Protein Complex Plays A Major Role In Gene Expression

Researchers have a deeper understanding of a large switch/sucrose nonfermentable (SWI/SNF) protein complex that plays a pivotal role in plant and human gene expression that causes life-threatening diseases such as cancer. A team of scientists in the department of biochemistry and biophysics and Institute for Plant Genomics and Biotechnology at Texas A&M University in College Station. The study was published in the journal Nature.

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Disrupts The Heart's Normal Function

According to a study, researchers have discovered a genetic mutation linked to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) disrupts the heart's normal function. They revealed that the mutation prevents the heart from increasing the amount of force it produces when it needs to pump additional blood around the body. The study was published in the Journal of General Physiology, reveals that the mutation prevents the heart from increasing the amount of force it produces when it needs to pump additional blood around the body.

Rivaroxaban vs. Aspirin Against Recurrent Stroke After ESUS

In an "unfortunately negative trial," the factor Xa inhibitor rivaroxaban was not superior to aspirin in preventing recurrent stroke after a first embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS) but was associated with a significant increase in bleeding events, researchers report. "Unfortunately and surprisingly to us, the trial was negative," co-principal study investigator Robert Hart.

Children Exposure to ADHD Medications Raised In US

A new study conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Policy and the Central Ohio Poison Center at Nationwide Children's Hospital found that there were more than 156,000 calls to US Poison Control Centers regarding exposures to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medications among children averaging 200 calls each week or 29 calls per day
