St. Jude study solves mystery of mammalian ears

...motility in mammalian outer hair cells is simply a way to change the height of the cilia in the fluid to ...s concluded that somatic motility was not simply a way to make cilia do their job better; rather, there is no connection between the hair cell contractions...

Carnegie Mellon scientists find key HIV protein makes cell membranes bend more easily

...ions. This same phenomenon could provide a general way that viruses use to infect cells, so it will be exciting to look at other viral systems with our experimental method,” she said. Many different viruses could enter cells by efficiently lowering the energy required to penetrate a cell’s outer membran...

One species, many genomes

Faster growth, darker leaves, a different way of branching - wild varieties of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana are often substantially different from the laboratory strain of this small mustard plant, a favorite of many plant biologists. Which detailed differences distinguish the genomes of strai...

Common cancer gene sends death order to tiny killer

Scientists at Johns Hopkins have discovered one way the p53 gene does what it's known for—stopping the colon cancer cells. Their report will be published in the June 8 issue of Molecular Cell. The research team identified a tiny bit of genetic code, a microRNA called miR-34a that participates in p53...

Agent slows aging in mice

...is advised to bulk up on creosote bush leaves as a way to defy old age. If NDGA pushes the aging envelope in the final results of this study, other labs will likely try to repeat the results in animals. Much more research is needed before any possible human anti-aging drug could emerge, Miller says. ...

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

...as a first line of treatment. However, there is no way to predict which patients will respond well to this treatment or whether a tumor will return later. Clinical exams, X-rays, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are currently used to monitor a patient’s progress, but observation by these methods has ...

... of the barrel or changes its conformation to make way for the large molecules. Previous studies had been inconclusive, however. Molecular biologists have difficulty studying systems that involve complex interactions between proteins, particularly when one domain moves into and out of a structure like...

How sneaky HIV escapes cells

...that interfere with exosome formation might be one way to inhibit HIV infections. “Viruses like HIV use pathways we barely recognize, much less understand,” Gould says. “Our paper highlights the importance of studying their basic biochemistry and cell biology, which can yield a better understanding of...

Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

How to lose weight and not go hungry: HU researcher develops drug that mimics feeling of 'fullness'

...blood stream. Once in the blood, it could make its way to the MC4R receptor and “close the circuit” to send out the “full” signal. The result is that a person seriously wishing to overcome obesity could take this compound orally in order to curb his appetite, thus leading to natural weight loss. In e...

Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance

...ence − which combines nucleotide base pairs in a way that is found in no other life form − into one that could be "read" by yeast. The yeast are then able to produce the PfMDR1 protein, in its proper sequence, from this synthetic gene. They previously used this same technique to create and express a ...

Given some exciting recent developments on testing possible cures for inherited blindness, its becoming very important for everybody to know exactly which mutation they've got, because the treatments being tested are specifi...

Researchers shed light on shrinking of chromosomes

Like this, no long chromosome arms extend over the plane of division, because that could expose the DNA to serious mechanical damage.” The extreme condensation of ...

U-M researchers discover gene switched off in cancer can be turned on

...et. We can detect it, but we need to find a better way to turn it back on. No drugs are designed to deal with a gene that’s turned off. But it’s a straightforward extension of current therapies that target genes that are turned on,” says lead study author David Reisman, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor o...
