Simple Cell Holds 42 Million Protein Molecules; Study Revealed

According a new study, researchers from the University of Toronto's Donnelly Centre, they examined that there are some 42 million protein molecules in a simple cell. Analyzing data from almost two dozen large studies of protein abundance in yeast cells, the team could produce for the first-time reliable estimates for the number of molecules for each protein. The study published in the journal Cell Systems.

Cardioprotective Effects of Fish Oils

A new study published in the PLoS One provides evidence of heterogeneity in the vasodilation mechanisms of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in different vascular beds. The study demonstrates that endothelium removal has little effect on relaxations produced by either PUFA.

Allergy Drug Effective Against Neuromyelitis Optica

The addition of cetirizine (the popular allergy medication under the brand name Zyrtec) to standard therapy is safe, well-tolerated, and may reduce relapses in patients with neuromyelitis optica (NMO), a rare and severe disease that causes inflammation and demyelination ( damage to the myelin – the protective coating of nerve cells), primarily in the optic nerve (optic neuritis), spinal cord (myelitis), and brainstem.
