Apoptosis in Cancer

Apoptosis is an important mechanism in cancer. By evading apoptosis, tumors can continue to grow without regulation and metastasize systemically. Many therapies are evaluating the use of pro-apoptotic activation to eliminate cancer growth. Here is the latest research on apoptosis in cancer.

MAPK Pathway

MAPK pathway is a complex signaling pathway that regulates transcription, translation, cell cycle, and proliferation. Targeting this pathway has long been considered a promising strategy for cancer therapy. Here is the latest research on this pathway.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Viral Protein Structures

Viral proteins are used for assembly and for assisting in infection and replication in the host. The structure of these viral proteins depends on their function. Capsid proteins surround the virus and can take on different forms depending the mechanism of entry. Here is the latest research on viral protein structures.

Glial Cell Differentiation

Glial cells play an essential role in maintaining brain homeostasis, forming myelin, and providing support and protection for neurons. Follow new research into glia cell differentiation with this feed.

Spinal Cord Neoplasms

Spinal cord neoplasms affect the spinal cord and arise from either within the spinal cord or from extramedullary structures that surround the spinal cord. The cancer can arise from different cell types such as the meninges surrounding the spinal cord, glial or nerve cells within the CNS. Here is the latest research on spinal cord neoplasms.

Ataxias

Ataxia is a neurological condition characterized by lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements including loss of coordination, balance, and speech. Discover the latest research on ataxia here.

G-Protein-Coupled Receptors

G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), the largest family of integral membrane proteins, participate in the regulation of many physiological functions and are the targets of approximately 30% of currently marketed drugs. Here is the latest research.

Glioblastoma Multiforme

Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is a tumor that develops from astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that underlie GBM and associated therapeutic approaches.

Cerebellar Neoplasms

Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.

Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors occur in the gastrointestinal tract, often in the stomach or the small intestines. Here is the latest research on gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

Organization of DNA Replication

DNA replication requires a concerted effort of numerous proteins and replication units to organize the densely packed DNA within the nucleus and is a highly regulated process. Discover the latest research on Organization of DNA Replication here.

Oncoviral Profiles

Viral infections have been found to be responsible for causing some cancer types in humans. The collection of the viral genome gathered from cancer genome sequencing data can help identify the origin of the cancer. Here is the latest research on oncoviral profiles.

Ataxia

Ataxia is a neurological condition characterized by lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements including loss of coordination, balance, and speech. Discover the latest research on ataxia here.

CREs: Gene & Cell Therapy

Gene and cell therapy advances have shown promising outcomes for several diseases. The role of cis-regulatory elements (CREs) is crucial in the design of gene therapy vectors. Here is the latest research on CREs in gene and cell therapy.

Cancer Stem Cells in Glioblastoma

Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive type of brain tumor. It contains a population of tumor initiating stem cell-like cells known as cancer stem cells. Investigations are ongoing into these cancer stem cells found in these solid tumors which are highly resistance to treatment. Here is the latest research on cancer stem cells in glioblastoma.

Hereditary Cancer Syndromes

Hereditary cancer syndromes comprise 5% of all cancers and have an increased risk of early onset and of multiple or bilateral malignancies. Here is the latest research on hereditary cancer syndromes.

Medulloblastoma

Medulloblastoma is a malignant brain tumor that starts in the cerebellum and spreads through the cerebrospinal fluid to other parts of the CNS. Here is the latest research on this cancer.

Demyelinating Disorders of the CNS

Demyelinating diseases result in damage to the myelin sheath that surrounds nerves in the brain and spinal cord and can result in neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis. Here is the latest research on demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system.
