In other words, junk peptides result from genetic mistakes. The immune system cells of mice, in fact, did...

Comprehension of taste receptor

...esearchers have found that combining T1R1 and T1R3 creates a response for amino acids.Taste research is a hot field at the moment, said Professor Laing. Recent advances in molecular biology have allowed researchers to work with larger amounts of cloned receptors, rather than with the small numbers available ...

Researchers trick Alzheimer's Enzyme

...zyme catalyzes the so-called "click reaction" that creates its own worst enemy -- its most potent inhibitor. "Think of this as a Trojan Horse approach for battling disease, but this horse goes the Greeks one better," Sharpless, W.M. Keck professor of chemistry at Scripps, said in a prepared statement. Once...

According to Moore and her colleagues, their findings support the theory that some women who develop gestational diabetes may have "underlying biochemical changes" that promote the development of chromosome defects before the d...

Decrease of 'Hunger Hormone' after Obesity Surgery

...ric surgery known as Roux-en-Y, in which a surgeon creates a small pouch in the stomach and also bypasses a portion of the small intestine. Afterwards, patients tend to eat less--and lose weight--because they feel full on less food. But the surgery also appears to inhibit the production of ghrelin, thereby ...

Bacterial discovery may help CF patients
