Genetic differences might help distinguish thyroid cancers

...the other hand, showed no expression by CLDN10 and low activity by IGFBP6 and/or by CAV1 and CAV2. If verified in a larger number of tumors, these genes, in combination with other known genetic changes in thyroid cancer cells, form the basis for a valuable diagnostic tool, says Eng, a recipient of ...

Marijuana use could cause tubal pregnancies

... of the mouse embryo in the wall of the uterus. At low concentrations, it synchronizes embryo development with uterine receptivity so that successful implantation occurs. At higher levels, however, implantation is blocked. Elevated levels of anandamide also have been shown to cause spontaneous pregnancy ...

Scientists explore genome of methane-breathing microbe

... capsulatus uses two separate systems at high and low copper concentrations for oxidizing methane. Scientists say the organism's potential significance for biotechnology include the use of bacteriophage (viruses that infect bacteria) that have made a home in the genome. Such phages could be exploited t...

Genes expose secrets of sex on the side

However, the genetic patterns the UA researchers found contradicts those ideas. If a beneficial mutation had swept throug...

Genetic modification of linseed produces healthier omega 3 and 6 fatty acids

...ironment. As demand rises for edible oils that are low in saturated fats and high in poly-unsaturated fats, in particular very long chain omega 3- and omega 6-poly-unsaturated fats, the production of these oils in plants may reduce environmentally and economically unsustainable pressures on both wild and...

They also had higher expression of genes involved in ubiquitination and histone modification, which suggests an involvement of these processes in aggressi...

A probable cause for high blood pressure identified - shows links with diabetes

...leasers of insulin ever discovered. However, while low concentrations of the ribotide stimulate insulin release and are therefore therapeutic, much larger concentrations block release, a condition that produces diabetes. Thus it is important that the ribotide levels in the pancreas be well controlled. ...

Researchers identify distinctive signature for metastatic prostate cancer

...In contrast, cells that were not metastatic showed low levels of activity. In particular, said Beachy, their experiments showed that pathway activation in metastatic cancers depended on the expression of Smoothened suggesting that gene may be "a focal point of regulation in tissue regeneration and tum...

Proteins show promise for mosquito control

Lan and her team have patented the gene and the methods for screening the compounds. It will take a year to screen another 20,000 chemicals. After that, they will be looking for...

New dye directly reveals activated proteins in living cells

"For the first time we saw native Cdc42 activity in living cells," Hahn said. "But perhaps the most important aspect of the paper is that we demonstrated ...

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

...cal Centre, Chicago will present evidence that the low incidence of leukaemia in Asia is due in part to the protective effect of turmeric, a spice used widely in Asian cooking. "Some of the known risk factors that contribute to the high incidence of childhood leukaemia are the interaction of many lifesty...
