Genes In The Interferon System Important In Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Two genes with very strong associations withthe disease systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have been identified bya team of scientists headed by researchers at the Department of MedicalSciences at Uppsala University. The findings are being published todayon the Web page of the...

Novel technology detects human DNA mutations

...e, a highly sensitive gold nanoparticle, creates a strong signal accurately indicating the presence of a specific target SNP. Proof of principle, reproducibility, and the robust, simple and rapid characteristics of this technology were demonstrated withunamplified DNA samples representing all possible forms...

Newly discovered virus linked to childhood lung disorders and Kawasaki disease

... so were unavailable at thetime. The statistically strong association with Kawasaki disease,however, was "quite surprising." Noting that previous attempts to linkKawasaki disease to bacteria or other viruses had failed and thusjustified healthy skepticism about the present findings, Dr. McIntoshpointed out ...

Emory Eye Center Implants Its First Retinal Chips In Patients With Retinitis Pigmentosa

Scientists develop new color-coded test for protein folding

...10, the blue solution turned reddish once again--a strong indication that some cytochrome c molecules had refolded into their original three-dimensional shape. In fact, the experiment showed that, when attached to gold film, cytochrome c can fold, unfold and refold countless times depending on the acidity o...
