Role Of LRH-1 During Inflammation Regulates T-cell Functions

Role Of LRH-1 During Inflammation Regulates T-cell Functions

The research study discovering the role that the LRH-1 protein plays in the immune system; Inhibiting this protein could help treat inflammation diseases. Immune cells prevent bacteria, parasites or viruses from entering the body when, for example, the intestinal epithelium is injured. They respond with restricted inflammatory reactions, which are controlled via various processes in…

Study Of The Genes That Protecting Cells From Zika virus

Zika virus is an arthropod borne emerging pathogen cells causing febrile illness. This virus effecting over 60 million people, mostly in South America. It has potentially devastating consequences for pregnant women and their unborn children, many of whom are born with severe microcephaly and other developmental and neurological abnormalities. As there is currently no vaccine…

Intense Selective Pressures On The Major Malaria Vector

Intense Selective Pressures On The Major Malaria Vector

As the study advancing the intense selective pressures on the major malaria vector Anopheles gambiae, caused by the widespread use of insecticides for malaria control; to investigate the role of CNVs in the evolution of insecticide resistance. Many diseases, such as malaria, Zika and Dengue; are transmitted by mosquitoes, making control of mosquito populations a…

Neuromuscular Connections Are Maintained After Nerve Lesions

Neuromuscular Connections Are Maintained After Nerve Lesions

Anatomically after an nerve injury, the protein complex mTORC1 takes over an important function in skeletal muscle to maintain the neuromuscular junction, the synapse between the nerve and muscle fiber. Skeletal muscle is a highly plastic tissue, whose function strictly depends on neural activity. Nerve injury leads to muscle atrophy and to the remodeling of…

Congenital Heart Defects In High Intensity Oil And Gas Areas

Mothers living near more intensity oil and gas development activity have a 40-70% higher; chance of having children with congenital heart defects (CHDs) compared to those living in areas of less intense activity; according to a new study from researchers at the Colorado School of Public Health. “They observed more children were being born with…

New Procedure Used To Reopen Blocked Artery Causing Heart Attack

The Researchers in the Medical Sciences Division have established a key cause of micro blood vessels constricting during surgery to reopen a blocked artery; also identified a potential therapeutic target to block the mechanism behind it. During the emergency procedure used to reopen the blocked artery causing a heart attack, smaller “micro” blood vessels can remain…

New Electronic Skin System Give Exceptional Sense Of Touch

Robots and prosthetic devices may soon have a sense of touch equivalent to, or better than, the human skin with the Asynchronous Coded Electronic Skin (ACES), an artificial nervous system developed by a team of researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS). The new electronic skin system achieved ultra-high responsiveness and robustness to damage;…
