Dogs are an excellent animal model for studying cancer, a recent study published in PLOS Genetics found. The research identified genes that could possibly play a role in the development of brain cancer in both dogs and humans.
A stress receptor in the brain is found to regulate metabolic responses to stressful situations...
When it comes to measuring brain activity, scientists have tools that can take a precise look at...
Scientists have identified a molecular key that breast cancer cells use to invade bone marrow in mice, where they may be protected from chemotherapy or hormonal therapies that could otherwise eradicate them.
Terra Universal introduces its EZ-UP Cleanroom™, a modular softwall enclosure that meets ISO 7 cleanliness requirements. The flexible, plastic panels surround a powder-coated steel frame and connect using either industrial-grade zippers or radio-frequency (RF) welding. Softwall cleanrooms are often a more economical alternative to modular hardwall rooms, or permanent bricks-and-mortar enclosures.
Santa Cruz Biotechnology, Inc. has agreed to pay a $3.5 million fine, and revoke its research registration and dealer license in accordance with terms of a legal settlement with the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
A new molecular mechanism can be used to inhibit the growth of hepatocellular carcinoma, which is the most common liver cancer.
Unique connections in the adolescent brain make it possible to easily diminish fear memories and avoid anxiety later in life. The findings may have important implications for the treatment of trauma and anxiety disorders.
Researchers have developed a method of implanting cells to create a human bone-like structure in mice. This allows investigators to study a whole host of blood cancers and other diseases that they had trouble studying before.
Three canine genes for Caffey, Raine, and van den Ende-Gupta syndrome have been identified in a new study published in PLOS Genetics. These discoveries will help further the development of rare disease diagnostic and treatments, as well as veterinary diagnostics and breeding programs.
In a recent study, scientists identified a pathway through which transcription factor proteins regulate lymphangiogenesis, the formation of lymphatic vessels from pre-existing lymphatic vessels. These results suggest a new mechanism for diseases associated with lymphatic vessels, which transport fluid out of tissues as part of the body’s lymphatic system.
Chemistry has provided many key tools and techniques to the biological community in the last twenty years. We can now make proteins that Mother Nature never thought of, image unique parts of live cells and even see cells in live animals.
In a new study using mice and lab-grown human cells, a scientific team led by Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers show how a triple-drug cocktail can shrink triple-negative breast cancers by killing off cancer cells and halting new tumor growth.
Neuroscientists boost ability of aging brain to recapture links between related memories.
The TurnKey Awards were presented to the 2016 winners at the TurnKey Conference on May 24th at the Gaylord National Harbor Resort and Convention Center in Oxon Hill, MD (Washington, DC). The awards, given by ALN Magazine are in recognition of excellence in two categories: teamwork and facility design.
Nanosized Trojan horses created from a patient’s own immune cells have successfully treated inflammation by overcoming the body’s complex defense mechanisms, perhaps leading to broader applications for treating diseases characterized by inflammation, such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. "Personalized" DXM-loaded leukosomes were used to treat inflammation in mice.
Studying fruit flies, whose sleep is remarkably similar to that in people, researchers say they’ve identified brain cells that are responsible for why delaying bedtime creates chronic sleepiness.
Work in genetically-engineered mice has helped to reveal the role played by a Western-style diet, rich in fat and low in fiber, vitamin D and folate, in the development of colorectal cancer.
