California-based master voice instructor Lisa Popeil ( lisa@popeil.com ) will explain how a singer can hear and produce three important frequency bands of harmonics: ring (2500-3500 Hz), which helps singers to project their voices in an unamplified setting; brightness (5-15...

Major gene study uncovers secrets of leukemia

Treatments that inhibited XOR activity in cells blocked fat formation and PPAR-gamma activity, the r...

Common gene version optimizes thinking -- but with a possible downside

...effects of variation in the human gene for a brain master switch, DARPP-32. The researchers identified a common version of the gene and showed how it impacts the way two key brain regions exchange information, affecting a range of functions from general intelligence to attention.

Researchers discover gene crucial for nerve cell insulation

...of Health have discovered how a defect in a single master gene disrupts the process by which several genes interact to create myelin, a fatty coating that covers nerve cells and increases the speed and reliability of their electrical signals. The discovery has implications for understanding disorders of m...

Cracking open the black box of autoimmune disease

... regulatory T cells are themselves controlled by a master gene regulator called Foxp3. Master gene regulators bind to specific genes and control their level of activity, which in turn affects the behavior of cells. In fact, when Foxp3 stops functioning, the body can no longer produce working regulatory T ce...

Jefferson researchers uncover new way nature turns genes on and off

...ioning of homeotic, or HOX, genes, which guide the master developmental plan of the organism. "We think that this new mechanism operates early in embryogenesis," says Dr. Mazo. According to Dr. Mazo, the researchers found that one of the likely mechanisms behind ncRNAs' ability to regulate essential c...

Found -- the apple gene for red

...requires light to be activated." "By identifying master genes that were activated by light, Adam was able to pinpoint the gene that controls the formation of anthocyanins in apples, and we found that in green apples this gene is not expressed as much as in red apples." In collaboration with apple breede...

New angiogenesis finding may help fight cancer growth

...genesis inhibitor. "It's premature to call it a master switch, but intriguingly, it regulates at least four different processes, each of which individually would be anti-angiogenic," says Bresnick. Angiogenesis inhibitors, Bresnick observes, are a fast-growing field of medicine. This June, the Food an...
