Strongest proof yet found for prion hypothesis

...uted over and over again and the process repeated, until the only remaining prions were those that had been generated in the test tubes. These were then injected into the brains of healthy hamsters, which began showing TSE symptoms within four months and, on average, died less than six months after inocula...

...zen eggs can then be safely stored in the Cryoleaf until it is ready for use, at which point it is carefully thawed, then fertilized. To date, 15 patients at the McGill Reproductive Centre have had embryo transfer produced from vitrified eggs, resulting in 7 pregnancies including this livebirth. "The resu...

Researchers report new pro-inflammatory role for anti-inflammatory enzyme

...tial trigger for the induction of iNOS. "eNOS has until recently been thought to act principally in an anti-inflammatory manner," notes Dr. Hobbs. "The results of our study show clearly that eNOS can also act in a pro-inflammatory manner and accelerate host-defense in response to pathogenic stimuli." Thi...

In response, the cell halts growth and, when chemotherapy is used in combination with the immunotherapy, it dies. Accor...

Study: 'homemade' gene expression technology unreliable

... and then write that on a glass slide repetitively until one can build up hundreds of thousands of different spots on this glass array," Spencer said. But as commercial platforms improved over time, many laboratory or "home-built" platforms have not, he said. "The fruits of the research done on some of th...

Biomarkers isolated from saliva successfully predict oral and breast cancer

In this study, the UCLA team found they could isolate messenger RNA from saliva and blood...

Novel gene-silencing nanoparticles shown to inhibit Ewing's sarcoma

The transferrin binds tightly to a receptor on the cell's surface, where it is drawn inside and surrounded by a small vesicle. The vessels are acidified, causing the nanoparticle...

Double triumph in stem cell quest

... other teams glue cells to a surface and spin them until the denser nucleus is forced out. Then the team take cells from adults and fuse them with the enucleated ESCs. The idea is that the cytoplasm of an enucleated ESC will reprogram the donor nuclei, turning the fused cell into an ESC too. The result, V...

Scientists discover that three overlapping signals in embryo help get the backbone right

...hat embryonic cells don't know what they'll become until they get the proper signal. This concept is at the root of today's excitement over embryonic stem cells, which are basically naïve cells that, theoretically, can be stimulated to become any tissue of the body. In fact, the proteins normally used by ...

Migratory songbirds have a specialized night-vision brain area

The researchers then quickly preserved the birds' brains, and in Jarvis's laboratory analyzed the brain structures for the active expression of two genes called ZENK and c-fos ...
