RING finger protein 5 may guide treatment for muscle disease in older adults

... to what is often seen in patients with IBM, muscle specimens from RNF5 overexpressing animals revealed the presence of structures known as rimmed vacuoles and congophilic inclusions, hallmarks of this disease. The researchers also found increased levels of markers characteristic of ER stress, a ...

Cornell researcher seeks clues to how tuberculosis infects cells

... College of Veterinary Medicine, and colleagues reported in a November issue of the journal Cell Host and Microbe, that increased acidity inside the vacuoles containing the bacteria serves as the trigger for M. tuberculosis genes to express proteins. The study also compared the responses of M. ...

Legionnaire's bacterial proteins work together to survive

... that are part of the immune system and eat cellular debris and toxins. Macrophages kill bacteria by transporting them in storage bubbles known as vacuoles to organelles that have enzymes to then break down the intruders. What makes this pathogen special is that it can control transport of the ...

In vitro tests conducted by Dr. Marceau’s team revealed that the application of DMAE induces a quick and spectacular swelling of skin cell vacuoles called fibroblasts, which act as reservoirs and interface between the inside and the outside of the cell. In the hours following the application ...

Targeted virus compels cancer cells to eat themselves
