Tumor "Mutational Signatures" Predict Treatment Response

Researchers have found that so-called “mutational signatures” – that reflect a collection of mutations found across the entire genome of a tumor – can predict the activity of various drugs applied to cancer cells from several tumor types.

Sugary Protein May Be Gumming Up Brain Cleaning in Alzheimer's Disease

In a bit of “reverse engineering” research using brain tissues from five people who died with Alzheimer’s disease, researchers say they discovered that a special sugar molecule could play a key role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

HIV Drug Could Enhance How the Brain Links Memories

Increased expression of the CCR5 gene in the brain is associated with poor memory linking, but the drug used to treat HIV infection has been shown to suppress CCR5 and improve memory linking in older mice.

New Theory Looks at How Biodiversity Affects Interspecies Interaction

The term biodiversity invites images of lush rainforests, dynamic estuaries, and other biomes where a kaleidoscope of species interact within their communities. Now a new study has proposed a theory of how biodiversity affects the amount of interspecies interaction in a community.
