Common cancer gene sends death order to tiny killer

... themselves can act to either promote cancer or to stop cancer spread." To test their idea, the team first chemically damaged the DNA of two sets of colon cancer cells, one missing p53 and the other containing healthy p53. They then looked for any of the 500 known human microRNAs that are activated onl...

Old memory traces in brain may trigger chronic pain

...ion, Apkarian said. “To control it, they tried to stop the sensory input to the brain. ”We are saying there’s a cognitive memory and emotional component in the brain that seems abnormal. Easing that may have a bigger effect on suffering.” Chronic pain is not caused by a single mechanism, Apkarian not...

Piping, however, continues in the swarm, as the bees need to make the queen fly again once a new nest site has been selected. “Drew Pierce did this project last...

To argue we should do nothing about infected prostitutes during an AIDS epidemic because of a fear of creating a stigma against the infected would be like an animal rights activist claiming that a rabid dog must be allowed to run free in a neighb...

Sleepless for science: Flies show link between sleep, immune system in Stanford study

...ptible to infection. "When flies get sick, they stop sleeping," said David Schneider, PhD, assistant professor of microbiology and immunology. "Disrupting sleep in turn disrupts the immune system, which makes them even more infected and it's downhill from there in a 'spiral of death.'" Schneider is the...

First demonstration of new hair follicle generation in an animal model

...king wnt proteins, they also found that they could stop the production of hair follicles in healed skin. Increased wnt signaling doubled the number of new hair follicles. This suggests that the embryonic window created by the wound-healing process can be used to manipulate hair-follicle regeneration, l...

Genome of yellow fever/dengue fever mosquito sequenced

...would make the mosquito resistant to the virus and stop its role as a vector for disease. Although that scenario is challenging, the payoff is potentially great, Tu said. "By introducing TEs in a more or less random way to see what happens to the laboratory mosquitoes, the TEs become a tool to study t...

Hives ferment a yeasty brew, attract beetle pest

...e hive can be saved," says Tumlinson. "If they can stop the beetles and remove eggs in the hive, the hive recovers." Honeybees are of major economic importance in agriculture as the major pollinating force for much orchard fruit and vegetables. Many of these fruits and vegetables will not produce without...

Leeches ferry infection among newts

...says Raffel . "When newts get infected, they often stop breeding, apparently to shore up their immune system to fight off the disease. But that comes at the cost of having fewer offspring," he adds. Findings from the study may also indicate that human activities could lead to increases in the infection...

Kansas City banned weddings and funerals if more than 20 people were to be in attendance. New York mandated staggered shi...

Sandia researchers take new approach to studying how cells respond to pathogens

Most existing research into how immune cells respond has been done by looking at large cell populations. The Sandia researchers say information gathered from a large...
