Scientists uncover lead into premature aging, heart disease
Bioscience Technology    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Scientists have discovered that they can dramatically increase the life span of mice with progeria and heart disease by reducing levels of a protein called SUN1. This research was done by A*STAR's Institute of Medical Biology in collaboration with their partners at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the United States and the Institute of Cellular and System Medicine in Taiwan.

Stain-shedding coating gets tough
BBC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
VideoBriefChemists have devised a better method of coating fabrics with a water-repellent, "self-cleaning" coating. Many such "super-hydrophobic" coatings have been made before, but a report in the journal Langmuir describes coated fabrics that are far more durable. The trick was to engineer a multilayered coating whose layers, when struck with UV light, bond more firmly to each other and to cotton. More

University of Iowa biologists have advanced the knowledge of human neurodevelopmental disorders by finding that a lack of a particular group of cell adhesion molecules in the cerebral cortex — the outermost layer of the brain where language, thought and other higher functions take place — disrupts the formation of neural circuitry.

Direct optic approach enhances flourescent protein, other microplate analyses
Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When the Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded for the discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein in 2008, researchers were already using GFP in a wide range of cell-based assays. One of the most important uses for GFP is monitoring a variety of cellular processes in real-time. The many applications that use fluorescent proteins include: intracellular transport, protein signaling, cell movement, migration, division, apoptosis, chemotaxis, transcription, translation and many more.

Researchers at The Wistar Institute in Philadelphia announce the discovery of small molecules that kill cancer cells caused by infection with human papillomavirus. Their results, in both cell and mouse models, demonstrate that the small molecule inhibitors protect a tumor-suppressing protein targeted by viral proteins, thus killing the infected tumor cells.

New X-ray technique can identify tissue fibers in the heart
The Medical News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have developed a new X-ray technique to identify tissue fiber in the heart that ensure the muscle beats in a regular rhythm. The new 3-D images could further understanding of how the body's heartbeat can be disturbed, which may help medics develop ways to reduce the risk of fibrillation — a condition in which heart muscle contracts chaotically and fails to pump blood rhythmically around the body.

Scientists identify potential biomarket to help diagnose autism
HealthCanal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Autism is difficult to diagnose because of a lack of specific biological markers and a variability of symptoms, ranging from mild in some individuals to severely disabling in others. Now a team of University of Washington and Battelle scientists have identified metabolites in urine that could potentially predict young children at risk of developing autism. More

Protein yields clues to obesity, diabetes
Laboratory Equipment    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Humans are built to hunger for fat, packing it on during times of feast and burning it during periods of famine. But when deluged by foods rich in fat and sugar, the modern waistline often far exceeds the need to store energy for lean times, and the result has been an epidemic of diabetes, heart disease and other obesity-related problems.

Rapid progress in systems biology to increase multiplex testing
Dark Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Systems biology is a rapidly-evolving area of research that, by itself, could greatly expand the need for multiplex testing performed by clinical laboratories. But systems biology has yet to catch the full attention of either the media or Wall Street. That may soon change. Despite the complexity of human metabolic systems, experts in systems biology are making progress in identifying the myriad of metabolic channels that collectively can be used to diagnose disease and identify appropriate therapies.
