Critical role in programmed cell death identified

...ocked survive, at least in the lab, with their 131 extra cells. Such studies are impractical in mammals because cell death is essential and animals with a cell death defect die.

...u; slower is better." Besides the implication for extra sugar being stored (as fat) rather being used effectively, Dr. Agatston notes that with large sugar infusions, the body often produces too much insulin, which then lowers the blood sugar level. When that happens, he writes, "new cravings are created,...

Caloric restriction won't dramatically extend life span in humans: UCLA research

...nd life span. Phelan's conclusion is that the few extra years of life are not worth the suffering necessary to achieve them. "Do you want to spend decades severely limiting what you eat to live a few more years? You will be unhappy and then your life will end shortly after mine ends," Phelan jokes. Sci...

Slipping past the blood brain barrier: Research shows potential treatment for brain cancer

...lts. Researchers found that the P-gp system, an extra guardian located at the blood brain barrier that usually keeps anticancer drugs out of the brain, intercepted some of the JV-1-36 that was injected into mice but let much of it pass into the brain to treat cancer. "The blood brain barrier is set up ...

Mechanism regulating tooth shape formulation found

These results indicate that there is a delicate balance of induction and inhibition in determining tooth cusps and that ectodin is a key gene in this developmental control. The team confirmed the import...

The system takes advantage of the scarcity of the CG sequence, finding so-called CpG "islands" known to be more com...
