Common cancer gene sends death order to tiny killer

...oduces other types of RNA in the cell, such as the messenger RNAs that carry the instructions to make proteins. Once produced, microRNAs stick to messenger RNAs and, like crumpled paper jammed in a copy machine, prevent proteins from being made. Josh M...

How plague-causing bacteria disarm host defense

...ll. YpkA targets a host protein called Gaq, the messenger that transmits extracellular signals ("we are under attack!") into the host cell, so that it can mount a defense. "The alarm signal sent by Gaq is intercepted by YpkA, which sets up a roadblock along several cellular pathways that Gq uses to del...

A cherry on top: Tart cherries may alter heart/diabetes factors

...Type 2 diabetes. Meanwhile, the measure of PPAR messenger RNA in the liver reflects the readiness of the liver tissue to express functional PPAR. PPAR is important to the process by which the body burns fat instead of storing it, and it is important in the formation of blood lipids like LDL, typically known...

LIAI scientists make important finding on cytomegalovirus transmission

...ing binding of IL-10 to its receptor. "IL-10 is a messenger molecule which suppresses the protective T cell response that would normally attack the cytomegalovirus," he said. "By blocking the ability of the IL-10 molecule to bind to its receptor, then you allow these T cells to do their job and reduce or eli...

Genome of yellow fever/dengue fever mosquito sequenced

...s, scientists have also sequenced large amounts of messenger RNAs collected from different mosquito tissues at distinct developmental stages. Matching a messenger RNA to a predicted gene will validate authenticity of this gene." The TE team, lead by the Tu la...

Newly identified mechanism for silencing genes points to possible anti-cancer strategies

...that act to interfere with gene transcription into messenger RNA or translation of messenger RNA into protein. In a new study published online May 16 in the journal Nature, a team of scienti...

Mutation improves memory, may lead to memory-enhancing pill

Mechanisms involved with tumor relapse identified

...ound that interferon gamma, a cytokine or chemical messenger that is produced by cells of the immune system upon activation, plays a role in tumor relapse. In humans, interferon gamma is also produced by white blood cells of the immune system in response to invasion by pathogens or tumors in order to protect t...

Biologists develop large gene dataset for rice plant

...lleagues examined both normal gene expression (via messenger ribonucleic acids, or mRNAs) as well as small ribonucleic acids (small RNAs) in rice. The analysis of rice was based on gene sequences representing nearly 47 million mRNA molecules and three million small RNAs, a larger dataset than has been repor...

Destructive enzyme shows a benevolent side

HIV protein enlisted to help kill cancer cells

... in St. Louis have found an efficient way to get a messenger into cancer cells that forces them to respond to death signals. And they did it using one of the most sinister pathogens around ?HIV. "HIV knows how to insert itself into many different types of cells," says senior author William G. Hawkins, M.D., a...

MicroRNA helps prevent tumors

It took seven years for the second one to be found, also in worms, but then the floodgates burst. Many microRNAs...

Killing the messenger RNA -- But which one?
