Technology reveals 'lock and key' proteins behind diseases

... cells in our bodies contain transporters that are poised in cellular membranes and act as ‘gatekeepers?to allow the entry of certain substances, like nutrients, into the cell and promote the export of other substances, like toxins, out of the cell," says Professor Igor Stagljar, Department of Medical Genet...

Nanotechnology shows promise as next wrinkle fighter

...lasers to Botox injections ? and nanoparticles are poised to join the war by warding off dreaded buckles in human skin.

Getting to the heart of the heart

...just 1 percent of the cells in the dish) that were poised to begin developing along a cardiac pathway. The presence of these cardiac progenitors was indicated by a green fluorescent protein, which lit up when a gene called Nkx2.5 was activated. Orkin and Wu then showed that these cells further differentiate...

Production of key Alzheimer's protein monitored for first time in humans

Science is now poised to answer an important and longstanding question about the origins of Alzheimer's disease: Do Alzheimer's patients have high levels of a brain protein because they make too much of it or because they can't clear it from their brains quickly enough? ...

Mayo Clinic researchers challenge sepsis theory

...th sepsis? Dr. Brunn explains, "Our bodies are not poised to respond to sepsis. Our bodies are held in check by the fact that this molecule-receptor system is constrained in its activity. What causes sepsis -- and the syndrome like sepsis that can happen in cancer or trauma or in response to drugs -- is tha...

Two NIH initiatives launch intensive efforts to find roots of common diseases

...edical research over the past 10 years. We are now poised to combine what we have learned from years of population studies, with newly available technologies, developed with NIH support. These technologies reduced the cost of genotyping by more than 100-fold, making such a comprehensive effort affordable. E...

Common enzyme is a key player in DNA repair

...nism, they believe, the same specialized enzyme is poised to patch over a certain kind of blemish so that it does not permanently damage the genome. The DinB gene and its protein product were first discovered in Walker's lab in 1980, long before scientists knew anything about translesion polymerases. Then...

NJIT engineer poised to take stem cell research a step forward

...ls forward and, with her latest two grants, she is poised to take it yet another step. "Treena has all the earmarks of a technical superstar," says Jaffe, her partner on the spinal cord research. "She's at the leading edge of modern biology and if anyone can take stem cell research forward, she can." ...

Novel molecular 'signature' marks DNA of embryonic stem cells

...the activating influence appears to keep the genes poised for later activity. "For genes, this is equivalent to resting one finger on the trigger," said Stuart Schreiber, an author of the Cell paper, the director of the Chemical Biology program at the Broad Institute, and professor at Harvard University. "T...

Picking apart how neurons learn
