St. Jude finds molecule that could improve cancer vaccines and therapy for other diseases

... Investigators at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital have discovered a new signaling molecule that prevents immune responses from running amok and damaging the body. The finding could lead to the development of new treatments for cancer, using vaccines; for autoimmune diseases, such as Type 1...

Molecular probe 'paints' cancer cells in living animals, Stanford researchers find

...atment of cancer and other diseases. The probe's main ingredient is a molecule that labels active proteases - protein-destroying enzymes - that run amok in cancerous cells. The molecule is normally invisible to the naked eye but it carries a fluorescent tag that lights up when it binds to the protease....

CSHL researchers map changing epigenetic modifications that enable transposons to run amok

Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y. Much like cancer cells, plant cells grown for a long time outside of their normal milieu, in culture dishes, have highly unstable genomes. Changes in gene activity, or how genes are "expressed," help cells cope with challenging culture conditions but inadvertently also le...

New regulatory mechanism discovered for cell identify and behavior in forming organs

...inhibited by the modulating protein Sfrp5 (Secreted Frizzled Related Protein), a known antagonist of Wnt. Without this restriction, Wnt signaling runs amok and the frog's foregut, liver and pancreas form improperly from a cascade of disorganized cell growth. "We point out that Wnt has two key roles he...
