Viral DNA sequence a possible trigger for breast cancer

... in mouse breast cells transforms them. This study puts the spotlight on a potential new mechanism for virus-induced breast cell transformation, which has largely been attributed to the integration of viral DNA into locations that trigger the expression of host cancer-causing genes. An intriguing wrinkle ...

Computers to be used to find blueprint for new influenza drug

...e often think of flu as just a nasty illness which puts us in bed for a few days. But some outbreaks can cause death on a large scale ?the world-wide outbreak in 1918 killed more people than the First World War itself. We may now be facing another flu outbreak, this time originating from chickens in Asia....

Inflammatory molecules released by pollen trigger allergies

...y 21 issue of The Journal of Experimental Medicine puts some of the blame on bioactive molecules that are released from pollen. These molecules bind to immune cells and cause them to launch a typical allergy-promoting immune response. Pollen from plants exposed to air pollutants produce more of these alle...

Novel Therapy Tested in Mice Could Chase Away Cat Allergies

...r Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. The injectable treatment puts a brake on the release of a key chemical from cells involved in cat allergy reactions. That chemical, histamine, brings on allergy symptoms such as sneezing, wheezing, itching, watery eyes, and sometimes asthma. When a cat-allergic person touches or ...

Science study holds implications for gene therapy and stem cell biology

... the multiplication rate of stem cells. While this puts these cells at risk to cause cancer, the majority of mice that were investigated in this study showed no signs of such side effects. "This is a step forward in our research because it helps us understand which genes are involved in regulating stem c...

Unexpected lock and key mechanism found for the assembly of tumor blood vessels

...entified as key regulators of immune cell function puts the finishing touches on newly constructed blood vessels by allowing the two cell layers of blood vessels to recognize and "lock" together. The study, which appears in the June 2005 issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, is the first to sho...

Insects develop resistance to engineered crops

...t. And when one line of defense starts to fail, it puts more pressure on the second toxin in a pyramided plant to control the insect," Shelton added. While single-gene Bt plants are most prevalent, industry trends suggest that pyramided plants may be favored in the future. In Australia, the use of single...
