Mutant Gene Found to Fuel Cancer-Promoting Effects of Inflammation

Biologists have uncovered a mechanism linking a human gene’s function to chronic inflammation and cancer. They discovered that “mutant p53” taps the body’s immune response system to fuel pro-inflammatory responses that increase cancer growth.

Cool Roofs Have Water Saving Benefits Too

coolroofsfig6.png

The energy and climate benefits of cool roofs have been well established: By reflecting rather than absorbing the sun’s energy, light-colored roofs keep buildings, cities, and even the entire planet cooler. Now a new study by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has found that cool roofs can also save water by reducing how much is needed for urban irrigation.

Extreme Light Trapping

Shawn-Yu Lin, professor of physics, applied physics, and astronomy at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has built a nanostructure whose crystal lattice bends light as it enters the material and directs it in a path parallel to the surface, known as “parallel to interface refraction.”

New Findings Help Explain How Usher Syndrome Affects Vision and Hearing

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center utilized their Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB) grants to make progress in characterizing the genetic and physiologic components of Usher syndrome—the most common cause of deaf-blindness.

Elucidating the Role of Circulating Nutrients that Fuel Tumor Growth

RabinowitzWhite.jpg

Tumors acquire nutrition necessary for growth and survival from the body of the patient in which they reside. Although these nutrients are predominantly provided by the circulating blood supply, the knowledge of how they are used by tumors is incomplete. Identifying tumor nutrients and how they are used may reveal novel approaches to cancer therapy. Research from investigators at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and Princeton University finds that circulating lactate rather than glucose is the prominent metabolic fuel source for tumors and most normal tissues.
