It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

...ation, but an "epigenetic" problem that improperly turns on the copy of the IGF2 gene that should remain off. Unlike most genes, the copy of IGF2 that should be silent depends only on which parent it came from, a situation called genomic imprinting. For IGF2, the copy inherited from the mother is always s...

Columbia research lifts major hurdle to gene therapy for cancer

...th of the molecules flip a switch (called PEG)that turns on the production of a cancer-inhibiting protein uniquely intumor cells.The researchers say the PEG switch can be exploited to produce genetherapies that will only kill cancer cells even if the therapy entersnormal cells.As an example, the researcher...

Plants, animals share molecular growth mechanisms

...at a WAVE protein they've dubbed DISTORTED3 (DIS3) turns on APR 2/3, which in turn triggers formation of new, growing actin filaments. Because some genes have survived through time as multicellular life evolved, they have been conserved in both plants and animals, Szymanski said. So, some of the plant pro...

Weill Cornell Research Reveals Secrets Of Trafficking Within Cells

...eally paid off in terms of results, he added. "It turns out that clathrin regulates endocytosis in a manner we never suspected before. It's not a linear relationship, where simply doubling the amount of clathrin doubles the speed at which vesicles are shuttled back and forth," Dr. Ryan explained. "Instead...

Probing The Promise And Perils Of Nanoparticles

... genes—to see if they behaved like dendrimers. "It turns out that they cause the same permeability and, in general, they cause membrane destruction as well," said Banaszak Holl. Neutral polymers, however, did not damage membranes. Both Leroueil's work and the earlier research used model membranes to probe...

Introduced foxes transformed vegetation on Aleutian Islands from lush grasslands to tundra

...ush grasslands to scrubby, low-growing tundra. It turns out that the nutrient-poor volcanic soils of the Aleutian archipelago can only support dense grasslands if they receive regular doses of fertilizer in the form of bird droppings. On islands without foxes, seabirds transfer nutrients from the ocean to...

Whatever the reason, it's very important that she exercise this preference in order to keep the species distinct." Mendelson spent three and one-half years studying the Laupala cr...

Polymers with copper show promise for implanted sensors

...doing this, the researchers found, is copper. "It turns out that copper ions can act as catalysts to take nitrosothiols and generate nitric oxide from them," said Meyerhoff. So the U-M team has been creating polymers that include a copper ion-containing complex. They've demonstrated that complexed copper ...

Transgenic plants remove more selenium from polluted soil than wild plants, new tests show

...ral Resources and co-lead author of the study. "It turns out that our field test results were better than those from the greenhouse, and that was a surprise." In California, as much as 100,000 cubic meters of sediment contaminated with selenium, salt and boron remain in the San Luis Drain, a concrete-line...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

.... This leads to production of a new protein, which turns on genes in the UPR signaling pathway and directs cells to secrete large amounts of protein. The University of Michigan has filed a U.S. patent application covering the IRE1-mediated processing of XBP1 mRNA. Other scientists have shown that XBP1 hel...

Love's all in the brain: fMRI study shows strong, lateralized reward, not sex, drive

...love and motivation networks in the brain. "As it turns out, romantic love is probably best characterized as a motivation or goal-oriented state that leads to various specific emotions, such as euphoria or anxiety," Aron noted. "With this view, it becomes clearer why the lover expresses such an imperative...
