'Preconditioning' helps protect brain's blood vessels from stroke

...ty, the researchers found. Preconditioning also boosted blood flow in areas of the brain unaffected by the stroke by 114 percent. However, mice that were genetically engineered so that they could not produce NO gained no such advantage from preconditioning. This suggests that NO and its chemical offspr...

Tick-related disease thrives on cholesterol, study suggests

...l, Rikihisa said. A high-cholesterol diet really boosted infection levels in the mice without apoE, Rikihisa said. The findings suggest that humans may be more susceptible to HGA if they eat a high-cholesterol diet and if they are otherwise prone to high blood cholesterol levels. Studies by other researc...

US conservation efforts bring more marine turtles to UK

US and Mexican conservation efforts may have boosted the number of marine turtles visiting UK waters, according to University of Exeter biologists. New research published this week in Marine Biology analyses 100 years of data. It shows an increase in the number of loggerhead and Kemps ridley turtles in...

Salk scientists hammer out a pathway that promotes muscle cell survival in mice

...was also reduced. Conversely, when the researchers boosted SIK1 levels or inhibited HDAC activity with a drug, muscle cell health was restored in mice genetically engineered to lack CREB and suffering from muscle weakness as a result. "Weve discovered that SIK1 provides a completely unexpected link be...

US conservation efforts bring more marine turtles to UK

US and Mexican conservation efforts may have boosted the number of marine turtles visiting UK waters, according to University of Exeter biologists. New research by the University of Exeter and Marine Environmental Monitoring, published this week in Marine Biology (3 May 2007), analyses 100 years of ...

Chemists create healthier pizza by boosting antioxidants in dough

...oxidant properties. Longer fermentation times also boosted antioxidant levels, in some cases by as much as 100 percent, he says. The increase likely resulted from chemical reactions induced by yeasts, which had more time to release the antioxidant components that were bound in the dough, Moore says. Althou...

Stem cells act through multiple mechanisms to benefit mice with neurodegenerative disease

Common gene version optimizes thinking -- but with a possible downside

...cts had the most common version of the gene, which boosted circuit activation, structural and functional connectivity and performance on thinking tasks, likely by increasing gene expression. In 257 affected families, people with schizophrenia were more likely to have this common version of the DARPP-32 gene....

Human trial results show excellent safety data, from Geovax's DNA/MVA AIDS vaccines

... the immune response. The immune response was then boosted by administration of 1/10th of a dose of GeoVax's MVA vaccine at week 16 and again at week 24." The vaccine response was determined in tests conducted on human blood samples collected after vaccination. These assays were conducted at the Emory Univ...

Researchers find docking sites for glucocorticoid receptor and Hsp90

... Finding and confirming the two binding sites were boosted by the recently published crystallized structures of both Hsp90 and GR, Darimont said. "Our results suggest that Hsp90 binds GR with the help of specific docking sites in the C-terminal domain of Hsp90," she said. "This finding opens the possibilit...

Gene linked to autism in families with more than one affected child

...velopment. Inheriting two copies of the C version boosted risk for autism spectrum disorders 2.26-fold, while inheriting one copy of C and one of G increased risk 1.54-fold. "Since autism likely involves complex interactions between many different genes and other factors, common genetic predisposing facto...

Two weeks later they were challenged with the Nipah virus and results showed that all vaccinated animals appeared to be protected, the virus was not found in the tissue of any of the immunized pigs. In contrast, the virus was identif...

Fatty spheres loaded with siRNA shrink ovarian cancer tumors in preclinical trial

...ombining the FAK-silencing liposome with docetaxel boosted tumor weight reduction to the 94-98 percent range. These results also held up in experiments with ovarian cancer cell lines resistant to docetaxel and to the chemotherapy drug cisplatin. The FAK-silencing liposome and the liposome with chemot...

Solitons could power molecular electronics, artificial muscles

... waves gradually flatten out; unless the signal is boosted periodically, it disappears. In contrast, solitonic light waves retain their structure and keep going without assistance. Some telecommunication companies have exploited that fact by using solitons to cheaply send signals over long distances. Befor...
