...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...

...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...

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.

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...
