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

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

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 ...
