How sneaky HIV escapes cells

...ped exosomes as a quality control mechanism to get rid of clumped proteins, which are generally broken and useless. However, just as retroviruses exploit other cell processes for their own ends, it now appears they rely on exosomes to get out of infected cells and infect fresh cells. As such, drugs that...

Studies to find better ways to preserve human eggs, ovarian tissue under way

...” says Dr. Emmi. “You are concentrating on getting rid of cancer cells.” Also, if a woman has breast cancer, for example, hormones needed to induce ovulation could be problematic because many breast cancer cells have estrogen receptors. As pieces of a puzzle come together, Dr. Song notes scientists al...

Children of smokers have more than 5 times higher levels of a nicotine toxin

...mune system can protect from the disease but can’t rid the body of the virus, people remain infected and can become re-infected or infect others through saliva. “Children in day care settings, for example, or adults who are sexually active, can pass along the virus,” explained Spector. “It becomes a ...

For many insects, winter survival is in the genes

... Denlinger has no plans to develop a method to get rid of heat-shock proteins in insect pests, but he says that it is important to understand how insects survive through the winter. "There may be steps we can take to disrupt the diapause process and make an insect vulnerable to low temperatures," Denl...

Heart failure: Intervention possibilities from imaging programmed cell loss

...grammed cell loss—the body's normal way of getting rid of unneeded or abnormal cells—may help in early identification of those individuals who are at risk of developing heart failure, say researchers in the April Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

Need oxygen? Cells know how to spend and save

...w oxygen, the scientists found the cells unable to rid themselves of COX4-1. "It's remarkable that the one-celled yeast also swap COX subunits in response to hypoxia, but because they lack HIF-1, they accomplish the swap in a completely different way," says Semenza. "This suggests that adapting mitoc...

Synthetic peptide targets latent papilloma virus infections

...ncer each year. Once infected, it's difficult to rid oneself of the virus because it hides as a latent DNA in cells of the epithelial tissue, such as skin and the lining of the vagina and cervix, and spreads as these cells divide. The UC Berkeley team created a protein fragment, or peptide, that succ...

Using techniques and tricks perfected while working on the mammoth sample, Asara purified the protein, identified as collagen, and, with the enzyme trypsin, broke it down into fragments, or peptides, 10 to 20 amino acids long. The pe...

Twin studies reveal genetic components leading to cardiac and kidney disease

...iabetes. "Normally kidneys filter the blood to rid the body of accumulated toxins. In healthy kidneys, more than a million little ‘baskets?or ‘sieves?filter out the bad chemicals without leaking ‘good?cells or proteins," said O’Connor, adding that how well these filters work appears to be a heritable...

Scientists create dual-modality microbeads to improve identification of disease biomarkers

...After 15-20 minutes, the butanol is removed to get rid of any remaining nanoparticles that didn’t get incorporated into the beads and the beads are washed with ethanol. Then the beads are coated with a polymer that creates a hydrophilic surface on the beads. This allows the beads to be functionalized by ...
