Integrated Proteogenomic Characterization of Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

November 28th, 2019|0 Comments

In recent years, the molecular view of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) has been based primarily on gene transcription data with limited information on protein features. A new study led by the Clinical Proteomic […]

CO2 – Guzzling Bacteria Made in the Lab Could Help Tackle Climate Change

November 27th, 2019|0 Comments

Over the course of several months, researchers created Escherichia coli strains that consume carbon dioxide for energy instead of organic compounds. This achievement in synthetic biology highlights the incredible plasticity of bacterial metabolism and could […]

Fungi Library Could Aid in the Search for Medical Drugs

November 26th, 2019|0 Comments

An enormous library of products derived from more than 10,000 fungi could help us find new drugs. Researchers have set up this library and screened it for biologically active compounds. The researchers identified various known […]

Improved efficiency of Langerhans cell transplantation to treat Diabetes

November 7th, 2019|0 Comments

The absence of functional insulin-producing cells characterizes severe Type 1 Diabetes. The last resort to treat severe type 1 diabetes is pancreatic cell transplantation. The islets are removed from a donor’s pancreas, isolated, and then […]

November 7th, 2019|0 Comments

A group of scientists at the medical devices and health care expert company Abbott has discovered a new strain of HIV. This strain of the virus is the first to be identified in 19 years.

New model designed for understanding mitochondrial proteome in diseased conditions

November 6th, 2019|0 Comments

Karolinska Institutet researchers have developed a new research tool for studying how mitochondrial protein synthesis is affected by the disease, pharmaceuticals, aging, and different physiological situations such as exercise and diet.

Teamwork by different T-cell types boosts tumour destruction by immunotherapy

October 23rd, 2019|0 Comments

Immunotherapy treatment harnesses CD8 T cells of the immune system to kill tumour cells. The finding that CD4 helper T cells contribute to the success of this treatment in mice might offer a way to […]

Lifestyle is a threat to gut bacteria: Ötzi proves it, study shows

October 18th, 2019|0 Comments

The evolution of dietary and hygienic habits in Western countries is associated with a decrease in the bacteria that help in digestion. These very bacteria were also found in the Iceman, who lived 5300 years […]

With significant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a researcher at The University of Texas at Arlington is investigating fundamental biological processes that lead to fertility problems in humans.

First gene-edited babies may be at risk of early death

October 14th, 2019|0 Comments

A study that raised questions over the future health of the world’s first gene-edited babies has been retracted because of key errors that undermined its conclusion.

Studying Molecular Mechanisms Of Breast Cells Differentiation To Understand Breast Cancer Development

October 9th, 2019|0 Comments

Breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer, and some subtypes are among the most difficult of all cancers to treat. The involvement of many different cells makes targeting such tumors challenging.

Insights Into Mechanism Of Coordinated Calcium Ions Movement In T Cells

October 8th, 2019|0 Comments

Like entrance and exit doors on a building, a cell’s outer surface has doors — channels, pumps, and transporters that selectively control what molecules enter or exit. In the immune system, T cells possess unique […]
