Study begins to reveal clues to the cause and progression of sepsis

...s inflammatory response to an infection, which can lead to organ failure and death. More than 30 percent will die, making sepsis the 10th leading cause of death. While incidence rates of sepsis have been steadily increasing over the years, little is known about the condition. Past investigational treatmen...

Similarly, faulty regulation of white blood cell movement plays a role in heart attack - another promising target for applying the new insights of the regulation of cell movement, the authors say. White blood ...

Protein 'chatter' linked to cancer activation

...u-Dong Zhu, assistant professor of biology and the lead author on the study. As we age, our chromosome ends become shorter. Individuals whose ends deteriorate faster are at a higher risk of developing cancer because short chromosome ends are a serious threat to the stability of our genome. When the genom...

Features of replication suggest viruses have common themes, vulnerabilities

Gene regulation, not just genes, is what sets humans apart

... Duke biology professor Gregory Wray. Haygood is lead author in a report on the research to be published online on Sunday, Aug. 12, in the research journal Nature Genetics. His group looked at the regulatory sequences immediately adjacent to 6,280 genes on the DNA of chimps, humans and the rhesus m...

MIT creates 3-D images of living cell

They modify the cancer-causing molecules that would otherwise damage cellular DNA, thus rendering them inert. They actually convert known carcino...

Does the desire to consume alcohol and tobacco come from our genetic makeup?

...ng. Conclusions According to Mr. Nikpay, the lead author of the research, We have found evidence of linkage and association for several genomic regions harboring genes with potential pathophysiological functions relating to alcohol and smoking. Our sex specific findings may also play a role in the s...

High blood pressure, low energy -- a recipe for heart failure

...nges in the ability of the heart to produce energy lead to heart failure in some cases. "ERR and some of its partners in the cell are a little like puppeteers controlling the expression of genes for energy production," Kelly says. "This research is especially exciting because ERR can be activated with sma...

X-ray images help explain limits to insect body size

...team focused in particular on the passageways that lead from the body core to the head and to the legs. They reasoned that these orifices may be bottlenecks for tracheal tubes, limiting how much oxygen can be delivered to the extremities. We were surprised to find that the effect is most pronounced in t...

Abnormal fat metabolism underlies heart problems in diabetic patients
