A receptor protein that is the target of the breast cancer drug trastuzumab (Herceptin) is needed for proper heart blood-vessel development, reported researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine a... Read More
Researchers Discover a New Gene That Controls Angiogenensis
In a study conducted by Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS) and the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS), researchers discovered a new gene that controls blood vessel formation. This work presents a ... Read More
Researchers Identify a New RNA Type that Controls Gene Methylation Process
The creation of memories in the brain involves addition or removal of methyl groups at precise spots on chromosomal DNA. But what controls the careful targeting of these neuronal DNA methylation dynam... Read More
Researchers Study Unusual Mechanism of Action of an Anti-HIV Drug
A new type of HIV drug currently being tested works in an unusual way, scientists in the Molecular Medicine Partnership Unit, a collaboration between EMBL and Heidelberg University Hospital, have foun... Read More
Researcher Develop a New Technique to Treat Diseases Caused by a Mutation in a Bicistronic Gene
Neuroscientists at the University of Chicago studying a unique gene that expresses two proteins, one that is necessary for life and another, that when mutated causes a neurodegenerative disease called... Read More
Increasing Autophagy Decrease Lung Damage Induced by Hyperoxia
By triggering a process called autophagy—in which cells literally engulf their own insides —researchers from Drexel University and Yale University were able to decrease lung injury in mice... Read More
Researcher Distinguish Between Two Dopamine Neurons in the Brain
Two Northwestern University neuroscientists have identified the neurochemical signal likely missing in Parkinson's disease by being the first to discover two distinctly different kinds of neurons ... Read More
Scientists Reveal Anti-Aging Effects of Pomegranate
Are pomegranates really the superfood we've been led to believe will counteract the aging process? Up to now, scientific proof has been fairly weak. And some controversial marketing tactics have l... Read More
Researcher Identify a Protein in Drosophila That Resembles Characteristics of Intermediate Filament Proteins in Humans
Providing structural support and protection against such conditions as blistering, cataracts and dementia, intermediate filament proteins (IFs) reside in every cell in the human body. In insects, howe... Read More
Saliva DNA Preservation Devices Used in "Detection of Novel Integrons in the Metagenome of Human Saliva"
Integrons are commonly found in bacterial genomes, especially in most Gram-negative bacteria. They are involved in the dissemination and differential expression of genes in the bacterial popula... Read More
New technique Developed to Deliver Chemotherapeutics to Brain Tumors

Camouflaged Trojan Horses Engineered to Specifically Target Inflammation
Nanosized Trojan horses created from a patient's own immune cells have successfully treated inflammation by overcoming the body's complex defense mechanisms, perhaps leading to broader applica... Read More
New Diagnostic Tool Differentiates Aggressive DCIS Tumors from Non-aggressive Ones
When a woman is diagnosed with the earliest stage of breast cancer, how aggressive should her treatment be? Will the non-invasive cancer become invasive? Or is it a slow-growing variety that will like... Read More
Kataegis in Cancers Associated with Better Prognosis
Kataegis is a recently discovered phenomenon in which multiple mutations cluster in a few hotspots in a genome. The anomaly was previously found in some cancers, but it has been unclear what role kata... Read More
