St. Jude study solves mystery of mammalian ears

... force for amplifying sound in mammals, this would mean that prestin is the reason mammals amplify sound so efficiently,” Zuo said. In the current study, Zuo and his team conducted a complex series of studies that showed in mammals that the role of somatic mobility driven by prestin is not simply to mod...

Studies force new view on biology of flavonoids

...fectual as antioxidants in the human body does not mean they are without value, Frei said. They appear to strongly influence cell signaling pathways and gene expression, with relevance to both cancer and heart disease. "We can now follow the activity of flavonoids in the body, and one thing that is cle...

Glucose triggers brain cell death in rats after hypoglycemic coma
