York U researchers uncovering how ovarian cancer resists chemotherapy

TORONTO, March 2, 2011 -- York University researchers have zeroed in on a genetic process that may allow ovarian cancer to resist chemotherapy. Researchers in the university's Faculty of Science & Engineering studied a tiny strand of our geneti...

Protein and microRNA block cellular transition vital to metastasis

HOUSTON - Like a bounty hunter returning escapees to custody, a cancer-fighting gene converts organ cells that change into highly mobile stem cells back to their original, stationary state, researchers report online at Nature Cell Biology. ...

New study finds molecular mechanisms that control Rb2/p130 gene expression in...

Despite innumerable studies on lung cancer, many aspects of the disease have yet to be understood, including the role played by the retinoblastoma-related protein Rb2/p130 in the evolution of the disease. In a new study, researchers from the Sba...

Oncogene AEG-1 strongly predicts response to erlotinib treatment in EGFR-mutant lung...

Spanish researchers have identified a gene whose expression level strongly predicts how well certain lung cancer patients will respond to treatment with the drug erlotinib. Dr Rafael Rosell and colleagues reported their findings at the European M...

Collisions of protein machines cause DNA replication derailment

Scientists have published results that will forever change the way researchers view the interplay between gene expression, DNA replication and the prevention of DNA damage. DNA damage, if not kept in check, can lead to many problems including can...

Turning off stress

Post-traumatic stress disorder can affect soldiers after combat or ordinary people who have undergone harrowing experiences. Of course, feelings of anxiety are normal and even desirable -- they are part of what helps us survive in a world of real t...

Attention ladies and gentlemen: Courtship affects gene expression

Scientists from Texas have made an important step toward understanding human mating behavior by showing that certain genes become activated in fruit flies when they interact with the opposite sex. This research, published in the January 2011 issue o...

Texas A&M study finds courtship affects gene expression in flies

COLLEGE STATION, Jan. 11, 2011 -- Biologists at Texas A&M University have made an important step toward understanding human mating behavior by showing that certain genes become activated in fruit flies when they interact with the opposite sex. Th...

MicroRNA-TP53 circuit connected to chronic lymphocytic leukemia

HOUSTON - The interplay between a major tumor-suppressing gene, a truncated chromosome and two sets of microRNAs provides a molecular basis for explaining the less aggressive form of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, an international team of researchers...

Different sources, same result

Numerous patients suffering from chronic liver diseases are currently receiving inadequate treatment due to the lack of organs donated for transplantation. However, hepatocytes derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) could offer an...
