- Brain-Machine Interfaces - Recent Advances
    Nature Web Focus includes exclusive interviews and video footage of
    experiments, alongside papers that paved the way for these recent
    advances.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg30.html

- Cold Sore Virus Can Evade The Immune System
    A newly identified method deployed by viruses to escape the immune
    system is reported.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg29.html

- Alternative Genetic Cause Of Devastating Dementia
    Two groups of neuroscientists have uncovered a mutation that can
    cause frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg28.html

- Making Cancer Stem Cells
    Researchers show how cancer-triggering oncogenes can allow blood
    cells to acquire this ability and thus become leukaemia stem cells.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg27.html

- Surprisingly, DNA Has Trouble Unwinding
    If you stretch the helical structure of DNA, it actually winds itself
    more tightly.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg26.html

- Co-Transplantation Of Bone Marrow Stromal Cells Transduced With IL-7
   Gene Enhances Immune Reconstitution After Allogeneic Bone Marrow
   Transplantation
    The use of MSC-IL-7 cells may be therapeutically useful for enhancing
    immune reconstitution without aggravating graft-versus-host disease
    (GVHD) in allo-BMT mice.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg25.html

- Plasmid-Mediated VEGF Gene Transfer Induces Cardiomyogenesis And
   Reduces Myocardial Infarct Size In Sheep
    VEGF gene transfer could also modify the evolution of experimental
    myocardial infarct.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg24.html

- A Linkage of Two JNK Isoforms With Obesity and Insulin Resistance
    The total activity of two isoforms of c-Jun N-terminal kinase is
    correlated with development of obesity and insulin resistance.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg23.html

- Gender: Its not how you look, its how you express yourself
    A UCLA study finds that the same genes express differently in males
    and females; discovery may explain gender gap in disease risk and
    drug response
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg22.html

- Prion Disease Infectivity May Yield New Mouse Model for Heart Diseases
    Laboratory mice infected with the agent of scrapie show high levels
    of the scrapie agent in their heart several hundred days after being
    infected in the brain yielding a potential animal model to study
    heart amyloidosis.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg21.html

- The Risk for Melanoma Possibly Inherited
    Scientists Identify an Inherited Gene That Strongly Affects Risk for
    the Most Common Form of Melanoma
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg20.html

- Hearing's Missing Link May Be a Protein Tied to Usher Syndrome
    Protocadherin-15 is a likely player in the split-second reaction in
    which sound is converted into electrical signals. The findings may
    help elucidate why some people temporarily lose their hearing after
    being exposed to loud noise.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg19.html

- Dopamine drug leads to neuronal replacement: a cure for Parkinson's
   Disease?
    In preliminary results, researchers have shown that a drug, which
    mimics the effects of dopamine, causes new neurons to develop in the
    part of the brain where cells are lost in Parkinson's disease (PD).
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2006/msg18.html

- Regulation of Microglial Neurotoxicity
    CX3CR1 signaling pathway is implicated in three models involving
    neurotoxicity: systemic inflammation, Parkinson's disease, and ALS.
