Disease diagnosis, biodefense among UH chemical research projects

...roteins found in certain insects that store nitric oxide (NO). Having importance in many areas of human health, NO is useful in lowering blood pressure, treating cancer and increasing oxygen absorption in lung tissue. Czernuszewicz's research is focused on the roles of salivary nitrophorins in storing and ...

Researchers report new pro-inflammatory role for anti-inflammatory enzyme

Physical and functional interaction of key cell growth molecules linked to cancer

...ion leads increased expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). Although elevated iNOS is also a key characteristic of many human malignancies, there has previously been no direct connection made between EGFR and the iNOS/NO pathway. The researchers conclude that the complex formed by EGFR and S...

Breath of the dragon: ERS-2 and Envisat reveal impact of economic growth on China's air quality

...Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is associated with nitrogen oxide (NO) in the atmosphere and the sum of the two is called NOX. This is released into the troposphere from power plants, heavy industry and road transport, along with biomass burning, lightning in the atmosphere and microbial activity in the soil. The e...

Bare metal stents deliver gene therapy to heart vessels with less inflammation in animal studies

... gene that encodes for a protein, inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), in the carotid artery studies, because of iNOS's ability to control cell damage in blood vessels. "However, in further studies, one might use a combination of therapeutic genes or different gene vectors, for even better results," sai...

Phenolic compounds may explain Mediterranean diet benefits
