Jefferson scientists find rabies-based vaccine could be effective against HIV

...a have used a drastically weakened rabies virus to ferry HIV-related proteins into animals, in essence, vaccinating them against an AIDS-like disease. The early evidence shows that the vaccine which doesnt protect against infection prevents development of disease. Reporting April 1, 2007 in the Journa...

Polymers show promise for gene delivery, tissue scaffolds, other biomedical applications

...ew family of gene vectors novel polymers that can ferry genetic material across the cell membrane so that it can be incorporated into the machinery of the cell. Representing Virginia Tech faculty members and students from engineering, chemistry, and veterinary medicine, Chemistry Professor Tim Long will...

Novel laboratory technique nudges genes into activity

...d "copied" to strands of messenger RNA, which then ferry the plans to protein-making "factories" in the cell. In its experiments, the UT Southwestern team used strands of RNA that were tailor-made to complement the DNA sequence of a specific gene in isolated breast cancer cells. Once the RNA was introdu...

After the Hurricanes

...2006 (Reporters will depart Key West at 8 a.m. via ferry for a ~2-hour ride to that day's dive location and the R/V Spree, and return to Key West at ~5 p.m.) WHERE: The dive locations are in the Dry Tortugas National Park and the Tortugas Ecological Reserve. Reporters are advised to overnight in Key West...

UW scientists unravel critical genetic puzzle for flu virus replication

...g the possibility of using strains of influenza to ferry genes from one virus to another to speed and optimize vaccine production. More efficient methods of vaccine production will be critical should a global outbreak such as the "Spanish " flu pandemic of 1918 recur. That pandemic killed an estimated 30-5...

UW scientists report a new method to speed bird flu vaccine production

...reducing the number of plasmid vectors required to ferry viral genes into the monkey kidney cells used to produce the virus particles to make vaccines."Compared to other types of cells, which are not approved for vaccine production, it is not always easy to introduce plasmids into the monkey kidney cells, ...

Image of myosin-actin interaction revealed in cover story of Molecular Cell

...khorse of the myosin protein family. It exists to ferry a cargo of proteins needed in a specific place at a specific time. Fueled by hydrolysis -- the process of converting the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into energy -- myosin V travels in one direction using actin as a track to deliver its payl...

Single genetic defect links many risk factors for heart disease and stroke

... Transfer RNAs are critical carrier molecules that ferry amino acids during the constructions of proteins in the cell. During the translation of genetic material to a protein, a tRNA latches onto a specific amino acid that it was designed to carry and transports it to the site of protein synthesis. There, ...

Technique for genetically modifying blood stem cells brings cure for blood diseases closer

...e by using a newly developed vector--or biological ferry composed of DNA housed within a harmless virus--to shuttle a therapeutic gene into the defective HSCs. The gene allowed red cells that were derived from the HSCs to make gamma-globin, a protein that acted as a substitute for beta-globin. The resultin...
