Adiponectin Hormone May Affect A Tooth In The Mouth

In this research, they showed that the protein, adiponectin can perhaps affect how a tooth shifts in the mouth. Fellow Sigrid Haugen and co-workers have, investigated this phenomenon. A frequent problem in orthodontic practice is that the teeth do not remain in their new positions. In the body, some proteins works as small keys that unlock cells and tell them to perform a specific task.

Microbes Affects Every Aspect Of Our Health

In this study, researchers examined nature versus nurture extends to our microbiome, the personal complement of mostly-friendly bacteria we carry around with us. Study after study has found that our microbiome affects nearly every aspect of our health; and its microbial composition, which varies from individual to individual, may hold the key to everything from weight gain to moods. This study has published in Nature.

Patients Head To An Emergency Room Is Pain

In this study, researchers assessed the requirement of emergency rooms for patients. One of the most common reasons patients head to an emergency room is pain. In response, doctors may try something simple at first, like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If that wasn’t effective, the second line of defense has been the big guns.

Role Of Glycans And Proteins In Human Diseases

Researchers have designed a new method for adorning cells with various glycans and screening interactions between glycans and proteins. Nearly every living cell is studded with branching chains of carbohydrates called glycans. Glycans play diverse roles in shaping how a cell interacts with its environment. The study has published online in Nature Communications.

Drugs Used To Treat Pain And Epilepsy

A new research from The Australian National University (ANU) has penetrated down to the molecular level to find similarities across six pharmaceutical drugs used in pain relief, dentist anaesthetic, and treatment of epilepsy, in a bid to find a way to reduce unwanted side-effects. One in five Australians experience chronic pain, and 250,000 Australians live with epilepsy, 40 per cent of which are children.

New Microscope That Can Visualize Biological Imaging

Scientists have established the first microscope platform that can perform super-resolution spatial and temporal imaging, capturing unprecedented views inside living cells. Super-resolution microscopy is a technique that can "see" beyond the diffraction of light, providing unprecedented views of cells and their interior structures and organelles. But Super-resolution microscopy comes with a big limitation: it only offers spatial resolution.
