Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

... Goldstein and his colleagues also examined brain sections taken at autopsy from humans with different stages of Alzheimer's disease. They detected the same kinds of swelling in those samples that they had seen in the mice. "This was a small, initial neuropathological study, but we believe that it is signifi...

Found: Missing sequence of the human Y chromosome

...999%, but despite this accomplishment, substantial sections ofchromosomal sequences were still missing.The Y chromosome, a sex chromosome that is specific to the human male,has posed a particular challenge to researchers attempting to decodeits sequence. It contains an extraordinary abundance of repetitiveele...

Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

Protein Packages Found To Activate Genes; May Be What Regulates Development And Disease

...d "gene chips" that rapidly scan millions of small sections of chromosomes to detect gene activity. But the sc... clusters in mice and humans boast relatively huge sections of chromatin completely covered with tags. This was not seen before by using standard techniques, or...

First 'atlas' of key brain genes could speed research on cancer, neurological diseases

...ping mice.Using genetic probes to investigate thin sections of mouse brains, thescientists found that only 349 of the TF genes were expressed inspecific regions, and not throughout the brain, as the majority were.They inferred that these 349 genes, therefore, controlled thedevelopment of the particular areas ...

Circles Of DNA Might Help Predict Success Of Stem Cell Transplantation

...one of countless combinations. The rings represent sections of DNA cut out of chromosomes during the mixing and matching of genes that are chosen to build a particular receptor. Each T cell uses the resulting combination of genes to make a receptor that lets the cell recognize a specific target. When stimulat...

Protein offers way to stop microscopic parasites in their tracks

... as rhomboid proteases, which are able to clip off sections of proteins near the surface of the cell membrane. Using other rhomboid proteases as guides, Brossier identified genes for five rhomboid proteases in Toxoplasma. Scientists showed that the parasite used at least four of those genes to make active pr...

Pulsating ultrasound enhances gene therapy for tumors

...ound in deep-sea invertebrates--was visible in all sections of the tumors exposed to pulsed-HIFU. Tumors not targeted with pulsed-HIFU showed negligible signs of the gene. An analysis showed reporter gene levels to be nine times higher in tumors treated with pulsed-HIFU compared with tumors left unexposed. ...

Silence the gene, save the cell: RNA interference as promising therapy for ALS

...roduced in the cell, where they bind with matching sections of messenger RNA. The cell identifies the resulting messenger RNA strand as faulty and chops it up. As a result, the genetic blueprint isn't delivered and the protein never gets made. "Gene silencing is an example of using "molecular scissors" at it...

Small species back-up giant marsupial climate change extinction claim

... 45,000 years ago," says Mr Price. "Other younger sections have a mixture of both large and small species that are habitat generalists or are species found in open areas, suggesting the landscape was evolving towards open grassland. "By the latest Pleistocene species dependent on wetter conditions disappear...

The two arrays, transmitter and receiver, are mounted on opposite sides of a drum that spins as it rises around the object (which is suspended in water), creating a stack of tomographic image slices whic...

High-powered gene profiles provide clues to genes involved in common form of lung cancer

...ology that makes it possible to zoom in on smaller sections of cell chromosomes than ever before, researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have identified nearly 100 chromosome regions where genes are either over-copied or missing in non-small cell lung cancer. The findings provide new clues about the loca...

Big differences in duplicated DNA distinguish chimp and human genomes

.... Among the human-only duplications, some of those sections of the genome are implicated in human developmental disorders such as spinal muscular atrophy and Prader-Willi syndrome. Parts of those duplicated segments have only single copies in the chimp genome, and it is possible that the chimpanzee is therefo...
