Sleep in early life may play crucial role in brain development

...layed during non-REM sleep, strengthening neuronal connection changes. The alternative theory, which could also work in conjunction with the first, is that powerful growth factors, such as neurotrophins, which are known to be necessary for cortical plasticity, are released during non-REM sleep. "Right now we do...

Key step in gene activation discovered

... site of a gene, creating a region that provides a connection point for the HAT complex, which helps it add the Acetate Group to the histones, which provides a connecting point for the SWI/SNF complex, which stabilizes it and holds it in place so it can start unwinding the gene," Workman explains. Defects in ...

UT Southwestern researchers find another clue to secrets of cellular aging

...This is an important step in trying to explain the connection between telomere shortening and aging," Shay said. "Normal cells will only grow for a limited time. They grow for a while, and then they go through a process called senescence, or aging. We wanted to know about the molecular memory. Are cells countin...
