Green monkeys acquired Staphylococcus aureus from humans

Many deadly diseases that afflict humans were originally acquired through contact with animals. New research suggests that pathogens can also jump the species barrier to move from humans to animals. The study shows that green monkeys in The Gambia acquired Staphylococcus aureus from humans….

Krüppel-like factor 12 promotes colorectal cancer via early growth response protein 1

Investigators report preclinical research showing that Krüppel-like factor 12 promotes colorectal cancer cell growth by activating early growth response protein 1. Data also reveal that levels of KLF12 and EGR1 correlate synergistically with a poor CRC prognosis. Results indicate that KLF12 plays an important role in CRC progression and provides a potential novel prognostic marker and therapeutic target….

Fish oil vs. lard: Why some fat can help or hinder your diet

A diet high in saturated fat can make your brain struggle to control what you eat, says a new study. Consuming fish oil instead of lard can make a significant difference, the study shows….

Researchers find molecular switch that triggers bacterial pathogenicity

The supercoiling of bacterial chromosomes around histone-like proteins can trigger the expression of genes that make the microbe invasive, new research shows. The discovery could provide a new target for the development of drugs to prevent or treat bacterial infection, say scientists….

Scientists identify immunological profiles of people who make powerful HIV antibodies

People living with HIV who naturally produce broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) that may help suppress the virus have different immunological profiles than people who do not, researchers report. While bNAbs cannot completely clear HIV infections in people who already acquired the virus, scientists believe a successful preventive HIV vaccine must induce bNAbs. Defining how to safely replicate these attributes in HIV-uninfected vaccine recipients may lead to better designed experimental vacci…

Replication project investigates self-control as limited resource

A new research replication project, involving 24 labs and over 2,100 participants, failed to reproduce findings from a previous study that suggested that self-control is a depletable resource….
