Rockefeller University scientists take on controversial 'vibration theory' of smell

... in the brain that, by a still mysterious process, leads to the perception of distinct odors. But the problem with the shape theory is that humans have only 347 different odorant receptor proteins dedicated to smell, as researchers working at Senomyx discovered in 2001. A strict lock-and-key mechanism woul...

Research on inherited eye disorders uncovers new information about blood-vessel formation

...ssels, and a leakiness in those blood vessels that leads to scarring and ultimately blindness," said Nathans. The function of the Norrin protein was unknown before this new work, he said. The second disorder the researchers studied, FEVR, "tends to be milder and with a range of severity all the way from a ...

'Protein-only' prions confirmed in FSU yeast study

...ereby becoming prions themselves. Invariably, this leads to the disruption or alteration of normal cell function, King said. Another key find in the FSU study is that prions formed in host cells are amyloids, a family of fiber-forming proteins that often are associated with neurological disorders in human...

... ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. This enzymatic reaction leads to the production of higher levels of polyamines, which are critical for normal and neoplastic cell growth. As ODC activity is higher in BCCs than in normal human skin, Mohammad Athar and colleagues, from Columbia University, sought to evaluate the p...

These defects cannot be detected by commonly used listening tests for hearing performance." Interestingly, the study also found that the BAEP latencies of soci...

While the specific initiating event that leads to late-onset vascular changes is not certain, the death of these neurons may contribute to the complex cascade of events that disrupts the beautifully organized retina over years; eventually, this back portion of the eye begins to grow new blood ves...

Stress hormones and heart failure

...airment of heart muscle function, which eventually leads to a loss in the ability of the heart to pump blood. The known causes of congestive heart failure are multiple, and can be either acquired or inherited. In some individuals, the cause is unknown. Wylie W. Vale, Helene MacLoraine Professor of ...

Crucial brain development gene identified

...hin and colleagues determined that Lgl1 deficiency leads to a loss of apical/basal polarity in neural progenitor cells, failure of these cells to differentiate into more specialized cell types, and an overall increase in proliferation by the neural progenitor cell population. The researchers believe that i...

An uncontrolled excess of Langerhans cells leads to LCH, with effects that range from a limited, spontaneously resolving illness to a chronic, life-threatening disease involving multiple organ systems. Although rare, occurring in approximately five children per million, LCH most commonly strikes bo...

UN study shows environmental consequences from ongoing boom in personal computer sales

"But it is exactly because they have become so ubiquitous that we must be aware of the negative impacts of the PC boom." Sales of personal computers h...

Design of composite materials that detect terahertz discovered

The activated master switch protein can then regulate expression of genes that mount a response to the injury. The UI team used gene manipulation to replace IkB alpha with IkB...
