Researchers discover 'acquired' DNA key to certain bacterial infection

...genes do,” he said, “and none of the DNA sequences match those in known databases.” The researchers did discover that one of the genes provides coding for a protein that targets action in the host cell, which may help the bacterium survive in the macrophage. Bermudez said the researchers learned the ...

Gut research yields new anti-cancer approach

... at least one of the PPARgamma inhibitors does not match it. In addition, PPARgamma inhibitors do not bind to the standard tubulin-binding site that renders Taxol useless when binding sites change shapes thanks to ongoing genetic mutations. With standard anti-microtubule not an option for colorectal c...

Nanotextured implant materials: blending in, not fighting back

...the surface texture of implant materials to better match the natural texture of the endothelium, they found that endothelial cells quickly colonized the foreign surfaces, effectively camouflaging them and preventing smooth muscle cells from overgrowing the implants. Once the endothelial cells form a single...

New study challenges 'critical period' in childhood vision development

This case demonstrated that a person can acquire visual function even after being deprived of sight for an extended period during childhood. The evidence gathered from this case study presents a scientific alternative to t...

Fitness has fallen since the days of Ancient Greece

...small elite. Yet this large group, it seems, would match up well with the best of modern athletes. Either ancient Athenians had a more efficient way of rowing the trireme or they would have to be an extremely fit group. Our data raise the interesting notion that these ancient athletes were genetically bett...

Novel antigen-cloning technique may boost efforts to develop a melanoma vaccine

...to transfer the HLA genes into recipient cells and match the genes to each T cell type as it permits the B cells to present the peptide to the T cells in context with their own HLA class II. Herlyn and her group now plan to use the RPL8 antigen to develop a melanoma vaccine for patients with advanced di...

Penn study on lung-infecting bacterial enzyme suggests new approach to cystic fibrosis treatment

Mitochondrial genes move to the nucleus -- but it's not for the sex

...e components are further separated if they mix and match haphazardly during out-crossing. Brandvain said the finding contradicts the expectation that mitochondrial genes migrate to the nucleus because of the evolutionary benefits conferred by sexual recombination. "The benefits of sex could have driven...
