Stem cell therapy shows promise for rescuing deteriorating vision

...test the cells as a continuous delivery system" to shuttle an agent known as glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor or GDNF, Lund explains. "It's not a sensible thing to inject the eyes many times over years. The idea was to use the cells as a continuous delivery system, but we found they work quite wel...

Major link in brain-obesity puzzle found

...all-trades in the world of cell signaling. Able to shuttle between the area just beneath the cell membrane and the nucleus, it can bind to many different molecules and facilitate signaling. Specifically, it can bind to a variety of molecules called tyrosine kinases, including ones that serve as receptors ...

NYU biologists identify gene that coordinates two cellular processes

...ar envelope, the MEL-28-GFP fusion was observed to shuttle between the nuclear periphery and the chromosomes during cell division. Additional functional tests showed that mel-28 was essential to both the integrity of the nuclear envelope and to proper chromosome segregation. This study served as a validation...

The first tree genome is published: Poplar holds promise as renewable bioenergy resource

...l from the air by producing trees that effectively shuttle and store more carbon below ground in their roots and the soil. Moreover, bioenergy crops re-absorb carbon dioxide emitted when biofuels are consumed, creating a cycle that is essentially carbon neutral." Poplar's extraordinarily rapid growth, and i...

Light-sensitive photoswitches could restore sight to those with macular degeneration

...hanging molecules to proteins, developing means to shuttle these photoswitches into cells, building artificial genes that can be inserted into a cell's DNA to express the photoswitches in the correct cell, and searching for ways to get light into areas of the body not possible to illuminate directly.

U of M study examines kidney stone prevention in astronauts

As the space shuttle Discovery prepares to launch on July 1, researchers at the University of Minnesota have identified a way for astronauts to reduce their risk of developing kidney stones while in space. Astronauts lose calcium in their bones and strength in their mus...

Lactic acid not athlete's poison, but an energy source - if you know how to use it

...on between the transporter molecules - the lactate shuttle - and the enzymes that burn lactate. In fact, the cellular mitochondrial network, or reticulum, has a complex of proteins that allow the uptake and oxidation, or burning, of lactic acid. "This experiment is the clincher, proving that lactate is the ...

Motor transport in bio-nano systems

... cell center to the periphery and vice versa, some shuttle between different organelles or cellular compartments. An extreme case is provided by the long-ranged transport of vesicles and organelles along the axons between our nerve cells, which can be as long as half a meter. All of these movements are based...

Molecular Motors Cooperate In Moving Cellular Cargo, Study Shows

...ght on the tiny movements of molecular motors that shuttle material within living cells. The motors cooperate in a delicate choreography of steps, rather than engaging in the brute-force tug of war many scientists had imagined. "We discovered that two molecular motors -- dynein and kinesin -- do not compet...
