Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

...ne highly active version of the superbowl molecule goes by the name tetrabromo-superbowl (C268H320O52Br4) due to the addition of four bromine atoms. The bromine atoms make the hole at the top of the molecule smaller, which makes it more difficult for things to pass in and out. This is ideal if you're tryi...

Bioartificial kidney under study at MCG

...stuff that isn't pumped out is just like urine: it goes in the toilet," Dr. Szerlip says. Preliminary findings on 10 patients at the University of Michigan Medical Center and Cleveland Clinic Foundation showed the device was safe and produced desired results such as reducing circulating inflammatory medi...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

... Speculation that iron provided part of the answer goes back to the 1930s. However, it wasn't until 1989 in the journal Nature that oceanographer John Martin reported the first series of iron experiments that indicated iron was indeed the missing ingredient. And he went further than that. Since growing pl...

Genome-wide mouse study yields link to human leukemia

...cute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The mouse first goes through a pre-leukemic stage marked by rapidly expanding T cells and natural killer cells, both major components of the immune system. In comparing the mice in the pre-leukemic stage and those with ALL with normal mice, researchers found that methyl...

Researchers reveal the infectious impact of salmon farms on wild salmon

... Myers of the University of Dalhousie. "This study goes far beyond a theoretical model. They tested the model in the real world, using an enormous data set, and saw the same patterns. It is a very thorough analysis." "We've tried to be very careful and conservative ?but there is potential for a major imp...

Researchers identify target for cancer drugs

...en a cell loses PTEN through, say, a mutation, Akt goes gangbusters," says Sabatini. The exact means by which Akt switches on when it reaches the cell membrane has only been partially understood. As a result, researchers have lacked a clear idea about how to prevent the process. However, in the February ...

Weill Cornell Research Reveals Secrets Of Trafficking Within Cells

...hat can happen when clathrin-regulated endocytosis goes wrong. The findings, already published online, will appear in the April print edition of Molecular Biology of the Cell, whose editors have chosen to highlight the Weill Cornell research due to its quality and broader significance to the field.

Studies reveal methods viruses use to sidestep immune system

...ime completely defining the signaling pathway that goes from RIG-I all the way down to IRF-3," Dr. Gale said. "Once we've done that, we hope to identify parts of the pathway to target with drugs to try to limit infection." Drugs called protease inhibitors currently are used to treat patients infected wit...

First real-time view of developing neurons reveals surprises, say Stanford researchers

...rstanding how neurons mature into their adult role goes beyond zebra fish and their ability to see their eventual planktonic prey. "Probably these same processes are happening in our own brains all the time," Niell said. When people learn new skills or add memories to their overstuffed brains, new connect...

Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor

Mayo Clinic Researchers Create 'Obedient Virus'; First Step To Use Measles Virus Against Cancer

... area was at an impasse. Not any more. "The virus goes where it's meant to go, and it destroys the tumors in a targeted way," says Dr. Russell. Background Biology Natural viruses are cellular parasites. To reproduce more viruses, they need to bind to a partner on their target cell, fuse membranes to en...

Chemists identify immune system mechanism for methamphetamine binges

...Methamphetamine is a powerful psychostimulant that goes by a number of common names, including "speed," "ice" and "crank." It is often made in make-shift laboratories using over-the-counter drug ingredients, particularly cold and allergy medicines. Available as a powder or crystal, the drug can be injecte...

HIV-1 spread through six transmission lines in the UK

...ssion, introduced in the early and mid 1980s. This goes against the prevailing belief that one initial entry of HIV-1 was responsible for the spread of the epidemic. “Since 1990 there have been important changes in Britain's social attitudes and awareness of HIV-1 and AIDS. Despite a very recent increase...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

...cids pile up in the ER membrane, or when something goes wrong with the folding process, the entire system can get clogged with unfolded proteins. To prevent this, the cell activates the unfolded protein response (UPR). "The UPR has three main aspects," Kaufman explains. "First, it signals the nucleus to ...

"Once melanoma has moved into its vertical phase, it is almost untreatable because by the time the tumors are large enough to detect, it's too late," Lanza says. "With the nanoparticles, we believe we would be a...
