...ctions. Virtually all cells have mitochondria, and disruption of their function can cause a variety of diseases. "Our study showed the connection between the location of PanK2 in the mitochondria and its role in as a sensor of energy demand," said Yong-Mei Zhang, Ph.D., a researcher in the Infectious Diseas...

Penn study on lung-infecting bacterial enzyme suggests new approach to cystic fibrosis treatment

...that is defective in cystic fibrosis patients. The disruption to this protein that conveys ions from lung cells to airways causes thick mucus to buildup inside the lung. The finding suggests a new therapeutic target for treating lung infections in some cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Lung infection, facilitat...

Ethanol vehicles pose a significant risk to human health, study finds

...missions or greenhouse gases and cause very little disruption to the land-unlike ethanol made from corn or switchgrass, which will require millions of acres of farmland to mass-produce. It would seem prudent, therefore, to address climate, health and energy with technologies that have known benefits. '' ...

Minuscule molecules pack a powerful punch

...To uncover how miR-155 might cause such widespread disruption of the immune system, the team used genomic studies to identify protein genes whose activity was controlled by miR-155 in T-cells. Activity of more than 150 genes, with a large range of biological functions, was reduced by miR-155, demonstrating its ...

Chronic jet-lag conditions hasten death in aged mice
