Critical role in programmed cell death identified

...programmed cell death is so important and the more players we know that are involved, the more potential targets we have for therapeutics," Conradt said. During development, for example, many neurons are built, but after birth, more than half are eliminated in the central nervous system in mammals: "It's a c...

Opposing fat metabolism pathways triggered by a single gene

... for any animal, from nematodes to humans. Central players in the regulatory network are the nuclear hormone receptors (NHRs), which are transcription factors that turn on or off a set of target genes when bound by specific lipid molecules. In the premier open-access journal PLoS Biology, Keith Yamamoto and ...

Kinovate Life Sciences Launches Nittophase?High Performance Solid Support For Oligonucleatide Synthesis

Pe'er suggests a similar technique could be used to study the differences between normal and abnormal cells. This application would be particularly useful for understanding...

Some Brain Cells 'Change Channels' To Fine-tune The Message

...ility has been recognized for a few years, the key players controlling it hadn't been identified. Now, by studying mice, the Hopkins team has identified two proteins, called PICK1 and NSF for short, that help replace channels that let charged calcium ions in with another kind of channel that keeps calcium ou...

Insects, viruses could hold key for better human teamwork in disasters

...t is the belief that civil engineers should be key players in disaster relief operations involving critical physical infrastructures -- a fourth group of "first-responders," along with firefighters, police and medical personnel.

A statistical team, led by Gastone Castellani, an associate research professor with the Institute for Brain and Neural Systems and a professor at the Università di Bologna, tested two methods to try to model this network. ...

Scientists discover stem cell origin of neck and shoulders

... commented, "Now that we have identified these key players in forming the neck and the shoulders we can start looking for the genes that are on in these stem cells and which are ultimately responsible for evolutionary changes over millions of years and are also behind a number of serious human illnesses. Thi...

Energy management in cells may hold key to cancer defense

...these two kinases, we think we have all nearly the players responsible for energy regulation within the cell, which should offer new opportunities in cancer treatment," said Hurley. "If we can stifle a cancer cell's ability to adapt to an energy deficit, it might lose its growth advantage." "You need to kn...

A 'dimmer switch' for genes

...domly structured regions believed to be only minor players in the protein world ?they become important in turning genes on and off, but in a way that resembles a dimmer switch rather than an on-off switch. Genes carry the code that produces proteins to carry out almost all functions in a living organism. Bu...
