Researchers discover inherited mutation for leukemia

...e unneeded genes. But abnormal DNA methylation can turn off genes that control cell growth, and that lead to tumor 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 specialis...

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

.... The work suggests that doctors not rush in to turn off molecular events that scientists have widely considered to be detrimental in people with the disease. The findings could also renew efforts to develop a vaccine or other strategies against Alzheimer’s by engaging the body’s immune system. The ...

Blood test may help signal tumor's remission, return in throat cancer patients

...ent a new target for drug therapy. Drugs that help turn off NF-kappaB are currently being tested in clinical trials at NIH and elsewhere. The researchers note that a few of the patients experienced elevations in cytokine levels related to other illnesses or injuries, and not to throat cancer; therefore...

Math that powers spam filters used to understand how brain learns to move our muscles

...nks and make a prediction on how to move, which in turn would also be memorized. While short term memory was periodically purged, repeated errors were transferred to a long term memory bank. The computer learner was tasked with “looking” at a spot of light. Then all the lights were turned off. The spo...

Old memory traces in brain may trigger chronic pain

... you can think of chronic pain as the inability to turn off the memory of the pain,” Apkarian said. “What’s exciting is that we now may be relieving what has clinically been the most difficult to treat—the suffering or the emotional component of pain.” Scientists have always tried to understand pain f...

The approach also could make it possible to insert relatively large structures, such as sensors and hollow filaments called carbon nanotubes, into the interiors of cells...

Mutating the entire genome

There is a zero tolerance for the fungus that causes potato wart. As a result, this disease has been placed on the USDA’s "Select Agent List" of plant pathogens...

Researchers develop buckyballs to fight allergy

...s have, however, we are the first to show they can turn off the allergic response and basic immune reactions,” he said. According to Kepley, who is the principal author of the paper, the buckyballs are able to ‘interrupt’ the allergy/immune response by inhibiting a basic process in the cell that leads ...

St. Jude study shows genes play an unexpected role in their own activation

...hat the CREB ‘plumber’ requires different tools to turn on different genes; and that each gene determines which set of co-factor tools from CREB’s toolbox it will respond to.” In order to activate a gene, CREB must first get “tagged” by a molecule called phosphate. CREB then recruits a co-factor calle...

'Smart' mice teach scientists about learning process, brain disorders

...ch entirely eliminates the gene. "Being able to turn a gene off throughout a brain is a really advanced thing to do," Dr. Bibb said. "It’s been shown that it can be done, but we put the system together and actually applied it." Normally, Cdk5 works with another enzyme to break up a molecule called N...

Until now the mechanisms by which pregnant women defend themselves against malaria and how HIV impairs this defence have been unknown, but a paper published in PLoS Medicine (Public Library of Science) pin...

For many insects, winter survival is in the genes

...rchers found 11 previously undiscovered genes that turn on heat-shock proteins during diapause. Until this study, they had only known of two such proteins. Denlinger and his team also examined the expression of one of those previously discovered heat-shock proteins, Hsp70, in five additional insect spe...
