Candidate Regulator Of The Temporal Component Of Neurotransmitter Release Identified

...to share many similarities with general vesicle trafficking events, e.g. protein transport to the cell surface, as employed by cells from yeast to mammals. The major differences are speed - synaptic vesicles can perform secretion within 200 microseconds after arrival of a stimulus - and tight cont...

Jefferson Scientists Find Evidence Of Potentially Infectious HIV In Semen, Despite Inability To Detect Active Virus In Blood

... happen in seminal fluidand could this be from the trafficking of cells from the blood?," he says. Using a powerful molecular technique, polymerase chain reaction, he andhis co-workers found HIV provirus--a precursor form of HIV--in the semen of fourof the seven men. "The question was, is it de...

NIH grantee Günter Blobel wins Nobel Prize for protein signaling discovery

...is work has led to an explosion of knowledgeon the trafficking of proteins in the cell, and even on the way some kinds ofdrugs may be introduced into cells." Dr. Blobel's work has focused on the mechanisms by which proteins are moved, ortranslocated, across cellular membranes. In the early 1970s, he formulated ...

Learning how cell's tiny motor powers its mobility

...University of California,San Francisco. "It's like trafficking goods within a city. These goods include chromosomes during celldivision, and transport of membranes or proteins within cells. "The kinesin motors responsible for this transport are the world's smallest moving machines,even the smallest in the prot...

New link uncovered in nerve cell mechanism thought to power learning and memory

... learn more about the mechanism that mediates this trafficking of AMPA receptors within dendrites." The new study provides these answers. Malinow and his colleagues took advantage of the fact that most of the neurons they study contain AMPA receptors with both "GluR1" and "GluR2" subunits. Receptors with these...

Skin and hair spring from the same stem cells, researchers find

...e division of the stem cells, and then observe the trafficking patterns of the early-offspring TA cells. Results from the study "strongly suggest that the bulge stem cell is bipotent, and that the daughter (TA) cells migrate up to the epidermis and down to the root," Lavker said. Added Sun: "Theres been a t...

Golgi lipids regulate protein trafficking

...of the Golgi apparatus and specifically blocks the trafficking of certain constitutively secreted proteins, while allowing other cargo proteins to be packaged normally into regulated secretory vesicles. The fragmentation of the Golgi apparatus seen in PLA2-overexpressing cells is similar to a change that occurs...

Defective cell transport suggested in Alzheimer's disease

...re that several of these proteins are involved in trafficking cargo inside nerve cells. In a related report published in the November 8, 2001, issue of the journal Neuron , a team of researchers led by Goldstein showed that disruption of the transport system caused by defects in these proteins can lead to nerv...

UT Southwestern researchers develop new method of delivering vaccines

...des. Small molecules called chemokines attract the trafficking cells and help mediate this process. Lymphatic endothelial cells produce a chemokine known as MIP-3, which binds to a corresponding receptor called CCR7. Langerhans cells utilize CCR7 to migrate from the epidermis to draining lymph nodes, said Takash...

Study finds link between common neurological disorder and Alzheimer's disease

...comotive. Kinesin-1 is vital for efficient protein trafficking within neurons and other cells, and it's of great interest to us to find it linked to the genes that cause neurofibromatosis." The two genes linked to the disease are among the most commonly mutated genes in the entire human genome. The primary neuro...

Bone marrow cells may contribute to growth of new blood vessels in newborns

Perhaps by measuring the number of endothelial progenitor cells in the blood we can predict which babies have dangerous tumors and should be treated by drugs and which babies have tumors that will regress ear...
