How DNA damage turns immune cells against cancer

02-Aug-2017

Cancer is essentially a disease of the cell replication cycle. The goal of treating the disease is to permanently kill off the cells that replicate with abandon without any molecular brakes. Chemotherapy and radiation cause breaks in DNA, and eventually, death even in these out-of-control cells. ...

Why do BRCA1 mutations cause predominantly breast and ovarian cancer?

20-Jul-2017

The human body holds many mysteries, and function of the BRCA1 gene is among them. Women who inherit a faulty copy of BRCA1 have up to a 65 percent chance to develop breast cancer by age 70. They also have up to a 39 percent chance to develop ovarian cancer. Rong Li, Ph.D., and colleagues at The ...

The fork in the road to DNA repair

13-Jul-2017

The human body consists of trillions of cells, and within each are billions of DNA molecules. Strict maintenance of the molecules is essential to maintain a healthy cell and thus a healthy body. This maintenance is challenged by the daily bombardment of chemicals, UV light, radical oxgen and ...

How are long strands of DNA packed into tiny cells?

29-Jun-2017

Scientists are a step closer to understanding how DNA, the molecules that carry all of our genetic information, is squeezed into every cell in the body. How DNA is "packaged" in cells influences the activity of our genes and our risk for disease. Elucidating this process will help researchers in ...

New instruction manual to repair broken DNA uncovered

12-Jun-2017

Drexel University and Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have discovered how the Rad52 protein is a crucial player in RNA-dependent DNA repair. The results of their study reveal a surprising function of the homologous recombination protein Rad52. They also may help to identify new ...

Fish oil component helps damaged brain and retina cells survive

25-Apr-2017

A team of researchers led by Nicolas Bazan, MD, PhD, Boyd Professor and Director of the Neuroscience Center of Excellence at LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine, has shown for the first time that NDP1, a signaling molecule made from DHA, can trigger the production of a protective protein ...

Scientists identify how repair protein finds DNA damage

10-Oct-2016

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI) have demonstrated how Rad4, a protein involved in DNA repair, scans the DNA in a unique pattern of movement called "constrained motion" to efficiently find structural faults in DNA. ...

May repairs full of mistakes develop into cancer?

25-May-2016

A group of researchers at Osaka University found that if DNA damage response (DDR) does not work when DNA is damaged by radiation, proteins which should be removed remain instead, and a loss of genetic information can be incited, which, when repaired incorrectly, will lead to the tumor ...
