How sneaky HIV escapes cells

...lls make HIV and other retroviruses by a naturally occurring export mechanism,” says Stephen Gould, Ph.D., Professor of Biological Chemistry at Johns Hopkins. Cells normally export certain membrane-bound molecules to the outside world by means of small sacs known as exosomes. By studying human T-cells under a ...

New study reports hotel guests at risk from carbon monoxide poisoning

...the researchers found 68 incidents of CO poisoning occurring at hotels, motels, and resorts between 1989 and 2004. In these incidents, 711 guests, 41 employees or owners and 20 rescue personnel were accidentally poisoned. Of those poisoned, 27 died, 66 developed pathological conditions, and 6 had conditions re...

The newly found antibodies selectively target aggregates of beta amyloid proteins called "oligomers" that are toxic to brai...

ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration

First confirmed common genetic risk factors for breast cancer

...l versions of these genes help prevent cancer from occurring in the first place, by helping cells to repair DNA breaks and other abnormalities that can result from chance or exposure to an environmental toxin, such as excessive UV sunlight. However, BRCA-1, BRCA-2 and the other previously identified breast can...

Want to save polar bears? Follow the ice

...hich of the existing 18 populations of polar bears occurring on two continents and one sub-continent stand the best chance of surviving as the polar cap shrinks in size. To that end, the project will utilize remote sensing satellite imagery on sea ice extent and concentration since 1978 to form a picture of po...

Nitric oxide: Key to cardiovascular and pulmonary function and drug effectiveness

A naturally occurring molecule in the body appears to control whether certain medications, such as beta adrenergic receptor agonists used in acute heart failure or in inhalers for asthma, lose their effectiveness over time. Nitric oxide is a molecule produced by the body...

Chemical maps hint at drug's effects on schizophrenia
