Scientists able to visualize mRNA molecules in brains of living mice
A team of researchers has developed a new imaging technique that gives scientists a real-time view into mRNA synthesis and gene expression in the brain of a mouse while it is still alive. Read More
Researchers discover how EGFR sends signals into cells, could help cancer drug design
Chemists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have revealed how the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) changes its shape when it binds to its target and how those changes trigger cells to grow and proliferate. Their insights into EGFR could help researchers design new cancer drugs that target this protein. Read More
Scientists use new method to better distinguish between mirror-image substances
Researchers have developed a new method to better distinguish between mirror-image substances, an important capability in drug development as two variants can cause completely different effects in the human body. Read More
NIH study shows how immune response to COVID-19 damages the brain
A National Institutes of Health (NIH) study, which examined brain changes in nine people who died suddenly after contracting COVID-19, found that antibodies are involved in the attack on cells lining the brain's blood vessels, leading to inflammation and damage. Read More
Ga. researchers combine DNA barcoding, target sequencing
Researchers in Georgia have developed a system to make preclinical nanoparticle studies more predictive that combines DNA barcoding with a multiomic nanoparticle delivery system called single-cell nanoparticle targeting-sequencing. Read More
Certain gene protects against dementia in mice
Researchers in Japan discovered that the gene p62 plays a neuroprotective role in mice models of dementia by eliminating and thus preventing the aggregation of oligomeric tau species in the brain according to an article published on June 5 in the journal Aging Cell. Read More
Study: 2 genes may lead to intellectual disability expression
Researchers at the University of Buffalo found that a convergent mechanism involving two genes may be responsible for how autism spectrum disorder/intellectual disability develop. Read More
