Properties of stem cells that determine cell fate identified

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine have identified intrinsic cell properties that influence the fate of neural stem cells, affecting what type of brain cell they will form: neurons, astrocytes, or oligodendrocytes. This discovery could give scientists a new way to predict or control the fate of stem cells, improving their use in transplantation… Continue reading Properties of stem cells that determine cell fate identified

‘Chromosomal catastrophes’ in colorectal cancer

According to new research led by Queen Mary University of London.'Chromosomal catastrophes' have been found to occur along the evolutionary timeline of colorectal cancer development Dr William Cross,Queen Mary University of London said: "Our results change the way in which we understand how bowel cancers develop. Although the classical model of colorectal cancer development appears… Continue reading ‘Chromosomal catastrophes’ in colorectal cancer

Body’s own ‘bomb squad’ can help protect against brain tumors

Researchers from Peking University have discovered how a molecule can help prevent certain types of brain tumors by recognizing and 'disarming' harmful proteins that cause them.Their study in fruit flies could lead to a potential new treatment approach for brain tumors in future. Most multi-cellular organisms possess a one-way cell signaling pathway called Notch signaling,… Continue reading Body’s own ‘bomb squad’ can help protect against brain tumors

Study suggests new strategies for using cell metabolism to treat cancer

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have discovered that cell metabolism plays an important role in the ability of cells to start a survival program called autophagy, an unwanted side effect of some anti-cancer drugs that helps some tumor cells dodge treatment and eventually regrow into new tumors. These findings provides new insights for… Continue reading Study suggests new strategies for using cell metabolism to treat cancer

New genetic marker could help diagnose aggressive prostate cancer

Scientists from University of Turku have discovered a link between certain genetic mutations, the aggressiveness of prostate cancer, risk of developing the disease and poorer survival rates of patients. The gene, called ANO7, could play a vital role in improving diagnosis of prostate cancer patients. There is currently no clear way to diagnose aggressive prostate… Continue reading New genetic marker could help diagnose aggressive prostate cancer
