Bacteria collection sheds light on urinary tract infections

...ring subtherapeutic doses of antibiotics as growth promoters in animals. E.coli is common bacteria found in humans and animals. Thousands of E.coli live in the organs of humans and animals and provide multiple benefits such as aiding in digestion of certain nutrients. However, E.coli is also commonly associat...

Genetic therapy reverses nervous system damage in animal model of inherited human disease

Master regulatory gene found that guides fate of blood-producing stem cells

...n factor, called NF-Y, was required for activating promoters of all of these genes. What's more, they found that fully assembled NF-Y was activated in stem cells and disappeared when the stem cells became mature cell types, through the induction and loss of one its subunits, NF-Ya. "When we overexpressed NF-Y...

'Perception' gene tracked humanity's evolution, scientists say

...hin promoter was unique to humans. Other primates' promoters were far more homogeneous. Exactly how prodynorphin influences human perception is unknown. Evidence for its various effects comes entirely from clinical studies of people who have mutations in the gene. Past clinical studies have also indicated a ...

Effect on breast tumors of DNA alternations in 3 genes described

...ecific genes that are most likely to become cancer promoters when exposed to a process called DNA promoter hypermethylation. Hypermethylation is a process that causes genes that promote normal cell growth to produce proteins that cause malignant behavior, or unregulated cell growth. Until now, data has been v...
