Autophagy may Lead to Heart Disease

...nction. It appears to be an adaptive response that protects the body in times of stress or starvation. But in response to other forms of stress such as hypertension, which can lead to cardiovascular disease, autophagy might also lead to harmful changes in the heart muscle, particularly in decompensated hear...

Chromosone Disorders - Unrevealed Facts

...somes, and this ability to adopt double identities protects them from detection by the control centre. We believe that this new fundamental mechanism can help to explain why chromosome disorders are so common in female sex cells, says Professor Christer Hg, leader of the study. The research might eventually...

Boffins Identify Gene That can Protect Humans from Nephronopthisis

...s Treier, group leader at EMBL, as saying. GLIS2 protects adult kidney against cell death by turning off genes that trigger cell death, and that are necessary for the organ development. A change in the GLIS2 function sets off harmful genes leading to large numbers of kidney cells' death.. To see if GLI...

New Therapies for Kidney Diseases

Late onset blepharospasm is a dystonia in which the eyelid muscles contract uncontrollably; this starts as involuntary blinking but in extrem...

Protein Pathway Involved in Parkinson Disease Development Identified

...in PINK1 gene (one from each parent) that normally protects cells from oxidative stress and promotes cell survival by regulating function of the protein TRAP1. The Emory researchers found that when PINK1 is mutated, however, the protective TRAP1 pathway is disrupted, leading to mitochondrial damage. They ...
