique biological function. When the scientists tested the compound's ability to inhibit Ras function in living c...

CoPub Mapper: mining MEDLINE based on search term co-publication

...determined. To assess gene clustering according to literature co-publication, 150 genes consisting of 8 sets with known connections (same pathway, same protein complex, or same cellular localization, etc.) were run through the program. Receiver operator characteristics (ROC) analyses showed that most gene sets ...

Different microarray systems more alike than previously thought

...e Hopkins researchers noted that in the scientific literature some comparisons of different microarray systems found compatibility and some did not, and no study explored the possibility that a laboratory's methods of using a particular system affected the results. "Given the amount of tinkering that occurs in...

The evolutionary triumph of flower power

...Flowers have been ignored for the most part in the literature on plants and people," McGuire says. "Perhaps they have been overlooked because their nature and beauty is so obvious. It is hard to imagine that we might have been responsible at least in part for their appearance. With the proposed model of evoluti...

Mapping neuron connections in the brain

...drawings are already available in the neuroscience literature for many types of neurons. With this method, neuron connection maps could be used to create computer simulations of neural circuits involving tens of thousands of neurons with biologically realistic connections--and provide a practical way to begin u...

Study shows how retinoic acid enters a cell's nucleus

... NLS, and it solves a mystery that has been in the literature for a long time," Noy says. "It explains a basic mechanism of how this protein, CRABP-II, gets into the nucleus, where it can act to suppress tumors." CRABP-II is a member of a group of proteins called intracellular lipid binding proteins (ILBP), wh...
