Digestive acid production dependent on newly found hormone

...acid. Researchers have identified a receptor that senses bile acid and responds by secreting FGF15. In the liver, the secreted intestinal protein limits the activity of an enzyme called cholesterol 7a-hydroxylase (CYP7A1) critical to bile acid production. Animal models lacking FGF15 were found to have incr...

New sensors developed to predict effectiveness of radiotherapy treatment

...e working principle of semiconductor material that senses the incoming radiation and transmits it to a display unit. INVORAD also developed a cylindrical 'body phantom'. The 'phantom' is given the prescribed dose and the sensors pick up the dose actually delivered. If the 'phantom' treatment matches the p...

Research Throws Light On Regeneration of Hearing Cells

...h of the cochlea – the organ of the inner ear that senses sound – where they convert sonic vibrations to electrical signals that are carried to the brain. The cells are very sensitive to damage from excessive noise, infections and toxins. Once damaged, hair cells do not naturally regenerate in mammals, and ...

Sensory Input Necessary During "Critical Periods" Of Brain Development

The visual system provides an exemplary model for studying developmental plasticity, however, because of the pioneering work of Nobel prize-winning HMS researchers David Hubel and ...

Lack of STAT1 -an Immune Protein, Pack Liver Infection Cure

...production is triggered whenever the immune system senses a foreign bacterium, virus or other pathogen. STAT1 activation is a critical step in the immune system response, as this protein activates other key immune substances.
