Genes In The Interferon System Important In Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

... thyrosinkinase enzyme,whose function is to convey signals from interferon outside the cellsto the cell nucleus."We found that genetic variants of thyrosinkase protect against SLE. Itprobably has an inhibited function that blocks the interferon effect.It is therefore possible to imagine the development of me...

Elusive HIV shape change revealed; Key clue to how virus infects cells

...ce it binds, gp120 undergoes a shape change, which signals a companion protein, gp41, to begin a set of actions that enable HIV's membrane to fuse with the target cell's membrane. This fusion of membranes allows HIV to enter the cell and begin replicating. The structure of gp120 after it binds to the CD4 re...

HIV Patients May Be at Risk of Heart Problems When Taking Protease Inhibitor Drugs

...on in channels permits the exchange of biochemical signals within and between cells. After hearing of a case of heart rhythm disturbances in a patient taking protease inhibitors, the researchers looked for evidence of other patients with similar experiences. To do this, they used the U.S. Food and Drug Admin...

Research on Worms Yields Clues on Aging

...that the anticonvulsants stimulated transmissionof signals in nerves that control body movement.Scientists previously had found genetic mutations in C. elegans thataffect both the nervous system and life span. The researchers usedthese mutant worms to further pin down the mechanism by which theanticonvulsant...

Scientists seek answers on what activates deadly anthrax spores

...ogy, added, "Basic understanding of the regulatory signals that promote germination will enable discoveries leading to drugs that block the process." The research is being paid for by a $152,687 grant from the Southeast Regional Center of Excellence in Biodefense and Emerging Infections, based at Duke Unive...

Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

...suring of fluorescence, because PME gives brighter signals and collects more of that signal by eliminating the need for a prism to separate the light into colors." Metzker is also seeking to develop a chip-based imager than could be used in his overall project on sequencing-by-synthesis (SBS), which is fund...

Enzyme allows B cells to resist death, leading to leukemia

...the result of an undefined defect in theprogrammed signals that trigger normal B cell death (apoptosis). LivioTrentin and colleagues from Padua University School of Medicine nowdemonstrate that high levels of expression and altered cellularlocation of an enzyme in B cells known as Lyn, contributes to thedeve...

Beyond lithium for bipolar disorder

...its cellular function in sensing external chemical signals is unknown. The researchers also found that the gene called AD-CYAP1 was upregulated in the treated brain slices. This gene codes for a signaling molecule called PACAP in the brain and is known to be close to a chromosomal region that genetic studie...

Novel ultrafast laser detection of cancer cells also may improve understanding of stem cells
