Protein in eye fights diseases

...titute in Boston found the factor alpha-MSH can be harnessed and used as a therapeutic drug. The drug can then prevent the onset of and stop the progression of uveitis in mice. Uveitis is a sight-stealing autoimmune disease. "The results of our study are exciting and significant because they confirm for the f...

Enhancing Infants Immune System

...the immune response is fully functional and can be harnessed to boost immunity in these tiny infants, possibly making infections like respiratory syncytial virus, pneumococcus, pertussis, HIV and rotavirus much less of a threat. For about a decade it's been known that people's first line of defense against in...

Tumor Resistant Mice Point To Novel Cancer Treatments

...ed a similar link in humans as well, that could be harnessed to arrive at a novel approach for cancer treatment. ‘The idea of cells being able to kill tumor cells ... is very exciting. But this is a mouse, and there is no guarantee that the same gene will exist in people,’ said biologist Howard Young of the ...

Solitons Could Power Molecular Electronics, Artificial Muscles

...tion. "If fully understood, solitons may also be harnessed to drive molecular motors in nanotechnology," Li said. This work was mainly funded by Honda R&D Co., Ltd., with computing resources provided by the Ohio Supercomputer Center. (Source: Newswise)...

Feedback Loop Governing Ovarian Development Unraveled

...ders and show how the power of stem cells could be harnessed to help organs call different cell types into action and regenerate, the researchers said. Stem cells are cells that have not yet specialized and can develop into any number of different cell types. They also have the remarkable ability to self-renew...

"Dynamic Energy Landscape" of enzyme in Catalysis

...ction cycle-the thermal motions of the protein are harnessed to perform its biological function, in this case, catalysis. Knowledge of the excited-state conformations of proteins may offer new opportunities for drug design." The researchers used nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to detect and characterize hig...

Lungs repair themselves

...derstand this process in the hope that it could be harnessed to repair the diseased adult lung. In particular, Woods and his colleagues looked at three genes associated with elastic fiber assembly: Emilin-1, MFAP2 and elastin.

Cellular Cues Identified for Stroke Recovery

...same levels as the control (non-stroke) mice. If harnessed properly, said Carmichael, the molecular mechanisms for neuronal regeneration hold the promise of regenerating and reconnecting brain cells near the area where stroke occurs.

Energy harnessed from the bio-latrine, among other bio-fuel facilities, can lower reliance on firewood, charcoal and grid power, which is unreliable in many African cities and hard to come by in rural areas. The process is relatively simple. Residents pay about six...
