Mouse with iron disorder offers clues to Parkinson's, similar diseases

...e brain areas affected in the IRP 2 deficient mice correspond closely to those affected in Multiple System Atrophy (formerly known as Olivopontocerebellar Atrophy). For this reason, the NICHD researchers are planning a study to test patients with this disorder for defects of the IRP2 gene. IRP 2 is a key p...

Virginia Tech researchers join NSF Arabidopsis 2010 Project; may help produce plants that defend themselves without pesticides

... The scientists then must identify what substrates correspond to each enzyme and in what plant part the substrates are, as well as when they are produced. "The shoot, leaf, stem will have different enzymes or genes active in them as well as different substrates," Esen said. "Now we will know about the enzyme ...

New transgenic rat model of ALS expands research possibilities
