Researchers Probe New Depths In Plant Communications
...thways to infect an entire plant,"Lucas says. "The parallels
between viral movement proteinsand CmPP16 provide the first strong evidence that viruses mayhave acquired that ability by stealing it from plant genes." The gene that makes the CmPP16 protein in pumpkins is alsofound in a wide range of other crop pla...
Clues To Transplant Tolerance Linked To Infectious Disease Immunity Cell Traffic Key, Say Authors In New England Journal of Medicine
...lex cell-mediatedresponses, provides the strongest parallels
to transplant immunology. Noncytopathic micro-organisms, including those that cause tuberculosis,hepatitis, herpes and warts, are less virulent than the cytopathic variety, likethe bacteria for pneumonia, and they often can be accommodated b...

Gene Therapy Showing Promise In Fighting Melanoma
...tumor,"Hogge said. MacEwen said this study closely parallels
work in human gene therapy to treatcancer, and provides additional information that benefits those projects. "Wetry to target a lot of the research we do so it will benefit the development anddesign of human clinical trials," he said. Dogs provide a ...
Clockwork Clues Determined
...lute amounts, set the new internal time. Given the parallels
between the bread mold and mammalian systems, the findings have implications for humans, the researchers note. They suggest that in the human brain, a low point for key timekeeper proteins could be just before dawn, corresponding to the temperature ...
