Molecular Manipulation Induces Skin Cells to Produce Hair

Working with mouse skin cells, researchers have generated hair-producing follicles from newborn and adult cells and traced the molecular pathways that control their development. More...

Progress Reported in Development of Gene Editing Tool

Progress has been reported in the effort to develop a CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing tool to be used for modifying RNA rather than the usual target DNA. More...

Gene Editing Used to Repair Mutations in Embryos

The CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing tool was used to correct a mutation in the DNA of a human embryo, and the problem of mosaicism was avoided by carrying out the gene editing step while the embryo was still a single-cell fertilized egg. More...

Interaction of Cell Surface Glycoproteins Drives Tumor Metastasis

Cancer researchers have shown how the interaction between two classes of cell surface glycoprotein molecules determines when a tumor will metastasize and release cells that migrate and generate secondary growths. More...

Folate-Bound MicroRNAs Slow Tumor Progression in Models

A growth-inhibiting microRNA conjugated to molecules of folate reduced tumor size when delivered to mice with lung and breast cancer tumors that overexpressed the folate receptor. More...

Normal Skin Resists and Rejects Cancerous Growth

While examining the biological effects that emerge from interactions between cancerous cells and neighboring normal skin cells, cancer researchers demonstrated the ability of the skin to eliminate the mutant cells. More...

Novel In Vitro Method May Revolutionize Antibody Production

A novel method for boosting the ability of a vaccine to stimulate production of antibodies is based on the in vitro stimulation of B-cells with nanoparticles conjugated to both GpG and antigen. More...
