Molecular biology fills gaps in knowledge of bat evolution

...ats. These microbats - also known for their highly specialized echolocation - originated about 52 to 50 million years ago during a lush period of significant global warming in a region that is now North America. This latest research helps fill gaps in the evolutionary history of one of the most diverse group of...

Source of molecular triggers in cutaneous T cell lymphoma identified

... CTCL cells require antigenic stimuli delivered by specialized dendritic cells of the epidermis, referred to as Langerhans cells (LC), in order to replicate. To determine the nature of the activating antigen, Carole Berger, a research scientist in dermatology set up a physiologic laboratory system mimicking the...

Molecular machine may lead to new drugs to combat human diseases

...sly believed to have no function actually may play specialized roles in cell behavior. While humans have introns, they don't have Group I introns. Many pathogens that cause human diseases, however, do have Group I introns, including the HIV opportunistic infections pneumocystis, a form of pneumonia, and thrush,...

Muscle-targeted gene therapy reverses rare muscular dystrophy in mice

...ase. The DNA coding for the enzyme was linked to a specialized DNA "promoter" region that restricted its activity to muscle. The investigators either injected the viral particles into the muscle or injected it intravenously in Pompe disease mice. Six weeks after muscular injection with the virus containing the ...

Plant hemoglobins: Oxygen handlers critical for nitrogen fixation

...oglobins accumulate in root nodules and give these specialized organs their distinctive red color. Legume root nodules accommodate bacteria, called rhizobia, that reduce atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia, which is subsequently used by the plant for growth and colonization of nitrogen-poor soils. Symbiotic nitrogen...

Placenta Is A Rich Source Of Blood Stem Cells

... increase in number without giving rise to mature, specialized cells. ''There must be something unique about the placenta that nurtures blood stem cells and discourages them from differentiating,'' says Dr. Stuart Orkin, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at Children's and DFCI, and a senior investi...

Other applications include customized chips for space travel in order to monitor microbes inside spacecraft or to detect life on other planets. An obvious prerequisite for such miniaturized labs are appropriate microcompartments for th...

Gene Vaccine Protects Mice Against Development Of Her2/neu Breast Cancer

...n.In addition, the VRP-neu preferentially homes to specialized immunesystem cells known as dendritic cells, and infects them. Inside,VRP-neu produces high levels of the HER2/neu protein, which thedendritic cells then display on the outside of their cell surface. Thisis, in fact, a neat trick, says Lachman, becau...
