Jefferson Scientists Discover Mechanism Of Viral Link To Disease Commonly Associated With Asbestos

...r virus from monkeys, targets key proteins that normally prevent tumors from forming, rendering them ineffective. These proteins, made by so-called tumor-suppressor genes, are in the retinoblastoma family ( pRb , pRb2/p130 , and p107 ). A viral protein called SV40 T-ag (T-antigen) binds to an...

Second Look Acquits Gene Of Role In Breast Cancer

...ns."But the string ofRNA coding for the protein is normally interrupted at several points by codingthat is not part ofthe protein. Before the cell can use it, it has to clip out these pieces. Andit's in this splicing'process that something's going wrong in the cancerous cells." In many cases, the canc...

Resistance To Leptin Contributes To Obesity

...e,found that three strains of obese mice, all with normally high levels ofleptin, are overweight because they have varying degrees of insensitivityto the protein. The team examined the effect of leptin given during a30-day period as infusions either into the fat tissue under the skin ordirectly into the flui...

Progress In Prion Research: Three-Dimensional Structure Of Prion Protein Fully Uncovered

They cause disease only when they are folded in a particularway-luckily a very rare occurrence so far. The disease-inducing prions appear tocontain clumps of several prion protein molecules, which damage th...
