How a high-fat diet enhances the spread of cancer
As well as discovering a protein that is key to cancer metastasis, researchers have found that dietary fat works with this protein to worsen cancer spread. (Medical News Today)

Controlling gene activity in human development
Researchers at the Babraham Institute have revealed a new understanding of the molecular switches that control gene activity in human embryonic stem cells. (Medical News Today)

Key regulator of bone development identified
Loss of a key protein leads to defects in skeletal development including reduced bone density and a shortening of the fingers and toes - a condition known as brachydactyly. (Medical News Today)

Researchers uncover protein-based 'cancer signature'
A research team at the University of Basel's Biozentrum has investigated the expression of ribosomal proteins in a wide range of human tissues including tumors and discovered a cancer type specific... (Medical News Today)

VIB scientists show NLRP2 protein's role in maintaining fertility later in life
Led by Prof. Mohamed Lamkanfi (VIB-Ghent University), researchers have demonstrated in animal models that a protein called NLRP2 plays an important role in early embryogenesis, the process of cell... (Medical News Today)

Chemotherapy drug may trigger new egg production in women
Small study finds more young eggs in ovaries of women receiving drugs for treating Hodgkin's lymphoma, compared with differently treated or healthy women. (Medical News Today)

Map of drugs reveals uncharted waters in search for new treatments
Scientists have created a map of all 1,578 licensed drugs and their mechanisms of action - as a means of identifying 'uncharted waters' in the search for future treatments. (Medical News Today)

Uncovering a 'smoking gun' in age-related disease
Aging is a key risk factor for a variety of devastating, chronic diseases, yet the biological factors that influence when and how rapidly cells deteriorate over time remain largely unknown. (Medical News Today)

Cancer: Molecular insights into anti-tumor effects of diabetes drug
Study sheds new light at molecular level on how widely prescribed diabetes drug metformin protects epithelial barriers against stress and prevents tumors. (Medical News Today)

Bone loss may be linked to Alzheimer's disease
A study in a mouse model of Alzheimer's finds a potential link between early bone loss and degeneration in an area of the brain that makes serotonin. (Medical News Today)

Enzyme research provides a new picture of depression
Despite the fact that more than four percent of the world's population suffer from depression, and even though approximately 1,500 individuals commit suicide each year in Sweden, the understanding... (Medical News Today)

Huntington's disease affects muscle as well as brain
After studying cell processes in mice, researchers suggest Huntington’s disease involves defects in muscle maturation as well as death of brain cells. (Medical News Today)

Our closest worm kin regrow body parts, raising hopes of regeneration in humans
What if humans could regrow an amputated arm or leg, or completely restore nervous system function after a spinal cord injury? (Medical News Today)

Researchers discover a new regulator of mitochondria in invasive cancer growth
Cancer cells' ability to invade and spread is what makes them deadly. In a recent study published in the journal Current Biology, Texas A&M College of Medicine researchers demonstrate that... (Medical News Today)

Self-deliverable GapmeR gene silencers designed to hit molecular targets in human cells
A team of researchers led by Assistant Professor Navin Kumar Verma at Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (LKCMedicine) has developed a new method of gene... (Medical News Today)

Tissue damage is key for cell reprogramming
Cell reprogramming does not happen exactly as we thought. In the pages of the journal Science, a team from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) has shown that tissue damage is a... (Medical News Today)

Gut microbes switch host genes on and off under influence of diet
New study of mice shows gut microbes alter gene expression - depending on diet - with a Western diet preventing many of the changes of a plant-rich one. (Medical News Today)

Changes in the diet affect epigenetics via the microbiota
You are what you eat, the old saying goes, but why is that so? Researchers have known for some time that diet affects the balance of microbes in our bodies, but how that translates into an effect... (Medical News Today)

Cancer cells 'talk' to their environment, and it talks back
Interactions between an animal cell and its environment, a fibrous network called the extracellular matrix, play a critical role in cell function, including growth and migration. (Medical News Today)

Missed connections: As people age, memory-related brain activity loses cohesion
Groups of brain regions that synchronize their activity during memory tasks become smaller and more numerous as people age, according to a study published in PLOS Computational Biology. (Medical News Today)

Macular degeneration: Study sheds light on Alzheimer's proteins in retina
Study reveals new insights into the molecular mechanisms of beta-amyloid buildup - a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease - in the retina of people with AMD. (Medical News Today)

Greater efforts are needed to encourage patients to report adverse drug reactions
In a review of published studies addressing patients' perceptions and factors influencing their reporting of adverse drug reactions, most patients were not aware of reporting systems and others... (Medical News Today)

Mechanism of protective protein identified in fight against harmful bacteria
Research from the University of Southampton, in collaboration with colleagues at A*STAR in Singapore, has provided new understanding of a protein which plays an important role in protecting... (Medical News Today)

Protein points cells in the right direction for migrations in developing tissues
The stretching and growth of skin tissue during embryonic development in animals requires a novel signaling pathway involving CDC-42 GTPase to direct the movement of cells during migrations, report... (Medical News Today)

Zika: Researchers create powerful tool for vaccine, antiviral development
By stripping the Zika virus of structural genes, researchers create versions to help develop vaccines and therapeutics without using infectious virus. (Medical News Today)
