When it comes to the circuits that make up the olfactory system, it seems that less is more. Much like the addition and elimination of extra synapses that helps fine-tune brain circuitry, the olfactory system continues to produce and remove neurons throughout life. Yet it is not entirely clear how and why some newborn neurons are preserved while others are eliminated. Now, new research published by Cell Press in the September 8 issue of the journal Neuron reveals that both olfactory...

A protein that appears to play a key role in the formation of lymphoma and other tumors by inhibiting a tumor-suppressing gene has been identified by a team of veterinary and human medicine researchers at the University of California, Davis. The researchers suggest that the newly identified protein may be a potential target for diagnosing and treating lymphoma in humans and animals. They will report their findings July 15 in the journal Genes & Development. "Results from this study...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ According to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, over 21,000 Americans died from lymphoma cancer last year. Lymphoma refers to a group of blood cancers that start in the lymphatic system, a network of lymph vessels and lymph nodes that play a vital role in the body's immune system. Researchers believe that a newly identified protein may be a potential target for diagnosing and treating lymphoma in humans and animals. The protein appears to play a key role in the...

Salk Institute scientists show how regulation of a key damage response protein can make the difference between survival and death after radiation Scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have found clues to the functioning of an important damage response protein in cells. The protein, p53, can cause cells to stop dividing or even to commit suicide when they show signs of DNA damage, and it is responsible for much of the tissue destruction that follows exposure to ionizing...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ A key for early diagnosis of cancer and personalized medicine is the order of genetic aberrations - deviations or irregularity - in individual cancers. Now, scientists have begun to reveal the order of mutations that lead to cancer. "We know that each cancer is a collection of genetic malfunctions," Raymond Cho, Ph.D., assistant clinical professor in the department of dermatology at the University of California, San Francisco, was quoted as saying. "We now know it...
