Compound may help prevent diabetes in fast-food fans

.... The compound also seems to facilitate the normal transport of fat into the adipose tissue, where it is normally stored, he adds. By contrast, fats that are taken into the body too quickly, as during a fast-food binge, tend to be rapidly shunted to non-adipose tissues such as the liver, heart and pancreas, wh...

Lab study: Protein delivered via genetically engineered virus slowed glioblasoma multiforme growth

.... Genetically engineered viruses are used to transport genes and/or proteins into cells and have been used in gene therapy research for the last ten years. Just like a viral infection, they work by tricking cells into accepting them as part of their own genetic coding. To make them safe, scientists rem...

Scientists discover enzyme crucial to HIV replication

...virus co-opts an enzyme produced by human cells to transport HIV's genetic material out of the cell nucleus. Once out of the nucleus, these messenger RNAs begin directing the cell to create and assemble new virus particles.
