...diac and peripheral vascular disease, diabetes and recalcitrant wounds. As published in Genes & Development, Dr. Jeffrey Arbeit and colleagues have discovered that the continuous expression of a single gene, HIF-1a, can induce the formation of new blood vessels in mice. The HIF-1a protein comprises one subunit of...

UCR scientists discover a novel adaptive antiviral defense mechanism in animals

... the new findings may result in new treatments for recalcitrant human and animal viral diseases being developed based on the RNA silencing adaptive defense, which is distinct to the known adaptive immunity that targets protein antigens of viruses. "For example, blocking the action of viral silencing suppressors s...

Stanford researchers isolate protein needed for stem cell maintenance

...s have finally laid hands on the first member of a recalcitrant group of proteins called the Wnts two decades after their discovery. Important regulators of animal development, these proteins were suspected to have a role in keeping stem cells in their youthful, undifferentiated state - a suspicion that has prove...
