A study by Rutgers University researchers describes a new connection between the way cells consume fat and how genes regulate stem cell behavior in the intestines of mice. According to the study, two genes (HNF4A and HNF4G)expressed in the intestinal cells that line the inside of the colon may be involved in cancer development. The finding discovered that when there’s too much dietary fat in the intestine, stem cell number increases boosting susceptibility to colon cancer. The scientists believe that the genes help stem cells burn fat, providing them energy. By linking gene activation, cell replication number, diet and cancer risk, scientists might be able to better understand the cancer development process in high-risk patients.
Recently, The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics has published a medical research that claims of a 72 hr detection blood test tool for Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer. This kind of an advanced detection tool will be helpful for the patients as well as medical practioners for selection of best possible treatment solutions. This technique will reduce the […]
The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry has recently made declared open access to its published articles on the eve of Earth Day celebration. The journal scope covers the subjects like chemistry and biochemistry of agriculture and food. The journal also publishes topics related to chemistry and biochemistry in association with biological, nutritional, sensory, and […]
A research team at the Icahn School of Medicine has developed a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform to detect different neurodegenerative disorders using brain tissue samples. The platform employs machine learning techniques to compute microscopic slides that are prepared using tissue samples. This helps generate a convolutional neural network that could accurately detect neurofibrillary tangles, […]
