Beagles win first round in fight for reprieve from patenting

...UT's patent claim on beagles. After the University responds within 60 days, AAVS and PatentWatch will have the opportunity to comment, setting up the case for a final decision by the Examiner at the USPTO. AAVS and PatentWatch will be vigorous in ensuring that the patent is ultimately cancelled. ...

Gene expression profiling may predict head, neck cancer recurrence

... which in turn provides insights into how the cell responds to its changing needs. A microarray is a tool for analyzing gene expression that consists of a small membrane or glass slide containing samples of many genes arranged in a regular pattern. It works by exploiting the ability of a given mRNA molecule t...

Biosensor-regulated gene therapy reduces heart attack damage in mice

...a, FL (April 6, 2004) -- A novel gene therapy that responds specifically to oxygen-starved heart muscle may protect against further injury following a heart attack, a study by University of South Florida cardiovascular researchers found. Their findings are reported in the April 2004 issue of the journal Hype...

BioMed Central explodes Open Access myths

...ent inquiry. Today's statement from BioMed Central responds to each of the major "anti-Open Access" arguments made during the course of the inquiry so far. "We felt it was important, at this stage when many people are hearing about Open Access for the first time, to dispel some of these myths," says Jan Velte...

Dioxin-receptor network identified

A cell responds to pollutants - such as dioxin - via intricate and complex biochemical pathways beginning with the interaction of the pollutant molecule with a cell surface receptor. Christopher Bradfield and colleagues used yeast as a model system to elucidate the ...

Scientists at Scripps Research Institute describe structure of receptor on surface of 1918 flu virus

...t the human immune system primarily recognizes and responds to by making antibodies and mounting an immune defense. How deadly an individual influenza infection is depends on how well one person's immune system recognizes the hemagglutinin. One of the questions the researchers asked was whether the Spanish F...

...is the well-established neuroendocrine system that responds to stress. The pituitary gland serves as a reservoir for the most important regulators of this system: arginine-vasopressin peptide (AVP) and corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). AVP is involved in smooth muscle contraction and its effects are medi...

Zwiebel, associate professor of biological sciences at Vanderbilt, who participated in the study. His co-authors were Vanderbilt graduate student A. Nicole Fox along with Yale colleagues Elissa A....

Cells' ability to open blood's floodgates hinges on unexpected factors

...ell increases its activity, the circulatory system responds by increasing blood flow to the activated cells. They assumed this happens so the blood can supply the cells with more sugar and oxygen as fuel for the increased workload. Over the past decade, a growing body of evidence has suggested that this idea,...

He has made a significant contribution to explaining the biological function of various immune substances in the body (cytokines). He was also involved in developing the method of gene targeting, which led to...

A little stress may be good for you

...ein called heat shock factor senses the stress and responds by turning on the genes that encode molecular chaperones. Proteins are basic components of all living cells. To do its job properly, each protein first must fold itself into the proper shape. In this process, the protein is assisted by molecular ...

Estrogen promotes gender differences in brain's response to stress

A better understanding of such processes may help to elucidate the reason that women are more susceptible to stress-related disorders, and lead to the development of better anti-depressant treatments. To examine the effects o...

New findings implicate cell size controls in a variety of diseases

...cribe how a cell growth regulator gene called TSC2 responds to different levels of available energy, such as the sugar glucose. As expected, they found that TSC2 activity is stepped up in response to energy starvation, which means the cell's growth rate is being slowed to accommodate the less favorable growin...
