Man and mouse share genome structures

...ouse genome. Until now, they'd been missed by more standard genome analysis tools. Most exciting to Bernstein is the unusual density of histone tags spread over the regions of genome containing the HOX genes, which are key regulators of development. "In most of the genome, we see short stretches associated ...

New imaging method gives early indication if brain cancer therapy is effective, U-M study shows

...ishing their treatment, the participants underwent standard MRI to determine whether their tumor responded to the therapy. After three weeks ?more than two months before the final MRI scan ?researchers found significant differences between the patients' scans. Some areas reflected an increase in water diffus...

Protein Packages Found To Activate Genes; May Be What Regulates Development And Disease

...vered with tags. This was not seen before by using standard techniques, or by studying one gene at a time. "Finding them was a complete surprise," Bernstein admits. HOX genes, as noted, play vital roles in embryo development. Understanding how they are regulated should help researchers determine the molecule...

Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

...Parkinson's disease. Levodopa, considered the gold standard of current treatment, enables the brain to replenish its dwindling supply of dopamine, sidetracking the destructive course of Parkinson's disease. But eventually the treatment can backfire. “Levodopa generally works great for several years, but then...

MSI releases 'moleculizer' - a new approach to simulation of intracellular biochemical networks
