"Additionally, because the region of this receptor that interacts with PIP2 is found in many similar membrane proteins, we now have a new lead in inve...

Stem Cell Research Shows Potential for Replacing Tissue Damaged in Heart Attacks

...ytes, which are found in the myocardium tissue, or heat muscles, that helps pump the chambers of the heart. “After a patient has a heart attack, significant numbers of these cardiac myocytes die, and the damaged heart muscle is replaced by scar tissue that isn’t able to contract and help the heart beat....

McGill researchers shed light on formation of carcinogen in food

... when amino acids or sugars are broken down by the heat of cooking," explains Dr. Yaylayan. "Normally, furan is a volatile chemical which tends to quickly evaporate. However, when it cannot escape for some reason, for example if it is in sealed cans or jars, then it remains present in the food for some ti...

Researchers make headway in mystery of migraines

... along nerve cells. Like an air conditioner in the heat of summer, the sodium pump is a massive energy hog, consuming around 30% of the energy produced by the cell in order to perform this vital cellular process. Of particular interest in this study is that some mutations cause migraines by reducing sodi...

Modified collagen could yield important medical applications

... scientists have altered collagen by using intense heat or chemical reactions, techniques that may damage the protein or limit its safe use in humans. Yu's method, however, requires only physical mixing of collagen with even smaller molecules called collagen mimetic peptides. "That's the beauty of this,"...
