Researchers Shed Pharmacological Light on Formerly 'Dark' Cellular Receptors

Nov. 9, 2015 — Scientists have created a general tool to probe the activity of orphan receptors, illuminating their roles in behavior and making them accessible for drug discovery. The creation of the research tool ... read more

Oct. 23, 2015 — Inhibiting a family of enzymes inside hair follicles that are suspended in a resting state restores hair growth, a new study has found. In experiments with mouse and human hair follicles, researchers ... read more

Blocking Differentiation Is Enough to Give Cells 'Stemness'

Oct. 22, 2015 — Researchers have found that in immune cells, simply blocking a transcription factor that leads to differentiation is sufficient to keep cells in a multipotent stem cell-like state where they can ... read more

Oct. 22, 2015 — A banana a day may not keep the doctor away, but a substance originally found in bananas and carefully edited by scientists could someday fight off a wide range of viruses, new research suggests. And ... read more

Oct. 15, 2015 — Invasive aspergillosis is a serious disease of immune-compromised individuals and the most common invasive mold infection in humans. Although more than 250 different Aspergillus species are found in ... read more

Oct. 21, 2015 — New research provides first direct evidence that an algae-infecting virus can invade and potentially replicate within some mammalian cells. It follows up a 2014 study that found signs of a ... read more

Oct. 19, 2015 — When a Lake Malawi cichlid loses a tooth, a new one drops neatly into place as a replacement. Why can't humans similarly regrow teeth lost to injury or ... read more

Orange Lichens Are Potential Source for Anticancer Drugs

Oct. 19, 2015 — An orange pigment found in lichens and rhubarb called parietin may have potential as an anti-cancer drug because it interferes with the metabolic enzyme 6PGD, scientists have ... read more

Animal Scientists Identify Mutations That Led to Pigs That Lack Immune Systems

Oct. 15, 2015 — Animal science researchers have identified a pair of genetic mutations that cause immune deficiencies in pigs that make them uniquely good models for testing potential medical therapies for people. ... read more

Oct. 14, 2015 — The most severe strep infections are often the work of one strain known as M1T1, named for the type of tentacle-like M protein projecting from the bacterium's surface. Researchers have uncovered ... read more

Mouse Model of Duchenne Muscular Dystropy Identifies Potential New Approaches to Therapy

Oct. 13, 2015 — Genetic ablation of P2RX7 can improve muscle function and partially correct cognitive impairment and bone loss in a mouse model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, according to a new study. The research ... read more

Oct. 12, 2015 — Being able to understand speech is essential to our evolution as humans. Hearing lets us perceive the same word even when spoken at different speeds or pitches, and also gives us extra sensitivity to ... read more

Oct. 8, 2015 — With their tiny forelimbs and long hindlimbs and feet, jerboas are oddly proportioned creatures that look something like a pint-size cross between a kangaroo and the common mouse. How these 33 ... read more

Oct. 8, 2015 — Working with gut stem cells from humans and mice, scientists have successfully grown healthy intestine atop a 3-D scaffold made of a substance used in surgical ... read more

Spay, Neuter, or Shot? How an Injection Could Be the Future of Animal Control

Oct. 5, 2015 — A single shot into the muscle is enough to stop egg and sperm production in mice, report scientists. The injection delivers packaged DNA into muscle cells, causing them to produce neutralizing ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — The most common lab animals, rats and mice, can't tell scientists much about speech disorders. However, a new study shows how songbirds, specifically zebra finches, may be able to aid research ... read more

Oct. 1, 2015 — A new study has identified a number of genes that are repressed at various time points after memory formation, providing important clues as to how long-term memories are ... read more

Oct. 1, 2015 — The shared patterns of gene expression in the limbs and phallus are generated in part by a common set of noncoding DNA, also called 'elements' or 'enhancers,' which act to control ... read more

Oct. 1, 2015 — Scientists have shown, for the first time, what happens when a frog's tongue makes contact with a surface. They discovered similarities to conventional adhesive tape. Like sticky tape, the ... read more

Proof-of-Concept for Low-Cost Drug Made in Lettuce

Oct. 1, 2015 — Scientists have used a plant-based system to make shelf-stable drugs. The researchers confirmed the viability of their method for FDA approval and human use, producing an effective drug that promotes ... read more
