Viral DNA sequence a possible trigger for breast cancer

...ed trigger for breast cancer. The DNA sequence in question is usually found in immune cells and helps trigger the activation and proliferation of the cells. These sequences have also been found in proteins from some other cancer-causing viruses such as Epstein Barr virus and Kaposi's sarcoma virus, but what ...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...on fertilization tests conducted to that date. The question that remains unanswered is why the diatoms showed signs of nutrient stress before the iron and other nutrients were used up. Wells and his colleagues think they may know. For clues, they have looked to a discipline that is far removed from the sea. ...

Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

.... What haslong remained a mystery, however, is the question of how Notchreceptors that have not been activated by a ligand are protected fromdigestion by that protease. Now, in a report published in the December29 issue of Current Biology, Shigeo Hayashi (Group Director, Laboratoryfor Morphogenetic Signaling)...

U-M scientist to talk about tissue engineering at AAAS

...ing for the damage of radiation. "It's not just a question of whether we can make new tissue in a perfect condition. Now we're mimicking what can really happen in a person, and we don't know if the rules of regeneration might be totally different," said Paul Krebsbach, associate professor at the U-M School o...

An HIV Protein Plays a Surprising Role in Gene Activation

...ther Tat could play a similar role. To study this question in living human cells, Green and colleagues turned to chromatin immunoprecipitation, a technique that detects proteins bound (directly or indirectly) to DNA. Working with three well-known effectors of transcription—an activator (Gal4-VP16), a transcr...

NJIT Presidential Award winner takes stem cell research another step

...have impaired bone healing," Arinzeh said. "So the question is how to treat patients suffering from bone fractures and other defects that may not heal because they are also suffering from other disorders. We are looking at the current treatment for repairing bone defects, which is the use of allograft tissue,...

Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor

...he said, though more studies are needed before the question can be answered. Yanoviak noted that worker ants are secondarily wingless, meaning they probably evolved the ability to glide after they lost their permanent wings, which were common in primitive ants. "This discovery doesn't necessarily say someth...

Family trees of ancient bacteria reveal evolutionary moves

... sulfur and a major shift in carbon cycling. "The question is: Why?" said Blank. "My contribution is the attempt to find evolutionary explanations for these major changes. There were lots of evolutionary movements in Cyanobacteria at this time, and the bacteria were making an impact on the Earth's developmen...
