Fast and slow -- How the spinal cord controls the speed of movement

... we know the pattern, we can begin to ask how that changes in disease states." David McLean, Cornell postdoctoral researcher in Fetcho’s laboratory, was the first person to discover the pattern of neural activation and how it was associated with speed of movement. He is the lead author on the study. Th...

Proteasome activator enhances survival of Huntington's disease neuronal model cells

...nisms in HD. The manuscript shows that cellular changes due to expression of huntingtin protein with longer CAG repeats can reduce the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS) function in Huntington¡¦s disease cells. Following compromise of the UPS, the overexpression of proteasome activator PA28 can specificall...

New success in engineering plant oils

... oil composition so drastically by simple specific changes in seed oil metabolism, and that this process can occur independently from the adaptation to either tropical or temperate climates." For example, such a technique could lead to the engineering of temperate crop plants to produce saturated oils as ...

Gut research yields new anti-cancer approach

...e cell skeleton rigid and unable to make the shape changes necessary for cell division. Brought to the market by Bristol-Myers Squibb in 1993, Taxol had annual sales of $1.6 billion at its peak in 2000.

Mechanism of nicotine's learning effects explored

... “spike-timing-dependent potentiation?that governs changes in strength of signaling connections among neurons. What’s more, the researchers traced this effect to nicotine’s action on specific kinds of neurons, called GABAergic neurons, in the learning centers. In turn, the effects on GABAergic neurons affect...

Changes in amino acids in the 1918 influenza virus cut transmission

Modest changes in the 1918 flu virus's hemagglutinin receptor binding site—a molecular structure critical for the spread of infection—stopped viral transmission in ferrets, according to a new study conducted by researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and at t...
