Mutant protein tackles DNA guardian to promote cancer development

How tumour development is driven by mutations in important gene in preventing cancer

09-Nov-2018

Melbourne scientists have discovered how tumour development is driven by mutations in the most important gene in preventing cancer, p53. The research revealed that in the early stages of cancer, mutant p53 'tackles' the normal p53 protein and blocks it from carrying out its protective role. As a ...

Repeated interferon stimulation creates innate immune memory

29-Oct-2018

The innate immune system may be able to be trained to react to viral infections more efficiently by repeated exposure to anti-viral signaling molecules. Mammalian cells seem to be able to memorize anti-viral stimulation at the level of DNA-packaging molecules, enabling faster and greater ...

Pathogens may evade immune response with metal-free enzyme required for DNA replication

23-Oct-2018

Some bacterial pathogens, including those that cause strep throat and pneumonia, are able to create the components necessary to replicate their DNA without the usually required metal ions. This process may allow infectious bacteria to replicate even when the host's immune system sequesters iron ...

Nanocages in the lab and in the computer

How DNA-based dendrimers transport nanoparticles

22-Oct-2018

How to create nanocages, i.e., robust and stable objects with regular voids and tunable properties? Short segments of DNA molecules are perfect candidates for the controllable design of novel complex structures. Physicists from the University of Vienna, the Technical University of Vienna, the ...

Precise, Highly Efficient Gene Repair

Researchers develop new CRISPR/Cas process using Japanese ricefish

31-Aug-2018

The molecular tool CRISPR/Cas allows introducing DNA double strand breaks into any gene of interest consequently resulting in stochastic mutations at the site of the target gene. However, precise gene repair through the application of a rescue construct suffers from limited efficiency. ...

Marking breast implants with tomato DNA to prevent counterfeiting

02-Aug-2018

For years, a French company sold breast implants made of cheap industrial silicone components. Headline news when it broke in 2010, this scandal is still keeping the courts busy today. Now, a research team at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP has come up with a method to ...

Less failure in CRIPSR gene editing

Biochemists discover cause of genome editing failures

13-Jul-2018

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago are the first to describe why CRISPR gene editing sometimes fails to work, and how the process can be made to be much more efficient. CRISPR is a gene-editing tool that allows scientists to cut out unwanted genes or genetic material from DNA, ...

The world's tiniest first responders

'Walking molecules' haul away damaged DNA to the cell's emergency room

22-Jun-2018

The cell has its own paramedic team and emergency room to aid and repair damaged DNA, a new USC Dornsife study reveals. The findings are timely, as scientists are delving into the potential of genome editing with the DNA-cutting enzyme, CRISPR-Cas9, to treat diseases or to advance scientific ...
