Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...ovide critical guideposts for scientists trying to repair damaged or diseased nervous systems. Motor neurons transmit messages from the brain and spinal cord, dictating almost every movement in the body from the wiggling of a toe to the rolling of an eyeball. The new development could one day help victims...

Deficient DNA Repair Capacity Associated With Increased Risk Of Breast Cancer

Deficiencies in the ability of cells to repair damaged DNA are associated with an increased risk ...he Journal of the National Cancer Institute. DNA repair is the system of defenses designed to protect the integrity of the genome. Studies have suggested t...

Enzyme, lost in most mammals, is shown to protect against UV-induced skin cancer

...ion.Thus, most mammals, including humans, can only repair these lesionsthrough a much less direct and elaborate process called nucleotideexcision repair.In the new work, Dr. Bert van der Horst and colleagues studied theeffects of CPD and 6-4PP lesions by providing mice with transgenesencoding CPD and 6-4PP ...

Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

...tilage, even in a healthy person, can't re-grow or repair itself. "It's a steeper challenge that would require additional technology such as light-activated gene therapy (LAGT) to site-specifically target the genes to the edge of the damaged cartilage during arthroscopic surgery, but we're looking to use t...

Molecular machine may lead to new drugs to combat human diseases

...targeted trans-splicing technique has been used to repair hemoglobin infected with sickle cell anemia. The new structure provides scientists with tools to expand on ways to harness this molecular machine, Golden said. The other researchers on this study were Hajeong Kim, graduate student, and Elaine Chase,...

Vital step in cellular migration described by UCSD medical researchers

...ent of cells within the body during growth, tissue repair and the body's immune response to invading pathogens, has been demonstrated by researchers in the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine. Published in the March 27 online edition of Nature Cell Biology and the journal's upcomin...

Scientists identify genetic pathways essential to RNA interference

...d with the regulation of DNA itself, including the repair of DNA damage. "These new steps indicate there is more to RNAi than RNA destruction," says Kim. "And the connection to DNA damage pathways, which was totally unexpected, suggests a potential connection between RNAi and the control of cell division in...

Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

..., promises to have a place for both protection and repair in Parkinson's disease,?said Dennis Steindler, Ph.D., director of the McKnight Brain Institute and a professor of neuroscience. “It is important to appropriately introduce the GDNF into the Parkinson's disease setting, where that introduction can pro...

Nano-Probes Allow an Inside Look at Cell Nuclei

...reactions inside nuclei, such as how proteins help repair DNA after irradiation. They have already visualized the dots' journey from the area surrounding the nucleus to inside the nucleus, a feat that opens the door for real-time observations of nuclear trafficking mechanisms. They also hope to target other...

DNA Recombination and Repair—A New Twist to RecA Function

...e of the shared sequence. It can also initiate the repair of DNA lesions during replication—the process by which a DNA molecule is copied to make two. RecA is also an ATPase, an enzyme capable of hydrolyzing (breaking down) ATP, when bound to DNA. RecA uses ATP to carry out strand exchange over long sequen...
