Hydroxyurea derivatives kill colon cancer cells

...ous side effects. This prompted the researchers to synthesize similar drugs with different structures that they hypothesized would be less likely to cause complications. The researchers tested the drugs against colon cancer implants in mice. One of the compounds, EPH116, blocked the tumor growth at doses that ...

Brain stem cells to help in producing insulin

...One reason for such is inability of the patient to synthesize insulin in the body. The work of the Stanford researchers may be one of the first in the direction of diabetes control when the body can resume insulin secretion after treatment. The researchers had taken human neural progenitor cells taken from bra...

Research Shows Carbon Monoxide Prevents Inflammations

...ked the gene for the Hmox enzyme and was unable to synthesize carbon monoxide. Another group produced unusually high levels of Hmox and CO. When the scientists’ transplanted windpipes from one type of mouse into the other, genetic differences between the two strains of mice triggered transplant rejection, infla...

Yet Another Use For Cocoa Flavonols

...ent flavonols. They also say that they are able to synthesize not only those found in nature but also compounds tailored to specific needs. Several studies in recent years have demonstrated that the flavonols found in cocoa and dark chocolate have heart health benefits and new work is beginning to elucidate t...

Cholesterol Mystery Solved By Nobel Laureates

...holesterol intake reduces SREBP and the genes that synthesize cholesterol and fat, but this response was dysfunctional in the transgenic mice such that fat and cholesterol synthesis was not suppressed. The transgenic mice also had dysregulated levels of HMG-CoA reductase protein, the precursor for cholesterol s...

Protein Linking Vitamin E And Prostate Cancer

...srupted the pathway by which prostate cancer cells synthesize prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and the androgen receptor. Both these steps are vital in the development and progression of the cancer. “No one really knows how vitamin E works. TAP may give us insights into how vitamin E works anywhere in the body a...

Lack Of Estrogen In Brain Tissue Of Women Can Lead To Alzheimer's

...techniques. In addition, it lacked the capacity to synthesize estrogen as well. Animals that were thus produced had reduced levels of estrogen in the brain and had a much earlier onset of plaque build up. To confirm that brain estrogen levels plays a significant role in the disease process, mice that underwen...

Scientists reveal mechanism behind high-fat, diabetes link.

...nzyme deficiency. The GnT-4a enzyme is required to synthesize a glycan structure that holds the glucose transporter in place at the beta cell surface. The loss of this key transporter is directly linked to reduced GnT-4a protein glycosylation, a high-fat diet, and type 2 diabetes.” According to Marth and his c...

The researchers found that immunizing swine with a purified hemoglobin receptor protected the animals from a challenge infection, even after multipl...

Role of Vitamin D in Preventing Cancer

... and kidneys. As we age the ability of our body to synthesize vitamin D also reduces and hence the consumption dosage also varies. People between the ages of one and 50 are recommended to consume 400 IU of vitamin D daily, those aged 51 to 70 need 800 IU, and after the age of 70 a daily intake of 1000 IU is rec...
