Evidence builds for potential new cancer drug target

...leukemia cells depend on for proliferation, is the formation of white blood cells. "This study is another step in the process of validating the c-myb gene as a potential target for new cancer drugs," said Prem Reddy, Ph.D., professor and director of the Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biolog...

Binocular rivalry: Fulfilling visual expectations

...is normal to think of vision as beginning with the formation of an image on the back of the eye, which in turn stimulates a cascade of nerve impulses that "feed forward" to send signals deep into the brain. It is in the brain's visual cortex that these signals are interpreted. Signals in the visual cortex also...

Martin Saunders to receive the James Flack Norris Award

...e intermediates in organic reactions including the formation of many natural substances such as the steroids. The approach Saunders took was to create stable solutions of these normally highly reactive species, so that they could be studied by NMR. This allowed him to discover the detailed mechanisms and rates...

Research suggests new avenue for stopping, preventing colon cancer

...me produces another prostaglandin that blocks clot formation and dilates blood vessels. Long-term, high-dose use of the COX-2 inhibitor Vioxx has been linked to high blood pressure and an increased risk of serious heart problems in some patients.

Can an old gene learn new tricks?

...nner ear. Therefore, a Drosophila gene can direct formation of an organ system that does not even exist in the Drosophila body. "These results demonstrate that the evolution of higher vertebrate characteristics can result from the recycling or redeployment of 'old' genes in new parts of the embryo, rather t...

There and back again

... cells to convert into epithelial cells during the formation of somites early in embryogenesis. Somites are transitory structures that appear in a head-down direction in strictly timed and ordered pairs as the chicken develops, dividing the embryo into body patterning segments, and later giving rise to the ver...

Researchers report new gene test for isolated cleft lip and palate

...ific protein that plays a vital role in the normal formation of the lips, palate, skin and genitalia during the early stages of development. The researchers found that mutations of the IRF6 gene are associated with an increased chance that a child would be born with a cleft lip or palate. Two years ago, Murray...

New research suggests early diet may play key role in protecting against childhood leukaemia

...n induced chromosome damage and it can prevent the formation of harmful heterocyclic amines and nitroso-compounds which can result from eating certain processed foods. He has also shown that curcumin irreversibly inhibits the multiplication of leukaemia cells in cell culture. Nagabhusan says these results are...

Israeli scientists reveal the plan of a key cellular machine

A new protein is discovered to play a key role in cancer progression

...role in cancer development. It is required for the formation of a signaling complex that is an essential factor in activating TGF-b signaling necessary to suppress the growth of cancer cells. When cPML is lost, TGF-b signaling is disrupted. Primary cells from Pml-null mice are resistant to TGF-b dependent grow...
