Advanced prostate cancer has an unexpected weakness that can be targeted by drugs
(Kanazawa University) Kanazawa University researchers reported that the SUCLA2 gene is frequently involved in the deletion of the tumor suppressor gene RB1 in advanced prostate cancer. RB1 deletion makes cells resistant to hormone therapy but SUCLA2 deletion induces a metabolic weakness. The study showed that thymoquinone selectively killed SUCLA2-deficient prostate cancer cellsinvitro andinvivo. The findings highlight a vulnerability of advanced prostate cancer cells that can be targeted by drugs.

55 Years After Agent Orange Was Used In Vietnam, One Of Its Creators Is Thriving Here
HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam ― Fifty-five years ago this month, the U.S. Army began spraying millions of gallons of the toxic defoliant known as Agent Orange over large swaths of southern Vietnam. Today, however, instead of resentment and isolation from the U.S., the country is awash with Americanophilia. Ho Chi Minh City, once the capital of the U.S.-backed regime under the name of Saigon, is now teeming with McDonald’s and Starbucks businesses. The present economic hub of Vietnam also boasts an increase in Apple stores, which see their clientele anxiously waiting for the debut of the latest iPhones and are often con...

The silver ribbon of stars that wraps the night sky has long been an awe-inspiring sight for anyone who cares to look up. But that’s not the case anymore for people who live under a fog of light pollution.

If You Can’t Sleep, Society May Be To Blame
Our biological clocks may not dictate our bedtimes, but they do influence when we wake up in the morning, a new study finds. Cultural pressures and daily responsibilities may override our biological clocks and dictate when we go to sleep, according to the study, published today (May 6) in the journal Science Advances. However, people's wake-up times are still highly dependent on their biological clocks, as opposed to just on their morning responsibilities, such as going to work or school, the researchers said. The new findings show that "bedtime is more under the control of society, and wake time is more under the control ...

Report Kinetically controlled E-selective catalytic olefin metathesis
A major shortcoming in olefin metathesis, a chemical process that is central to research in several branches of chemistry, is the lack of efficient methods that kinetically favor E isomers in the product distribution. Here we show that kinetically E-selective cross-metathesis reactions may be designed to generate thermodynamically disfavored alkenyl chlorides and fluorides in high yield and with exceptional stereoselectivity. With 1.0 to 5.0 mole % of a molybdenum-based catalyst, which may be delivered in the form of air- and moisture-stable paraffin pellets, reactions typically proceed to completion within 4 hours at ambi...

New blood test can detect a range of inherited heart conditions
Conclusion This study aimed to develop a more comprehensive diagnostic test for a wide range of inherited heart conditions. The researchers developed a single test that was able to look at 174 genes known or suspected to cause these conditions. It was quicker and gave better coverage of the genes it looked at than the existing methods it was tested against. Such a test is likely to be very useful when a person is thought to have an inherited heart condition, but it is not known exactly which gene is causing it. It could help doctors to quickly identify the exact cause and start the person on appropriate treatment, and a...

Coffee 'can make you live longer' claims
ConclusionThis large study found that people who drink coffee have a slightly reduced risk of death compared to non-coffee-drinkers, up to the point of five cups a day. Beyond five cups, the picture is more complicated – it may be, as the researchers say, because of the link between heavy coffee drinking and smoking. However, we can't be sure that's the case.The results for moderate coffee drinking are more consistent, but they still do not prove that coffee alone is the reason that coffee-drinkers were less likely to die during the study. The study has several strengths, including its large collective sample size, long...
