Penn researchers link cell's protein recycling systems

...egenerative disease and showed that they, too, are rescued by over-expression of HDAC6. Therefore, the researchers suggest that the level of the HDAC6 in a cell regulates its sensitivity to accumulation of misfolded proteins, and that increasing the activity of HDAC6 can prevent the degeneration normally ...

Blood sugar's manufacture limited by building blocks' supply

...servation, injection of pyruvate, but not alanine, rescued the mice from their fasting hypoglycemia. The findings point to a novel form of control over glucose levels, the researchers said. Ultimately, this "window into glucose control" might also have implications for diabetes treatment—a condition chara...

Swiss researchers develop all-in-one remote control gene expression tool

... application, dying cells (such as neurons) can be rescued by introducing a gene that expresses a growth factor. Thanks to the remote control carried in the lentivirus the expression of this growth factor can now be turned off when the desired effect is achieved, thus preventing unharnessed growth ?otherwise...
