Protein sensor for fatty acid buildup in mitochondria

... of Sciences (PNAS). "The results of this study show how and where a critical biochemical pathway for fatty acid breakdown is controlled by a specific enzyme," said Charles Rock, Ph.D., a member of the Infectious Diseases department at St. Jude. "It offers an explanation of why the absence of this enzy...

Finnish scientists discovered a new approach to treat virus-induced lymphomas

...their wt p53 status. Moreover, the researchers show that Nutlin-3a has striking anti-tumor activity in vivo in a mouse xenograft model for the PEL. Nutlin-3a treatment resulted in a marked regression of all tumors in the treated animals in two weeks. These results demonstrate that p53 reactivation via...

Breakthrough in understanding type-2 diabetes as key genes identified
