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...
