Scientists find impaired chromatin structure formation & imprinted gene involvement in Rett Syndrome

December 20, 2004 - A research team led by Terumi Kohwi-Shigematsu of the Life Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has identified a gene, DLX5, that may play a role in the pathology of Rett Syndrome, a devastating neurological disorder diagnosed almost exclusively in...

Timing is everything for optimum combined cancer therapy

The team, led by Bin Zhang, PhD, a Senior Research Investigator in Trojanowski's and Lee's laboratory, gave the tau transgenic mice weekly injections of Paxceed at a high and low dose for 12 weeks. At both doses, more protein traveled down the spinal axon and the ...

Violent ocean motion no magic potion for reefs

...for several years, but hurricane havoc has instead led the team to a surprising find. With their first survey nearly completed, it appears all reefs in the path of hurricanes Frances and Jeanne have been largely scoured free of the menacing seaweed, and many have also been buried in sand. Seaweed overgro...

Tsien , a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at the University of California, San Diego, reported its achievement in the November 30, 2004, issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In related but separate s...

'Jumping gene' helps explain immune system's abilities

A team led by Johns Hopkins scientists has found the first clear evidence that the process behind the human immune system's remarkable ability to recognize and respond to a million different proteins might have originated from a family of genes whose only appar...

"It's as if we have in our hands a giant book of life, but we are barely beginning to learn how to read it." "Our technique gives us a new way to index the code, to find the places where regulators act -- where the ...

Evidence that human brain evolution was a special event

...brains spread in the population very quickly. This led ultimately to a dramatic "speeding up" of evolution in genes controlling brain size and complexity. "People in many fields, including evolutionary biology, anthropology and sociology, have long debated whether the evolution of the human brain was a ...

University of Chicago researchers discovered that humans are a 'privileged' evolutionary lineage

...rger brain might be due to the same processes that led to the evolution of a larger antler or a longer tusk. It's just a particular feature that is exaggerated in the human species. "We've proven that there is a big distinction. Human evolution is, in fact, a privileged process because it involves a larg...
