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

...s to recognize and communicate with other cells or get nutrients. Cells also communicate with one another via small, membrane-bound vesicles that contain proteins or other molecular cargo. When delivering their goods, vesicles from one cell fuse with the outermost membrane of another cell to form a serie...

The bird listening stations are part of the exhibition “Inside/Outside: Habitat” on view at the Abington Arts Center’s Sculpture Park in Jenkintown, Pa., through Wednes...

Cellular message movement captured on video

...“When we piece all of these things together we can get a more complete understanding of how the cell functions, both in migration and signal transduction,” said Chien. “If we can understand the details of these processes, we can not only understand how normal cells function, but we can also look at disea...

Agent slows aging in mice

...n the control group have died, the scientists will get answers to the really burning question: Will the mice fed NDGA, already well past middle age, live past the normal outer limit of old age" The longest that mice of this type usually live is around 1,000 to 1,100 days. “If NDGA turns out to extend...

Enzyme delivered in smaller package protects cells from radiation damage

...nSOD in this very small vector, we will be able to get this radioprotective enzyme more efficiently into all of the cells of the body and give patients receiving total body radiation for systemic cancers better long-term outcomes. This also has implications for the prophylactic protection of those who ma...

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

...heimer’s disease, protecting the brain and helping get rid of clumps of material known as plaques that are a hallmark of the disease. While many scientists have assumed that inflammation as a result of disease or injury only adds to the brain’s woes, the new findings show that the opposite may be true...

"We take a different view. We believe that even in the absence of an external stimulus, there are very important processes going ...

Simulations unravel outer membrane transport mechanism

...onB-dependent transporter, Gumbart said. “As we get more computational power, we’re looking less at single proteins and more and more at the interaction of proteins,” he said. “And this is going in the direction of what’s called systems biology. This is essential because none of these proteins actuall...

Hormone helps mice 'hibernate,' survive starvation

...acts these processes. “We want to see if we can get some benefits of eating less without actually eating less,” he said. Manipulating the PPAR-alpha-FGF21 signaling pathway might ultimately prove to be a vital part of the ongoing search for new therapies for human obesity and other metabolic condit...

ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration

...dividuals cannot produce them ad nausea and try to get mates,” said McGraw. “The reason typically is that long tails and fancy dances incur costs. Testosterone, for example, has been thought of as a double-edged sword as it relates to sexual signals, because it enhances trait production but comes at a he...
