Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Men and women differ in plenty of obvious ways, and scientists have long known that genetic differences buried deep within our DNA underlie these distinctions. In the past, most research has focused on understanding how the genes that encode proteins act as sex determinants. But Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) scientists have found that a subset of very small genes encoding short RNA molecules, called microRNAs (miRNAs), also play a key role in...

University of Colorado Cancer Center Your genes are blueprints for proteins, and molecules called microRNA can help to determine how often these genetic blueprints are manufactured into proteins. Researchers often ask what microRNA regulates a gene related to disease. Or what gene is regulated by a microRNA found in sick patients? The answers to these questions could help doctors and researchers manipulate protein levels in the body that cause disease, especially cancer. A University of...

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Scientists identify a gene that controls the timing of precisely ordered events during maturation Closely related organisms share most of their genes, but these similarities belie major differences in behavior, intelligence, and physical appearance. For example, we share nearly 99% of our genes with chimps, our closest relatives on the great "tree of life." Still, the differences between the two species are unmistakable. If not just genes, what else...

Rockefeller University Unexpected links to Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease also seen Using an innovative tool that captures heretofore hidden ways that cells are regulated, scientists at Rockefeller University have identified a protein that makes breast cancer cells more likely to metastasize. What's more, the protein appears to trigger cancer's spread in part by blocking two other proteins that are normally linked to neurodegeneration, a finding that suggests these two...

European League Against Rheumatism Early detection could help prevent severe disease in the most common form of arthritis The results of a study presented today at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress (EULAR 2014) identify a correlation between the presence of biomarkers in the blood, known as micro RNAs (miRNAs), and the development of severe osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee or hip joint. The findings suggest that miRNAs may be used as biomarkers to predict severe OA...

Researchers have pinpointed four key biomarkers they say could lead to earlier and more accurate diagnosis of pleural mesothelioma. Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) June 27, 2014 Scientists at Copenhagen University in Denmark say tiny cell components called microRNAs could help doctors distinguish malignant pleural mesothelioma from non-cancerous conditions and start treatment earlier. Surviving Mesothelioma has just posted an article on this important discovery. Click here to read it now. Researchers...
