Gene therapy delivery of nerve growth factors reverses erectile dysfunction in animal model

...own in other studies to contribute to survival and regeneration of penile nerves. Neurturin also is a nerve growth factor closely related to GDNF. Control mice received only the virus without the GDNF or neurterin genes inserted. Four weeks after the treatment, rats administered HSV-GDNF exhibited significant...

A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...ciation with bacteria can contribute to vegetation regeneration schemes on soils depleted in nitrogen owing to overexploitation, erosion or desertification. The plant cover thus formed can help achieve ecological restoration, by enriching the soils in nitrogen. However, the symbiotic processes studied predominant...

Master regulatory gene of epithelial stem cells identified

..., however, identifies a "master regulator" of this regeneration process not only for skin, but for many epithelial tissues including breast, prostate, and urogenital tract. This master regulator of epithelial stem cells turns out to be the p63 gene, a close relative to the well-known tumor-suppressing p53 gene. W...

Fast and slow -- How the spinal cord controls the speed of movement

...function of nerves in spinal cords. With regard to regeneration of spinal cords following injury, for example, medical researchers need a template for a normal spinal cord in order to know if nerves are re-growing normally, Fetcho said. In Parkinson’s disease, researchers believe that a neurotransmitter releas...

Study shows isolation of stem cells may lead to a treatment for hearing loss

...rt is now we can test compounds that could promote regeneration of hair cells from these precursor cells in vitro, we can study the genes expressed during the transition from stem cells to hair cells, and we can think of developing strategies for cell replacement, i.e. transplanting these cochlear stem cells into...

The sturdier sex? -- Study by Pittsburgh scientists finds female stem cells work better

...ressing muscle fibers. They then calculated the regeneration index (RI) ?the ratio of dystrophin-positive fibers per 100,000 donor cells. Only one of the 10 male populations of implanted stem cells had an RI over 200. In contrast, 40 percent of the female stem cell populations had an RI higher than 200, and 60...

3 proteins may play important role in nerve-cell repair

...cell growth, differentiation and survival, and the regeneration of long parts of the cell called axons that carry the nerve impulses. Levels of cAMP drop in mammalian nerve cells as they mature, and this is thought to explain, in part, why mature nerve cells cannot regenerate damaged axons. "Our findings ...
