A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty

...adotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) is secreted and sets off a chain reaction of chemical messages. Inside the hypothalamus, nerve cells release GnRH in a 'round-the-clock,' pulsatile fashion. With each secretion, the pituitary gland is stimulated to secrete its own messengers, lutenizing hormone (LH) and ...

Man and mouse share genome structures

...se unique chromatin structures could be activating sets of HOX genes for specific developmental programs. This global activation may have implications for understanding mechanisms behind certain cancers, Bernstein believes. For example, proteins that place methyl groups on histones can, when mutated, cau...

It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

...e normal. The tumors grew at the same rate in both sets of mice, suggesting that more tumors get started in the mice with extra IGF2, notes Feinberg. "In the mice, loss of imprinting of IGF2 roughly doubles the risk that the genetic mutation will cause a tumor," says postdoctoral fellow Atsushi Kaneda, P...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...pens is unclear, but the answer could be that iron sets off a kind of chemical warfare in the marine ecosystem, according to University of Maine oceanographer Mark Wells. And diatoms may not always come out on top. In collaboration with a large Japanese research program, Wells and a team of scientists fr...

An entropy-based gene selection method for cancer classification using microarray data

... The algorithm was applied to three different data sets and the results obtained were compared to work done by others using the same data sets. This study presents an entropy-based iterative algorithm for selecting genes from microarray data that are able to classify various cancer sub-types with high ac...

Scientists document complex genomic events leading to the birth of new genes

...ers, the RGP gene cluster may help to explain what sets apart humans and other primates from the rest of the animal kingdom. Human chromosome 2 has always intrigued primate biologists; it formed from the fusion of two mid-sized ape chromosomes and is the only cytogenetic distinction separating humans fr...

Research Using Mouse Models Reveals A Novel Key Player In The Initiation Of Colon Cancer

This study sets a new paradigm for gastrointestinal tumorigenesis, in that genetic events outside the epithelial layer itself have a profound effect on tumor initiation. Thus it appears likely that this study will foster additional research into other mesenchymal ge...

Self-assembled nano-sized probes allow Penn researchers to see tumors through flesh and skin

Emissive polymersomes perform much like in vivo imaging systems that use semiconductor-based "quantum dots." These quantum dots, how...

Opposing fat metabolism pathways triggered by a single gene

...colleagues show that in its normal actions, nhr-49 sets in motion two opposing pathways: it increases expression of a gene acs-2, which leads to reduction of fat content, and it increases expression of another gene fat-7, which, by reducing acs-2, increases fat content. In its function, nhr-49 resembles a...
