Newly-discovered class of genes determines ?and restricts ?stem cell fate

... cells: it directs them to become melanocytes, but simultaneously prevents them from differentiating completely. "It gets the show going, but at the same time, prevents the final act," says Epstein. "I call this dual function a "biological capacitor," because Pax3 tells the cell: Get ready to go, but at the same ti...

Leukemia Drug Breakthrough Study In New England Journal Of Medicine

...form of pre-leukemia. Given in pill form, Revlimid simultaneously blocks the growth of new blood vessels that nourish tumors (anti-angiogenesis) and stimulates the immune system to fight cancer cells. The study is reported in the Feb.10 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Nearly 90 percent of MDS patient...

Researchers develop rapid diagnostic tool for pathogen identification

...echnology platform, called “Mass Tag PCR,?that can simultaneously screen for multiple infectious agents. The new technology is addressed in a paper published in the February issue of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Emerging Infectious Diseases. This new platform is demonstrated in an assay th...

Molecular Motors Cooperate In Moving Cellular Cargo, Study Shows

...ned on or off in a fashion that prevents them from simultaneously dragging the peroxisome." In the future, Selvin wants to combine FIONA and an optical trap technique to monitor the speed and direction of a peroxisome, and the force acting upon it. "By measuring force we can determine how many molecular motors ar...

To control germs, scientists deploy tiny agents provocateurs

... types of quorum sensing are beneficial, so we are simultaneously searching for compounds that selectively turn on group behaviors." Using new combinatorial chemistry techniques, Blackwell and her team are screening through hundreds of molecules at a time. The researchers have so far unveiled three promising organ...

Researchers make gains in understanding antibiotic resistance

...otics that possess the ability to bind to interact simultaneously with different, nearby sites on the ribosome represented by different classes of antibiotics," he said. "The idea is to take a bit of one antibiotic and tie it to another. So, if resistance arises due to a mutation in one site, there is still anothe...

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

...that causes ALS, the EPFL researchers were able to simultaneously deliver a normal version of the gene to motor neuron cells using a single delivery mechanism. "This is the first proof of principle in the human form of a disease of the nervous system in which you can silence the gene and at the same time produce an...

Scientists discover that three overlapping signals in embryo help get the backbone right

... combinations, finding the most dramatic effect by simultaneously knocking out noggin, follistatin, and chordin. Harland noted that the signaling pathway they blocked is one of several developmental pathways proceeding at the same time in the embryo. While BMP antagonists allow the formation of the back and belly,...

Marine sponge yields nanoscale secrets

...actively promotes the formation of the glass while simultaneously serving as a template to guide the shape of the growing mineral (glass) that it produces. These discoveries are significant because they represent a low temperature, biotechnological, catalytic route to the nanostructural fabrication of valuable mat...

Researchers develop assay that could be applied to drug screening

...colleagues Christien Merrifield and David Perrais, simultaneously measured the minute movements made by coated pits as they invaginated and detected membrane scission, the process by which a coated pit is converted into a clathrin coated vesicle. In further experiments, the researchers showed how proteins linked to...

New miniaturised chip dramatically reduces time taken for DNA analysis

...from 315 million in 1999. The report was launched simultaneously at several UN headquarters around the world. "The challenge of ensuring the future of our environment is pressing and concerns us all, whether we work in education, science, culture or communication," UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizat...

Mosaic mouse technique offers a powerful new tool to study diseases and genetics

... which would result in a mutant cell. This process simultaneously activates the green fluorescent protein, which turns the mutant cell green. "If there is no recombination, there are neither green nor mutant cells," Luo explains. "So even if only one cell turns green, we know it has to contain the mutated gene of ...

Bioinformatics reveals new gene regulation system

...rawn by the team was correct. Israeli researchers simultaneously showed through 'wet' biology experiments in Streptomyces bacteria that a transcription factor from this family represses Nrd gene expression in the living bacterial cell, confirming the Russian researchers' predictions. Confident that they had identi...

Enlisting genomics to understand flu evolution
