Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

...ing polymerase complex. Since acetylated Tat can’t recruit CyclinT1 and CDK-9, the authors explain, a new round of transcription requires that new, unacetylated Tats are produced or existing Tats are deacetylated. Thus, efficient viral replication depends on adequate Tat supplies. And since HIV gene expressi...

Controlling protein diversity

... are activated to seek out target genes. They then recruit the coactivators ?in this case CAPERá and CAPERâ. These coactivators not only cause the gene to begin the process that results in protein production, they also determine what kind of RNA (a kind of genetic template for the protein) is made as well as...

Nanoparticles offer new hope for detection and treatment

...ork for most solid tumors, because all tumors must recruit new blood vessels to obtain nutrients as they grow. Nevertheless, melanoma has unique traits that make it especially interesting as a target for nanoparticle therapy. Melanoma has a horizontal phase, when it spreads across the skin surface, and a ve...

'EuroVacc 02' HIV Vaccine Trial Begins

...ow risk of acquiring HIV infection. The study will recruit 40 healthy volunteers: 20 at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) in Lausanne, and 20 at St Mary's Hospital, Imperial College London. All volunteers, male or female, should be between 18 and 55 yrs, HIV-negative and at low risk of infe...

B cells are required for development of epithelial cancer associated with chronic inflammation

...ytes in this model system resulted in a failure to recruit innate white blood cells to premalignant skin and an absence of chronic inflammation. As a consequence, parameters of early cancer development were attenuated, and cancer incidence was significantly reduced. The researchers went on to show that trans...

Bumblebees copy one another when contending with unfamiliar flowers

...blebees are highly social insects, but they do not recruit nestmates to feeding locations, and foragers have therefore been thought to rely mainly on individual experience when seeking out rewarding flowers. The role of other bees in these decisions has been considered only in the context of deterrence becau...

Improving the potential of cancer vaccines

...es," said Wang. "In fact, tumor cells can actively recruit and activate them to turn on their immune suppressive function." One way to stop this action is to simply wipe out the cells with chemoagents or a specific antibody. "But you may also deplete the good cells needed for fighting cancer," said Wang. ...

Unweaving amyloid fibers to solve prion puzzles

...ften composed of prions--proteins that misfold and recruit neighboring proteins to misfold as well, a process that Lindquist calls a "conformational cascade." When such a cascade occurs, the prions join and form amyloid fibers. (While not all amyloids are composed of prions, all known prions, in their transm...

After initial treatment and evaluation, a pediatric surgeon will approach the injured child's parents to explain the trial and request permission...

Discovering the first steps in transcription-coupled repair

...wn. It appears that either CSB or XPG is needed to recruit TFIIH to the stalled polymerase, and it's likely they do this more efficiently when working together. The new findings suggest that one of the major functions of TFIIH -- previously unsuspected -- is to clear the way for transcription-coupled repair ...

Weizmann Institute suggests that immune cells help to maintain cognition and brain cell renewal

...NS components do not attack the brain but instead, recruit the help of the brain's own resident immune cells to safely fight off any outflow of toxic substances from damaged nerve tissues. In the present study, the scientists showed that the same immune cells may also be key players in the body's maintenan...
