Researchers Inhibit Cancer Metastases via Novel Steps

Case Western Reserve University

In one of the first successes of its kind, researchers have inhibited the spreading of cancer cells from one part of the body to another. In doing so, they relied on a new model of how cancer metastasizes that emphasizes epigenetics, which examines how genes are turned on and off.

Surprise Finding Points to DNA’s Role in Shaping Cells

University of California San Diego

Scientists have found that DNA executes an unexpected architectural role in shaping the cells of bacteria. Studying bacteria, the researchers used an array of experiments and technologies to reveal that DNA, beyond serving to encode genetic information, also “pumps up” bacterial cells.

Gene Therapy Researchers Find a Viral Barcode to Cross the Blood-Brain Barrier

University of North Carolina Health Care System

UNC School of Medicine researchers discovered a structure on viruses that makes them better at crossing from the bloodstream into the brain – a key factor for administering gene therapies at lower doses for treating brain and spinal disorders. Experiments also showed decreased liver toxicity.
