Molecular control of neurotransmitter linked to autism described

Many neurodevelopmental disorders such as epilepsy, schizophrenia, and autism have been linked to disruption of the key neurotransmitter GABA, but the underlying causes of the disruptions have been difficult to pinpoint. ...

Tumor resistance is promoted by anti-cancer protein

Lack of oxygen, or hypoxia, is a biological stressor that occurs under various conditions such as wound healing and stroke. To rescue the tissue, the body has innate mechanisms that "kick in" to make the cells of the hypoxic ...

Scientists discover molecular key to how cancer spreads

Yale researchers have discovered how metastasis, the spread of cancer cells throughout the body, is triggered on the molecular level, and have developed a tool with the potential to detect those triggers in patients with ...

Immune system boost could prevent lung cancer

Genomic differences related to the immune system may play a key role in the early development of lung cancer. That finding, published April 23, 2019, in Nature Communications, reveals potential for developing new therapeutics ...

Micro-control of liver metabolism

Researchers at TIFR have discovered molecular anticipation of feeding in the liver that is essential to ensure that the body, after fasting, adapts to use incoming nutrients upon re-feeding. Their findings, published in the ...

Hidden signs in cancer tissue

When scientists at ETH Zurich analysed very large amounts of genetic cancer data, they found previously unresearched molecular changes. These could help in developing new personalised cancer treatments.
