In their studies, the researchers first tested the behavior of humans competing in a game in which a player was asked to click on a computer mouse to choose one of two ...

Muscling in on a deadly cancer

...this disease very poorly," Keller says. "This work represents a significant step forward in the understanding of the disease, and puts us on the path toward new therapies" less toxic to patients and better aimed at the cancer. Keller and Capecchi believe it still will take 10 to 20 years for new treatments...

New version of tumor-suppressor linked to progression of childhood cancer

... The researchers conclude that formation of TrkIII represents a tumor-promoting switch in NB. Preventing generation of TrkIII may serve to inhibit NB progression. "A potential mechanism for regulating NB progression based on alternative TrkAIII splicing rather than genetic TrkA abnormality would theoretically p...

Zebrafish may offer researchers powerful new tool for studying innate immunity

...R gene cluster in zebrafish reported in this paper represents a significant step toward understanding the mechanisms underlying the transition from non-specific innate immunity to specific adaptive immunity," Dr. Litman said. The researchers also found that only one of the 36 NITR genes is involved in the acti...

Its large pincers place the sea spiders firmly within a larger grouping that includes scorpions, mites, ticks, the real spiders and the horseshoe crab. Despite its ancient, Silurian age the new...

Newly discovered protein suggests novel tumorigenic pathway

...a tremendously difficult problem and this research represents a huge breakthrough. Maehama explained that this discovery indicates that cells with impaired PICT-1 function may become cancerous because of the resulting instability in PTEN. This would represent a new tumorigenic pathway that is not due to a defe...
