Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

...in animals or humans. Until then, no one knows yet when this experimental molecule will actually enter the consumer market, but any useful application is likely to take five to ten years, the researcher estimates. Administration of the molecule for drug delivery could be by mouth or by injection, he adds....

Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...generated neurons can communicate with other cells when transplanted into a living animal. The team will first test the neurons in chicken embryos. While the new results are promising and provide access to critical cells that may one day be used in therapy, it will likely be many years before they can be...

New push for public health, AIDS spending at African Union summit

Man and mouse share genome structures

...proteins that place methyl groups on histones can, when mutated, cause leukemia. Bernstein hopes to apply the new technology to characterize chromatin structure in leukemic cells and gain insight into the molecular basis of disease. "The human genome still has many surprises lurking within it," said Land...

Molecular biology fills gaps in knowledge of bat evolution
