Role of zinc in development

...tion, said, "Zinc is essential for making new body proteins including cell growth and brain development in the unborn baby. It comes from a variety of foods but is most easily absorbed from foods of animal origin such as meat, seafood and poultry. Since iron can interfere with zinc absorption, it would make...

Minor mutations in HIV virus

...ital (MGH), published a study-- HIV can mutate key proteins in order to hide from an immune attack. But once these mutations occur they persist. When HIV attacks, the cell alerts the immune system by displaying viral protein fragments on the surface. This is a suicide signal to kill the infected cell. The im...

Genes for lung disease

...genes that code for so-called pulmonary surfactant proteins (SPs), which play a key role in lung function. In a group of people from Mexico, certain variants of two of the SP genes occurred more often in those with COPD. Smoking, and being male, were also found to be risk factors. Further study of CP genes m...

Aspirin and Warfarin Are Equally Effective for Stroke Prevention

...lets, while warfarin inhibits circulating clotting proteins in the blood. Aspirin has been used for over 100 years, but its beneficial effects to prevent stroke and heart attack only started to be recognized in the 1970s. Coumadin, known generically as warfarin, has been used for about 50 years to combat stro...

Gene Treatment for Heart Disease
