Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine

...ht be unable to defuse. "This study was the first time a genome-wide approach has been used for an infectious disease," Goldstein said. "Past studies have looked at individual candidate genes. Since different people respond differently to infections, a better understanding of how immune system genes cont...

One species, many genomes

...Africa or Asia has been investigated for the first time by research teams from Tübingen, Germany, and California led by Detlef Weigel from the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology. The results were surprising: The extent of the genetic differences far exceeds the expectations for such a streaml...

Research identifies protein that signals flowering in squash plants

...anipulating the photoperiodic control of flowering time is an important objective in crop breeding and development programs, because it can aid in optimizing crop yields and other traits for local environmental conditions. Experimental evidence indicates that a flowering-inducing substance, known as fl...

Researchers discover inherited mutation for leukemia

...r growth. "Our findings identify for the first time a gene that appears to be associated with hereditary CLL," says coauthor John C. Byrd, professor of internal medicine and a CLL specialist. "They also show the importance of the gene in the pathogenesis of CLL, and direct us to target this gene w...

Agent slows aging in mice

...uses associated with aging. “This is the first time to my knowledge when an agent has been shown to extend median life span in three laboratories,” says Miller, professor of pathology at the U-M Medical School and associate director of the U-M Geriatrics Center.

Enzyme delivered in smaller package protects cells from radiation damage

... incubated at body temperature for 7 days at which time colonies of greater than 50 cells were counted. The MnSOD transfected cells were significantly more resistant to ionizing radiation than the non-tranfected cells. However, there was no significant difference in survival between MnSOD-minicircle a...

Cells re-energize to come back from the brink of death

Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

...osely monitored. “People have talked for a long time about a balance of ‘good guys’ and ‘bad guys’ within the inflammatory process, either causing harm or alleviating the disease. The current work reinforces the idea that inflammation is not simply the bad guy that many people think it is.” The work...

Dr Hyatt said helping the Tassie devil to survive the DFTD threat was crucial, not just because it...

Hormone helps mice 'hibernate,' survive starvation

...wth factor 21 (FGF21), are described for the first time in a study appearing online today in Cell Metabolism. FGF21, triggered in starving mice by a specific cellular receptor that controls the use of fat as energy, spurs a metabolic shift to burning stored fats instead of carbohydrates and induces a...
