Researchers discover way to make cells in the eye sensitive to light

...d melanopsin. When the mice lackingmelanopsin were exposed to low light, their pupillary response was thesame as normal mice, but when they were exposed to bright light theirpupil constriction was incomplete.The researchers believe that while not a cure...

Source of molecular triggers in cutaneous T cell lymphoma identified

...hat are pre-programmed to respond to self-antigens exposed during normal cell death. As cells undergo the process of apoptosis, cryptic -- or masked -- antigens, are uncovered. Those newly available antigens are presented by LC directly to CTCL receptors, stimulating the malignant cells rapidly divide. "Thi...

...lluted groundwater to the surface, where it can be exposed to chemical catalysts or microorganisms that break the TCE down into less toxic or non-toxic constituents. In general, chemical catalysis offers faster reactions times than bioremediation schemes but also tends to be more expensive. One of the major...

Transplantation Of Monkey Embryonic Stem Cells Reverses Parkinson Disease In Primates

...erated neurons frommonkey embryonic stem cells and exposed these cells to FGF20, a growthfactor that is produced exclusively in the area of the brain affectedby Parkinson disease and is reported to have a protective effect on DAneurons. The authors observed increased DA neuron development andsubsequently tra...

Inflammatory molecules released by pollen trigger allergies

Pollen from plants exposed to air pollutants produce more of these allergy-provoking compounds than do pollen from unpolluted areas, possibly explaining why allergies are more prevalent in places with high levels of car exhaust emissions.

Research on Worms Yields Clues on Aging

...on University School ofMedicine in St. Louis. When exposed to drugs used to treat epilepsy inhumans, worms lived longer and retained youthful functions longer thannormal.Because the drugs affect nerve signals, the researchers' observationssuggest that the nervous system influences aging processes. Thefinding...

Female sex hormones play a vital role in defense against sexually transmitted diseases

... mice were treated with hormones but, before being exposed to the real herpes virus, they received a vaccine Surprisingly, unlike in the first study, the progesterone-treated mice and the mice that received no hormones were the most protected. About half the mice in the combination hormone group were also p...

Purdue proves concept of using nano-materials for drug discovery

... making the treatment less effective. Cancer cells exposed to chemotherapy drugs produce a disproportionately large number of the pumps, causing the cells to become progressively more resistant to anticancer drugs. Engineers and scientists in the Purdue center are trying to find drugs that deactivate the pu...

Ahrens' new MRI reporter alters the magnetic field in its proximity, causing nearby protons to give off a distinctly different signal. The resulting image ...

Self-assembled nano-sized probes allow Penn researchers to see tumors through flesh and skin

...he surface of a specific type of tumor cells. When exposed to near-infrared light, which can travel through tissue, the fluorophores within the polymersome respond with a bright near-infrared signal that can then be detected. "The fluorophores function like reflectors stuck in the spokes of a bicycle tire,"...
