Boffins Find Evidence for Novel Brain Cell Communication

...h as the heart and have been most studied in older vertebrates (such as fish) and in invertebrates (such as leeches and crabs). The current study provides the first electron microscopic evidence for gap junctions on the axons of excitatory nerve cells in the mammalian brain. Gap junctions at this site, on axo...

Sea Urchin Genome Similar To Man And May Cure Diseases

...ith humans. Sea urchins are closer to human and vertebrates from an evolutionary perspective than other more widely studied animal models, such as fruit fly or worms. The purple sea urchin, in fact, has 7,000 genes in common with humans, including genes associated with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’...

Limb Regeneration Exists Innately In All Vertebrates – Says Researc

... such regeneration may also exists innately in all vertebrates including human beings. Chop off a salamander's leg and a brand new one will sprout in no time. But most animals have lost the ability to replace missing limbs. Now, a research team at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has been able to rege...

Bacterial Protein Shows Promise in Treating Intestinal Parasites

The Hh proteins’ activity can be modulated by small molecules, according to the study, which gives rise to the possibility that drugs aimed at the fat pathway may be in existence already, while more could be made. The drugs whic...
