Researchers track how spores break out of dormant state

... of new countermeasures that identify the earliest stages of a wide range of spore mediated diseases, including botulism, gas gangrene and pulmonary anthrax,” said Alexander Malkin, senior author from LLNL’s Biosciences and Biotechnology Division. “But it’s also important to gain fundamental insights into t...

Study shows big power of small RNAs, not just proteins, in halting cancer

...rlier this year, concluded that even in the latest stages of cancer, reactivation of a previously damaged p53 pathway caused cancer tumors to stop growing and even eliminate themselves by activating an immune response in surrounding healthy cells. Most suspected that proteins would be revealed as key to th...

Researchers shed light on shrinking of chromosomes

..., “we think that the ‘super condensation’ at later stages helps to disentangle such chromosomes and acts as a back-up mechanism to rescue separation defects.” The EMBL researchers found that an enzyme called Aurora kinase is crucially involved in this process. Blocking this enzyme abolishes late condensat...

Migration alert -- How tumor cells home in on the lymphatic system

Moreover, once incorporated into the network, adult-born neurons in the study also remained dynamic and capable of continuous change. This method provides a mechanism fo...

'Smart' mice teach scientists about learning process, brain disorders

.... NR2B previously has been implicated in the early stages of learning. The new research showed that when Cdk5 is removed from the brain, the levels of NR2B significantly increase, and the mice are primed to learn, Dr. Bibb said. "We made the animals ‘smarter,’ but in doing so and applying this techno...
