Fox Chase Cancer Center scientists identify immune-system mutation

...r-deficient mice his team discovered represent the second time that a naturally occurring mutant strain has been found and bred at Fox Chase. In 1981, the laboratory group of Melvin Bosma, Ph.D., discovered mice with severe combined immune deficiency (SCID), a condition that also affects humans. In addition...

Termites feed through good vibrations

...responses by the termites: one to block size and a second to signal source. The artificial signal mimicked the characteristic frequency of the wooden block, so the termites were tricked into believing that a small block with the artificial signal was the same size as a large block; thus no preference was ob...

Genome of deadly amoeba shows surprising complexity, evidence of lateral gene transfer

...ple and causes as many as 100,000 deaths a year -- second only to malaria as a cause of morbidity and mortality from a protist. The disease caused by E. histolytica is called amebiasis. The sequencing of E. histolytica was a collaborative effort led by The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) in Rockville...

Antibiotic Resistant Bacterium Uses Sonar-like Strategy to “See?Enemies or Prey

...ronment. One substance sticks to foreign cells.The second substance reports back and tells the Enterococcus to makethe toxin. If no cells are in the area, the first substance sticks tothe second, preventing it from reporting back to the Enterococcus, andas a result, no toxin is made. According to Gilmore, “...

Researchers reveal the infectious impact of salmon farms on wild salmon

This second round of lice larvae can re-infect the fish in the school and can spread to other previously unexposed populations coming from geographically disparate regions. "At about the 30 km mark from the farm, those lice become reproductive," says Volpe. "In...

Female sex hormones play a vital role in defense against sexually transmitted diseases

...but only if the virus doses were weakened. In the second study, just like in the first study, mice were treated with hormones but, before being exposed to the real herpes virus, they received a vaccine Surprisingly, unlike in the first study, the progesterone-treated mice and the mice that received no hor...

Gene variations explain drug dose required to control seizures

... patients with epilepsy. Moreover, a variant of a second gene, called SCN1A, with activity in the brain, was found significantly more often in patients on the highest doses of both carbamazepine and phenytoin. SCN1A has been implicated in many inherited forms of epilepsy and is the drug target for phenytoi...

Muscle-targeted gene therapy reverses rare muscular dystrophy in mice

...for 24 weeks post-injection, the team reported. A second gene therapy strategy, in which the enzyme involved in Pompe disease is inserted into the liver, is also under investigation at Duke, said Koeberl. In the January 2005 issue of Molecular Therapy, the researchers reported that the liver-targeted metho...
