Turn In bama
Usually when government is involved they’re ginormous (and expensive) ironies – not the cutesy kind Alanis Morrissette once sang about. For example … the United States of America is (or is supposed to be) a free country and yet President Barack bama earlier this week asked Americans to drop dimes on other Americans by forwarding “fishy” communications related to the health care debate to a White House email address. Crazy huh?It gets even crazier when you consider that the. f course bama’s “Big Brother Is Watching You” approach to monitoring the health care debate isn’t really about health care – it’s about bama using snoops to identify his political detractors. Seriously have you been “flagged” yet? It’s a badge of honor if you ask us …Look people if the bama administration was serious about “correcting inaccuracies” in the health care debate it would start by admitting that its plan would eliminate choice raise costs and reduce the quality of care.
Potential Mechanisms To Protect Against Genetic Alterations …
Science Daily (press release)
"We’ve begun to identify the pathways that are very specific for preventing those types of rearrangements that involve DNA with duplications" said Richard Kolodner PhD professor of medicine and cellular and molecular medicine at the UC San Diego School of Medicine and the Moores UCSD Cancer Center and a member of the San Diego Branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR). Reporting online in advance of publication in the August 20 2009 issue of the journal Nature Kolodner and his team focused on a particular type of genetic change called a Gross Chromosomal Rearrangement (GCR) a large-scale change in the structures of chromosomes which house genes. Such changes might entail a sequence of genes being deleted or genetic material exchanging positions on chromosomes. According to Kolodner while the human genome contains many regions where rearrangements genetic duplications and other aberrations are more likely to occur – increasing the likelihood for chromosomal mistakes and genetic mutations – the genome is surprisingly stable. To try to better understand why the researchers examined GCR formation in chromosome regions in yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).
Scientists on track of cure for chronic itching
Louis is the most solid proof so far for a longstanding hypothesis in neuroscience that separate neural pathways are devoted to itch pain and other sensations. Zhou-Feng Chen the principal investigator said mice were made numb to itch stimuli by ablating a group of cells containing itch receptor the gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR). Among other things the gastrin-releasing peptide regulates various functions of the central nervous system The same mice responded normally to pain stimuli. In 2007 the same research team identified the GRPR as an “itch gene” responsible for relaying itch signals from the skin to the brain via a small population of nerve cells in the spinal cord.

UNC Group Decodes First HIV Genome
Most living things are made up of double-stranded DNA. Many viruses, such as HIV and polio, carry their genetic information on single-stranded RNA. Weeks worked closely with the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center as well as the School of Medicine, and the study used technology developed over the past five years in Weeks’ lab. The analysis of the HIV genome took about a year and a half to complete.

Immune cells cause more post-stroke brain damage-study
so the sooner the intervention (blocking of IL-23) happens the more protective it is for the brain" he said. The experts hope to apply the findings of the study published in Nature Medicine on people. "Most patients come to hospital within a day after a stroke so we need to develop a therapeutic method to prevent the expansion of infarction" Yoshimura said. "ur study is important because it provides a therapeutic target. We should start to treat patients one day after stroke happens (to block the infiltration of immune cells). " He added that an experimental antibody against interleukin-23 is currently in phase 2 clinical trial.
