Columbia research lifts major hurdle to gene therapy for cancer

...S), the researchers demonstrated thatthe technique works by incorporating it into a specially designedvirus. The virus eradicated prostate cancer cells in the lab and inanimals while leaving normal cells unscathed.

Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

... Taken together, these results suggestedthat Nedd4 works as an antagonist of Notch signaling at an early stage,prior to the proteolytic cleavage of the receptor’s intracellulardomain. Further investigation revealed the specific domain by whichNedd4 interacts with Notch and pinpointed the site of origin for...

Finding Cures For Tropical Diseases: Is Open Source An Answer?

Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

... their bones for the calcium it needs. The process works both ways, fortunately, as another set of cells, called osteoblasts, rebuilds the bone when the body has excess calcium. In an average year, a healthy person may remove and rebuild 10 percent of his or her bone structure. This process of teardown an...

Study: Soap And Water Work Best In Ridding Hands Of Disease Viruses

In previous work, his group found that several species of stickleback lacking hind fins all shared an alteration in how a gene was turned on and off. The striking similarity is that in both studies evolution turned to the...
