Research into rare disease leads to discovery of six new breast cancer-susceptibility genes

...tched on. When a cell's DNA is damaged whether by excessive sunlight, chemicals such as those found in cigarette smoke, radiation, or other means five of the Fanconi genes team up to produce a protein "complex" that stimulates a sixth gene. That gene, dubbed D2, orders production of a protein that moves near...

New cholesterol disorder discovered As predicted from gene's role

...ol to bile acids is blocked. The liver responds to excessive cholesterol by reducing the amount of receptors available to take up low density lipoprotein, or LDL, -- the "bad" cholesterol from the blood. A mutation in the gene, they reasoned, would result in an accumulation of LDL. The team also predicted hig...

Nerve cells' death different from other cells'

.... Made in nerve cells' mitochondria in response to excessive DNA damage and PARP activation, AIF is sent into the nucleus, immediately causing the cells' genetic material to collapse. "AIF entering the nucleus seems to be the point of no return -- once it gets in, the cell is going to die no matter what you ...

Surprise, surprise, surprise: Hopkins scientists unexpectedly create epilepsy in rats

...mate into GABA-producing neurons may help calm the excessive electrical firing of brain cells, says Rothstein. In rats, the glutamate transporter EAAC1 is the main mover, getting the molecule into and out of brain cells and maintaining the appropriate levels of the excitatory chemical. By giving the rats pie...

Without blue crabs, southern salt marshes wash away, study finds
