Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have discovered what appears to be a potent stimulator of new bone growth.
A team of scientists at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans has discovered the structure of the active form of E6-associated protein (E6AP), an enzyme that acts as a master regulator in the body.
Regenerative medicine research could lead to new ways to counter baldness and receding hairlines using stem cells.
A new study published 26th November in the open access journal PLOS Biology, identifies a new target in the search for therapeutic interventions for Huntington's disease – a devastating late-onset neurodegenerative disorder.
Pure MHC, LLC, a provider of MHC-based diagnostics and therapeutics, and Catalent Pharma Solutions, the global leader in drug development solutions and advanced delivery technologies for pharmaceutical,
A genetic defect that profoundly affects speech in humans also disrupts the ability of songbirds to sing effective courtship tunes.
A new study from researchers at the University of Pennsylvania has found a genetic mutation making certain people more sensitive to the taste of a bitter compound could have been beneficial for certain human populations in Africa, resulting in the mutation being passed on from generation to generation.
A new study by Weill Cornell Medical College scientists reveals a mechanism through which the expression of genes is controlled -- a finding that highlights genetic mutations that can impair the timing of gene expression.

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...
