What Keeps Stem Cells in Their Undifferentiated State?

COOK_MATSON_differentiatingstemcells_edited.jpg

A special cluster of proteins helps unwind DNA during cell division and plays a key role in keeping stem cells in their immature state. This UNC study also points to a better understanding of how cancer cells manage to sustain rapid cell division without triggering cell death.

1 in 5 Young Colon Cancer Patients Have Genetic Link

A new study indicates a benefit for all young colon cancer patients to have genetic testing. But with more than half exhibiting no family history, will insurers cover the tests? As doctors grapple with increasing rates of colorectal cancers in young people, new research from the University of Michigan may offer some insight into how the disease developed and how to prevent further cancers.

Immunotherapy, Gene Editing Advances Extend to Type 1 Diabetes

Advances in engineering T cells to treat cancer are paving the way for new immunotherapies targeted at autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes. Now, researchers are also investigating therapies that reprogram T cells to “turn down” an immune response, which may hold promise for curing type 1 diabetes, as well as a number of diseases where overactive T cells attack a person’s healthy cells and organs.

A teeny, tiny worm and a $1.8 million National Institutes of Health grant may help a Kansas State University researcher understand how the smallest molecules can have big effects on gene expression. Using microscopic worms as a model system, Anna Zinovyeva, assistant professor in the Division of Biology, is researching how small bits of non-coding RNA, called microRNAs, decrease gene activity in animals.

Faster, More Accurate Cancer Detection Using Nanoparticles, Rutgers-Led Study Finds

Cancerforrutgerstodaycover31.jpg

Using light-emitting nanoparticles, Rutgers University-New Brunswick scientists have invented a highly effective method to detect tiny tumors and track their spread, potentially leading to earlier cancer detection and more precise treatment. The technology, announced today, could improve patient cure rates and survival times.
