Pair of cancer genes found to drive both cell migration and division

...eba's own PTEN, the human version cleaned up PIP3, restoring its normal distribution within the cell. This indicates that human cells likely use the new mechanism to divide as well. The next steps are to study the roles of the two genes in dividing cells by seeing if controlling the location of the PTEN and P...

Researchers pioneer new gene therapy technique using natural repair process

...the interleukin-2 receptor (IL-2R) in human cells, restoring both gene function and the production of the IL-2R protein. Mutations in the IL-2R gene are associated with a rare immune disease called severe combined immunodeficiency disease, or SCID. Children with SCID are unable to successfully fight off infect...

Stem cell treatment improves mobility after spinal cord injury

...derived treatment they developed was successful in restoring the insulation tissue for neurons in rats treated seven days after the initial injury, which led to a recovery of motor skills. But the same treatment did not work on rats that had been injured for 10 months. The findings point to the potential of us...

...first step toward investigating such potential for restoring fertility. In addition, the findings open the door for future studies examining whether restoration of ovaries could postpone the hormonal effects of menopause and could represent an alternative to hormone replacement therapy.

Study shows eutrophic lakes may not recover for a millennium

...eveloping larger buffers around lakes and streams, restoring wetlands and encouraging the use of new manure storage and handling processes are also steps that can be taken to reduce phosphorus runoff. "Anything we can do to reduce the erosion of phosphorus is going to be beneficial," Carpenter says. ...

No small feat: First ever gene therapy success for muscular dystrophy achieved

...by binding to the key proteins on either end, thus restoring the cell's outside scaffolding and reestablishing the missing link to key structures inside the cell. Clearly, the authors are most excited about the impressive results achieved in their experiments using systemic gene delivery, which proved there c...
