Every cell in the body theoretically have a common genome, but genes are used in different ways. Proteins called transcription factors can activate or suppress certain genes. The protein Myc is a classic cancer Continue reading “Modifiers of gene activity contribute to the development of leukemia and determine the effectiveness of chemotherapy”

Scientists have found an original method for the treatment of multiple sclerosis.

In patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis damage to the nervous tissue can recover after an acute attack of the disease. Over time, however, the recovery phase continue to be repeated. As a result, the damage Continue reading “The aging of phagocytes prevents the restoration of nervous tissue in multiple sclerosis”
