The JDP2 gene, encoding a transcription factor protein, is a prognostic marker with unfavorable outcome in colon adenocarcinoma. Credit: Human Protein Atlas A new Pathology Atlas is launched today with an analysis of all human genes in all major cancers showing the consequence of their corresponding protein levels for overall patient survival. The difference in

The team investigated the star system Gliese 832 for additional exoplanets residing between the two currently known alien worlds in this

Our sex is determined by the X and Y chromosomes. Usually, girls have two X chromosomes (XX) and boys have one X and

More than half of African-American women will cite thinning hair or hair loss

The contributing factors of traction alopecia are shown. Credit: Johns Hopkins Medicine. In a review of 19 studies, researchers at Johns Hopkins say they can confirm a “strong association” between certain scalp-pulling hairstyles — many common among African-Americans — and the development of traction alopecia, gradual hair loss caused by damage to the hair follicle

Within 3 weeks, mice that received topical ruxolitinib or tofacitinib had regrown nearly all their hair (right photo; drug was applied only to the right side of the mouse). Little to no hair growth occurred in control mice during the same timeframe (left photo). Credit: From S. Harel et al., Sci. Adv. 1, e1500973 (2015).

Flooding in August 2005 in Kappl-Nederle (Paznaun Valley, Tyrol).

When a major flood event occurs it is often attributed to climate change. However,

Pigs. Credit: © krumanop / Fotolia Scientists have edited the pig genome to deactivate a family of retroviruses. The results hold important implications for transplant medicine in humans. The shortage of human organs and tissues for transplantation represents one of the most significant unmet medical needs. One promising prospect is to use animal organs in
