Brian Volkman and Chad Koplinski check a column used for filtering in their lab at the Medical College of Wisconsin on Tuesday.
Science and its interpretation is wonderful. Today I saw a post on Twitter from @LAbizar, referencing an @GEN, post that stated 8.2% of Human DNA is Functional with a link to a GEN article: "Surprise: Only 8.2% of Human DNA Is Functional."
Although TTF-1 inhibits the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition induced by transforming growth factor-β in lung adenocarcinoma cells, the mechanism through which TTF-1 inhibits the functions of TGF-β is unknown.
Dr. Richard Hyslop, a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Northern Colorado, left, is leading a project that seeks to identify methods of delivering inactive cannabis compounds thought to slow tumor growth into the body without causing the serious side effects associated with ingesting large quantities of active cannabis.

Called Baseline Study, the project will collect anonymous genetic and molecular information from 175 people-and later thousands more-to create what the company hopes will be the fullest picture of what a healthy human being should be.
Researchers at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center announced results of a clinical trial of a new drug shown to safely reduce the viral load and clinical illness of healthy adult volunteers intranasally infected with respiratory syncytial virus .
Researchers at UC San Francisco have discovered that endostatin, a protein that once aroused intense interest as a possible cancer treatment, plays a key role in the stable functioning of the nervous system.
Talk to Henrik Dohlman, PhD, and you'll realize that the quest for personalized medicine is about to get a whole lot more personal.
Purdue University physicists are part of an international group using spinach to study the proteins involved in photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert the sun's energy into carbohydrates used to power cellular processes.
Genomics is the study of the gene and its functions and proteomics is the study of the structure and functions of proteomes or sets of proteins by using molecular biology and bioinformatics tools and technology.
Several human neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease , Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease but also ageing, are linked to an accumulation of abnormal and aggregated proteins in cells.
Researchers have discovered a possible explanation for the surprisingly large range of biological effects that are linked to a micronutrient called lipoic acid: It appears to reset and synchronize circadian rhythms, or the "biological clock" found in most life forms.
I'm the founder of Science 2.0A . A wise man once said Darwin had the greatest idea anyone ever had.
