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

... that regulate HOX genes are capable of causing or suppressing tumors. Technological breakthrough Bernstein has been studying chromosome wrappings for five years as a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Stuart Schreiber. Together they worked out techniques to examine the way genes are packaged in yeast. To g...

...s were essential to the RNAi process that had been suppressing expression of the fluorescence gene. Some of the ..., it has not yet been effective for experimentally suppressing gene expression in living mammals. Identifying each step in the RNAi process could lead to more succ...

Studies reveal methods viruses use to sidestep immune system

...producing interferon, which neutralizes viruses by suppressing their replication. The researchers also investigated why cells with functioning RIG-I protein still had persistent HCV infection. In a study to appear in PNAS, Dr. Gale and his group found an explanation for HCV's tenaciousness. Once HCV infects the...

Molecule that usually protects infection-fighting cells may cause plaque deposits inside arteries

...fat food. "This was dramatic evidence that showed suppressing AIM function translates into prevention of atherosclerosis," Dr. Miyazaki said. Atherosclerosis, known as "hardening of the arteries," occurs when the inside walls of an artery become thicker and less elastic. This narrows the space for blood flow ...

NSAID drug protects against intestinal tumors in mice, despite poor diet and gene losses

...he p21 gene, this can have an overriding affect on suppressing tumor formation caused by either loss of other tumor suppressor genes or diet," says Yang. "We are testing this concept further, including exactly how the p21 gene gets activated." ...

Blink, and the brain misses it

...ents or objects in the outside world. "Transiently suppressing these brain areas involved in visual awareness during blinks may be a neural mechanism for preventing the brain from becoming aware of the eyelid sweeping down over the pupil during a blink and the world going dark," explains Professor Frith. In summ...

Major breakthrough in the treatment of cancers and infectious diseases

...lations, Dr. Veillette's team has established that suppressing EAT-2 results in the production of NK cells that are much more effective at killing cancer cells. Inhibiting the function of EAT-2 with medications could therefore stimulate the killer function of NK cells, and increase their capacity to destroy canc...

A protein in the eye may prevent immune response and protect eyes from disease

...by which F4/80 stimulates the production of immune suppressing T Cells is unknown, the team believes that the protein may be involved in cell-cell communications. The presence of F4/80 cells in other immune privileged sites, such as the brain and placenta, and its exclusion from T cell zones in the spleen sugge...

Molecular miners find pain relief drugs from the sea

...ic in our society the need for more effective pain suppressing compounds is a priority. ACV1 may fill this unmet need," Associate Professor Livett says. ...

Retina adapts to seek the unexpected, ignore the commonplace

These findings provide evidence that the ultimate goal of the visual system is not simply to construct internally an exact reproduction of the external world, Meister and his colleagues write in Nature. Rather, the sys...

Researchers develop gene therapy to reverse pulmonary arterial hypertension

...or programmed cell death--which promotes cancer by suppressing the body's ability to limit excessive cell growth. Armed with this new information and using animal models, the researchers developed a nebulized and inhaled gene therapy to deliver an inactive Survivin-mutant via a virus--known in science as a "dom...

Texas scientists discover how a hepatitis C protein promotes liver cancer

...roteins targets a cell protein that is crucial for suppressing the development of tumors, interfering with its ability to control cell proliferation," Lemon said. "By knocking out this 'tumor suppressor' and promoting the proliferation of liver cells, this viral protein is setting up the liver for cancer." Acco...

HIV accessory protein disables host immunity via receptor-protein intermediary

...y regulating cell differentiation, cell death, and suppressing host-cell immune response proteins. Weiner's group found that Vpr binds to the glucocorticoid receptor, but it remained unclear whether the GR pathway was required for Vpr to commandeer the host cell's machinery. "We started to realize a few years ...

How can we protect patients with weakened immune systems from influenza?

...oth chemotherapy and stem cell transplants involve suppressing the patients' immune defenses. A third group of patients has chromosome 22q.11.2 deletion syndrome, a congenital multisystem disorder that impairs the immune system. Children's Hospital is a world leader in studying and treating this syndrome. Three...

Losing sleep undoes the rejuvenating effects new learning has on the brain
