Protein energy profiles offer clues about amyloids
.... "We know now that most diseases involve proteins going
wrong in one of two ways," said lead researcher Cecilia Clementi, assistant professor of chemistry at Rice University. "In the first, proteins don't function correctly because they fold into the wrong shape. This is something we see in sickle-cell an...

New method identifies chromosome changes in malignant cells
... gives scientists a clearer idea of what is really going
wrong in tumors and thus points to possible treatments. The researchers already used their system to identify previously unrecognized immune system genes that are deleted in breast cancer cells, suggesting possible ways in which these aberrant cells ...

INEEL uses extremophile bacteria to ease bleaching's environmental cost
...n says. "Any catalase derived from a mammal is not going
to be stable at extreme conditions." The INEEL team isolated the catalase enzyme from T. brockianus and found its industrial half-life to be 15 days instead of the 15 seconds of other catalase enzymes -- an 86,000-fold improvement. Scientists use an ...

to work across a timeframe, after induction of long-term potentiation, and find out when the different molecules change, whether the synapses remain enlarged, start to fall off, fall off with LTP or something else." Dr. Cliff Abraham, neuroscient...
Gene for Joubert syndrom with excessive brain folds discovered by UCSD researchers and Harvard team
...we think that the genes causing this condition are going
to underlie more common childhood brain and behavioral abnormalities, such as autism, mental retardation, and poor coordination" said the UCSD paper's senior author, Joseph Gleeson, M.D., assistant professor of neurosciences at UCSD and Children's Ho...

UNC Lineberger researchers identify molecular markers of aging

on a short-term diet will not reverse the aging process; only long-term restrictions appeared to have an effect on p16INK4a and ARF expression. Therefore, our results would not be consistent with the idea that short-term caloric restriction prior to ...
