Deficient DNA Repair Capacity Associated With Increased Risk Of Breast Cancer

... DNA repair is the system of defenses designed to protect the integrity of the genome. Studies have suggested that deficiency in cells' capacity for DNA repair contributes to the accumulation of DNA damage and accelerates the genetic changes involved in carcinogenesis. To evaluate whether reduced DNA repai...

Genes In The Interferon System Important In Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

...us."We found that genetic variants of thyrosinkase protect against SLE. Itprobably has an inhibited function that blocks the interferon effect.It is therefore possible to imagine the development of methods oftreatment for SLE based on blocking the function of the thyrosinkinaseenzyme," explains Lars Rönnblom...

Dysentery uses 'sword and shield' to cause infection

...on the surface of the bacteria acts as a shield to protect the dysentery bacterium from being destroyed by the body's immune system. Dr Christoph Tang, from Imperial College London, and one of the researchers, comments: "This is the first description of bacteria able to use this 'sword and shield' approach,...

Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

...ve identified the means by whichunstimulated cells protect the Notch receptor from activation.Recent studies by other labs had shown that a number of stages in theNotch cascade were subject to ubiquitination, in which proteins aretagged by a complex of ubiquitin proteins. This system is best knownfor its fun...

Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

... that introduction can provide insight into how to protect neural cells. This is showing us a new way to approach the problem.?/p> Parkinson's disease is caused by the death of brain cells that produce a vital chemical known as dopamine, which carries messages that tell the body how and when to move.

Why do insects stop 'breathing'? To avoid damage from too much oxygen, say researchers

...biomaterial due to excess oxygen -- to tissues. To protect their bodies, insects like grasshoppers discontinue breathing. "We propose that most insects stop breathing in order to lower their internal oxygen concentration to physiologically safe levels, and that they then substantially reduce gas exchange to...

Antibodies from plants protect against anthrax
