Researchers discover molecular 'switch' that tells body to store or burn fat

...oxidative metabolism. A key question is whether a partial reduction in SCD-1 activity rather than a complete loss of the enzyme's activity as in asebia mice could alter metabolism without incurring unwanted side effects. The answer appears to be yes, according to Ntambi and co-author Makoto Miyazaki, Ph.D...

The scientists genetically engineered a strain of mice in which a specific protein called the NMDA receptor was absent only in the CA3 region of the hippocampus. This receptor senses the primary neurotransmitter of t...

CF Foundation seizes proteomics for drug discovery

.... However, these mutant CFTR proteins often retain partial function, and restoring some of that activity may help correct the defect in CF cells. It is believed that many protein-protein interactions are involved in determining the processing, regulation and function of CFTR. Although some of these interact...

UT Southwestern researchers identify gene responsible for a rare body-fat disorder

...s that participated in the study. Characterized by partial or complete lack of body fat at birth, individuals affected by this disorder develop severe diabetes as teen-agers. Other complications include severe insulin resistance, high blood lipids and an accumulation of fat in the liver. Although we underst...
