Cystic fibrosis gene mutations missing from some cases

... of its gene (so-called "epigenetics"), are at the root of these patients' conditions. To cause disease, any changes must reduce or alter how the CFTR protein works. In classic CF, there's no working CFTR protein, and a thick mucous forms that traps bacteria in the airways, causing infections. In the no...

Researchers create new strategy for removing arsenic from soil

...he genes into cottonwood trees, which have a large root system and could be useful in the phytoremediation of arsenic." Most arsenic in surface soil and water exists primarily in its oxidized form, arsenate. Plants actively take up arsenate, mistaking it for phosphate and transfer it to their leaves. The ...

Fungus-enhanced plants popular with grasshoppers

...Tucson, Ariz. Fungi called mycorrhizae live in the root systems of nearly all land-based plants. The fungus is not dangerous. In fact, it gives nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen to the plant, while the plant feeds the fungus with life-giving carbon. The mutually beneficial relationship is called symb...

CWRU scientists demystify protein at root of arthritis

Researchers discover molecular 'switch' that tells body to store or burn fat

...tory at Rockefeller. Leptin, named after the Greek root "leptos" meaning thin, was subsequently identified by Friedman's group in 1995. Friedman and his colleagues showed that leptin is a fat cell hormone that functions as a nutritional signal to regulate body weight, metabolism and other physiologic proc...

Gene linked to type 1 diabetes

This switch, called 'Rop,' needs to be turned up and then down to initiate the proper physiological response to this stress of low oxygen." "This is breakthrough research," said Airica Baxter-Burrell, graduate student in plant genetics at UC ...

Stanford researcher advocates aggressive, preventive anal cancer treatment

...Not all doctors, however, agree that HPV is at the root of the cancer. Most doctors instead simply treat anal cancer once it develops rather than take a preventive approach. "There's no other organ where we wait until cancer develops," Welton said. He pointed to the cervix, breast, colon and skin ...
