Protein Fragment Promotes Anti-Cancer Response

Free C3d protein, a fragment of the third component of complement, has been found to prevent cancer cells from avoiding the body's immune response and has potential to be developed into a chemotherapeutic agent for cancer treatment. More...

Image: A recent study found that about 6,500 genes are expressed differently in men and women (Photo courtesy of the Weizmann Institute of Science).

Gene Expression Suggests Sexes Evolve Differently

A team of molecular geneticists has found that a large number of genes are expressed differently in men and women, which begins to explain why that despite sharing almost identical genomes the two sexes are distinctly dimorphic, with dissimilar disease susceptibilities and mutation rates. More...

Biomarker Traces Glaucoma Development and Progression

A potential biomarker protein has been identified that was elevated in rodent models of glaucoma and in fluid taken from the eyes of human patients with the disease. More...

Image: Neurons from Angelman syndrome (AS) patients lack expression of the UBE3A protein due to an epigenetic defect. The photomicrograph shows that a new method restored normal expression of the UBE3A protein in neurons derived from the cells of an AS patient by correcting the aberrant methylation pattern (Photo courtesy of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies).

Artificial Editing Technique Modifies Gene Activity

A team of molecular biologists has developed an artificial epigenetic editing technique that adds methyl groups to DNA and modifies specific gene activity in a hereditary manner. More...

Image: Fluorescent imaging of a tumor section identifies different types of macrophages (green) and T-cells (blue) present in the microenvironment of renal cell carcinoma (Photo courtesy of Karina Silina, University of Zurich).

Mass Cytometry Profiles to Aid Drug Development

Cancer researchers used a novel mass cytometry technique to reveal potential biomarkers for detection of renal cell carcinoma and to identify targets for development of immunotherapeutic agents to treat this essentially incurable disease. More...

Stem Cell and 3D Printing Generate Viable Tissue

A team of Swedish cell biologists combined three-dimensional (3D) bio-printing with advanced stem cell technology to create viable cultures of cartilage tissue that had cellular and mechanical properties similar to patients’ natural cartilage. More...

Image: Using CRISPR technology, researchers rewired stem cells to produce an anti-inflammatory arthritis drug for when the cells encounter inflammation (Photo courtesy of Ella Marushchenko).

Modified Stem Cells Used to Correct Arthritis Inflammation

Researchers have used CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technology to create mouse stem cells able to infiltrate the joints, form cartilage tissue, and correct the autoimmune defects that are responsible for arthritis. More...
