Scientists ID molecular 'switch' in liver that triggers harmful effects of saturated and trans fats

...l signals. The result is an upsurge in the liver's production of very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, the precursor of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (known as the "bad" form of cholesterol) and triglycerides ?another fatty substance ?that are secreted into the bloodstream. PGC-1beta bel...

Inflammatory molecules released by pollen trigger allergies

... birch pollen and other common allergens block the production of a soluble protein by immune cells that normally inhibits allergic reactions. They went on to identify the compound in the pollen extracts that caused the inhibitory response and showed that it was similar to certain pro-inflammatory molecules prod...

Study finds more than one-third of human genome regulated by RNA

Researchers reveal the infectious impact of salmon farms on wild salmon

...aching," says lead author Marty Krkosek. "Sea lice production from the farm we studied was four orders of magnitude - 30,000 times - higher than natural. These lice then spread out around the farm. Infection of wild juvenile salmon was 73 times higher than ambient levels near the farm and exceeded ambient level...

In the New Phytologist study, the scientists asked how plants deal with an external stress, such as an insect attack. "We know that plants respond defensively to attacks...

Plant hemoglobins: Oxygen handlers critical for nitrogen fixation

...Plant Physiology have succeeded in eliminating the production of symbiotic hemoglobins in nodules of the model legume Lotus japonicus, enabling researchers to assess for the first time the role and importance of these proteins in plants. The results of the study indicate that symbiotic hemoglobins are important...
