Growth of common skin cancer blocked in gene-switch mice

...umor cells stopped growing and were eliminated via execution of a programmed cell death process. These results are consistent with previous work from other labs studying different Hh-associated tumors, "but we were very surprised to see that some tumor cells persisted after shutting down Gli2 expression," sai...

Autism linked to mirror neuron dysfunction

...stem is now thought to be involved not only in the execution and observation of movement, but also in higher cognitive processes language, for instance, or being able to imitate and learn from others' actions, or decode their intentions and empathize with their pain. Because autism is characterized, in part,...

Involving more than 1,300 scientists from 95 countries, the MA kicked off in 2001 under the auspices of the United Nations (UN), with financial backing from the Global Environment Facility, the UN Foundation and...

Siemens Medical solutions pledges $1.5 million to accelerate clinical cancer research

...roup charged by President George W. Bush to ensure execution of the National Cancer Program, the dearth of translational and clinical researchers--just two percent of the physician workforce nationwide--is a major factor contributing to the bottleneck that now limits the translation of cancer-related discoveri...

Panbio announces achievement

The principle of Panbio's Homogeneous Assay platform is based on Forced Enzyme Complementation, whereby an active enzyme is separated into two components. These two com...

Learned motor programs directly influence the visual perception of movements

... showed that subjects who were very skilled in the execution of the novel pattern were also more accurate in its perception. The study demonstrates that there is a direct influence of learned motor programs on visual action recognition, and that this influence is not a sole consequence of visual experience. T...

...s and caregivers who contributed to the successful execution of this global trial for this life-threatening and rare blood disorder." About SHEPHERD SHEPHERD was an open-label, global Phase III study in which patients received eculizumab for 52 weeks. The pre-specified primary endpoints of the trial were s...

Decision-making -- Demonstration of a link between cognition and execution

...ecision-making processes and those relative to the execution of motor acts. It constitutes a fundamental advance in our understanding of the physiological role of the basal ganglia and, more specifically, of Parkinson's disease. This work was published on January 31 in The Journal of Neuroscience. There a...

Plants do not emit methane

...f expertise and facilities enabling the design and execution of a novel experiment. Plants were grown in a facility containing atmospheric carbon dioxide almost exclusively with a heavy form of carbon (13C). This makes the carbon released from the plants relatively easy to detect. Thus, if plants are able to e...

Macrochem acquires option to license pexiganan

MicroRNA works with Ago2 protein to regulate blood cell development

... system, slicer activity doesnt have a role in the execution of microRNA function, but Ago2 does have a special role in the maintenance of microRNA levels, says OCarroll, who recently accepted a position at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Rome. Within the blood system, low levels of microRNA are...

Human knowledge is based upon directed connectivity between brain areas
