Monsanto to share technologies with Danforth Center to support global cassava research
...d. Cassava, a tropical crop grown for its starchy, tuberous
roots, contributes to food security and rural income in many developing countries and feeds nearly 600 million people daily. A recent report by the United Nations singled out cassava as a priority for additional research in developing countries. T...
Mouse model mimics natural development of epilepsy
...ve developed a mouse model of the genetic disorder tuberous
sclerosis complex (TSC). The mice develop epilepsy within the first few months of life, mimicking one of the most devastating complications of TSC in children. This research represents one of the first animal models of epilepsy that does not require ...
Researchers find new piece of cell growth puzzle
...ini. This seems to be the case in tumors caused by tuberous
sclerosis, a genetic disease that causes tuber-like growths throughout the body that calcify with age and become hard. In the cells of these tumors, the TOR pathway is insensitive to nutrient starvation. As a result, cell growth goes unchecked and ce...
