New Model to Aid Research on Rare Type of Aggressive Breast Cancer

Cancer researchers have created a new mouse model that will allow them to study in vivo the molecular factors linked to the development of metaplastic breast cancer, a rare form of triple-negative breast cancer. More...

Combined Gene and Immunotherapy Shows Potential for Aggressive Brain Tumors

A novel approach that combined gene and immunotherapy demonstrated considerable potential in a mouse model as a method for treating the aggressive brain tumor glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). More...

Interrupting a Molecular Signaling Pathway to Treat Prostate Cancer

Cancer researchers have traced a molecular pathway that is active in treatment resistant prostate cancer and have suggested therapeutic strategies to circumvent it. More...

Image: Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), which extend longer than 200 nucleotides, have emerged as additional important players in the control of gene expression. They fine-tune the expression of numerous genes and direct the activity of complex regulatory pathways, often in a cell- and developmental-stage-specific manner (Photo courtesy of Julia Yellow).

Polypeptide Encoded by Non-Coding RNA Regulates Muscle Regeneration

Their name notwithstanding, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been found to actually encode synthesis of small polypeptides that can fine-tune the activity of critical cellular components. More...

Mechanism Found Blocks Activity of Anti-Cancer Lymphocytes

Cancer researchers have found that myeloid-derived suppressor cells, cells that help tumors avoid recognition by the body's immune system, work by stripping a molecule from the surface of lymphocytes, which they require for entry into the lymph nodes. More...

Online Database to Facilitate Identification of RNA Viruses by PCR

In order to facilitate identification of RNA viruses involved in human disease, disease outbreaks, and epidemics, a team of Korean molecular virologists has created a comprehensive online database of primers for use in identifying these viruses by PCR analysis. More...

Artemisinin Hastens TB Cure by Preventing Bacteria from Becoming Dormant

A team of microbiologists has found that a drug usually used to treat malaria can shorten the time needed to treat tuberculosis (TB) by preventing the causative organism (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) from entering a dormant, drug resistant state. More...
