Identify Driver Genes Important for Cancer Progression

The researches find that the mutations (hotspot mutations) in cancer tumors are the important mutations (driver mutations) that promoted cancer progression. Therefore A new University of California, Irvine-led study indicates this is not always true. Methods for identifying driver genes important to cancer progression have relied on the gold standard of recurrence across patients. Seeing…

Researchers Find New Mutation In Leptin Gene

The global obesity epidemic is so far-reaching it now has an overarching name: globesity. Texas Biomed Staff Scientist Raul Bastarrachea, M.D., is part of a team that discover a new mutation; in the gene that regulates the key hormone suppressing hunger called leptin. This new mutation could help researchers understand why people develop excess of…

Two Genes Implicated in Development of Prostate Enlargement

The researches find that the two genes involved in cell signaling that they suspect may play a role in the condition’s development. One, CXCL13, codes for a protein involved in immune cell recruitment; but which Pollack said makes sense because prostate enlargement involves inflammation. The two genes involved The other gene, BMP5, codes for a…
