North & South American researchers find architectural abnormalities in T. cruzi ribosome

...nown there was something strange about the genetic translational machinery of the Chagas parasite. Unlike in other organisms, an identical string of 39 nucleotides is spliced onto the lead end of every mRNA molecule, no matter which protein is to be made. And, as Levin and his colleagues discovered years ago, the ...

Key to acute lung injury lies in Ang2 protein

...d the study is an example of true bench-to-bedside translational research. "All the work was initially done on mice in which we found that the Ang2 protein was involved in HALI," said Bhandari. "We also defined how the protein creates lung injury and then we showed its clinical relevance by documenting its presenc...

Researchers first to map gene that regulates adult stem cell growth

...g way," Van Zant said. "This is a great example of translational research ?from the most basic type of genetic research all the way to possible treatments for patients." One big obstacle chemotherapy patients face is stem cell loss after treatments. This limits the dosage amount and types of chemotherapy that c...

Massey researchers induce cell death in leukemia

...Steven Grant, M.D., Massey's associate director of translational research, interactions between bortezomib and romidepsin (Gloucester Pharmaceuticals) and bortezomib with belinostat (aka PXD101 from CuraGen Corporation and TopoTarget A/S), were examined in human CLL cells isolated from five patients. Bortezomib dr...

New compound prevents alcoholic behavior, relapse in animals by blocking stress response

The new findings build on previous work showing the effectiveness of blocking certain CRF receptors—proteins that bind CRF and make it active—in treating alcohol dependence i...

Researchers shed light on mechanism of action used by anti-cancer drug

...teven Grant, M.D., Massey’s associate director for translational research and co-leader of the cancer center’s cancer cell biology program, VCU researchers identified a mechanism by which sorafenib inhibits protein translation, and which may be involved in reducing expression of pro-survival factors, such as Mcl-1...
