Ultraviolet light-induced mutation drives many skin cancers, Stanford researchers find

PUBLIC RELEASE DATE: 7-Sep-2014 Contact: Krista Conger kristac@stanford.edu 650-725-5371 Stanford University Medical Center A genetic mutation caused by ultraviolet light is likely the driving force behind millions of human skin cancers, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The mutation occurs in a gene called KNSTRN, which is involved in helping cells divide their DNA equally during cell division. Genes that cause cancer when mutated are known as oncogenes

Genetic Mutations and Skin Cancer

Researchers have found that millions of skin cancers may be caused by a combination of a genetic mutation and ultraviolet light. A study by investigators from the Stanford University School of Medicine found that the mutation occurs in a gene called KNSTRN, which helps cells divide their DNA during cell division. KNSTRN is an oncogene a gene that causes cancer when mutated.

Ohio State Gene Testing Could Unlock Key To Curing Cancer

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Cancer research goes beyond medicine at The Ohio State University’s James Cancer Hospital. Doctors conduct genetic testing at Ohio State, unraveling the genetic code of a specific cancer. “The idea is can we identify what these cancers are, what’s wrong with these cancers, and what’s the right therapy for them?” said Dr

The genius of genomics

It is 14 years since Tony Blair and Bill Clinton invited the world’s media to the White House for an announcement that would have seemed like science fiction just a few years earlier: the entire human genome – the genetic blueprint of human beings – had been mapped for the first time. Looking somewhat awestruck, the prime minister and the president promised their press conference would pave the way for ‘a new era of genetic medicine’

Scientists devise a bar code for the bacteria that causes tuberculosis

PUBLIC RELEASE DATE: 1-Sep-2014 Contact: Jenny Orton press@lshtm.ac.uk 44-207-927-2802 London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine Doctors and researchers will be able to easily identify different types of tuberculosis (TB) thanks to a new genetic barcode devised by scientists from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. The bacteria that cause the deadly respiratory disease have evolved into families of strains, or lineages, which may affect people differently. To help identify the different origins and map how tuberculosis moves around the world, spreading from person to person through the air, the research team studied over 90,000 genetic mutations.
