A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty

...puberty, the researchers also found that by giving animals kisspeptin they could, essentially wake up the reproductive hormones from their childhood hibernation. Within 30 minutes of kisspeptin being administered to male monkeys, LH, one of the hormones stimulated by GnRH secretion, was no longer dormant, wi...

Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

... the superbowl molecule has not yet been tested in animals or humans. Until then, no one knows yet when this experimental molecule will actually enter the consumer market, but any useful application is likely to take five to ten years, the researcher estimates. Administration of the molecule for drug deliver...

Spleen may be source of versatile stem cells

...kind of payback that can come fromstudies of lower animals like newts and sponges. Combining theknowledge of Hox11's role in those animals with what we'd found aboutislet cell regeneration in mice helped us find this previously unknownexam...

Lack of enzyme turns fat cells into fat burners

Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

...ein. "What we saw quite early in the life of those animals -- well before any plaque deposition -- were obvious axonal defects," said Goldstein. "We saw large swellings in their axons. And when we looked at those swellings using electron microscopy and biochemical markers, they looked just like the axonal tr...

Current human embryonic stem cell lines contaminated UCSD/Salk team finds

However, E.coli is also commonly associated with illnesses caused by eating undercooked beef or drinking contaminated water. Without access to the large collection of ba...

Goldstein and Musch say their findings could explain the problem. People with type 1 diabetes don't produce insulin. Without ...

Yale Scientists Find MicroRNA Regulates Ras Cancer Gene

... a regulator of Ras expression. DNA of plants and animals contains sequences encoding microRNAs, important regulators of development, that control processes determining cell type and cell death. "The let-7 microRNA regulates Ras by binding to the message for Ras and likely inhibits translation of the Ras p...

Mouse brain tumors mimic those in human genetic disorder

The researchers demonstrated that when they cause worm mitochondria to fragment without instructing cells to die, the cells still die and when they block fragmentation, the cells survive; in other words, blocking fragme...

For the current study, lead author John Kim, PhD, and his colleagues developed a strain of C. elegans into which they added a gene that caused the worms to glow under ultravi...
