A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty

...ch secretion, the pituitary gland is stimulated to secrete its own messengers, lutenizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), directly into the circulation. In turn, these rising levels of LH and FSH cause the testes and ovaries to produce the sex hormones testosterone and estradiol, the cul...

Bioartificial kidney under study at MCG

...ey function, " says Dr. Szerlip. The kidneys also secrete hormones, help determine how the body metabolizes calcium and phosphorus, stimulate red blood cell production, play a role in blood pressure regulation and clear and metabolize cytokines that help direct the immune system. The new device for kidney ...

Poor prenatal nutrition permanently damages function of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas

Programmable cells: Engineer turns bacteria into living computers

... Weiss' eventual goals, which is to have the cells secrete materials that build physical devices such as antennas or transmitters in places that are hard for humans to reach. Programmed cells also could be used to control the repair or construction of tissues within the body, possibly guiding stem cells to t...

Gene Signatures Predict Interferon Response For Multiple Sclerosis Patients

... gene expression profiles. Immune cells typically secrete interferons to fend off viruses and other pathogens. Interferons stem viral infection by inhibiting cell division in neighboring cells—thus preventing the virus from reproducing—and triggering pathways that kill the infected cells. It's thought that ...

Roots Engage in Underground Chemical Warfare

...sical support and taking in nutrients, plant roots secrete a wide variety of compounds that affect other nearby roots, as well as insects and microbes. But because it goes on unseen, bactericidal root activity has not been extensively investigated—until now. Using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, a rela...

Researchers reveal secrets of flying snakes

...icially are classified as harmless. Flying snakes secrete mild venom that is only dangerous to their small prey. They are diurnal and opistoglyphous, or rear-fanged. These back teeth measure only 2 to 3 millimeters long and each has a small groove that runs along the fang's outer edge, where the venom drips...

Immune system's distress signal tells bacteria when to strike back

... a host's immune system. It can repel antibiotics, secrete toxins similar to those used by anthrax, latch onto the bowel wall, bore its way through, and flow into the blood stream. As a consequence, patients with widespread Pseudomonas infection often die within a few days. Alverdy and colleagues were able ...

Pinpointing a culprit molecule in Alzheimer's disease

...e other "minigene" models in that they efficiently secrete Ab. To date we have little evidence for the accumulation of intracellular Ab in these mice; thus, they provide an excellent tool to study the effects of secreted Ab independently of APP transgenes."

Gene therapy advance treats hemophilia in mouse models

... hepatocytes, can make the factor VIII protein and secrete it into the bloodstream. However, the investigator... hepatocytes as a factory to make this protein and secrete it into the bloodstream." To better target the hepatocytes in the mice, the team took the disabled ...

Elderly mice yield clues to the process of growing old

...ide energy for cells to move, divide, contract and secrete products vital for the health of organisms. "We think that the key to what is happening in aging is that as (genetic) mutations or DNA damage accumulates, critical cells die," says Prolla. "These experiments favor a major role for programmed cell de...

Life-extending protein keeps blood sugar in check

Mice genetically modified to have an excess of Sirt1 in b cells of the pancreas had improved glucose tolerance and enhanced insulin secretion in response to glucose. The altered mice maintained their improved b cell function with ag...

Researchers discover new tumor defense system

...r reason to this list. They discovered that tumors secrete fatty acids which inhibit the cytotoxic T lymphocytes' ability to kill tumor cells. "We found two things," explains Dr. Kleinfeld. "First, the most common type of free fatty acids, which at normal levels are essential for life, at high levels preven...

Breast tumors in mice eradicated using cancer vaccine

...ent. "We reasoned that if we could get Listeria to secrete a foreign protein into the interior of the cell, it would target that pathway and would elicit a strong killer T cell response, and we have shown that," says Paterson. "Listeria is almost unique in the bacterial kingdom in doing this." In this mode...
