ZATT Protein Reverses DNA Damage Due to Chemotherapeutics
A new way that cells repair a potent and lethal DNA damage called DNA-protein cross-link (DPC), discovered. DPC’s are formed as a result of cancer treatment. A study led by the National Institute of Health found that a protein named ZATT, that can ...
Epigenetic Changes Increase Immune Tolerance to Tumor Cells
New study identifies a distinctive epigenetic event in immune cells that allow these cells to develop in the tumor microenvironment and make them tolerant to cancer cells. The study was conducted by the Chromatin and Disease Group from the Bellvitge ...
NASA Human Research Program (HRP) is working to protect the human body from radiation in space. Space radiation is dangerous and one of the major health risks for astronauts.
"Determining astronaut health consequences following radiation ...
The heredity substance DNA is the blueprint of our life. Like an instruction manual it contains all the information needed for cells and the body to function properly.
In the process, the DNA is always exposed to threats like UV light, ...
DNA Sensor System Developed to Measure Cancer-Relevant Enzyme Activity
The development of DNA sensor systems is of great importance for advances in medical science. Now another piece of the puzzle for the development of personalized medicine has been found with the results of a highly sensitive monitoring of ...
New DNA Based Blood Test Detects Early Stage Cancers
Failure of early
detection of cancers leads to high mortality and morbidity. New blood based
test detects early stage cancers with an overall success of 62%. Researchers claim
that smokers and women with ...
Breaks in DNA may Turn Immune Cells Against Cancer
Cancer starts when gene changes make one cell or a few cells begin to grow and multiply too much. This may cause a growth called a tumour. Cancer is essentially a disease of the cell replication cycle.
The goal of treating the disease is to ...
DNA sunscreen made from crystalline DNA films were designed to protect the skin
from UV rays.
The scientists who developed the sunscreen hypothesized that using DNA as a first line defense may reduce the risk of DNA damage ...
Epigenetic Dysregulation With Age in Normal Breast Tissue may Contribute to Breast Cancer Risk
Factors associated with a higher risk of breast cancer include increasing age, being overweight after menopause, alcohol intake, and family history. However, the underlying biologic mechanisms through which many of these recognized breast cancer ...
New Gene Mutation Associated With Defective DNA Repair and Fanconi Anemia
Low platelet count and unusually large red blood cells characterize a rare genetic disease by hematologic symptoms known as Fanconi anemia.
Mutations in nearly 20 genes have been identified as causative for Fanconi anemia, all of which encode ...
Programmable Peptide DNA Hybrids – Potential Game Changer In Tissue Engineering Technology
One of the greatest advancements in medicine in recent times has been the use of tissue engineering technologies for the therapy of a wide-range of diseases
Peptide-DNA (p-DNA) platform takes bio-engineering technology a step ...
EPICUP® Epigenetic Test Helps Clinical Management of Primary Tumor
Cancer of unknown primary means that cancer spread has been found in your body, but your doctors can't find where the cancer started. It is sometimes called unknown primary cancer or unknown primary tumor.
Finding the genetic origin of the ...
UV Radiation Increases Risk Of DNA Damage At Low Temperatures
DNA damage occurs when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and it could be one of the contributing factors in the global amphibian extinction crisis.
New research from Prof Craig Franklin and a team of researchers from The University of ...
Human Tetravalent DNA Vaccines Against Dengue Soon to be a Reality
New DNA vaccine candidate, pVAX1-D1ME, has been found successful in generating both humoral and cellular immune response in mice against dengue virus serotype D1.
Bivalent DNA vaccine generated an immunogenic response to ...
Working at Night Will Affect Your Body’s Ability to Repair DNA Damage
The presence of free radicals leads to DNA damage that occurs daily, which is considerably repaired during sleep at night.
Night shift workers disrupt this pattern leading to poor efficiency of the repair mechanism.
