University of North Carolina Health Care UNC researchers lay the groundwork for a new approach to brain cancer treatments and a better understanding of Parkinson's disease Researchers at the UNC School of Medicine have discovered that the protein PARC/CUL9 helps neurons and brain cancer cells override the biochemical mechanisms that lead to cell death in most other cells. In neurons, long-term survival allows for proper brain function as we age. In brain cancer cells, though, long-term...

Stem Cells Poised To Self-Destruct For The Good Of The Embryo

Embryonic stem cells – those revered cells that give rise to every cell type in the body – just got another badge of honor. If they suffer damage that makes them a threat to the developing embryo, they swiftly fall on their swords for the greater good, according to a study published online May 3, 2012 in the journal Molecular Cell. The finding offers a new glimpse into the private lives of stem cells that could help scientists use them to grow new neurons or other cells to...

This molecule, a tiny strand of nucleotides called microRNA-29 or miR-29, has already been shown to be in short supply in certain neurodegenerative illnesses such as Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease. Thus, the discovery could herald a new treatment to prompt brain cells to survive in the wake of neurodegeneration or acute injury like stroke. Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have discovered a molecule that can make brain cells resistant to programmed...
