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.

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
