Nanowires can detect molecular signs of cancer, scientists find

...s, these receptors allowed real-time monitoring of telomerase binding and activity. Lieber says nanowire arrays could easily be scaled up to detect many different cancer markers -- more of which are being found all the time, thanks to the current boom in proteomics. Widespread use of these cancer markers in he...

Discarded placentas deliver researchers promising cells similar to embryonic stem cells

Master regulatory gene found that guides fate of blood-producing stem cells

...ng HSC fate-for example homebox, wnt, notch 1, and telomerase genes. Emerson and colleagues figured that one transcription factor, called NF-Y, was required for activating promoters of all of these genes. What's more, they found that fully assembled NF-Y was activated in stem cells and disappeared when the stem...

DNA end caps may lead to cancer treatments, UT Southwestern researchers report

...divide. But in most cancer cells, an enzyme called telomerase keeps the telomeres from shortening, making the cells immortal and potentially malignant. "Drugs that influence these mechanisms might be used to slow replicative aging in normal cells and increase the efficacy of telomerase-inhibition therapies fo...
