Kinase backgrounder: Iressa discovery part of major kinase project at Dana-Farber

...s may get stuck in the "on" position, continuously sending signals for the cell to grow and divide, and leading to uncontrolled proliferation of cells and tumor formation. A "stuck" signal switch is often caused by a harmful change, or mutation, in the gene that makes the kinase. In the last decade or so, dr...

Fat cells heal skull defects in mice, Stanford research shows

...gan next to the brain, suggesting those cells were sending out bone growth-promoting signals and emphasizing the importance of the local environment in determining cell fate. "The analogy is one of seeds and soil," said Longaker. "The cells are the seeds, and the soil that enables them to form bone consists ...

Germans must research the history of reproductive medicine during the Nazi era

...erman gynaecologists placed great hopes in Hitler, sending him their 'enthusiastic admiration' in a telegram," says Prof Winau. "The execution of the law on preventing genetic diseases in children is an example of the conformity of many Germany gynaecologists to the racial ideas and the concept of racial hyg...

Brain serotonin enzyme finding might explain psychiatric disorders

...lls called neurons. When stimulated, neurons fire, sending a wave of electrical charge from one end to the other. To bridge the gap between nerves, the neurons release chemical neurotransmitters, including serotonin, that set off an impulse in receiving neurons. Once the original cell has passed its message ...

Funding to commercialize technologies of UC San Diego engineers tops $1.2 million

... devices (e.g., 500 Hz and above), and because the sending and receiving electronics can be mounted at some distance from the high temperature process, only a small optical access is needed for the fiber-optical input and exit. The von Liebig Center grant will pay for proof-of-concept and prototyping work, i...

'Anti-plume' found off Pacific Coast

...e. "It's like an anti-plume," he said. "Instead of sending materials from within the Earth to the ocean floor, it simply sucks down the surrounding seawater." The researchers aren't sure exactly what causes the dilation, but it has multiple implications. First, it changes how scientists view seafloor spread...

Scientists pinpoint molecules that generate synapses

...and illicit drugs. "We knew that the apparatus for sending and receiving chemical and electrical signals was concentrated at the synapses where neurons connect with each other," Sanes says. "We wanted to determine how these special sites form." As the early nervous system develops into a dense tangle of neur...

Leptin and obesity

This message is then sent to another part of the hypothalamus, where another peptide is produced and released. This stimulates the pituitary gland, which secretes a hormone that relays the messag...

UCI study reveals gene linked to breast cancer can suppress tumors
