SAGE-acious prediction of thyroid carcinoma

...d four genes (DDIT3, ARG2, ITM1, and C1orf24) with statistically significant gene expression differences between FTC and FTA. They used these differentially expressed genes as predictive markers for carcinoma in a series of patient cases. RT-PCR analysis of patient samples for the markers successfully predicted tu...

Bay area to get unique x-ray microscopy resource

...he new TXM at the ALS will be able to accumulate a statistically significant volume of data within a relatively short time. Larabell and Le Gros have been using an existing TXM at the ALS to demonstrate the potential of using this technology in cell and molecular biology studies. The existing TXM, called XM-1, th...

NIST-led research de-mystifies origins of 'junk' DNA

...Evolution . The results are based on a systematic, statistically rigorous analysis of publicly available genetic data carried out with bioinformatics software developed at CARB. In humans, there is so much apparent "junk" DNA (sections of the genome with no known function) that it takes up more space than the func...

Researchers develop computer application to 'read' medical literature, find data relationships

...entify general themes, Dr. Garner said, along with statistically exceptional groupings within the list (such as drugs affecting the activity of a group of genes). Researchers also can infer how cohesive an experimental grouping is based upon relationships documented in the literature and identify missing members i...

BRCA mutations do not increase risk of colorectal cancer

...he results of DNA testing, U-M scientists found no statistically significant difference between the number of cancer patients with BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations (24), and the number of non-cancer controls whose DNA contained one of these mutations (20). "We found no strong common genetic basis between colorectal and br...

Conclusions Alcohol acutely increases c-myc mRNA in skeletal muscle, possibly reflecting a preapoptotic effect, a compensatory stimulus to induce hypertrophy to counter...

A human hormone, combined with a full stomach, offers clues for understanding our food intake

Results Highlights of the results included the following observations: The combination of CCK and distension of 3...

Pesticide delays sexual maturation

...ticular descent in the study group, but it was not statistically significant due to a small sample size. "Our study results suggest that endosulfan exposure may delay sexual maturity and interfere with hormone synthesis in male children," the study authors write. "The practice of aerial spraying of endosulfan was...

Effects of maternal myasthenia gravis on pregnancy and birth examined

Hoff said results of the study shouldn't discourage women with MG from giving birth, but that they should plan to have access to good medical care should complications arise. Neonatal deaths did not rise sig...

Protein biomarkers accurately and quickly diagnose ALS, find Pittsburgh researchers
