Therapy targeting BRAFV600E mutation could inhibit aggressive growth of melanoma tumors

Dartmouth researchers have found that the genetic mutation BRAFV600E , frequently found in metastatic melanoma , not only secretes a protein that promotes the growth of melanoma tumor cells, but can also modify the network of normal cells around the tumor to support the disease's progression. Targeting this mutation with Vemurafenib reduces this interaction, and suggests possible new treatment options for melanoma therapy.

UNC Researchers Find Final Pieces to the Circadian Clock Puzzle

Researchers at the UNC School of Medicine have discovered how two genes - Period and Cryptochrome - keep the circadian clocks in all human cells in time and in proper rhythm with the 24-hour day, as well as the seasons. The finding, published today in the journal Genes and Development , has implications for the development of drugs for various diseases such as cancers and diabetes, as well as conditions such as metabolic syndrome, insomnia, seasonal affective disorder, obesity, and even jetlag.

Sample-to-answer instruments: pros and cons

Molecular biology has its roots in the biochemistry laboratories of the 1960s and l970s; PCR was developed in the mid-1980s, and by 1990 was in widespread use in academic laboratory settings. Common clinical use of molecular diagnostic techniques lagged behind academic applications, and in many cases still does in the present day.
