Researchers identify noncoding RNA crucial for stem cell suppression in the brain.

A research team at UC San Francisco has discovered an RNA molecule called Pnky that can be manipulated to increase the production of neurons from neural stem cells.  The opensource … Continue Reading Researchers identify noncoding RNA crucial for stem cell suppression in the brain.

Researchers develop first individualised precise medical vaccine for ovarian cancer.

Researchers at the University of Connecticut have found a new way to identify protein mutations in cancer cells. The novel method is being used to develop precision medical vaccines to treat … Continue Reading Researchers develop first individualised precise medical vaccine for ovarian cancer.

Researchers begin to map function and expression of isomiRs of microRNA.

Researchers have encountered variants or isoforms in microRNAs (miRNAs) before, but assumed that these variants were accidental byproducts. A recent study from Thomas Jefferson University shows that certain so called … Continue Reading Researchers begin to map function and expression of isomiRs of microRNA.

Gene that controls nerve conduction velocity linked to multiple sclerosis.

A new study from the University of Lubeck identifies a novel gene that controls nerve conduction velocity. Investigators report that even minor reductions in conduction velocity may aggravate disease in multiple … Continue Reading Gene that controls nerve conduction velocity linked to multiple sclerosis.

FDA approves world’s first non-invasive DNA screening test for colorectal cancer.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Cologuard, the first stool-based colorectal screening test that detects the presence of red blood cells and DNA mutations that may indicate the … Continue Reading FDA approves world’s first non-invasive DNA screening test for colorectal cancer.
