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

... The healthier polyunsaturated fats are those that remain liquid at room temperature, such as various types of vegetable oils. Trans-unsaturated fatty acids, or trans fats, are artificially produced solid fats used in shortening and margarine, baked goods, and the oils used to cook french fries and other f...

...rize that a pocket of these uncommitted cellsmight remain in the spleen though adulthood. In addition toregeneration of islets, these cells might also produce bone cells -suggested by findings from other researchers - or potentially evencells of the nervous system, development of which depends on thecorrect...

Researchers discover way to make cells in the eye sensitive to light

...anglion cells, thecells which signal to the brain, remain intact. The researchers believethat by activating the melanopsin, these cells may gain the ability tosense and respond to light.Professor Mark Hankins, from Imperial College London and Charing CrossHospital, and one of the papers authors, comments: "...

It's not all genetic: Common epigenetic problem doubles cancer risk in mice

...rly turns on the copy of the IGF2 gene that should remain off. Unlike most genes, the copy of IGF2 that should be silent depends only on which parent it came from, a situation called genomic imprinting. For IGF2, the copy inherited from the mother is always supposed to be turned off. In the mice and in so...

Researchers Uncover Key Step In Manufacture of Memory Protein

...ansported to the cell’s outer membrane, where they remain until they are ready to be secreted. Once the cell receives an electrical signal from another neuron, these vesicles fuse with the cell’s outer membrane, open up, and release mBDNF. During their research, Dr. Loh and her colleagues observed mice gen...

Learning to fight an adversary that won't stay down

...who deal with microbial diseases in hospitals must remain cautious about exposing the bacterial pathogens to the newest and most effective drugs so as to avoid overuse and the accompanying onset of resistance. "There are a relatively small number of antibiotics that have come out that are new, and some of ...

Protein Packages Found To Activate Genes; May Be What Regulates Development And Disease

...lthough the exact ways genes are turned on and off remain unknown, the tags in chromatin are believed to play a major role. Until now, however, it had not even been known which regions of the genome carry such tags. A complete surprise Most regions of the chromatin have only a few "on" tags, but in region...

U-M scientists find genes that control growth of common skin cancer

First-ever Compounds To Target Only Metastatic Cells Are Highly Effective Against Breast, Prostate, And Colon Cancers

...knowledge, that's a real first." Exact mechanisms remain unclear. "Obviously, these compounds are targeting some step in the cell-migration process," Dr. Huang said. The activity of a migration-linked protein called Rac appears to be much reduced in cancer cells affected by the analogues, and the research...

As one reaches a channel width of about 30 nanometer, one theoretically expects new effects arising from the line tension of the contact line, but s...

This could give biologists a ringside seat to nuclear processes that span several hours or days, such as DNA replication, genomic alter...

Scientists identify new model Of NK cell development
