Gene therapy research switches off joint inflammation; switches on genetic process of joint repair
...inforest Nutritionals, Inc. have demonstrated in a mini
symposium held today at the 14th International Conference of the Inflammation Research Association (IRA) that a blend of natural botanical products called Reparagen have turned on the master repair gene, IGF-1, which is responsible for growing human ...
Technique offers new view of dynamic biological landscape
...he cell. The technology, which is called epistatic mini
array profiles (E-MAP), has already been used to assign new functions to known genes, to uncover the roles of previously uncharacterized proteins, and to define how biochemical pathways and proteins interact with one another. E-MAP will enable new ...
Used in a new way, RNA interference permanently silences key breast cancer gene
...ds Arlinghaus, who also will discuss the work in a mini
symposium at the AACR meeting. RNAi has been employed as a laboratory tool to knock down expression of genes in a variety of cells and organisms. It works by introducing a small double-stranded RNA (RNAi) that specifically targets a gene's product, ...
