Wisconsin scientists develop quick botox test

...widely used in cosmetic procedures to smooth frown lines and wrinkles. Last year, Chapman's group identified the mechanism by which the toxin enters cells. Inside the cell, the toxin targets three key proteins, which are essential for mediating the release of chemical signals from neurons and that governs ...

No role for simian virus 40 in human pleural mesotheliomas

...pletely absent." Their study presents multiple lines of evidence against the proposed link between SV40 and human mesotheliomas. As part of their ongoing research into the biology of human pleural mesothelioma, this team of MSKCC investigators searched for SV40 DNA, RNA, or protein in frozen tissue sam...

Based on all this data, researchers will create computer models to predict when plants will flower and which will thrive in certain regions....

New way to protect brain from stroke damage

...oke damage, they found. "Our study offers multiple lines of evidence that reveal acid-sensing ion channels as major players in the damage suffered by stroke victims," Xiong said. "Furthermore, we found that existing pharmacologic agents that block those channels can dramatically reduce the amount of brain ...

Wind's slow-spin technique, which can generate detailed spectra from these boundary regions, takes advantage of a quirk in NMR. NMR generates a spectral signature of compounds in a sample bas...

Computer models expose humans as main cause of caribou decline

...to be and are no longer cut in straight lines. The lines are also reseeded shortly after being cut. Research is being conducted to see if these measures lessen the impact on the caribou. However, whether these measures prove effective or not, Weclaw believes that even more needs to be done to ensure the co...

Study of flu patients reveals virus outsmarting key drug

...ruses can easily and quickly thwart one of the few lines of defense for a disease that claims many lives each year and that, in a pandemic, is among the world's most feared and deadly diseases. "The importance of this work is that when a pandemic occurs with a new virus and this drug is extensively used, ...

Protein fishing in America: The movie

...her proteins much like fly-fishermen flicker their lines against water, or so a current leading theory holds. The repeated weak slapping of protein surfaces against one-another is the critical first step in a chain of events that rule all subsequent cellular behavior. But this vital exchange between single...

Regular physical activity really does boost immune system in older men

...mostly men, are fond of saying something along the lines of, "I feel like a 25-year-old." As it turns out, judging by the reaction strength of their immune system to an unknown, but harmless, protein antigen, it's possible for men over 70 to mount an immune response similar to that produced by much younge...

Anticancer drug zebularine specifically targets tumor cells

The difference between tumor cells and normal fibroblasts is that the growth of tumor cells tends to continue unchecked. What t...

In a new study of neuroblastoma cell lines and tumor samples, Manel Esteller, M.D., Ph.D., of the Spanish National Cancer Centre in Madrid, and colleagues found that by looking at the hypermethylation status--an indicator of whether a gene is turned on or off--of the promoters of several tumo...
