In mice, drug protects against diabetes and atherosclerosis

...locking a single protein with an experimental drug prevented and treated both type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis in laboratory mice that had been fed unhealthy diets and were genetically predisposed to these common killers, according to an article published online at Nature on June 6, 2007. The team was led b...

Researchers shed light on mechanism of action used by anti-cancer drug

...nib, by virtue of its ability to inhibit Raf, also prevented an increase in expression of a chaperone protein known as Grp78, which is classically induced in the ER stress response, and which helps to resolve stresses associated with increased protein loads. The net effect of these actions was to induce a shut...

Penn researchers link cell's protein recycling systems

...mply expressing extra HDAC6, neurodegeneration was prevented in flies with proteasome impairment. Taylor’s group then moved on to fly models of human neurodegenerative disease and showed that they, too, are rescued by over-expression of HDAC6. Therefore, the researchers suggest that the level of the HDAC6 ...

New vaccine prevents CMV infection and disease in mice

...mice, the vaccine not only fought the disease, but prevented the infection from being established in the first place,” Morello said. Researchers at UCSD hope to begin pre-clinical work on development of a human vaccine. If successful, an FDA-approved, commercially licensed hCMV vaccine could be administer...

Avian influenza survivors' antibodies effective at neutralising H5N1 strain

... of virus found in the lungs and almost completely prevented the virus reaching the brain or spleen. In those people in Vietnam who died from the H5N1 strain, the virus was found to have spread from the lungs; this was not the case in those who survived. "We have shown that this technique can work to preven...

Genetic roots of bipolar disorder revealed by first genome-wide study of illness

Lithium is still the primary treatment for bipolar disorder, but DGKH is a promising target for new treatments ...

Baumann Lab defines proteins that distinguish chromosome ends from DNA double-strand breaks

...s not act on telomeres. But how repair factors are prevented from acting at chromosome ends has been a hotly debated issue. Over the past decade, several telomeric complexes and structures have been identified and proposed to protect chromosome ends, but conclusive evidence that any of these are required for p...

Iowa State scientists demonstrate first use of nanotechnology to enter plant cells

...p the nanoparticles. These "golden gates" not only prevented chemical leakage, but also added weight to the nanoparticles, enabling their delivery into the plant cell with the standard gene gun. The biologists successfully used the technology to introduce DNA and chemicals to Arabidopsis, tobacco and corn ...

Deconstructing brain wiring, one neuron at a time

...placed with its equivalent from a bird virus. This prevented the modified rabies virus from infecting mammalian neurons at all ?unless they had been engineered to express the bird virus's receptor, a bird cell surface protein known as TVA. Such neurons will then be "disguised" as bird cells and the rabies viru...

Rare cell prevents rampant brain activity

...euron in the cerebral cortex ?the pyramid cell ?is prevented from becoming over-activated. Their results show that a rarer cell type that links collections of pyramid cells ?called a Martinotti cell ?acts as a kind of safety device. When a Martinotti cell receives signals above a certain frequency, it responds...

Glucose triggers brain cell death in rats after hypoglycemic coma

...overed that oxidative stress and neuron death were prevented when the rats were given an inhibitor of NADPH oxidase, indicating a key role for this enzyme. "It is well-established that mitochondria can be a source of oxidative stress," says Swanson. "But in this setting, oxidative stress comes from an ent...

Scientists find genes involved in the battle between Hessian flies and wheat

This "fly-free date" is set in different regions according to climate. The study represents a step in understanding the complexity of antioxidant defense responses during interac...

New compound prevents alcoholic behavior, relapse in animals by blocking stress response

Yet the compound did not affect their native curiosity or lower levels of drinking alcohol in rats that were not alcohol-dependent. In addi...

Study finds surfing safer than soccer

...Significant" injuries were qualified as those that prevented the surfer from surfing for one or more days, resulted in a hospital visit, or required on-site suturing. "Sprains and strains to the lower extremities, particularly the knees, were found to be the most common injuries reported. This is likely due...

Remote sheep population resists genetic drift

"This herd certainly challenges our understanding of genetic drift," he said. "And I think it shows us...

Angelman syndrome deficits rescued in mice

...herlands ?had created a mouse with a mutation that prevented this inhibition of CaMKII. The researchers decided to breed the Angelman mice with the CaMKII mutant mice to see if counteracting the CaMKII inhibition would alleviate the neurological problems. The researchers then ran the resulting "double mu...

Scientists discover how body fights to control spread of cancer

Scientists have now discovered how this protective shield is broken down, allowing cancer to s...

Smoking ban dramatically reduces air pollution in Irish pubs

Although Dr. Godfrey admits that the impact of the Irish ban has been "enormous," she also highlights several "important caveat[s]" to the study's findings. While the health of ex- and non-smoking barmen improved si...
