By Using A Technique, DNA Code Is Read And Interpreted

According to this study, researchers have revealed incredible images of how the DNA code is read and interpreted revealing new detail about one of the fundamental processes of life. They used an advanced form of electron microscopy called Cryo-EM, for which the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded in 2017, to zoom in and capture images of the reading mechanism in extraordinary concept. The study published in the journal Nature could open new approaches to cancer treatment.

Marine Fungus Metabolite Suppresses Osteoclastogenesis

In a new study, the researchers have reported that Mactanamide may have a significant role in the inhibition of osteoclast differentiation. Mactanamide is a new fungistatic diketopiperazine containing the uncommon amino acid d-2, 6-dihydroxyphenylalanine, has been first isolated from the mycelium of an undescribed marine fungus of the genus Aspergillus sp. from the surface of the brown marine alga Sargassum sp.

Arsenic Exposure and Its Impacts on Fetal health

Chronic arsenic exposure has been well studied and evaluated in the context of adult disease; however, little is known about the contribution of fetal arsenic exposure to disease onset and progression. Several studies established a strong association between chronic arsenic exposure and an increased prevalence of hypertension, atherosclerosis, and ischemic heart disease-related mortalities

Migraine-Preventive Medications Improve Quality of Life

In a new study, researchers have found that anticonvulsants and triptans for a menstrual migraine (MM) were less frequently prescribed by primary care physicians (PCPs) compared with speciality care physicians. There were no significant differences in the prescription patterns of beta-blockers and antidepressants between PCPs and speciality care physicians. These findings could help address prescription patterns of preventive medications for a migraine in primary care settings.
