MRI study opens door to assessing, preventing dangerous brain iron levels

...in the United States." The UCLA team measured iron stored in ferritin molecules in the brain tissues of living subjects with MRI by using the Field Dependent Relaxation Rate Increase (FDRI) method. Iron was measured in four subcortical tissues, three white matter regions and the hippocampus of 165 healthy a...

New light on muscle efficiency: It is not the power-plant

...individuals in the efficiency of converting energy stored in food to work done by muscles are related to muscle fibre type composition and to the content of specific molecules in muscle. When muscles contract they use energy that is derived from food. It is a two-step process. The first step occurs in mitoc...

Scan of human genome reveals evidence of more than 700 recently evolving genes

...ion to modern diets may be in how food is used and stored in the body. The "thrifty gene" theory suggests some genes encourage efficient storage of food, which leads to rapid weight gain in times of abundant supply. Prior to modern agriculture, it was very important for the body to keep extra resources, bu...

...hat a receptor called InsP3R, which releases local stored Ca2+ into the cell, induces activation of a nuclear protein called CaMKII, resulting in heart failureassociated gene expression. The gene expression changes are induced through modification of another protein called histone deacetylase5 (HDAC5). Impo...

The critical importance of mangroves to ocean life
