Researchers Identify Gene That Helps Prevent Brain Disease

University of California San Diego

Scientists have identified a gene that helps prevent the harmful buildup of proteins that can lead to neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. As published in Nature, the researchers found that the “Ankrd16” gene acts like a failsafe in proofreading and correcting errors to avoid the abnormal production of improper proteins.

New Blood Test Rapidly Detects Signs of Pancreatic Cancer

University of California San Diego

UC San Diego researchers have developed a test that can screen for pancreatic cancer in just a drop of blood. The test, which is at the proof-of-concept stage, provides results in under an hour. It's simple: apply a drop of blood on a small electronic chip, turn the current on, wait several minutes, add fluorescent labels and look at the results under a microscope. If a blood sample tests positive for pancreatic cancer, bright fluorescent circles will appear.

Scientists Find Missing Factor in Gene Activation

University of California San Diego

Scientists have unraveled a mystery on how genes are activated. Genes are blocked by structures known as nucleosomes, which package DNA. How do these roadblocks clear out to allow genes to turn on? Scientists have identified a key factor that unravels nucleosomes and clears the way. They say the finding is useful in understanding diseases such as cancer.

Supercomputer Simulations Reveal New “Achilles heel” in Dengue Virus

University of California San Diego

By stretching the amount of time proteins can be simulated in their natural state of wiggling and gyrating, a team of researchers at Colorado State University has identified a critical protein structure that could serve as a molecular Achilles heel able to inhibit the replication of dengue virus and potentially other flaviviruses such as West Nile and Zika virus.
