Bone Marrow Model Promotes Growth of Blood Cell Progenitors

A recently developed culture technique has enabled researchers to establish conditions that mimic human bone marrow niches and support the maintenance of some hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell lines. More...

Aspirin Prevents Diseases by Controlling Nucleolar Stress

By identifying the molecular factors controlling nucleolar stress, researchers were able to outline the mechanism by which aspirin affects this stress and protects against certain disease states including colon cancer. More...

Image: The image shows a DNA molecule that is methylated on both strands on the center cytosine. DNA methylation plays an important role for epigenetic gene regulation in development, cancer, and some hereditary disorders (Photo courtesy of Wikimedia Commons).

Epigenetic Variation May Be Responsible for Hereditary Disorders

Genomics researchers have suggested that some hereditary disorders are caused by epigenetic variation that modifies gene expression rather than by traditional mutation that changes the sequence of DNA bases. More...

Loss of Gene Activity Linked to Development of AD

A team of Canadian neurodegenerative disease researchers has identified a gene and its protein product that appear to be linked to the development of late-onset sporadic Alzheimer’s disease (AD), the most prevalent form of dementia. More...
