Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...k by an idea: Why not apply a chemical known to be necessary for a later stage of neuron development to a much earlier step in the process? The hunch paid off and turned out to be the final piece of the puzzle. The discovery, says Zhang, demonstrates that human stem cells do not necessarily differentiate in ...

Genes In The Interferon System Important In Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

...erferon effect.

Novel technology detects human DNA mutations

...terest. Once that base pair is located, it is then necessary to determine if either of the bases is mutated (i.e., has SNPs). Nanosphere's technology can rapidly, easily, and accurately interrogate both bases in the pair to determine if they are homozygous (i.e., both are mutant or normal) or heterozygous (i.e...

Plants, animals share molecular growth mechanisms

... protein strings, called actin filaments, that are necessary for cellular growth, said Dan Szymanski, agronomy associate professor and lead author of the study. Knowledge of the biochemical reactions involved in this process eventually may allow researchers to design plants better able to protect themselves fr...

Transplantation Of Monkey Embryonic Stem Cells Reverses Parkinson Disease In Primates

Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

... as a kind of "calcium bank." If calcium, which is necessary for such important functions as maintaining the brain and heart, runs low, cells called osteoclasts dig out the calcium from our bones. This is why doctors encourage post-menopausal women to take calcium supplements, so that the body doesn't raid the...

Gene variations explain drug dose required to control seizures

Patients often undergo a lengthy process of trial and error to find the dose ...

U-M scientists find genes that control growth of common skin cancer

...archers found that sustained expression of Gli2 is necessary forthe continued growth of these tumors. When Dlugosz and colleaguesturned Gli2 off, the BCC tumor cells stopped growing and wereeliminated by a programmed cell death process. These results areconsistent with previous work from other labs studying di...
