Study provides new details of 'the birth of a virus'

...encourages the virus budding (Dana-Farber) and the maturation of Gag, the final stage in which the virus becomes infectious (NIAID). Each paper presents a slightly different view of these connections. "We discovered that the late domain attracts the cellular 'machinery' that causes proteins called ubiquitins ...

Different effects of puberty on resting metabolism in white and African American children

...n the girls throughout the study. The influence of maturation on body composition and REE was apparent at a younger age in African American children because they began puberty an average of 2 years earlier than whites. In a related editorial, Dr. J. Yanovski questions whether the observed slowdown in metabo...

NHLBI study shows reduced fat intake to lower cholesterol is safe and beneficial for children

...e children's growth, nutritional status, or sexual maturation throughout the seven-year study. Furthermore, the diet helped the children significantly decrease their blood levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) - the "bad" cholesterol - for up to three years. "This is the first study of this size to examine ...

Cutting the risk of coronary disease - start before birth says UK doctor

Professor Barker said that, among men, the highest death rates from coronary heart disease were in those who were thin at birth and at one year but whose weight gain accelerated in childhood so that they had an above average ...

New epilepsy gene identified in mice

...e mice lose their susceptibility to seizure during maturation and, thus, would not respond to seizure-inducing sound. When the researchers tested young BUB/BnJ mice, all of them showed such seizures. This finding, said Ptacek, demonstrated clearly that the mass1 gene mutation caused audiogenic epilepsy. Analysi...

Research: U.S. boys also reaching puberty earlier than in past years

...ges in when children as a group begin the physical maturation of puberty are important to understand since they could reflect, in part, harmful environmental conditions such as exposure to chemical contaminants, the scientist said. Dietary and other lifestyle changes in society also could play a role. Unfortuna...

Differences in response to amphetamines found between males and females pre-puberty

Parasitic worms 'read' the bodys immune condition and reproduce accordingly

...tes as the crucial cells without which normal worm maturation and normal egg production did not take place. CD4+ cells give rise to cytokines that normally act as growth inducers, or growth factors, boosting the development of other cells of the immune system. After the parasites invade their hosts, they reach ...

Researchers distinguish new type of leukemia

...eyer. This suggests that MLL is caused by arrested maturation of lymphocytes. Once we saw that these cells were nothing like those in ALL, we understood why these children dont respond well at all to standard chemotherapy for ALL, he said. When the scientists compared the genes whose expression is most characte...

Enzyme studies at Brookhaven Lab may lead to new antiviral agents

... The protease is used by the virus to complete the maturation of newly synthesized virus particles. To explain this process, Mangel uses the example of building a cathedral around internal scaffolding. Once the cathedral is in place, the last step is to remove the scaffolding. "Similarly," says Mangel, "adenovi...
