A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty

...volved, just how and when the brain activates this process has been a great mystery. An appreciation of puberty's deep-seated neurobiological mechanisms could, for instance, help prevent precocious or delayed puberty from occurring in some children," noted the study's lead author, Tony Plant, Ph.D., a profes...

DNA Molecules Used To Assemble Nanoparticles

...ch as contrast agents and drugs, but the synthesis process is long and difficult, requiring months for each new molecule added to the dendrimer in sequential steps. And the yield of useful particles drops with each successive step of synthesis. For a paper published Jan. 21 in the journal Chemistry and Biol...

UAB scientists discover the origin of a mysterious physical force

...omedical research, since a substantial part of the process of designing new drugs is based on understanding how substances penetrate cell membranes to enter cells. These drugs are often proteins designed to prevent or strengthen the action of other substances. In these cases, accurately identifying the prote...

Quantum Dots Research Leads to New Knowledge about Protein Binding in Plants

Source of molecular triggers in cutaneous T cell lymphoma identified

...sed during normal cell death. As cells undergo the process of apoptosis, cryptic -- or masked -- antigens, are uncovered. Those newly available antigens are presented by LC directly to CTCL receptors, stimulating the malignant cells rapidly divide. "This finding has broad implications for the understanding,...

Enzyme, lost in most mammals, is shown to protect against UV-induced skin cancer

...se lesionsthrough a much less direct and elaborate process called nucleotideexcision repair.In the new work, Dr. Bert van der Horst and colleagues studied theeffects of CPD and 6-4PP lesions by providing mice with transgenesencoding CPD and 6-4PP photolyase enzymes.Although mice do not ordinarily produce the...

Novel technology detects human DNA mutations

....To do so, Nanosphere scientists employ a two-step process calledClearReadTM technology. This method sandwiches a target DNA SNP segment between two oligonucleotide sequences to greatly increase detection specificity and sensitivity. One segment identifies any mutations in the DNA and the probe, a highly sen...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...regations. They studied the sinking rate, the slow process through which aggregations of diatoms sink into the deep sea, taking their carbon with them. The Kilo Moana returned to Hawaii after spending 42 days at sea. Early results suggest that the struggle for iron may indeed follow something like what happ...

Lack of enzyme turns fat cells into fat burners

Some people are not able to repair their own vessels,however, and physicians don't completely understand the reasons why.Recent studies show that when muscles do not receive enough blood, thebody m...

Fox Chase Cancer Center scientists identify immune-system mutation

...e underlying molecular pathways that regulate this process have remained obscure. "The mutant HD mice are unable to generate mature helper T cells, even though their immature T cells carry the CD4 protein," Kappes explained. "Instead, the mutation redirects them to the killer-cell pathway. "Our new study i...

Plants, animals share molecular growth mechanisms

...edge of the biochemical reactions involved in this process eventually may allow researchers to design plants better able to protect themselves from insects and disease. "These genes and their proteins are required for normal development and for normal cell-to-cell adhesion," Szymanski said. "They affect the...

Researchers Uncover Key Step In Manufacture of Memory Protein

...ol-rich molecules known as lipids. If this binding process does not take place, proBDNF cannot be converted to its active form. Dr. Loh explained that the proBDNF molecule has four projections, resembling prongs. These prongs fit into a corresponding indentation on CPE, analogous to the way a plug for an ele...
