Scientists ID molecular 'switch' in liver that triggers harmful effects of saturated and trans fats

...ightness of a light. Co-activators join with other regulatory proteins called transcription factors in controlling the expression of genes. Spiegelman and Jiandie Lin, PhD, the paper's lead author and a researcher at Dana-Farber, have previously discovered the PGC-1 co-activator family and several of its bioche...

Source of molecular triggers in cutaneous T cell lymphoma identified

...cells, after stimulation by LC, become functioning regulatory T (Treg) cells that suppress the immune responses of normal T cells to microbial agents. This may explain the susceptibility of patients with extensive CTCL to opportunistic infections. "Through understanding T cell and dendritic cell interactions, ...

Scientists seek answers on what activates deadly anthrax spores

...ctural Biology, added, "Basic understanding of the regulatory signals that promote germination will enable discoveries leading to drugs that block the process." The research is being paid for by a $152,687 grant from the Southeast Regional Center of Excellence in Biodefense and Emerging Infections, based at Du...

Studies reveal methods viruses use to sidestep immune system

... activate a transcription factor called interferon regulatory factor 3 (IRF-3). This protein turns on the genes responsible for producing interferon, which neutralizes viruses by suppressing their replication. The researchers also investigated why cells with functioning RIG-I protein still had persistent HCV i...

An entropy-based gene selection method for cancer classification using microarray data

...ideally identify genes involved in cancer-specific regulatory pathways. Here an entropy-based method is proposed that selects genes related to the different cancer classes while at the same time reducing the redundancy among the genes. Results The present study identifies a subset of features by maximizing th...

Unexpressed But Indispensable -- The DNA Sequences That Control Development

...to spot, the characteristic features of non-coding regulatory elements are largely unknown, making their discovery by simple sequence analysis difficult. In this issue, Greg Elgar and colleagues attack this problem by comparing the non-coding sequences of the human and the pufferfish. Since the last common anc...

How an AIDS-Related Cancer Unleashes Inflammation

...K2 creates inflammation that in turn activates the regulatory protein p38. p38, in turn, further increases activation of MK2. "We still don't know the mechanism by which kaposin B activates MK2," said Ganem. "Nor do we understand how this activation leads to activation of the upstream regulator of MK2, which i...
