Drug stops blinding blood vessel growth in mice

...nk in the chain. A fewlinks downstream is protein kinase C, an enzyme that appears to be important inkeeping the chain reaction going. Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) isstructurally similar to VEGF and may stoke the fires of the chain reaction fromanother direction. PKC 412 may mount a th...

Gene treatment can boost heart function in rabbits, Duke researchers say

...eceptors (ßARs) and beta adrenergic receptor kinase (ßARK) --work together to regulate heart function. Receptors such as ßAR are molecularswitches that turn on cell processes when triggered by external substances suchas hormones. In reacting to a failing heart, the body releases large amo...

New components of machinery that carries genetic information from nucleus

... other of the suspected kinases. Depending on the kinase blocked, weexpected to see buildup of either IP3 or IP5, with no IP6 in any case." Sureenough, said York, the experiments indicated that the mysterious genes coded forkinases, or at least their regulators, transformed IP3 to IP4, and IP5 to IP6. ...

Protein studies reveal sophisticated control of nerve communication

... activates an enzyme called cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), and hownerve cells organize specialized pools of PKA so that these pools will be readyfor instant use. As it turns out, PKA is one of the two enzymes that yotiao holds near theNMDA receptors. Whenever the anchor protein releases it, PKA stimu...

Hepatitis C's interferon resistance mechanism discovered

... This triggers the infected cell toproduce protein kinase (PKR), an enzyme that adds a chemical entity known as aphosphate group (a process called phosphorylation) to a variety of proteins,including itself. Among PKR's targets is a protein called eukaryotic initiation factor 2(eIF2 a ). Adding a phosphate...

Scientists uncover how a colon-cancer prevention drug works

...cer-cellgrowth. "We found that sulindac inhibits a kinase (an enzyme that adds phosphate ontoits target), which in turn prevents the activation of NF-kB," Gaynor said. "Thiskinase should be an excellent target not only for the development of novelanti-inflammatory agents but also for the development of agen...

New link uncovered in nerve cell mechanism thought to power learning and memory

...th GluR1 a constitutively active form of a protein kinase (CaMKII) known to be sufficient to elicit the synaptic strengthening that is the hallmark of LTP. To investigate the mechanistic relationship between AMPA receptors and CaMKII, Malinow and his colleagues mutated a site within GluR1 that had been show...

UCSD researchers find genetic key to puzzling congenital disease

... human disease found to be linked to the I-kappa-B kinase (IKK) signaling pathway, the master switch for the body's immune and inflammatory responses, and for programmed cell death. We have a nearly perfect mouse model of this disease," said Constantin Makris, Ph.D., principal author on the paper and a post...

Molecular mechanism for learning and memory is identified

...e and function. In the case of GAP-43, the protein kinase C (PKC) is the enzyme responsible for its phosphorylation. The researchers first studied four different types of mice and their ability to learn by putting them through a battery of tests. The tests of spatial and working memory became increasingly...
