Man and mouse share genome structures

...n structure of the two shortest human chromosomes, numbers 21 and 22, containing about two percent of the human genome. They also sampled additional regions in both the human and mouse genomes, finding similar patterns along equivalent chromosomal regions, even where the underlying DNA sequences are differen...

Jump-starting T Cells In Skin Cancer

...es causes tumor regression without expanding large numbers of vaccine-specific killer T cells. Pierre Coulie...ic T cells after vaccination did not require large numbers of vaccine-specific T cells. Although it is not known how these tumor-specific cells get activated,...

Poor prenatal nutrition permanently damages function of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas

...esearchers found no difference in pancreas size or numbers of pancreatic beta cells, which produce insulin. But cultures of the beta cells revealed the answer: the undernourished mice had an abnormal way of responding to glucose. "They were somehow 'programmed' to secrete a limited amount of insulin later i...

Transplantation Of Monkey Embryonic Stem Cells Reverses Parkinson Disease In Primates

... stem cells andresulted in the generation of large numbers of DA neurons. In theircurrent JCI study, Jun Takahashi and colleagues generated neurons frommonkey embryonic stem cells and exposed these cells to FGF20, a growthfactor that is produced exclusively in the area of the brain affectedby Parkinson disea...

HIV Patients May Be at Risk of Heart Problems When Taking Protease Inhibitor Drugs

... of people are taking protease inhibitors, and the numbers who experience these unexpected side effects are very low -- much less than 1 percent."

Protein Packages Found To Activate Genes; May Be What Regulates Development And Disease

... genes appear to be turned on in groups by massive numbers of tags. HOX genes also are deeply involved in cancer, making the findings particularly important. Some of the proteins that regulate HOX genes are capable of causing or suppressing tumors. Technological breakthrough Bernstein has been studying ch...

Taking Aim With Nanoparticle PEBBLEs

...he PEBBLEs a bit more before trying them on larger numbers of rats, and PEBBLE-based cancer treatments for people are a long way off. But "there's no doubt," said Kopelman, "that nanoparticles such as PEBBLEs can do a fantastic job for therapy, diagnostics and a combination of the two." Kopelman's collabora...

Circles Of DNA Might Help Predict Success Of Stem Cell Transplantation

...cell," Handgretinger said. "So if we extract large numbers of sjTRECs from T cells in the blood of a patient about to undergo a stem cell transplant, that's a good sign. It means the patient's thymus is a good T-cell factory." Handgretinger is the senior author of the Blood report. The St. Jude team tested...
