Honeydew honeys are better antioxidants than nectar honeys

...ive diseases and aging. They operate by mopping up potentially damaging free radicals that are released in the body. Honey is one source of antioxidants. The composition of honey depends greatly on where honeybees collect their raw materials. There are two key types of source. First, honeybees can collect nec...

Killing the messenger RNA -- But which one?

..., by the microRNAs. It was. Then they chose one potentially affected gene at random to explore the ramifications of microRNA editing in depth. As it turned out, the gene they selected, known as PRPS1, codes for an essential enzyme involved in synthesizing uric acid. If levels of the enzyme are poorly regulate...

A revolution in the monitoring of unborn babies

...’s heart. They can then intervene if necessary and potentially save their lives. The fetal monitor is the result of years of collaborative work between engineers and doctors at the University. The original research was carried out by Dr John Crowe and Dr Barrie Hayes-Gill in the School of Electrical and Elec...

Protein may hold key to decreasing organ dysfunction rates in heart transplants

...entified a protein known as Lipocalin-2 (Lcn-2) as potentially responsible for regulating the body's inflammatory response during heart transplants. One of the major complications involved with many transplantations is the damage done to the transplanted heart during and immediately following surgery, known as i...

Fish can determine their social rank by observation alone, study finds

...elative strength of rivals before engaging them in potentially costly fights should be highly adaptive." When A. burtoni males fight, it's easy to spot the winner. Mature males have a menacing black stripe, or eyebar, on their face. After a fight, the winner retains his showy appearance, but the loser's eyeba...

Colour sensor breath test can detect lung cancer

...could revolutionise the way cancer is detected and potentially save lives, say the authors. The test comprises a chemical colour sensor, which detects tiny changes in the unique chemical signature of the breath of people with lung cancer. Metabolic changes in lung cancer cells cause changes in the producti...

Vaccine to cope with viral diversity in HIV

...says Nickle. These short-length immunogens are potentially useable in a vaccine, as they reflect the diversity of features in HIV-1 strains. These immunogens should elicit immune responses against high frequency viral strains as well as against most mutant forms of the virus. ...

UCLA: How does your brain respond when you think about gambling or taking risks?

.... What happens in our brain when we think about potentially losing money? Some of the same areas that get turned on when we think about winning money get turned off when we think about losing money. A surprising finding is that as the amount of a potential loss increases, the parts of the brain that proces...

'Exercise pill' switches on gene that tells cells to burn fat

...c proof of concept that metabolic engineering is a potentially viable approach, it offers no help to an adult whose muscles are already formed and who now would benefit greatly from having more active, fat-burning muscles. That is why the potential of chemical metabolic engineering - possibly a one-a-day pi...

HIV dementia alarmingly high in Africa

...ke-induced dementia, HIV dementia is treatable and potentially reversible with the same antiretroviral medication that is used to treat the infection. Treatment can even restore completely normal cognitive function to some of those affected. The study looked at 178 subjects in Kampala, Uganda, from September...

Decoy pill saves brain cells

...k loop that stoked calpain activation. "This is potentially a treatment for any conditions that involve this kind of excitotoxicity," Baudry said, and especially, he added, for the "window of opportunity" in the few hours after a stroke. While a stroke kills some brain cells right away, others take much lo...

Mechanical 'artificial hearts' can remove need for heart transplant by returning heart to normal

... severely failing hearts to their normal function, potentially removing the need for heart transplantation, according to new research. The mechanical devices, known as Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVADs), are currently used in patients with very severe heart failure whilst they await transplantation. The ne...

ASU researchers test antibacterial effects of healing clays
