Protein discovery could unlock the secret to better TB treatment

... the structure of a protein known as resuscitation promoting factor (Rpf). Five versions of the Rpf protein exist in TB bacteria. The paper's unveiling of the molecular structure of Rpf could be crucial to the treatment of TB in the future. Dr John Ward, Dept of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at UCL, said...

Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

...es just 14 proteins, which play different roles in promoting viral infection and virulence. As a retrovirus, HIV uses the host’s cellular machinery—including RNA polymerases, which carry out transcription—to copy its RNA genome into DNA and infiltrate human chromosomal DNA. Once the virus is integrated (now ca...

An HIV Protein Plays a Surprising Role in Gene Activation

...hat Tat may well stimulate assembly in addition to promoting transcription elongation. And it may be this resourcefulness that makes Tat such a potent activator—and HIV so hard to control. (For more on Tat's role in HIV transcription, see “Novel Enzyme Shows Potential as an Anti-HIV Target?[DOI: 10.1371/journa...

Mouse brain tumors mimic those in human genetic disorder

Enzyme shown to help protect genomic stability

... from histones. Sir2 has also been associated with promoting genomic stability, and some studies have linked it intriguingly to the aging process. Some studies, for example, have suggested that low-calorie diets that extend life also boost Sir2 activity dramatically. ...

Newly Discovered Compound Blocks Known Cancer-Causing Protein

... can cause it to become stuck in an "on" position, promoting uncontrolled cell growth. Mutations in Ras that permanently activate it have been found in half of all colon cancer and 90 percent of pancreatic cancers, among other cancers. Casey and his colleagues in Duke's Department of Pharmacology and Cancer B...

Rush Physicians Using Gene Therapy For Heart Patients With Moderate To Severe Chest Pains Who Do Not Benefit From Other Treatments

...turn stimulates the growth of new blood vessels by promoting the proliferation of endothelial cells in the heart. New blood vessels are required to provide oxygen-carrying blood to heart muscles to compensate for the blocked heart arteries. The subsequent, improved blood flow relieves the painful symptoms of ...

International HapMap consortium expands mapping effort

"This research offers the possibility of developing a new class of compounds that could affect potassium channels in the brain rather than other brain chemical systems targeted currently," says lead autho...

Harmful chemicals may reprogram gene response to estrogen

...nce estrogen, a female hormone that is involved in promoting the growth of tumors by regulating the activity of key genes involved in cell growth. "We found that the DES treatment somehow 'reprogrammed' how these genes respond to estrogen, making them much more responsive to estrogen than normal," said Walker....

Protein That Promotes Survival Of Stem Cells Might Be Key To Poor Leukemia Prognosis

...such Bcl-2 family protein--Mcl-1--is essential for promoting the survival of these cells." Progenitor cells are precursors arising from HSCs; these cells produce daughter cells that become increasingly specialized and then produce specific types of blood cells, such as B lymphocytes--immune cells that produce...

Genetic defects give the immune system the green light to attack the pancreas

...ion of errant T-cells, and an increase of activity promoting their survival. The safeguard system was broken. The T-cells were alive and able to leave the thymus and attack beta cells. Now that the chromosomal regions are known, the researchers are seeking the precise genes involved. “Once these genes are ide...

Combination therapy leads to partial recovery from spinal cord injury in rats

.... However, until now it has not been clear whether promoting new myelin growth in the spinal cord can reverse this damage, says Scott R. Whittemore, Ph.D., of the University of Louisville in Kentucky, who led the new study. "Many other investigators have suggested that remyelination is a possible approach to r...
