‘Jallianwala Bagh centenary, ‘good time’ among British regime apologise’

After 98 years Jallianwala Bagh Martyrs identified

Chandigarh: The historical moment of 13th April 1919 in Jallianwala Bagh where Reginald Edward Harry Dyer killed hundreds of unidentified Freedom Fighters with his successful plotting as a General. After 98 years of the incident, the Punjab government has given the identification to Jallainwala Bagh martyrs by mentioning their names on the statue installed at

Cancer cells’ invisibility cloak identified

Toronto: Canadian researchers have discovered how cancer cells become invisible to the body’s immune system which may help in developing immune bio markers that can potentially stop the disease in its tracks. This ‘invisibility’ phase is a crucial step that allows tumours to spread throughout the body — when the spread cannot be traced. The

Washington mall shooting suspect arrested, identified

Washington: The suspect in a shooting at a Washington state mall that killed five persons was arrested and has been identified, police said. The suspect was identified as Arcan Cetrin, 20, a resident of Oak Harbour, Washington, located about 28 miles southwest of Cascade Mall in Burlington, the Washington State Patrol said. Police released his

Four basic personality types identified: study

London: People can be classified into four basic personality types: optimistic, pessimistic, trusting and envious, a new study on human behaviour has found. Envious, is the most common, with 30 per cent compared to 20 per cent for each of the other three groups, researchers said. The study, including researchers from Universidad Carlos III de

Altered DNA linked to new brain disorder identified

New York: A team of international researchers has identified the genetic mutations involved in a rare, new and unnamed neurological disorder that emerged in siblings of two families from Pakistan and Oman. “The new neurogenetic disorder due to mutations in GPT2,” said Eric Morrow, Associate Professor at Brown University, US. The GPT2 gene is expressed in

Media misbehaviour case: 3 AAP men identified

After registering a case against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Member Parliament from Sangrur, who along with his party activists misbehaved with media persons during a recent rally of the party in Bassi Pathana, the Bassi Pathana police with the help of media persons on Sunday identified three AAP volunteers who were allegedly involved in manhandling

Stones used as hunting weapons a million years ago identified

New York: Researchers have discovered the purpose of a large number of spherical stone artifacts found at a major archaeological site in South Africa. These stones, which date from between 1.8 million and 70,000 years ago, — previously thought by some to be used as tools — served instead as weapons for defence and hunting,

Novel protein linked to diabetes identified

New York: Researchers have identified a protein, the lack of which can contribute to development of Type-2 diabetes. Absence of the PTRF (Cavin-1) protein in model organisms and humans results in a nearly complete loss of fat cells, a condition called lipodystrophy. This lack of fat cells causes fat to be mis-targeted to other tissues

New rare form of hereditary colon cancer identified

London: Researchers have discovered that mutation in a gene can led to a form of hereditary colon cancer which was not identified earlier. The researchers discovered genetic changes in the MSH3 gene in patients and identified a new form of colon cancer. “The knowledge about molecular mechanisms which lead to cancer is also a precondition

Protein that may ‘shock and kill’ HIV virus identified

New York: Researchers have identified a protein that can potently force the latent human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) viruses out of hiding and poison them on their way out, leading to potential treatments for the deadly disease. The findings showed that galectin-9 — a human sugar-binding protein — reactivates latent HIV viruses and renders these infected

RNA molecule that fuels cancer growth identified

London: Researchers have identified an RNA molecule that helps cancer cells in growing opportunistically, offering scientists a new target for drug development. The study showed that NEAT1, a non-coding RNA, plays an important role in the survival of highly dividing cells — and in particular of cancer cells. These findings can help develop new drugs

New culprit for heart diseases identified

Washington: Researchers have identified anew culprit, in the form of fragmentation of elastic fibers within the arterial wall, that could lead to heart diseases, a finding that may change the scope of cardiovascular disease detection and treatment for millions. Medical professionals have long known that the buildup of plaque in arteries can cause them to
