AAI honors Chen Dong for breakthrough T lymphocyte research

...cial to the adaptive immune system, which conjures a specific response that builds long-lasting immunity to specific infections. When this system goes haywire and attacks self-tissue, autoimmune diseases result. IL-17 was a suspect in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, but its origins were unknown and ...

Researchers Report Progress in Fight Against Fat

.... According to the researchers, a study of mice suggests that people who have the variation are generally skinner than others, but their bodies can go haywire -- and pack on more pounds than they should if they eat a high-fat diet. The researchers suggested that genetic tests might help determine if peop...

Colon Cancer Oncogene Discovered

...ar switch, causing the recipient protein to turn on or off. It turns out that kinases tend to play key roles in the biochemical pathways that often go haywire in cancer, so they are popular targets for drug developers. "There's a reasonable likelihood, though it hasn't happened yet, that one could develo...

Customized virus kills brain tumor stem cells that drive lethal cancer

... in a wave through the tumors until there are no cancer cells left, then it dies. Since 2004 scientists have found that brain tumors are driven by haywire stem cells that replicate themselves, differentiate into other types of cells, and bear protein markers like normal stem cells. "Research has shown...

Lost molecule holds the key to lung cancer

...lace in the British Journal Of cancer. The proteins help mange the growth of cells, the blood vessel formation and cell death, which can all get haywire when a person is afflicted with cancer. Samples of lung tumor tissue from nearly 46 lung cancer patients and similar numbers of lung tissue from healt...

Cancer Causing Proteins Trigger Abnormal Biochemical Reactions In Cells

...ors, which have been implicated in a wide variety of cancers. They found that two of these proteins, EGFR and ErbB2, become 'promiscuous' triggering a haywire biochemical reaction. 'These two promiscuous ErbB proteins are known to be overactive in many human cancers, suggesting that their ability to turn on ...

Lung Cancer Deaths Declining In Men But Not Women In European Countries

...tissue is made up of cells that are programmed by nature to create lungs of a certain shape and function. Sometimes the instructions to a cell go haywire and that cell and its offspring reproduce wildly, without regard for the shape and function of a lung. That wild reproduction can form tumors that clo...

New link in liver cancer

...ch 30th in the Journal of Experimental Medicine . Liver cells rely on signals triggered by growth hormone to survive and multiplyfunctions that go haywire in cancer. Normally, growth hormone works by activating a signaling network inside liver cells that includes a protein called STAT5. When the research...

Researchers solve piece of large-scale gene silencing mystery

...of ribosomal RNA genes in a hybrid plant or animal. Since the machinery involved in nucleolar dominance is some of the same machinery that can go haywire in diseases such as cancer, Pikaard and his collaborators' research may have important implications for applied medical research. Nucleolar domin...

Researchers identify promising gene target for neuroblastoma therapy

...o proliferate even without the molecules that normally activate the receptor in a highly controlled way, the researchers found. To see whether such haywire growth can be stopped, investigators mixed a powerful ALK-blocking molecule into batches of test cells whose ALK receptors harbor each of the newly di...

Cells lining milk ducts hold key to spread of common form of breast cancer

...es as well as genes that help myoepithelial cells stick to "basement" cells on the ducts outer layer. The effect is a cacaphony of erratic signals and haywire activity that prevents myoepithelial cells from fully maturing and forming an effective barrier to DCIS. "We found a constant, complex interplay of...

New study may show how to forestall a fatal, virus-caused immune-system meltdown

...end connections we would have missed otherwise.? Connecting those strands is critical to diagnosing and restoring balance to an immune system gone haywire in a disease like Lassa fever. “Early on, you can’t really differentiate these nasty hemorrhagic fever viruses from their symptoms ?they just resemble...

MIT: Pulsing light silences overactive neurons

...ists at the MIT Media Lab have invented a way to reversibly silence brain cells using pulses of yellow light, offering the prospect of controlling the haywire neuron activity that occurs in diseases such as epilepsy and Parkinson's disease. Such diseases often must be treated by removing neurons that fire ...

Stem cells' electric abilities might help their safe clinical use

... paper appears Aug. 5 online in the journal Stem Cells. "A major concern for human ESC-based therapies is the potential for engineered grafts to go haywire after transplantation and form tumors, for instance, due to contamination by only a few undifferentiated human ESCs," says Ronald A. Li, Ph.D., an ass...

Huntington's cure in flies lays groundwork for broader treatment approaches

...ple, by a single faulty gene. Yin has long worked in the area of "triplet expansion" diseases such as Huntington's and Fragile X, in which genes go haywire due to a coding defect. His collaborators on the recent fruit fly work include, among others, lead author Kanae Iijima-Ando of the Cold Spring Harbor ...

New Lab Research May Help Those Deafened By Immune System Attack

... Our immune system protects us from disease, destroying invading microbes with a swarm of attacking cells. But it can also go haywire for no apparent reason, ganging up on normal tissues in our body and wreaking havoc. In thousands of people each year, the immune system attacks the...
