Baumann Lab defines proteins that distinguish chromosome ends from DNA double-strand breaks

... out to define the minimal requirements that would allow the DNA repair machinery to distinguish a chromosome end from a break," said Dr. Baumann. "By establishing an in vitro assay for chromosome end protection and by implicating specific proteins, we have opened the door to elucidate the mechanism by whi...

LIAI scientists make important finding on cytomegalovirus transmission

...e IL-10 molecule to bind to its receptor, then you allow these T cells to do their job and reduce or eliminate this virus." Croft said the scientists also tested a second approach, which used a stimulator antibody in mice to boost the action of the OX40 protein. OX40 helps T cells replicate more quickly...

Egyptians, not Greeks were true fathers of medicine

...botanical samples are most related to. "This may allow us to determine a likely point of origin for the plant while providing additional evidence for the trade routes, purposeful cultivation, trade centres or places of treatment," said Dr Metcalfe. "The work is inextricably linked to state-of-the-art c...

FDG-PET imaging clearly predicts lung cancer patients' response to chemotherapy

...t the end of the first cycle of chemotherapy would allow the identification of those patients for whom the therapy was futile, he said. The ability to provide an early indication of therapeutic response has the potential to improve patient care by identifying those patients who do not benefit from their cu...

Species thrive when sexual dimorphism broadens their niches

...species, for example, must have larger pelvises to allow the birth of large offspring. "Another explanation is that sexual differences arise so that the sexes can utilize different resources and not compete with each other," Losos says. "In some hummingbirds, for example, the sexes differ in the length o...

University of Pittsburgh discovers genetic 'shut down' trigger in healthy immune cells

...there is a good biological reason for this. It may allow the cells to survive in a low-oxygen environment, such as where there is cancer or infection," said Dr. Baysal. "It is part of the process for immune cells to armor up for battle against cancer cells and other diseases." Earlier research on the mut...

Cataloging the structural variations in human genetics

...structural variation in the human genome will also allow geneticists to analyze single-base-pair changes more effectively, according to Aravinda Chakravarti, a geneticist at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who was not a coauthor of the paper. "We have to look at structural variants from a d...
