Princeton researchers discover how worms pass down knowledge of a pathogen to their offspring .
Princeton researchers Rachel Kaletsky, Rebecca Moore, Coleen Murphy and colleagues have discovered that the microscopic roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans recognizes a small RNA made by a pathogenic bacterium, and uses that RNA to convey learned avoidance of the bacterium to offspring.
Kang finds keys to control the ‘driver of cancer’s aggressiveness’ .
A dangerous protein named SNAI2 helps cancers metastasize and shields cancer from both the immune system and chemotherapy. Worse, SNAI2 is in a family of proteins that are notoriously hard to fight with drugs. But now Princeton University's Yibin Kang and his colleagues have found a way to use the cell's recycling system to control SNAI2, providing a new possibility for treatments.
