...gh Lynactivity and the ability of these B cells to resist apoptosis. Theauthors suggest that Lyn is involved in the development of B-CLL andthat this enzyme therefore represents an attractive target for therapy.The study will appear online on January 13 in advance of publication inthe February 1 print editi...

Poplar trees redirect resources in response to simulated attack

...elieves there may be an increase in compounds that resist microbial attack after plants have soaked up atmospheric carbon dioxide, therefore countering the effects of fossil-fuel combustion. This is a strategy of carbon sequestration -- the provision of long-term storage of carbon so that the buildup of car...

Purdue proves concept of using nano-materials for drug discovery

...h are directly responsible for cancer's ability to resist anti-tumor chemotherapy drugs. These proteins act as tiny pumps that quickly remove chemotherapy drugs from tumor cells, making the treatment less effective. Cancer cells exposed to chemotherapy drugs produce a disproportionately large number of the ...

HIV vaccine trial breaks ground for future research

...d with the vaccine and caused a greater ability to resist the virus. For the non-white group, the authors suggest that biological differences in immune response or genetic markers of resistance to infection could have made the vaccine more effective. Also examined in the trial were the immune responses to ...

New Drugs For Bad Bugs: UF Approach Could Bolster Antibiotic Arsenal

They also can lead to better and cheaper medicines and plant products like cotton, paper and rubber. "A persistent challenge of genomics is how to capture, analyze and distribute the massi...

Immune system's distress signal tells bacteria when to strike back

... Many harmful bacteria have already learned how to resist the drugs developed to treat them. Scientists are now looking at alternatives, such as ways to block or scramble the chemical messages that allow microbes to eavesdrop on their hosts or to conspire together to mount an attack. "We chose to study thi...

Deep thinking: Scientists sequence a cold-loving marine microbe

Purdue scientists may have found key to halting spinal cord damage

...imer's diseases - all of which progress slowly and resist treatment - Shi's team decided to see if the chemical was present in another slow-developing, seemingly untreatable condition: the degeneration of the spinal cord after initial traumatic injury. "Unlike most other parts of the body, spinal cord tiss...

Colorful bacteria more dangerous

Techniques available to detect soil that inhibits destructive soybean pest

...in soybean-producing areas. "Using plants bred to resist pests is not the complete answer, so it's important to find suppressive mechanisms," Westphal said. "Bio-control is much more desirable than using chemicals in order to limit damage to the environment." In a paper published in the just-released Marc...
