Have a taste for fat? Yes! A sensor in the mouth promotes preference for fatty foods
...igestive physiology. CD36 gene inactivation fully abolishes
both the spontaneous preference for fat and the changes in gastrointenstinal secretions mediated by oral delivery of lipids. These findings unveil one potential pathway mediating fat taste. The data suggest that an alteration in the fat perception ...
Stomach receptor for H. pylori discovered
...ls," says Peek. "Further, absence of this receptor abolishes
the inflammatory response that H. pylori induces in infected mice, suggesting that this receptor mediates H. pylori-induced injury in the stomach." These findings suggest that drugs that interfere with DAF binding could be used to prevent or treat p...
Researchers shed light on shrinking of chromosomes
...lly involved in this process. Blocking this enzyme abolishes
late condensation of chromosomes. They now hope to uncover the detailed molecular mechanism underlying the late shortening of chromosomes. This could further advance our understanding of cell division and the risk factors that lead to defects in chro...
