Aug. 31, 2015 — In animals, numerous behaviors are governed by the olfactory perception of their surrounding world. Whether originating in the nose of a mammal or the antennas of an insect, perception results from ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — Scientists have developed a novel approach to control the activity of enzymes through the use of synthetic, antibody-like proteins known as monobodies. The findings have widespread implications for a ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — A strong physical gene interaction network has been discovered that is responsible for holding genes in a silencing grip during early development. In the same way that people can interact with others ... read more

Gene Associated With Sudden Cardiac Death Identified by ICD Monitoring

Aug. 31, 2015 — A gene associated with sudden cardiac death in the general population has been identified using implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) monitoring in new research. The research included patients ... read more

Research Team Creates Model to Predict Cellular Evolution

Aug. 31, 2015 — Scientists have not been able to understand and predict how cells evolve in our bodies, and this process is important because evolving cell populations are at the core of drug-resistant infections ... read more

Gene Regulating Severity of Tissue Damage Caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis Identified

Aug. 31, 2015 — Scientists have identified a new protein (C5orf30) which regulates the severity of tissue damage caused by rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation, pain, stiffness and ... read more

Recruitment of Leukocytes Is a Hallmark of Stent Thrombosis

Aug. 30, 2015 — Recruitment of leukocytes is a hallmark of stent thrombosis, according to new results. The findings suggest that immune cell mediated thrombotic processes may be a realistic target for novel ... read more

Aug. 31, 2015 — From 1952, DNA was sequenced, modified and extensively studied, but no technique was able to produce clear direct images of DNA. Now, researchers have developed a new technique to produce a direct ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — Researchers have for the first time created and used a nanoscale vehicle made of DNA to deliver a CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing tool into cells in both cell culture and an animal ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — A growing, dividing cell uses most of its energy store to make its "protein factories," the ribosomes. An important player in their "assembly" is the exosome, a molecular ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — Researchers have unraveled a role for tumor suppressor genes in restricting the growth of neighboring cell populations. The study might have implications for understanding the early events of ... read more

Aug. 27, 2015 — Scientists have identified how mutations in the IKZF1 gene contribute to a high-risk leukemia subtype and drugs that may enhance the effectiveness of targeted ... read more

Scientists Identify Possible Key in Virus, Cancer Research

Aug. 27, 2015 — Scientists have uncovered a viral protein in the cell that inhibits the major DNA sensor and thus the body's response to viral infection, suggesting that this cellular pathway could be ... read more

HIV Particles Do Not Cause AIDS, Our Own Immune Cells Do

Aug. 27, 2015 — Scientists have discovered that HIV does not cause AIDS by the virus's direct effect on the host's immune cells, but rather through the cells' lethal influence on one another. In a new ... read more

Aug. 27, 2015 — RNA can be translated into protein or transformed into gene-regulating molecules. A newly discovered 'reader' protein recognizes a chemical instruction tag affixed to RNA, an important step ... read more

Researchers Thwart Cancer Cells by Triggering 'Virus Alert'

Aug. 27, 2015 — Working with human cancer cell lines and mice, researchers have found a way to trigger a type of immune system 'virus alert' that may one day boost cancer patients' response to ... read more

Circadian Genes Go to Sleep Every Day at the Periphery of the Nucleus

Aug. 27, 2015 — Mobility between different physical environments in the cell nucleus regulates the daily oscillations in the activity of genes that are controlled by the internal biological clock, according to a new ... read more
