Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

...n Department of Dentistry and an expert on using a class of viruses known as lentiviruses for use in gene therapy. The team used a lentivirus to boost levels of IL-1 beta in select brain regions of its engineered mouse, then applied the technology in mice specially designed to develop Alzheimer’s disease. ...

In mice, drug protects against diabetes and atherosclerosis

...ults suggest that targeting aP2 "can lead to a new class of powerful therapeutic agents to prevent and treat metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis." Said Hotamisligil, "This work turned out to be a perfect example of out-of-the box thinking, inter-institutional and inter-discipl...

Plastic that grows on trees

...rt fructose to HMF. Metal chlorides belong to a class of ionic-liquid-soluble materials called halides, which “in general work well for converting fructose to HMF,” Zhang said — but not so well when glucose is the initial stock. In fact, attempts at direct glucose conversion created so many impurities t...

Researchers demonstrate way to control tree height

...plant Arabidopsis, which inhibited the action of a class of plant-specific hormones known as gibberellic acids. These compounds are also used as sprays to control the size and fruiting of orchard trees. In trees, the compounds promote the elongation of plant cells – when they are inhibited, the cells do no...

New designer lipid-like peptide with lipid nanostructures for drug delivery systems

...ter-loving and water-hating, which represent a new class of designer materials using common amino acids, the same basic molecules from meat, beans and fruits. These lipid-like peptides have excellent potential to solubilize membrane proteins and enzymes, and - as now demonstrated - can also be utilized to...

Dinosaur hearing, listening to muscle noise, quieter cubicles

...new light on the behavior of this still-mysterious class of killer whales. (3aAB4) THE SOUNDSCAPE OF MODERNITY Acoustical developments in the 20th century forever altered the sounds that U.S. residents heard and their ways of listening. Modern acoustical inventions such as sound meters, microphones,...

Leukemia drug turns mini-molecules up, cancer genes down

...omyelocytic leukemia induces changes in an unusual class of small molecules called microRNAs (miRNAs) in the leukemic cells. The study also shows that three of these miRNAs inhibit the action of two genes important for cancer development, helping to explain how the drug works. The drug is called all-t...

Deconstructing brain wiring, one neuron at a time

...ice that will express specific genes in a targeted class of neurons, Callaway says. "All neurons of the type we select will then express the avian viral receptor and the rabies virus protein, allowing the modified rabies virus to infect targeted cells and spread only once to connecting cells," he adds. The...
