Discovery Of Cell Sites May Shed Light On How Bodily Systems Interact

... the receptors actuallydo. "We've discovered what physiologists learned 100 years ago," Kelleysaid. "There are physiological feedback systems, but this is in thecontext of not the heart talking to the kidney, not the brain talking tothe heart, but in the context of the immune system talking with the endocrinesyst...

Measurement Technique Provides Snapshot Of Cell Physiology

...e cell has beendeveloped by a team of chemists and physiologists at the University of Illinois. The method -- which uses nanoliter sampling, capillary electrophoresisand fluorescence spectroscopy -- is direct, convenient and highly sensitive. "By combining a nanoliter-volume separation technique with an informati...

Researchers Discover Why Some Athletes' Performances Fail To Improve On A Live-High, Train-Low Regimen

...tern and Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. Exercise physiologists have known for years that, in most cases, the bodyresponds to high altitude by producing more red blood cells to boost oxygenlevels. That formed the basis of Levine's original 1997 study performed incollaboration with Dr. James Stray-Gundersen, a for...

Genomics project aims to create a "virtual plant"

June 1, 2000 -- A group of plant physiologists is calling for a major scientific effort to understand the biological machinery of a plant in enough detail to construct a virtual plant that can be used to examine every aspect of a plant's development. In a report on The 2010 Project, which is ava...

The UNC researchers also are developing a promising complementary technique for inactivating specific molecules responsible for making cells move and stick to...

Subjects lying face up reveal a reduced ability for 'nasal air conditioning'

...d increase nasal cavity volume. A team of Chicago physiologists have hypothesized that decreasing nasal volume by placing subjects in the supine position would increase the ability of the nose to warm and humidify air compared with unaltered nasal volume in the upright position. The authors of the study, Supine P...

The body's production of melatonin may be the reason why the elderly can't get a good night's sleep

... build upon their past research efforts, a team of physiologists set out to examine the internal phase relationship between sleep-wake timing and the timing of another marker of circadian phase. The timing of the plasma melatonin rhythm is considered to be a more accurate marker of the status of the circadian timi...

An animal study raises additional concerns about the use of dexamethasone on premature infants

...nfants. An animal study, carried out by a team of physiologists from the University of Michigan, has demonstrated the long-term effects of dexamethasone on stress response and behavior later in life. Background Dexamethasone (dex) is a therapy that neonatologists use because it improves the function of premature ...

Their primary professional commitment is to understand the processes and functions so that promising in cures can be developed. The APS p...

Findings conclude sustained caffeine intake negates the benefits of creatine supplements

...he muscles' short-term fuel stores. Some exercise physiologists believe that caffeine might improve performance by increasing fat oxidation and conserving muscle glycogen. Creatine is used by athletes to increase lean body mass and improve performance in single and repetitive high-intensity, short-duration exerc...

Relative of snake venom toxin may aid in understanding nicotine addiction

... nicotinic receptors an important finding because physiologists had told us they werent really sure that a membrane-bound molecule like lynx-1 could even access the receptor, said Heintz. That finding really stimulated us to do an in-depth analysis of how lynx1 changed the properties of the receptors. She further...

A pilot study may offer promise of a marker for ovarian cancer

...er than those in healthy, non-pregnant women. Now, physiologists from the same institution have attempted to extend their original observations on ANP in gynecologic malignancy, in particular to examine the possible relationship between ANP and proANP-(1-30) levels in plasma and ascites fluid (serous fluid from th...

A popular Japanese plum, now available in the US, may help prevent the onset of cardiac disease

...which is produced during the plum processing. Two physiologists from Vanderbilt University and a collaborator from Wakayama University (Japan) have focused on mechanisms of bainiku-ekisu to prevent various diseases. In addition to the effect of bainiku-ekisu on blood fluidity, it may have a direct effect on the v...
