Leading cause of death in 'preemies' might be controlled by resetting a molecular switch
Washington, D.C. -- Blocking signals from a key molecular receptor that normally switches on the intestines immune response but instead becomes too intense in the presence of stress and toxins may help reverse necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a leading cause of death in premature newborns, accor...
Travelers can avoid jet lag by resetting their body clocks
A simple, at-home treatment -- a single light box and the over-the-counter drug melatonin -- allows travelers to avoid jet lag by resetting
their circadian body clock before crossing several time zones, according to new research being published in The Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocri...
A resetting signal keeps circadian rhythm on track in Drosophila fruit flies
A Brandeis University study published this week in Nature shows for the first time that a molecular signal maintains coherence among brain clock cells that regulate daily activity of Drosophila melanogaster (fruit flies). The two key groups of neurons control morning and evening activity and are ma...
