Gut research yields new anti-cancer approach

...urther experiments showed that high-dose PPARgamma inhibition destroyed cancer cell microtubules, protein structures that form part of the skeleton of cells. Beyond providing structural support and shape to cells, microtubules expand and shrink to generate the force needed for cells to divide, a basic proces...

Scientists find hormone activity explains adolescent mood swings

... regulates emotion. Paradoxically, THP reduced the inhibition produced by these alpha4-beta2-delta GABA-A receptors, increasing brain activity to produce a state of increased anxiety. Stress also increased anxiety at puberty, due to the paradoxical effects of this hormone that is released by stress. Dr. Smi...

...es the commanding signal from EGFR. Therefore, the inhibition of EGF receptor by cetuximab will not block the molecular signals that are activated farther down the cascade. The researchers also determined that KRAS mutations are independent of another predictive marker of cetuximab response, skin toxicity, w...

Erectile dysfunction in diabetes is due to selective defect in the brain

...rtic acid (NMDA) within the PVN. At the same time, inhibition of NO synthase with NG-monomethly-L-argining (L-NMMA) prevents NMDA-induced erection. The researchers hypothesized that the blunted NMDA mediated responses in diabetes reflects an impaired NO mechanism within the PVN. The involvement of an NO mechani...

Discovery of an HIV inhibitor in human blood points to new drug class

...lecules in human blood have been implicated in the inhibition of HIV-1, the researchers noted. However, it had remained elusive which circulating natural compounds are most effective in controlling viral replication in the body. In the new study, the researchers sifted through a comprehensive library of smal...

Small molecule dervived from Rb2/p130 could act as cancer therapeutic
