...ld. But more than just misfolding themselves, they influence other proteins of the same type to do the same. In all known cases, the proteins in these misfolded clusters cease their normal function and either die or are deadly to the cell and ultimately to the organism. For this reason, Kausik Si, a pos...

Can the mode of training affect the hormone response to different modes of exercise?

.... Thus, while it is known that training status can influence the hormone response to exercise, it is not clear whether the mode of training can affect the hormone response to different modes of exercise. Such information could be useful in designing training regimes that will result in the most favorable ratio...

As a result, the researchers show in the Dec. 5 issue of Science, the two groups of flies are not only fit for different environments but may also be on their way to sexual isolation, a crucial divide in the emergence of a new speci...

New understanding of insulin's complexities needed to conquer diabetes

...roduction, and appetite regulation. The widespread influence of insulin and the vulnerability of its signaling pathways to inhibition make understanding insulin signaling an important research goal, White noted. Improper regulation of these pathways can lead to a range of systemic disorders. The most recogniz...

"Further, if malnutrition causes emphysema in anorexic patients, it may contribute to emphysema in smokers. If so, nutritional trea...

Can EPO prevent loss of brain function in schizophrenia?

...eptic treatment by itself, however, is unlikely to influence the neurodegenerative course of schizophrenia. Therefore, a neuroprotective add-on therapy using well-tolerated and safe compounds appears worthwhile to test.
