Hedgehog signaling proteins keep cancer stem cells alive

Added: 20.01.2018 10:33 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Scientists have discovered that the survival of cancer stem cells is dependent on the 'Hedgehog signaling pathway'. Targeting this pathway had previously shown no effect on the growth of colorectal cancer. Now, scientists have demonstrated that using different drugs to target a specific aspect of the pathway may yield better treatment outcomes for patients.

#zrodlo

In a scientific first, a research team led by Gladstone Institutes scientists turned mouse skin cells into so-called induced pluripotent stem cells by activating a specific gene using CRISPR technology. The results appear in the journal Cell Stem Cell. Pluripotent stem cells can be turned into virtually any cell type in the body. As a [...]

How plants see light

Added: 19.01.2018 20:42 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

The proteins PCH1 and PCHL help plants adapt to their surroundings. Plants react sensitively to changes in their surroundings and possess the ability to adapt to them. They use the photoreceptor protein phytochrome B to see light and then regulate processes such as seed germination, seedling development, longitudinal growth and flower formation.

Factor that doubles the risk of death from breast cancer identified

Added: 19.01.2018 20:42 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Researchers have discovered that the risk of death from breast cancer is twice as high for patients with high heterogeneity of the estrogen receptor within the same tumor as compared to patients with low heterogeneity. The study shows that the higher risk of death is independent of other known tumor markers and also holds true for Luminal A breast cancer.

#zrodlo

A new study has examined how light pollution lures birds into urban areas during fall migration, a trend that poses risk for the fowl that often fly into buildings and has increased with the addition of brighter LED lights. The researchers were interested in seeing what factors shape the birds' distributions and why they occur in certain areas.

Radioactivity from oil and gas wastewater persists in Pennsylvania stream sediments

Added: 19.01.2018 20:00 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

More than seven years after Pennsylvania officials requested that the disposal of radium-laden fracking wastewater into surface waters be restricted, a new study finds that high levels of radioactivity persist in stream sediments at three disposal sites. Radioactivity at these sites is 650 times higher than at unaffected sites upstream. The contamination comes from conventional, or non-fracked, oil and gas wastewater, which, under current state regulations, can still be treated and discharged into streams.

Cystic fibrosis bacterial burden begins during first years of life

Added: 19.01.2018 19:49 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Cystic fibrosis shortens life by making the lungs prone to repeated bacterial infections and inflammation. Researchers have now shown for the first time that the lungs' bacterial population changes in the first few years of life as respiratory infections and inflammation set in. This research offers a way to predict the onset of lung disease in children with CF and suggests a larger role for preventive therapies, such as hypertonic saline.
