Translating Structure into Function

...teams success was a computational feat: simulating candidate substrates that mimicked unstable intermediate molecules those that exist only briefly as the catalyst turns the substrate into a new molecule. Because these intermediates are unstable, scientists have until now been unable to test their fit to th...

Diabetics Risking Health by Using Alternative Medications Without Consultation

...onventional treatment. Annie Chang, a doctorate candidate in Griffith's School of Nursing, says that though some complementary and alternative therapies may benefit patients, they can also have side effects or interact with conventional medications. "Fenugreek for example, used as a supplement, may affe...

New Oncogene for Brain Cancer

...ant to treatment. This makes IGFBP2 an important candidate for development of targeted therapy to treat gliomas, Zhang says. Gliomas kill about 13,000 people in the United States annually. The possibilities are not limited to brain cancer, Fuller notes, because of the pervasive overexpression of IGFBP2 doc...

Role of MicroRNA in Cancer Suppression Identified

Researchers Say Brain Region Responsible for Pain's Ability to Seek Attention

...g of the LOC. The study theorized that the best candidate for this region was one called the rostral anterior cingulate cortex (rACC) known to be involved in the brain's processing of pain and plays an important role in 'executive" functions such as attentional control. The fMRI scans indicated that the ...

Hormone Inhibitor in Prostate Cancer Treatment

...despite medical or surgical castration, a new drug candidate that inhibits production of male hormones anywhere in the body is showing promise in early trials. Male hormones such as testosterone are produced mainly in the testes, but are also produced by the adrenal gland and elsewhere in the body. These hor...

Genes Play Major Role in Determining Individual's Sour Taste Perception

...ences in sensitivity to sourness. For any given candidate receptor, a strong association of genetic with perceptual variation would support the likelihood that the receptor detects sour taste. The findings, in conjunction with previous work on sweet, bitter, and umami (savoury) taste, suggest that people...

Evolution of HIV from African Greek Monkeys

...the paper's first author Joel Wertheim, a doctoral candidate in the UA department of ecology and evolutionary biology. "This finding sheds light on the future direction of HIV evolution."

Human Trial for Universal Influenza Vaccine Underway

...nical trials on humans are underway - that is, the candidate vaccine is being administered to a small group of healthy people in order to verify the safety of the product and to provide an initial insight into the vaccines effect on the human immune system. Xavier Saelens, Prof. Emeritus Willy Min Jou, and P...

Experts Identify Vaccine Target for HIV

...us disease. Past studies have looked at individual candidate genes. Since different people respond differently to infections, a better understanding of how immune system genes control responses to infections should help us to design better treatments and more effective vaccines, Goldstein said. CHAVI was des...

Scientists Have Invented New Device to Reap Fresh Water from the Air

...roduced with local means," said Joseph Cory, a PhD candidate at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and an architect at Haifa, Israel-based Geotectura Studio. He said the inexpensive solution could prove a boon for people in the remote or polluted areas. Taking inspiration from the passive way dew...

New Genetic Studies Carried Out in Cancer Therapy

...e to directly examine the contribution of over 800 candidate proteins to the sensitivity or resistance of cancer cells to several drugs that are commonly used to treat cancer. Using this technique, the researchers found that resistance to the chemotherapeutic agent paclitaxel, a member of the taxane family, ...

Eyelid Spasm can Be Prevented by Coffee Drinking

... coffee as a protective factor. The most obvious candidate for the protective effect is caffeine, but the low frequency of decaffeinated coffee intake in Italy prevented us from examining the effects of caffeine on blepharospasm. They suggest that caffeine blocks adenosine receptors as has been proposed for ...

Vietnam Plans Human Trial of Bird Flu Vaccine

...n of the virus found in Indonesia. "There are many candidate vaccines, and some have been approved for stockpiling in emergency use," said Iademarco. But he said the long-term challenge was to "develop the capacity for rapid mass production." The NIHE project is one of Vietnam's three research drives for a b...
