Nicotine rush hinges on sugar in neurons

...gar is kind of like a hinge. It’s pulling the door open and closed.” Cutting the sugar chains stopped the gate’s operation, according to Chen, who said, “The sugar is critical, in my opinion.” The researchers also found a water molecule deep in the receptor’s core – significant because proteins normal...

Simulations unravel outer membrane transport mechanism

...ding, changing its conformation in ways that would open up enough space for a molecule of vitamin B12 to pass through the barrel. (Click on the link below the image of the system to watch the results of the simulation.) A second simulation exerted a force near the center of gravity of the luminal domai...

Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

...osition of this data set in the public domain will open a new era in Alzheimer research. When a scientist suspects a particular gene or pathway maybe implicated in Alzheimer’s disease, they will use these data to see if there is genetic evidence supporting their idea. Reviewing these data in an hour will...

Migration alert -- How tumor cells home in on the lymphatic system

...of functional lymphatics. This research could open new avenues for combating metastasis, says Swartz. “It implies that if a lymphatic was blocked, tumor cells would be less attracted to it. This means that tumor cells “know” which lymphatic vessels will be more effective routes for dissemination,” s...

Study shows lizard moms dress their children for success

...Aggressive orange males spend a lot of time in the open and need stripes to help them escape from predators (the optical effect of stripes on fast-moving prey makes them hard to catch). But the genes that control behavior and back pattern are not linked, so a lizard could end up with a mismatch that w...

Plastic that grows on trees

...hang said. “The key is to take advantage of the open form to perform a hydride transfer through which glucose is converted to fructose.” Zhang’s next step is to tinker with ionic solvents and metal halides combinations to see if he can increase HMF yield from glucose while reducing separation and pu...

Staphylococcus aureus hides out in cells

...low to avoid detection. New research in the online open access journal BMC Genomics shows how S. aureus makes itself at home in human lung cells for up to two weeks. A team of 12 researchers from University Hospital of Geneva, Switzerland and the Institute of Food Research, Norwich, UK set out to uncover...

The kapok connection -- Study explains rainforest similarities

... the process. When the seed pods ripen, they break open to reveal fluffy fibers that are used to stuff pillows and mattresses. The seeds, which are about the size of a sunflower seed, are buoyant and able to float down rivers along which the colossal trees grow. Dick and colleagues investigated which o...

Gene therapy study shows safety and statistically significant improvement in Parkinson's disease

The open label Phase 1 study, conducted in 12 patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease demonstrated both a lack of adverse events related to the gene therapy procedure and statistically significant improvements from baseline in both clinical symptoms and ab...

Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin

...ets into a living animal, via contaminated food or open wounds, leading to infant botulism or wound botulism, both of which are serious human infections. The host can be quickly overpowered and, in some cases, killed by the toxin, and C. botulinum has a new food source. "Although in the same group as ...

Avian influenza survivors' antibodies effective at neutralising H5N1 strain

... of researchers. In a study published today in the open access journal PLoS Medicine, the researchers have shown how specific antibodies taken from avian flu survivors in Vietnam can be reproduced in the laboratory and prove effective at neutralising the virus in culture vitro and in mice. The H5N1 influ...

Arctic ice retreating more quickly than computer models project

...ct, are disappearing. In contrast, darker areas of open water, which are expanding, absorb sunlight and increase temperatures. This feedback loop has played a role in the increasingly rapid loss of ice in recent years, which accelerated to 9.1 percent per decade from 1979 to 2006 according to satellite ob...

Amphibians in losing race with environmental change

...e: Many amphibians lay their eggs in shallow, open water in direct sunlight to provide a more oxygenated environment, increase growth rate of larvae and reduce predation. But the increased levels of UV-B radiation in today's sunlight, due to erosion of the Earth's ozone layer, is causing mutations, i...

The sound of proteins

Rie Takahashi and Jeffrey H. Miller from the University of California, Los Angeles, USA, have so far transcribed segments of two hum...

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

...chers said these findings, if confirmed in humans, open up new avenues for the development of non-desensitizing drugs not only for heart failure and asthma but also for other conditions such as pain and high blood pressure. "We demonstrated that when one of the systems goes awry, so does the other," sa...

Risk of lymphoma increases with hepatitis C virus infection
