Researchers identify potential biomarker for cancer diagnosis
Medical Xpress
Scientists studying cancer development have known about micronuclei for some time. These erratic, small extra nuclei, which contain fragments, or whole chromosomes that were not incorporated into daughter cells after cell division, are associated with specific forms of cancer and are predictive of poorer prognosis. In a new study, a team of scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies finds that disrupted micronuclei, which can trigger massive DNA damage on chromosomes, might play an even more active role in carcinogenesis than previously thought.

Cell biologist to begin work on discovering structure of malaria parasite genome
The University of California, Riverside
Malaria is one of the most important infectious diseases in the developing world, with the absence of a vaccine and the development of parasite resistance to commonly used antimalarial drugs complicating efforts to fight the deadly disease. The parasite that causes malaria is Plasmodium, which requires specific human and mosquito tissues to complete its life cycle. The progression and control of this life cycle could be better understood by studying changes of the 3-D structure of the parasite's genome.

'Liver' grown from stem cells
The Star Online
Scientists in Japan recently said they had grown human liver tissue from stem cells in a first that holds promise for alleviating the critical shortage of donor organs. Creating lab-grown tissue to replenish organs damaged by accident or disease is a Holy Grail for the pioneering field of research into the premature cells known as stem cells.

Closer to real 3-D cell culture advances
Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News
As the 360 government-owned chimpanzees officially retired on June 26, the hope is that in vitro technologies will replace animals in some drug testing and other biochemical and physiological studies. The animals' release comes as more sophisticated platform-based in vitro technologies, supported by private organizations as well as investors, are being developed and applied to study human drug metabolism.

How aspirin might stem cancer
The New York Times
The use of aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs significantly reduces the risk for cancer, but no one has been able to explain why. Now researchers have found that these drugs slow the accumulation of a type of DNA change called somatic genome abnormalities, or S.G.A.'s, that lead to uncontrolled cell growth.

Peering into the protein pathways of a cell
UConn Today
As a cell's central power plant, the mitochondrion is a busy place. Specially coded proteins from the nucleus are constantly being ferried across the mitochondrion's inner membrane, where they help the mighty organelle do its work — producing the cell's high-energy molecules, carrying out signaling duties and controlling cell growth.
