Mayo Researchers Provide Atomic View of a Histone Chaperone

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic researchers have gained insights into the function of a member of a family of specialized proteins called histone chaperones. Using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography, they have determined the 3-D structure and interactions of the histone chaperone Rtt106 down to the atomic [...]

Mayo Clinic Cancer Center Team Completes Whole Human Genome Sequence on Patient with Blood Cancer

The concept of personalized medical treatment based on a patients DNA is one small step closer to becoming a reality. A Mayo Clinic Cancer Center team in Arizona recently completed its first whole human genome sequencing on a patient suffering from Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow. In [...]

Study Suggests Improved DNA Stool Test Could Detect Digestive Cancers in Multiple Organs

Mayo Clinic researchers have demonstrated that a noninvasive screening test can detect not only colorectal cancer but also the common cancers above the colon — including pancreas, stomach, biliary and esophageal cancers. This is one of more than 100 Mayo Clinic studies being presented at Digestive Disease Week 2009 in [...]

Mayo Clinic-Led Researchers Confirm Gene Variants Associated With The Most Common Adult Leukemia

A national team of researchers led by Mayo Clinic has found that patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) are more likely to have similar DNA changes or variants in up to six genes, compared to people who do not have the cancer. The findings, presented at the annual meeting of [...]

Researchers Identify Role of Cul4 Molecule in Genome Instability and Cancer

Mayo Clinic researchers have shown that a molecule called Cul4 helps to deposit DNA-packaging histone proteins onto DNA, an integral step in cramming yards of genetic code into compact coils that can fit into each cell. When DNA isn’t packaged correctly, it can lead to the genomic instability characteristic of [...]
