...vior by restoring p53 function. Additional studies would be needed to demonstrate that, however. "We clearly need of new ways to fight lung cancer," says Villalona, noting that lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States and claims more than one million lives worldwide every year...

Study identifies molecular complex vital to creation of miRNAs

...rome patients, but perhaps also more globally? "It would certainly be possible to look in schizophrenic populations for mutations in the DGCR8 gene," says Shiekhattar. "If those mutations were found, it could suggest of a significant role for miRNAs in schizophrenia." In the course of their study of the mi...

How running made us human
