Common cancer gene sends death order to tiny killer

... 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's uncanny ability to k...

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

... can boost IL-1beta in select areas and then watch what happens as the process unfolds. The team expected to see the telltale clumps of material known as amyloid plaques, made up of the peptide amyloid beta, worsen. Instead, to the team’s surprise, the brains of the mice with IL-1beta stuck in overdriv...

A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...ot hairs. The finding raises the question as to what signalling pathway Bradyrhizodium might use to gain entry to the plant and set off nodulation. The first observation was that the bacteria did not penetrate the roots of its host-plant by the hairs. It took advantage of “crack zones” comparable w...

This identification was published in “The New England Journal of Medicine” in 1997. Koehler’s research group found that all pet cats of AIDS patients infected...

Study shows big power of small RNAs, not just proteins, in halting cancer

...but we’ve revealed something very surprising about what makes this pathway so powerful,” said Hannon. CSHL research published by Nature earlier this year, concluded that even in the latest stages of cancer, reactivation of a previously damaged p53 pathway caused cancer tumors to stop growing and even elim...

Studies to find better ways to preserve human eggs, ovarian tissue under way

... crystals break up your inside organelles. That is what hurts eggs, which are very delicate,” he says. “When you trigger ovulation with a hormone or naturally, you get the last separation of the chromosomes, from 46 to 23,” says Dr. Emmi. That separation enables a future baby to get half his chromosom...
