Coordinating power of circadian rhythms keeps estrus and pregnancy on track

...ich in female mammals requires precise but dynamic regulation of hormone levels. Many biological processes, including sleep and wakefulness as well as feeding and metabolism, have a 24-hour rhythmicity. The circadian rhythms that underlie these patterns are controlled in the brain by a molecular clock t...

'Smart gene therapy' protects against damage from heart attack

... of oxygen deprivation," Dzau said. "Such internal regulation is ideal for safe and effective gene therapy." The researchers injected the gene construct into the heart, liver and skeletal muscle of three rats in the laboratory. Five weeks later, they restricted blood flow to the animals' organs by clamping key ...

Firefly compound lights up 'protein dance' in living animals

...tested the new technique on two proteins linked to regulation of the cell life cycle. An anti-cancer drug is being developed to block the interaction of these proteins. "We can now monitor the effects of that drug in live animals using the luciferase technique," says Piwnica-Worms. "It's been an exciting develo...

Study reveals surprising 'remodeling' property of gene regulation process

Researchers uncover surprising degree of large-scale variation in the human genome

...eptide-Y4 receptorthat is directly involved in the regulation of food intake and body weight. According to the study, a relationship between CNPs and susceptibility to health problems such as neurological disease, cancer, and obesity is an intriguing possibility. The study revealed considerable structural ...

Study yields insights into precancerous condition

...ad found that the diseases involved defects in the regulation of a protein called mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin). The researchers, therefore, decided to look for a link between LKB1 and mTOR. As predicted, their study found that mouse cells lacking LKB1 and cells from PJS mouse polyps showed the activatio...

New drug shows promise against Gleevec resistance in mice

...at The Rockefeller University, who had studied the regulation of Abl kinases for many years, made the seminal discovery that Gleevec, or STI-571, worked by binding to Abl when the enzyme was in its "off" position. If Abl was in the "on" position, the drug would not work. In the arcane worlds of cellular s...
