PTEN is often called an “anticancer” protein, because it prevents tumor cells from growing out of control. Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have discovered that another protein protects PTEN, and that a deficiency in this protective mechanism could be the driving force behind some cases of prostate cancer, lung cancer and other tumor types.
Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York have created the first model of genetic obesity in fruit flies.
A team of researchers at Long Island, NY’s Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have developed a brain mapping technique that can, in a single experiment, trace the paths of individual neurons like stepping stones from one to another.
