SCIENCE NEWS


Researchers Identify How Bone-Marrow Stem Cells Hold Their 'Breath' in Low-Oxygen Environments
Researchers have identified unique metabolic properties that allow a specific type of stem cell in the body to survive and replicate in low-oxygen environments. [Press release from UT Southwestern Medical Center discussing online prepublication in Cell Stem Cell]

New Discovery by University of Georgia Scientists Shows that Cancer-Causing Gene is also Crucial in the Development of Stem Cells  
A research team at the University of Georgia has shown for the first time that a gene called Myc may be far more important in the development and persistence of stem cells than was known before. [Press release from the University of Georgia discussing online prepublication in Cell Stem Cell]

Researchers Unveil “Toolbox of MiniPromoters” for Gene Research and Therapy
University of British Columbia researchers have led the development of a new “toolbox of MiniPromoters” for research and future therapies on brain, spinal cord and eye function. [Press release from The University of British Columbia discussing online prepublication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA]

Applying Stem Cell Technology to Liver Diseases
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) hold promise for cell replacement therapy and modeling human disease. Two independent research groups — at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom, and the University of California San Francisco — have now shown that both possibilities are true for iPS cell-derived liver cells. [Press release from EurekAlert! discussing online prepublication in the Journal of Clinical Investigation]

First Genetic Link to Common Migraine Exposed
A world-wide collaboration of researchers has identified the first-ever genetic risk factor associated with common types of migraine. [Press release from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute discussing online prepublication in Nature Genetics]

Bone Marrow Cells Can Help in Heart Failure: Study
Patients with chronic heart failure given injections of their own bone marrow stem cells have better heart function and live longer, German researchers said. [Reuters Press Release]

Transplanting Gut Microbes to Treat Disease
Earlier this summer, scientists reported the success of an unusual medical transplant; a woman with a life-threatening Clostridium difficile infection was treated, and apparently cured, with an injection of some of her healthy husband's gut bacteria. Researchers are now exploring the effects of this type of transplant in greater detail. They hope to eventually treat a wide range of ailments–from bowel diseases to obesity, diabetes to depression–by manipulating the bacteria that live in the human gut. [Press release from MIT Technology Review discussing online prepublication in Genome Research]

U-M Researchers Receive Largest Single Collection of Psoriasis DNA Samples
Millions of Americans struggling with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are one step closer to a cure with the release of the first National Psoriasis Victor Henschel BioBank DNA samples for use in research at the University of Michigan Health System; research that hopes to uncover the unknowns about the genetics of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. [University of Michigan Health System Press Release]

Live Imaging Puts New Light on Stem Cell Division
A long-held assumption about asymmetrical division of stem cells has cracked. Researchers report that the mitotic spindle does not act alone — that cortical proteins help to position a cleavage furrow in the right location. A three-member team focused on Drosophila neural stem cells, long known for dividing asymmetrically. [Press release from the University of Oregon discussing online prepublication in Nature]

Insulin Resistance, Type 2 Diabetes Linked to Plaques Associated With Alzheimer's Disease
People with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes appear to be at an increased risk of developing plaques in the brain that are associated with Alzheimer's disease, according to new research. [Press release from ScienceDaily discussing online prepublication in Neurology]

New Study Sheds Light on Painkilling System in Brain
Repeatedly boosting brain levels of one natural painkiller soon shuts down the brain cell receptors that respond to it, so that the painkilling effect is lost, according to a surprising new study. [Press release from The Scripps Research Institute discussing online prepublication in Nature Neuroscience]

Light at Night and Cancer
The researchers’ hypothesis was that Light at Night (LAN) harms production of melatonin, a hormone that is released from the pineal gland during the dark part of the 24h cycle and which is linked to the body’s cyclical night-day activity and seasonality. When this hormone is suppressed, the occurrence of cancer rises. The current study set out to establish or refute this hypothesis. [University of Haifa Press Release]

New TB Diagnostic Proves Effective, Expedient, Study Finds
A molecular test designed to easily diagnose tuberculosis (TB) and detect a drug-resistant form of the bacterium that causes TB can provide much more specific, sensitive and rapid results than currently available TB diagnostics, according to a new study. [Press release from the National Institutes of Health discussing online prepublication in the New England Journal of Medicine]

Third Generation Map of Human Genetic Variation Published 
An international consortium published a third-generation map of human genetic variation, called the HapMap, which includes data from an additional seven global populations, increasing the total number to 11 populations. The improved resolution will help researchers interpret current genome studies aimed at finding common and rarer genetic variants associated with complex diseases. [Press release from the National Institutes of Health discussing online prepublication in Nature

Explaining “How & Why” Cancer Cells Eat Us Alive
Four key studies now propose a new theory about how cancer cells grow and survive, allowing researchers to design better diagnostics and therapies to target high-risk cancer patients. [Press release from Newswise discussing online prepublications in Cell Cycle]

Study Points to Key Genetic Driver of Severe Asthma
Scientists have identified a genetic basis for determining the severity of allergic asthma in experimental models of the disease. The study may help in the search for future therapeutic strategies to fight a growing medical problem that currently lacks effective treatments. [Press release from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center discussing online prepublication in Nature Immunology]

A Spindle-Independent Cleavage Furrow Positioning Pathway
