Latest Wnt signaling pathway Stories
Two previously unassociated proteins known to be overly active in a variety of cancers bind together to ignite and sustain malignant brain tumors.
Through the identification of a gene's impact on a signaling pathway, scientists at Children's National Medical Center continue to make progress in understanding the mechanics of a key brain developmental process: growth and repair of white matter, known as myelination.
No cure exists for frontotemporal dementia, which strikes between the ages of 40 and 64 and accounts for at least one in four cases of early-onset dementia.
All stem cells—regardless of their source—share the remarkable capability to replenish themselves by undergoing self-renewal. Yet, so far, efforts to grow and expand scarce hematopoietic (or blood-forming) stem cells in culture for therapeutic applications have been met with limited success.
If you think today's political rhetoric is overheated, imagine what goes on inside a vertebrate embryo.
A team of researchers from the University of Utah and Brigham Young University has developed a mouse model of focal dermal hypoplasia, a rare human birth defect that causes serious skin abnormalities and other medical problems.
According to a new study published in the journal Cell, Wnt signaling, already known to control many biological processes, between hair follicles and melanocyte stem cells can determine hair pigmentation.
Mice born to mothers who are fed a diet supplemented with B vitamins are less likely to develop intestinal tumors.
Scientists identify in the journal Nature a new molecular pathway used to suppress blood vessel branching in the developing retina â€“ a finding with potential therapeutic value for fighting diseases of the retina and a variety of cancers.
CINCINNATI, May 29, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scientists identify in the journal Nature a new molecular pathway used to suppress blood vessel branching in the developing retina - a finding with potential therapeutic value for fighting diseases of the retina and a variety of cancers.
