Prenatal Stress Keeps Infants, Toddlers up at Night, Study Says

...d until he or she was 30 months old. A similar effect was found in children born to mothers who were depressed during pregnancy. These prenatal mood disturbances worked as reliable predictors of childrens sleep problems even when investigators controlled data for other factors already linked with po...

St. Jude study solves mystery of mammalian ears

...that is, raised or lowered the cilia. There was no effect on amplification. The researchers concluded that somatic motility was not simply a way to make cilia do their job better; rather, there is no connection between the hair cell contractions and how the cilia do their job. Instead, somatic motility, gen...

Carnegie Mellon scientists find key HIV protein makes cell membranes bend more easily

...rnegie Mellon scientists used X-rays to detect the effect of FP-23 on lipid bilayers that mimic cell membranes. Lipid bilayers form different phases that change with temperature, but the “fluid” phase is the most biologically relevant. Using X-ray diffuse scattering, the team quantified structural propertie...

Agent slows aging in mice

... this point. “We don’t know how NDGA is having its effect on survival in this first analysis,” Miller says. “It may be that the female mice because of their hormonal status have other pathways to death and disability, or need higher or lower levels of NDGA to see an effect.” The large, carefully co...

Pregnant mom's exposure to flu vaccine kick-starts fetal immune system

... the mother has been exposed, and this may have an effect on the development of allergic sensitivity (e.g. eczema and asthma) later in an infant’s life. However this hypothesis has remained controversial because of an inability to detect antigen-specific T cells in cord blood. Recently, a newly developed te...

Cigarette smoke alters DNA in sperm, genetic damage could pass to offspring

...tations accumulate and the more likely a potential effect may arise in the offspring,” Yauk said. According to Yauk, previous studies have shown that Ms6-hm and similar locations of non-coding DNA are sensitive to damage from radiation, mutagenic chemicals and intense industrial air particulate pollutio...

...hat seems abnormal. Easing that may have a bigger effect on suffering.” Chronic pain is not caused by a single mechanism, Apkarian noted. Sensory abnormalities in people with chronic pain probably drive this memory abnormality. About 10 percent of the United States population suffers from chronic pai...

U-M researchers discover gene switched off in cancer can be turned on

...ing HDAC inhibitors did return BRM expression, the effect was short-lived. Once the drugs were taken away, BRM expression decreased. “The HDAC inhibitors are not the perfect answer, but in principle this tells us we can turn our gene back on. If we can turn the gene back on, it may not be a cure for canc...

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

...year. While this study may provide a signal of the effect of IVIG therapy to clinical outcomes, further investigation in larger controlled and longer-term trials will be needed to definitively demonstrate whether IVIG is useful in treating Alzheimer's. Still, this discovery substantially boosts our unde...

Researchers shed light on mechanism of action used by anti-cancer drug

...s associated with increased protein loads. The net effect of these actions was to induce a shutdown of protein synthesis accompanied by a dramatic increase in cell death. “The notion that sorafenib acts by inhibiting protein synthesis and reducing expression of Mcl-1 suggests that this agent might be lo...

Better understanding gene oscillation may provide researchers with clues for developing ways to treat people who overeat because of impaired leptin signaling. Circadian rhythms are biological rhythms t...
