Latest Histone H3 Stories
A decade ago, gene expression seemed so straightforward: genes were either switched on or off.
Most cancer treatments are blunt. In an attempt to eradicate tumors, oncologists often turn to radiation or chemotherapy, which can damage healthy tissue along with the cancerous growths.
Over the last two decades, scientists have come to understand that the genetic code held within DNA represents only part of the blueprint of life.
Researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center and colleagues at the University of South Florida have discovered a mechanism that explains how some cancer cells “hijack” a biological process to potentially activate cell growth and the survival of cancer gene expression.
When stretched out, the genome of a single human cell can reach six feet.
A team of researchers led by scientists at The Rockefeller University has identified a novel mechanism by which influenza interferes with antiviral host response.
Mayo Clinic researchers have gained insights into the function of a member of a family of specialized proteins called histone chaperones.
Researchers studying a rare, lethal childhood tumor of the brainstem discovered that nearly 80 percent of the tumors have mutations in genes not previously tied to cancer.
Oryzon a Biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery of biomarkers and development of novel therapeutics and diagnostics announced today that Dr.
To understand the emerging science of epigeneticsâ€”a field that describes how genes may be regulated without altering the underlying DNA itselfâ€”scientists are deciphering the many ways in which enzymes act on the proteins surrounding DNA within cells.
