Poor prenatal nutrition permanently damages function of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas

...n stayed about the same, regardless of the glucose level in the bloodstream. "That surprised us," Dr. Patti said. "The problem was not insulin resistance. It had something to do with insulin secretion." By contrast, babies who are born overweight (greater than 8 pounds) have higher risk of insulin resistan...

Controversial drug shown to act on brain protein to cut alcohol use

...y have determined that it does so byincreasing the level of a brain protein known as glial cellline-derived neurotrophic factor, or GDNF. In a separate study, theydemonstrated that GDNF by itself decreases alcohol consumption.The research is being published in the January 19 issue of The Journalof Neurosci...

Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

...rting proteins. "We made a modest reduction in the level of a motor protein called kinesin-1 in the mice, and we got a considerable increase in plaque production and plaque deposition," said Goldstein. "This makes it clear there is some mechanistic connection between the transport deficit and plaque deposi...

Genome of deadly amoeba shows surprising complexity, evidence of lateral gene transfer
