'Cookbook recipes' would cure disease with nontoxic DNA delivery systems

..."By understanding some of the physics, we now have recipes for assembling delivery systems with different structures, which can have intrinsically different, controllable DNA delivery efficiencies," Wong said. "We found that the same family of structures are generated for many different ions." Gene therapy ...

The earliest animals had human-like genes

...rent issue of the journal Science. Genes hold the recipes for proteins. The genes of animals usually contain extra bits of DNA sequence, called introns ?information which has to be removed as cells create new molecules. The number of introns in genes, however, varies greatly among animals. While humans have...

Antibacterial coatings cut infection rates

...ake them work for best effect. We have established recipes for practical applications of the furanone coatings onto different devices. We now have a very good basis for tailoring these coatings towards particular biomedical devices and are using this knowledge to work with Sydney-based company, Biosignal Lim...

MIT 'seeing machine' offers hope to blind

...ing said. "One woman told me she would love to see recipes written that way." They also used the machine to navigate through a virtual environment, raising the potential for "previewing" unfamiliar buildings a person wants to visit. Goldring explained that visually challenged people are often terrified of...

Study defines effective microbicide design for HIV/AIDS prevention

... predict the effectiveness of various microbicidal recipes in destroying human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) before it reaches vulnerable body tissues. Using the tool, the researchers have determined that a thin, long-lasting coating of microbicide delivered to susceptible tissues in a woman's vagina can si...

Using nanomagnets to enhance medical imaging

Danish researches solve virus puzzle

... DNA. RNA is like a 'cook book' which contains the recipes of which proteins the virus needs for replication. The work process of a virus The cell has ribosomes, a kind of 'molecular motors', which move along the RNA and read the code for the proteins to be produced to fulfill the needs of the livin...

First confirmed common genetic risk factors for breast cancer

...riggers of breast cancer. The genes carry the DNA recipes for proteins important to the growth and duplication of body cells and the signalling, or communications, that must occur between cells in order for the body to function normally. Previous investigations have identified about a dozen genetic muta...
