...stasis, and other disease processes. Tumor-causing versions of signaling molecules may attach to paxillin and disturb the normal adhesion and growth factor signaling steps required for controlled proliferation and cell growth. For example, human papilloma virus, which can cause cervical cancer, makes a protei...

First confirmed common genetic risk factors for breast cancer

...sociated with breast cancer susceptibility. Normal versions of these genes help prevent cancer from occurring in the first place, by helping cells to repair DNA breaks and other abnormalities that can result from chance or exposure to an environmental toxin, such as excessive UV sunlight. However, BRCA-1, BRC...

Gene found for rare disorder may reveal new pathway in mental retardation

...ients with the SMCIA and SMC3 mutations had milder versions of the distinctive facial features found in classical CdLS, such as thin eyebrows that join together, long eyelashes, thin lips and excessive body hair. "In many of these patients, an experienced clinician might recognize their more subtle facial...

Individual differences in a clock gene predict decline of performance during sleep deprivation

Previous work had indicated that the different forms of the gene appear to influence characteristic morning and evenin...

Bacterial walls come tumbling down

...me function should help scientists design modified versions that are more suitable for use in people. Understanding the structure of this enzyme should also speed up screening and design of new antibiotics, which are in constant demand as microbes continually evolve new ways to evade the drugs that researc...

RNA enzyme structure offers a glimpse into the origins of life

...difficult, and Robertson tried dozens of different versions of the ribozyme under different conditions before he succeeded. Using x-ray crystallography--which involves shining a beam of x-rays through the crystals and analyzing the resulting diffraction patterns--Robertson and Scott were then able to determin...

Different versions of the myosin family proteins are critical to essentially every cell including muscle cells and those that turnover and divide rapidly, such as skin and intestinal cells, and eggs or oocytes. The rapidly moving protein is easily degraded an...

Killing the messenger RNA -- But which one?

... "What we found was that, in certain cases, edited versions of these microRNAs are being produced that differ from the unedited versions by only a single nucleotide change," says Kazuko Nishikura, Ph.D., a professor in the Gene Expressio...

Chromosomal microarray analysis proves accurate

...romosomal testing did not. This study involved two versions of the test, and the newer version was more successful in identifying chromosomal abnormalities. The targeted microarray analysis used here is essentially a gene chip method of assessing the makeup of chromosomes in a particular part of the human ...

Virginia Tech's System X supercomputer provides super tool for simulation of cell division

"A deterministic global search algorithm systematically explores the parameter space, finding go...

Early-stage immune system control of HIV may depend on inherited factors

Tarantula venom and chili peppers target same pain sensor

...apsaicin receptor. They also showed that synthetic versions of the venom peptides activated the receptor. In studies with mice, they found that normal animals flinched when their paws were exposed to the peptides, which they call vanillotoxins. Mice genetically engineered to lack capsaicin receptors did not r...

Study uncovers mutation responsible for Noonan Syndrome

"These results are the first exampl...

When the label says 'low fat,' calories can pile up, study says

Further, a companion study finds, when food labels show serving sizes on such packaged low-fat snacks as granola or chocolates, normal-weight people tend not t...

Does missing gene point to nocturnal existence for early mammals?

The findings ?published in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS Biology ?reveal how our experience of the light environment may be impoverished compared to other vertebrates an...

Stanford discovery may help predict when toxoplasma can be deadly

"We think that the different versions of Toxoplasma strains evolved for optimal interaction with different hosts," said Boothroyd, noting that the wrong pairing of parasite and host can have dire consequences. "If a given strain gets into the 'wrong' host, the result is a system out ...
