UC Davis researchers move biotechnology closer to replacing electronic pacemakers

...mal models such as mice and rats, whose hearts can beat up to 600 times per minute. Large animals such as pigs make for far more realistic models because their anatomy and physiology, including average heart rates of about 70 to 80 beats per minute, are similar to humans. In the current study, research...

Honey helps problem wounds

Study in Science holds promise for a new approach to drug therapy

...t muscle cells, a similar mechanism controls heart beat rate. Many current, best-selling drugs work by binding to G-protein-coupled transmembrane receptors in the place of ligands on the outside of cells.
