Lack of Gene that Protects Mice Promotes Anti-Viral Immunity in Humans

Researchers have resolved the question of why a gene that plays an important role in protecting mice from viral infection does not have a similar role in humans. More...

Study Shows HOXA5 Impedes Breast Cancer Tumor Initiation and Progression

A team of cancer researchers has discovered that the HOXA5 (Homeobox protein Hox-A5) gene, which is not found in many breast cancers, acts as a tumor suppressor by regulating E-cadherin and CD24. More...

Study Links p62 Protein to Likelihood of Liver Cancer Recurrence

Cancer researchers have linked levels of the ubiquitin-binding autophagy receptor protein p62 (Sequestosome-1) in liver cells to the development and recurrence of hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs). More...

Rapid Injection Technique Improves Production of Genetically Engineered Mice

An electroporation method has been introduced that improves the production of genetically altered "knock-out" mice by requiring less time and being more efficient at introducing the CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing complex than is the current microinjection method. More...
