Two separate, recently published studies are shedding new light on how humans developed the ability to produce and understand speech, and what factors contribute to the development of language during infancy.
Sea lamprey studies show remarkably conserved gene expression patterns in jawless versus jawed vertebrates.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Study Shows Ability to Create Therapeutics Targeting Critical MYC Regulator for Potential Treatment of Cancer SAN DIEGO, Aug.
University of Delaware researchers have identified a protein, hiding in plain sight, that acts like a bodyguard to help protect and stabilize another key protein, that when unstable, is involved in Crohn’s disease.

Some viruses can hide in our bodies for decades.
With the introduction of a Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD), oncology therapies have become a target of related discussion and focus.
The Herpesviridae, a large family of DNA viruses, causes disease in animals and humans. Members of this family are known as herpesviruses. They all share a common structure where they are composed of relatively large double-stranded, linear DNA genomes encoding 100-200 genes encased within an icosahedral protein cage called the capsid. The whole particle is known as a virion. They are all nuclear-replicating. When a viral particle contacts a cell with specific types of receptor molecules...
