Newswise: Hackensack Meridian Health Center for Discovery and Innovation to Host Genomic Medicine Symposium

Hackensack Meridian Health Center for Discovery and Innovation to Host Genomic Medicine Symposium

Hackensack Meridian Health

The Symposium on February 19 will feature a variety of clinical disorders in which prevention, screening, and treatment can be informed through genomic and epigenomic data.

Newswise: Catch and Release: MTU Biochemists Purify Proteins with a Fishing Technique

Catch and Release: MTU Biochemists Purify Proteins with a Fishing Technique

Michigan Technological University

Protein purification is a multibillion-dollar industry. A new purification process developed by Michigan Tech biochemists, called capture and release (CaRe), is a lot like catch and release fishing. It comes down to the picking the right lure to bait a specific protein and CaRe speeds up protein purification while also lowering costs.

Newswise: Cancer study may accidentally help researchers create usable blood stem cells

Cancer study may accidentally help researchers create usable blood stem cells

University of Colorado Cancer Center

University of Colorado Cancer Center study shows healthy form of the leukemia-causing gene MLL may push pluripotent stem cells (which have proven difficult to use in human patients) to become durable hematopoietic stem cells (which are usable in patients, but have until now been impossible to make).

Engineered Mosquitoes Cannot Be Infected with or Transmit Any Dengue Virus

PLOS

Genetically engineered mosquitoes are resistant to multiple types of dengue virus (DENV), according to a study published January 16 in the open-access journal PLOS Pathogens by Prasad Paradkar of the Australian Animal Health Laboratory, and Omar Akbari of the University of California, San Diego, and colleagues. As noted by the authors, this is the first engineered approach that targets all types of DENV, which is crucial for effective disease suppression.

Heart Cell Research Leads to Discovery That May Lead to Unreliable Data

American Physiological Society (APS)

Researchers studying proteins in heart cells have unexpectedly discovered that a common microscopy fluorescent protein carries reversible photobleaching properties. This phenomenon may lead to inaccurate or unreliable data.

Zika Virus’ Key into Brain Cells ID’d, Leveraged to Block Infection and Kill Cancer Cells

University of California San Diego Health

Two different UC San Diego research teams identified the same molecule — αvβ5 integrin — as Zika virus’ key to brain cell entry. They found ways to take advantage of the integrin to both block Zika virus from infecting cells and turn it into something good: a way to shrink brain cancer stem cells.

Special delivery: McMaster physicists design ‘super-human’ red blood cells to deliver drugs to specific targets within the body

McMaster University

A team of physicists from McMaster University has developed a process to modify red blood cells so they can be used to distribute drugs throughout the body, which could specifically target infections or treat catastrophic diseases such as cancer or Alzheimer’s.
