How fatal biofilms form

09-Oct-2018

By severely curtailing the effects of antibiotics, the formation of organized communities of bacterial cells known as biofilms can be deadly during surgeries and in urinary tract infections. Yale researchers have just come a lot closer to understanding how these biofilms develop, and potentially ...

Seeing how cells work as never before

17-Jul-2018

Yale is adding microscopy that provides an unprecedented view of specimens whose thickness had thwarted close inspection Biological structures exist and function in three dimensions, but the limitations of imaging technology have long meant that scientists could examine only two dimensions in ...

Imaging tracer allows early assessment of abdominal aortic aneurysm risk

04-Aug-2017

Yale University researchers have developed a way in which medical imaging could potentially be used to assess a patient's rupture risk for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Delaying surgical treatment can be life-threatening, and this new type of imaging could allow physicians to diagnose disease and ...

Images of pathogens’ tiny ‘syringes’ captured

13-Mar-2017

Salmonella and many other bacterial pathogens use a nano syringe-like device to deliver toxic proteins into target human cells. Now scientists at Yale and University of Texas Medical School-Houston have used cryo-electron tomography to reveal the molecular structure of this device, which is about ...

Here comes ‘NoBody,’ a microprotein on a mission

06-Dec-2016

Yale researchers have helped identify a novel, functional “microprotein” encoded in the human genome, using a technique that has revealed more than 400 new proteins too tiny to be found by other means. One of those microproteins, called NoBody, is a molecular workhorse involved in sweeping out ...

Study reveals protein to target in type 2 diabetes

02-Sep-2016

When the body’s cells don’t respond normally to insulin — a condition known as insulin resistance — blood glucose levels can increase, resulting in type 2 diabetes. Researchers have long known that insulin resistance is linked to defects in the insulin receptor (which controls glucose uptake) in ...

Team discovers how Zika virus causes fetal brain damage

26-Aug-2016

Infection by the Zika virus diverts a key protein necessary for neural cell division in the developing human fetus, thereby causing the birth defect microcephaly, a team of Yale scientists reported Aug. 24 in the journal Cell Reports. The findings suggest that Zika virus might be susceptible to ...

Tomosynthesis increases breast cancer detection rate

May improve detection in dense breasts

23-Apr-2013

2D plus 3D breast imaging increases cancer detection rates by 11%, and could be particularly useful in detecting cancer in women with dense breasts, a new study suggests. Researchers at Yale University Smilow Cancer Hospital in New Haven, CT, reviewed the screening mammograms of 14,684 patients. ...

Blood test could predict metastasis risk in melanoma

18-Apr-2011

Scientists at Yale University have identified a set of plasma biomarkers that could reasonably predict the risk of metastasis among patients with melanoma, according to findings published in Clinical Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research."The rate at which ...
