Monell researchers find metabolic defect in liver that can lead to obesity

...ect involves decreased production of liver enzymes needed to burn fat and may help to explain why some people become obese while others remain thin. The global obesity epidemic is thought to be caused in part by the increased availability and intake of high calorie foods rich in fat and carbohydrates. Th...

Disease-free mosquito bred to disease-carrier can have all disease-free progeny

...ss foreign genes in the mosquito germ cells. We needed to gain access to the cells in the reproductive germline to change the way traits are inherited, said Zach Adelman, assistant professor of entomology and a member of the Vector-Borne Infectious Disease Research Group at Virginia Tech ( www.vectorborn...

MIT IDs mechanism behind fear

...appeared when the mice learned that they no longer needed to fear the environment where the foot shocks had once occurred. "In our study, we employ mice to show that extinction of learned fear depends on counteracting components of a molecular pathway involving the protein kinase Cdk5," said Tsai, a How...

...uppressing IL6 activity. While further research is needed to determine the effectiveness of IL6 targeted cancer therapies, these initial results are encouraging. "Targeting secreted proteins that Ras activates has opened the door to inhibit the oncogenic signal of Ras via druggable proteins," states Dr. Cou...

Sour taste make you pucker? It may be in your genes

...ernal) twins to determine the lowest concentration needed for each twin to correctly identify a citric acid solution as sour. Because MZ twins have nearly identical genes while DZ twins share only about 50% of their genes, more similar responses in MZ than DZ pairs suggests that genes help determine sen...

Researchers use new approach to predict protein function

...cose and related compounds into other molecules as needed for metabolism. The enzymes within the enolase superfamily utilize similar reaction mechanisms to one another but catalyze different reactions, complicating the task of discovering their function. There are more than 3,000 proteins in the enolase s...

Nearly 90 percent of babies receive recommended newborn screening tests

...s makes it difficult for states to get support for needed legislation. In states that do not follow the ACMG recommendations, the March of Dimes staff and volunteers continue to work with governors, legislatures, and parent groups to advocate for expanded newborn screening on a state-by-state basis.
