A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...It took advantage of “crack zones” comparable with wound areas. The set of results obtained from subsequent work, seeking to identify the genes involved in producing the unknown signal molecule that plays the role of Nod factor, prompted the team’s hypothesis that a molecule similar to a plant hormone (4),...

Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin

...food or open wounds, leading to infant botulism or wound botulism, both of which are serious human infections. The host can be quickly overpowered and, in some cases, killed by the toxin, and C. botulinum has a new food source. "Although in the same group as Clostridium difficile — the Cdiff superbug —...

Targeting sugar on blood vessels may inhibit cancer growth

...helial growth, such as the reproductive system and wound healing, remained robust." Studying mouse models with a genetic alteration in an important sugar-modifying enzyme (Ndst1), the researchers saw a marked decrease in the growth of experimental carcinomas. The Ndst1 enzyme is responsible for modifyi...

Natural polyester makes new sutures stronger, safer

...naturally, so they can be safely absorbed once the wound is healed. They are also 30 percent stronger than sutures now used and very flexible, making them easier for surgeons to work with. The sutures were developed by Tepha, Inc., a Cambridge company that hopes to use the same material to produce an ar...

Cancer cells forming blood vessels send their copper to the edge

...iogenesis ?is important in growth, development and wound healing. But it also enables the spread of tumors throughout the body, so researchers have been scrambling for ways to stop angiogenesis in the fight against cancer. One element critical to blood vessel growth is copper, a vital nutrient that play...

MIT bioengineer advances survival, promise of adult stem cells

...sly difficult to develop as a clinical product for wound healing. To control this, the researchers decided to tether EGF to a scaffold, preventing the stem cells from eating it up and allowing continuous EGF exposure on the cell surface. "Putting them on a scaffold is appealing because then you can c...

How fish mend a broken heart

...ial cells then alters their identity, invading the wound and providing essential new blood vessels to the growing muscle. They further found that the two-part regeneration process is coordinated by so-called "fibroblast growth factor" (Fgf) signals. Fgf signals are known for their ability to encourage in...

"The research, conducted by an international collaboration of scientists, will help scientists and farmers improve th...

Hopkins researchers discover how brain protein might control memory

...e two proteins, cells were unable to "swallow" and wound up with more receptors than normal on their surfaces. Adding more Arc to cells caused the opposite to happen; the cells hyperactively swallowed up too many receptors, leaving few at the surface. Unfortunately, it's possible to over-excite a cell ...

...s. Sometimes, such as during human development or wound repair, epithelial cells need to travel to other areas, and to do this, they undergo a process known as "epithelial-mesenchymal transition" (EMT). The cell reduces its production of E-cadherin proteins and increases expression of mesenchymal cadherin...
