Cells re-energize to come back from the brink of death

...ed caspases. In turn, caspases trigger a series of events that kills the cell. Mitochondria are tiny structures that act as power plants to supply the cell with energy, but also hold the keys to the cells’ life and death. The process by which the membranes develop holes—mitochondrial outer membrane pe...

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

...sts that doctors not rush in to turn off molecular events that scientists have widely considered to be detrimental in people with the disease. The findings could also renew efforts to develop a vaccine or other strategies against Alzheimer’s by engaging the body’s immune system. The team expected to see ...

Now, self-healing materials can mimic human skin, healing again and again

...Ultimately, the ability to achieve further healing events is controlled by the availability of active catalyst,” said Kathleen S. Toohey, a U. of I. graduate student and lead author of the paper. “While we can pump more healing agent into the network, ‘scar tissue’ builds up in the coating and prevents the ...

Recently inflammation and infectious agents have been shown to play an important role in the onset of acute cardiovascular events. The online, open-access PLoS ONE publishes a...

Mice with a migraine show signs of brain damage

... team was able to get an unprecedented look at the events that happen in the brain of a mouse as a migraine unfolds. The team uncovered a complex, unexpected tale of supply and demand regarding blood flow and oxygen. In short, the team found that the brain develops a voracious demand for energy as the o...

Salk scientists hammer out a pathway that promotes muscle cell survival in mice

...explore the part this enzyme plays in a cascade of events triggered by exercise-induced hormones and other signals. In this particular pathway, a molecular switch turns on a set of muscle-specific genes in response to exercise by releasing a brake that normally keeps these genes off. Learning how this pat...

Traumas like Sept. 11 make brains more reactive to fear

Victims may experience lingering symptoms (bad dreams, jumpiness, thinking about the incident and avoiding the site of the t...

Baumann Lab defines proteins that distinguish chromosome ends from DNA double-strand breaks

The mechanisms that initiate and drive these events are only poorly understood, but it is widely accepted that loss of chromosome end protection can initiate genomic instability through bridge-breakage-fusion cycles. It is, therefore, very important to understand the mechanism of chromosome end protec...

A surge of stress hormones likely plays a role, he said, but it is also possible that a blood clot temporarily blocks a major artery of the heart, then dissolves before being detected du...

On average, the teachers had 1,800 occurrences of voicing per hour at work, compared to 1,200 per hour during non-work periods (for a total of as many as 20,000 per day). Voicing occurred 23 percent of...
