Prevention of ERK Nuclear Translocation Blocks Cancer Proliferation in Animal Models

A team of cell biologists has shown that the cancer promoting effects of ERK dysregulation can be blocked by low molecular weight drugs that prevent translocation of this kinase from the cells' cytoplasm into the nucleus.  More...

Bile Acids Regulate Expression of a Tumor Suppressive MicroRNA

A recent paper explained how the tumor suppressive microRNA miR-22 is regulated in cells lining the gastrointestinal tract and how defective regulation leads to various types of cancer.  More...

New Model for Lung Disease Research Based on Stem Cell-derived Lung Organoids

By manipulating cocktails of growth factors, researchers have stimulated human stem cells to morph into tissues that self-organize into three-dimensional structures populated by cells resembling those in the lung.  More...

Small Interfering RNA Nanoparticles Accelerate Wound Healing in Mouse Model

The time required for wound healing in a mouse model was significantly shortened by treatment with nanoparticles that had been loaded with small interfering RNA that blocked the synthesis of the enzyme fidgetin-like 2.  More...

Certain MicroRNAs Stimulate Regeneration of Adult Heart Tissue

Cardiac disease researchers working with a mouse model have discovered that by inducing a subset of microRNAs that are active during development but silenced in the adult they could cause damaged adult heart tissue to regenerate.  More...
