Findings by Einstein scientists reveal possible strategy against obesity, diabetes and infertility

(BRONX, NY) Twelve years ago, scientists discovered leptin--the now-famous hormone that controls appetite, burns calories and performs other crucial physiological activities as well. But the precise mechanism(s) by which leptin carries out these metabolic tasks is still controversial. Now, researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have shown how leptin exerts s...

Einstein researchers take the pulse of a gene in living cells

June 9, 2006 (BRONX, NY) -- Scientists at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have observed for the first time that gene expression can occur in the form of discrete "pulses" of gene activity. The researchers used pioneering microscopy techniques, developed by Dr. Robert Singer and colleagues at Einstein, that for the first time allow scientists to directly watch the beh...

Feinstein researchers identify intelligence gene

GLEN OAKS, NY -- Psychiatric researchers at The Zucker Hillside Hospital campus of The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research have uncovered evidence of a gene that appears to influence intelligence. Working in conjunction with researchers at Harvard Partners Center for Genetics and Genomics in Boston, the Zucker Hillside team examined the genetic blueprints of individuals with schizophrenia, a...

Einstein researchers identify genetic variants that lend clues to living longer

Many studies show that tweaking a single gene can extend life span in animal models. In a new study, Drs. Gil Atzmon and Nir Barzilai at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have found that people harbor alleles--alternative forms of a gene--that confer the same sort of longevity advantage. ...... The researchers looked for genetic clues to longevity in a group of 214 As...

Discovery at the Feinstein suggests new treatment approach for inflammatory conditions

MANHASSET, NY -- Scientists at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research have made a discovery that may change the way inflammatory conditions are treated. The researchers looked at certain nerve cell receptors in the brain and found they control inflammation in the body. The discovery presents a potential new approach for treating inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and inflamma...

Einstein researchers find potential new drugs for tuberculosis

Researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have synthesized chemicals that are up to 10 times more effective than isoniazid, the leading anti-tuberculosis drug. The finding could lead to badly needed new drugs for combating tuberculosis bacteria, which each year kill an estimated 2.4 million people worldwide. The study appears in the March issue of Chemistry & Bi...

Einstein scientists discover how protein crucial for motion is synthesised at the right place in the cell

Their study appears in the November 24 issue of the journal Nature.... Led by Drs. Robert Singer and Dr Stefan Huettelma...

Einstein researchers identify new way that bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics

Scientists at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine have discovered a novel strategy by which the bacterium that causes tuberculosis may soon be able to resist the effects of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. The finding explains why several disease-causing microbes, including Shigella and E. coli, are rapidly becoming resistant to fluoroquinolones. ...The international research effort w...
