Older men who exert themselves in the heat for prolonged periods may find they are at higher risk of heat stroke and related injuries the following day, a small experiment suggests.
Researchers have determined that "cellular housekeeping" can extend the lifespan and healthspan of mammals. They found that mice with persistently increased levels of autophagy in the process a cell use to dispose of unwanted or toxic substances that can harm cellular health live longer and are healthier. The study was published in Nature.

Playing video games that involve physical exertion (known as exergaming) improves quality of life in patients with heart failure, according to late breaking results from the HF-Wii study presented at Heart Failure 2018 and the World Congress on Acute Heart Failure, a European Society of Cardiology congress.
Researchers have found a new way to block a root cause of pain. The key is a naturally occurring protein called apolipoprotein A-I binding protein (AIBP). AIBP binds to toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), a protein that sits on the surface of cells like an antenna, searching for signs of infection or tissue damage. The researchers found that treating mice with a single spinal injection of AIBP and thus switching TLR4 "off" prevented and reversed inflammation and cellular events associated with pain processing. The study was published in Cell Reports.

According to a recent study, researchers have identified three different modeling features inherent in crosslink data. A modeling macromolecular assembly with restraints from crosslinking mass spectrometry (XL-MS) tends to focus solely on distance violation.
(1) Expected distance between crosslinked residues
(2) Violation of the crosslinker's maximum bound
(3) Solvent accessibility of crosslinked residues.
