Blood Stem Cells: The HLF Gene Protects Them

"The study confirms several previous studies that show the HLF gene's significance in blood formation", says Mattias Magnusson who led the new study. The results can have important applications in bone marrow transplants, as well as contribute to our knowledge of how leukemia develops.

Malaria Parasite Protects Genetic Material for Trip from Mosquitoes to Host

The parasite that causes malaria has two specialized proteins that protect its messenger RNAs — genetic material that encodes for proteins — until the parasite takes up residence in a new mosquito or a human host. A new study, published in the journal mSphere, describes the two proteins and reveals an additional role that one may play to facilitate RNA-based interactions between the parasite, its mosquito vector, and its human host.

Old World Monkeys could be Potential Key to Stop the Progression of Rheumatoid Arthritis

In the quest for a new and more effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC looked to a primate. It was a particular peptide only found in Old World monkeys, called θ-defensin 1 (RTD-1), that the researchers believed had the potential to stop or even reverse the progression of rheumatoid arthritis. The promising results of their study were published in PLOS ONE.

DFS Assure Quality Control of Food Grains

The forensic science experts, generally associated with an analysis of evidence on crime scenes have been roped in by Gujarat State Civil Supplies Corporation (GSCSC) Ltd to assure quality control of the food grains meant for purposes such as midday meal scheme and public distribution system.

NASA Explains Space Radiation; Study Reveals

In this study, researchers established NASA elucidates Space radiation, the Charged particles may be small, but they matter to astronauts. NASA's Human Research Program (HRP) is investigating these particles to solve one of its biggest challenges for a human journey to Mars: space radiation and its effects on the human body
