... the Netherlands, general practitioners act as the gatekeepers to secondary care. As a rule, patients are listed with one physician who receives daily information on admissions and discharges from hospitals.

Less fat makes better process for designing new drugs

...ll membranes of living organisms, and they are the gatekeepers that regulate what enters and leaves a cell, explained Martin Caffrey, professor of chemistry at Ohio State. To design a drug that will target a particular protein, scientists need to view the protein's structure in detail, and that involves removing...

Hominids lose control

...human evolution? It's unlikely that the regulatory gatekeepers of our genome will allow mutations to spin out of control. Even if the number of unwanted mutations were to increase, stronger natural selection against them is likely to develop in parallel, Keightley and colleagues explain, protecting our fitness f...

UCLA physiologist elected to prestigious British Royal Society

...n and genetics of transport proteins, which act as gatekeepers for the body by carrying essential molecules in and out of cells. In 2003, his research team identified a new protein that senses changes in glucose, the blood sugar that fuels body function. The UCLA discovery could lead to the development of new dr...

'Nano-keys' bind cell receptors and trigger allergic reactions

... characteristic allergy symptoms) and they are the gatekeepers for the allergic immune response. This system can be manipulated experimentally. Specifically, Baird works with immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies, which mount membrane proteins on mast cells to form receptor complexes that sense the environment and s...

Neuroscientists explain inner workings of critical pain pathway

...ecial form of N-type calcium channel, the cellular gatekeepers that help control pain messages passed between nerve cells. By blocking these channels, pain signals are inhibited. These findings not only shed important light on how the body controls pain, they could be a boon to drug development. "We've known ...

Technology reveals 'lock and key' proteins behind diseases

...s that are poised in cellular membranes and act as gatekeepers to allow the entry of certain substances, like nutrients, into the cell and promote the export of other substances, like toxins, out of the cell," says Professor Igor Stagljar, Department of Medical Genetics and Department of Biochemistry at the Univ...
