Nicotine rush hinges on sugar in neurons

...e as the link between the neurotransmitter binding site and the membrane region where the gate is located,” Chen said. “The sugar is kind of like a hinge. It’s pulling the door open and closed.” Cutting the sugar chains stopped the gate’s operation, according to Chen, who said, “The sugar is critical,...

Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

... acting more like an ambulance crew helping at the site of a road wreck, not causing the crash. The work suggests that doctors not rush in to turn off molecular events that scientists have widely considered to be detrimental in people with the disease. The findings could also renew efforts to develop a...

Old memory traces in brain may trigger chronic pain

...sentially gets stuck in the prefrontal cortex, the site of emotion and learning. The brain seems to remember the injury as if it were fresh and can’t forget it. With new understanding of the pain source, Vania Apkarian, professor of physiology, and of anesthesiology, at Northwestern’s Feinb...

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

...e said. ''If you do it right, if you select the site correctly and monitor, it can be near permanent,'' Benson said. Of greater concern to the researchers are the potential risks of carbon sequestration to human health, mainly through asphyxiation and groundwater contamination. The threat of asph...

Genetic factors are linked to fever following smallpox vaccination

...ne complex, and especially the IL-1A gene, was the site most significantly associated with different risks of fever. “Vaccines are the safest and most effective way to prevent a number of very important childhood and adult diseases,” Dr. Stanley remarked. “Our work is designed to identify ways we mi...

Blood-brain barrier breached by new therapeutic strategy

... that result in only localized delivery around the site of injection. The new research provides a safe and non-invasive method for delivering therapeutic molecules across the blood-brain barrier. It has the potential to be applied to the treatment of a variety of brain infections and diseases. The researc...

They found that proteins normally associated with the plus ends of microtubules, called CLASPs, localize to a specific compartment of the...

St. Jude study shows genes play an unexpected role in their own activation

...P/p300 to the gene by binding to this protein at a site called KIX. Previously, scientists thought that a particular transcription factor uses the same co-factors to activate all its target genes. The new findings showed that phosphate-tagged CREB binding to CBP/p300 at KIX does not account for most g...

Professor Moore said: "Some indications of the results of the trial may be available within several months. However, the subjects will need to be followed-up to assess the long term effect of the treatment. It ...

Traumas like Sept. 11 make brains more reactive to fear

However, the kinds of changes that these traumas cause in the brain, the researchers suspect, create vulnerability to developing future mental disorders. Specifically, the Cornell researchers found that thre...

Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with lethal toxin, UF research shows

The UF findings, published last week in the EMBO Journal, may lead to quicker diagnoses for anthrax victims. The disease ca...
