Researchers identify protein linked to negative effects of senescence

Researchers identify protein linked to negative effects of senescence

Cellular senescence is a state in which normal healthy cells do not have the ability to divide. Senescence can occur when cancer-causing genes are activated in normal cells or when chemotherapy is used on cancer cells. [More]
Researchers propose new strategy to control malaria by driving mosquito evolution

Researchers propose new strategy to control malaria by driving mosquito evolution

One of the frustrations of fighting malaria is that mosquitoes evolve resistance to the insecticides used to kill them. [More]
Scientists discover new option for treating malignant pleural mesothelioma

Scientists discover new option for treating malignant pleural mesothelioma

Researchers at the Comprehensive Cancer Center of MedUni Vienna and Vienna General Hospital have discovered a new option for treating malignant pleural mesothelioma. [More]
Study provides insights into how species adapt to changing environments over many generations

Study provides insights into how species adapt to changing environments over many generations

Research led by the European Bioinformatics Institute and the University of Washington has shown that the biological diversity needed for evolution can be generated by changes in protein modifications. [More]
Researchers develop mouse model to investigate behavioral effects of eating disorder gene

Researchers develop mouse model to investigate behavioral effects of eating disorder gene

Giving mice a gene mutation linked to eating disorders in people causes feeding and behavior abnormalities similar to symptoms often seen in patients with eating disorders. Only female mice are affected by the gene mutation, and some of the abnormalities in the female mice depend on whether they are housed alone or together with other mice. [More]
