Morphine may excite cancerous tumors

...th by providing nutrients to growing tumors and by transporting cancer cells from a tumor to other parts of the body. Lead researcher Kalpna Gupta, Ph.D., from the University of Minnesota felt that, despite the widespread use of morphine to treat pain in many medical conditions like cancer, little was known abou...

New Cholesterol gene linked to Alzheimer's

...tion in another gene called APOE-4, which helps in transporting cholesterol throughout the body. In the new study which involved more than 400 patients with or without Alzheimer's, the CYP46 variant was found in about 40 percent of participants. It was observed in the study that patients with both the CYP46 and A...

Three dimensional structure of apolipoprotein revealed

...’s disease. Apolipoprotein E4 (apoE4) is a lipid transporting protein which is found to be responsible for cardiovascular diseases and familial alzheimer’s disease. Researchers feel that understanding the three dimensional configuration would help in designing a drug which specifically fits on the configuration...

Vaccine to protect birds against avian flu, engineered

...ing in death. The adenovirus serves as vector or transporting vehicle for delivering the foreign genes or DNA of the HA protein. Dr. Gambotto's team took two sets of mice in one set they injected the genetically engineered vaccine and in the other an adenovirus vector containing no H5N1 genes, or an empty v...

Understanding the RNA binding protein and its functions inside the cell

...y aspect of RNA function. Their main functions are transporting RNA from one site to another inside the cell, translation of RNA into proteins and degrading the used RNA. The researchers studied using whole neurons from rodents to identify RNA interactions in live cells. A multi-talented molecule was made by th...

PFCAs Detected in the Artic

Limiting milk can hamper Babies’ Growt

...tamin D is vital in skeletal growth in addition to transporting calcium from the mother during pregnancy to the developing baby through the umbilical cord. The rising pressure among pregnant women to gain their pre pregnancy figures after birth is exemplified by the wide media coverage of celebrities such as, C...

Sperm Cells attracted By Ovary Scent, Even in Weakened State

...e the ability to generate a chemical gradient with transporting sperm cells to evaluate sperm chemotaxis," Jacobson said. "The use of microfluidic devices appears to be an ideal approach for precisely controlling the chemical gradient and accurately tracking chemotactic events. This combination led to greater rep...

What to do with the Dead if a Flu Outbreak Happens?

...es during this time would mean added complications transporting bodies and keeping refrigerated trucks cool. With funeral operators and medical examiners at the bottom of White House’s priority list for medicine and vaccine most of the burden of dealing with the dead would probably fall to local communities and t...

Discovery of Agile Molecular Motors Could Aid in Treating Motor Neuron Diseases

...e cell: working together, they are responsible for transporting cellular cargo from the periphery of a cell toward its nucleus. “My lab concentrates on the cellular and genetic aspects of the dynein-dynactin motor, while Yale’s group delves into the mechanics of the motor itself,” says Holzbaur. “We’re deconstr...

Fat Metabolism Of Heart Muscles Affected By High Blood Pressure

...with thickened heart muscle, genes associated with transporting and breaking down fatty acids are less active than normal -- in other words, the heart's fat-burning machinery is malfunctioning. In this human study, the researchers studied patients who had high blood pressure that resulted in hypertrophy of the m...

Health Hazards Faced By Small Children

...een escalator steps and the sidewall, and avoiding transporting children on stroller while on escalator have been recommended by authors to prevent such injuries. The final study found ice skating more dangerous than roller skating or in line skating in causing injuries to children. Researches have advised w...

Engineering Nutrient-Rich Plants Made For Feasible By New Findings

...oil. This Iron transporter is IRT1. In addition to transporting iron, IRT1 can also transport Manganese, Zinc, Cobalt and Cadmium. Thus, any attempts to increase Iron uptake via IRT1 must consider the transport of unwanted substrates such as Cadmium. Industrial, mining, and agricultural activities, particularl...

A New Approach to Heart Bypass Surgery Provides Patients with 'One-stop Shopping'

...d for an X-ray of the procedure would also require transporting patients from the third to the first floor. Finally, if any surgical intervention is needed after an X-ray is obtained, the patient would be transported back to the OR. Previously at Vanderbilt and still done elsewhere, physicians use what is label...

Lead With a Poisonous Electron Shield

...protein, plays an important role in regulating and transporting the calcium cation in the human body. A calcium ion binds to seven ligands at the active centers of the enzyme. If one of the four possible calcium ions of calmodulin is replaced by lead, the lead ion remains roughly heptacoordinated, but this active...

New Mechanism for Nutrient Uptake Discovered

...the cell's outer membrane. Each pore is capable of transporting nutrients individually, so we were really surprised to find that the pores simply can't act without stimulation from their neighbors." In earlier research the Carnegie scientists, with colleagues, identified the genes responsible for initiating nit...

Gene Test to Spot Adults Who Might Get Diabetes

... One of the five genes, SLC30A8, is involved in transporting the mineral zinc in the body, and is known to be involved in secreting insulin, a hormone that is important to metabolising sugar. As type 2 diabetes is associated with an insulin deficiency, it could be possible to treat it by fixing the faulty zi...
