Cell interactions in spermatocyte apoptosis

...th dichloromethane, which replaces the missing CO, restores this response. Hence, they argue, CO generated within the Leydig cells reaches the developing spermatocytes and causes them to undergo Fas-dependent apoptosis, rather than meiosis. Interestingly, treatment with dichloromethane alone does not cause ap...

Gene for neat repair of DNA discovered

...e ways. The neat manner, homologous recombination, restores the break by copying information from an intact DNA molecule to the broken DNA molecule. The careless manner is called "sticking" recombination. This repair mechanism comes into play when the same piece of DNA is present slightly further along the sa...

Gene therapy restores feeding behavior to starving mice

...cientists will attempt to pinpoint the region that restores feeding and possibly dissociate it from nest-building behavior. They also plan to restore dopamine production to dopamine-producing neurons in the substantia nigra and the ventral tegmental area. They predict that this treatment will correct the moto...

An off switch for epilepsy?

...o not understand exactly how a jolt of electricity restores a normal heartbeat, but it does. Gluckman's feedback system may be used to investigate some of these questions. The group can change the system's electrical settings to achieve a reverse effect, so it can be used with very precise control to ini...
