Latest DNA repair Stories
-- Findings could lead to new therapies for breast, ovarian, and other cancers NEW YORK, Feb.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct.
Scientists at Washington State University have identified a crucial step in DNA repair that could lead to targeted gene therapy for hereditary diseases such as “children of the moon” and a common form of colon cancer.
Twelve years ago, UNC School of Medicine researcher Brian Strahl, PhD, found that a protein called Set2 plays a role in how yeast genes are expressed – specifically how DNA gets transcribed into messenger RNA.
DNA damage repair is highly complex. UZH researchers have now discovered another piece in the puzzle for the removal of extremely dangerous DNA lesions.
Each time a human cell divides, it must first make a copy of its 46 chromosomes to serve as an instruction manual for the new cell.
An international team led by researchers at UC Davis has shown that the cyclin B1/Cdk1 protein complex, which plays a key role in cell division, also boosts the mitochondrial activity to power that process.
Today we know that women carrying BCRA1 and BCRA2 gene mutations have a 43% to 88% risk of developing from breast cancer before the age of 70.
Life aboard the International Space Station (ISS) may seem like a carefree existence, but a wealth of evidence has proven otherwise. Years of research shows that the effects of microgravity wreaks havoc on the human body.
The DNA health monitoring citizen science campaign launched by Exogen Biotechnology, Inc. exceeded its crowdfunding goal on Indiegogo by raising over $55,000 from US donors within two weeks.
