This approach, based on the studies of malaria transmission by mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles and human African trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness) by Glossinia species or tsetse flies, revealed that the antibody response can represent...

Newly discovered antibody may be body's natural defense against Alzheimer's

...ntists to speculate that oligomers may be the main culprit in Alzheimer's and therefore a prime target for a new generation of disease-modifying treatments. To further confirm that these natural antibodies bind with oligomers, Dr. Relkin and his colleagues collaborated with Drs. Charles Glabe and Rakez K...

Hopkins researchers discover how brain protein might control memory

...eing aware of 3-D space. In people, Arc may be one culprit behind certain long-term memory-based behaviors like drug addiction, the researchers say. "We think Arc controls how brain cells learn and associate behaviors and remember them over a long period of time," says Paul F. Worley, M.D., professor of ...

Leading reason for corneal transplants comes into focus

...us is putting us in the right neighborhood to find culprit genes," says Gottsch. "Now we have to start knocking on every door." Gottsch is heartened by success with earlier Fuchs gene-hunting studies. The Hopkins group tracked down its first FCD-related gene in a Virginia family with multiple, early onset...

Cell death following blood 'reflow' injury tracked to natural toxin

...ogy. To establish that PAR-polymer is indeed the culprit in the kind of reperfusion injuries long linked to heart attacks, strokes and a variety of blood vessel injuries, the researchers pumped mouse nerve cells full of PAR-polymer. The cells died, but to be sure PAR-polymer (and not something else) killed...

Scientists tie several cancers to common 'oncogene engine'

The culprit may be insulin-like growth factor (IGF), a protein that is released from the liver of animals -- including humans -- in response to growth hormone, circulates in the blood and makes its way into the animal's milk. IGF increases the sensitivity of the...

Nutrition a major factor in rise in twin pregnancies

The commonly held view that IVF is the only culprit in the steady increase in the numbers of twins born over the past thirty years was challenged by a scientist speaking at the 22nd annual conference of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Prague, Czech Republic, Wednesday 21 J...

'Dead zone' summer killed billions of ocean state mussels

...'s Narragansett Bay during the summer of 2001. The culprit was hypoxia, or oxygen depletion, which literally suffocates sea life. While some evidence of this "dead zone" could be seen on the bay's surface, Brown University ecologists went underwater and discovered a massive mussel die-off. In a survey of ni...

Gene increases risk of tuberculosis

...d. Flores-Villanueva and colleagues show that the culprit behind the increased susceptibility to TB was a small change in the gene that encodes a protein called MCP-1 (the MCP-1 gene resides of chromosome 17). The genetic change was a tiny one, with the DNA sequence differing by only a single nucleotide (t...
