Molecular basis of tumor cell behavior

A new study by a team of researchers sheds light on the molecular basis by which tumour cells modulate their surroundings to favor cancer progression.

Trembling hands and molecular handshakes

Fragile X tremor/ataxia syndrome is a recently recognised condition, which is actually one of the most prevalent heritable neurodegenerative diseases.

The molecular structure of prions

Research has led to the first direct information about the molecular structure of prions and also the surprisingly large structural differences between natural prions and the closest synthetic analogs that scientists have created in the lab.

Nanotechnology molecular gear developed

Scientists have scored a breakthrough in nanotechnology by becoming the first in the world to invent a molecular gear of the size of 1.2nm whose rotation can be deliberately controlled.

Match between molecular, fossil data

Why bother classifying organisms according to their physical appearance, let alone analyse their evolutionary dynamics, when molecular techniques had already invalidated that approach?

Mimicry at the molecular level

A new study draws new parallels between the Rad60 DNA repair factor and SUMO, a small ubiquitin-like modifier, which are both essential for maintaining genome stability during replication.

Molecular alliance

One of the four ingredients in the genetic recipe that scientists followed last year to persuade human skin cells to revert to an embryonic stem cell state, is dispensable in ES cells.

Understanding the molecular basis for food-allergic reactions

Eight foods account for 90percent of all reactions in the USA: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts such as walnuts and pistachios, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish such as lobster and shrimp.

SPR-based instruments for molecular binding studies

Surface plasmon resonance enables the detailed study of biomolecular function in real time and without the need for fluorescent tags or radioactive markers, and often without the need for prior purification. Elab reports.

Scientists identify molecular system that could help develop potential treatments for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease

Scientists have identified the molecular system that contributes to the harmful inflammatory reaction in the brain during neurodegenerative diseases.

Scientists pinpoint molecular signals that make some women prone to miscarriage

Scientists have identified molecular signals that control whether embryos are accepted by the womb, and that appear to function abnormally in women who have suffered repeated miscarriages.

Discovery of molecular pathway of Alzheimer's disease reveals new drug targets

The discovery of the molecular pathway that drives the changes seen in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients is reported today, revealing new targets for drug discovery that could be exploited to combat the disease.

Automation to push molecular diagnostics markets to new level

The potential for enhanced clinical efficiency and reduced costs is fuelling the interest of healthcare stakeholders in preventive medicine. Molecular diagnostics is a vital tool to support this trend

Molecular evolution of influenza

Fujian Center for Disease Control & Prevention, China, reported the molecular evolution of influenza A (H3N2) viruses in Fujian Province, south of China during the period 1996-2004.

Conventional to molecular

Researchers have set the stage for building the evolutionary link between the microelectronics of today and future generations of organic devices.
