Bacterial Wall-Building Protein Has Been Targeted

A study determined that the wall that surrounds bacteria to shield them from external assaults has long been a tantalizing target for drug therapies. Indeed, some of modern medicine's most strong antibiotics disarm harmful bacteria by disrupting the proteins that build their protective armor. The study was published in Nature.

Molecular Structure Of ‘Anti-Aging’ Protein

Researcher reveals the molecular structure of the so-called "anti-aging" protein alpha Klotho (a-Klotho) and how it transmits a hormonal signal that controls a variety of biologic processes. The study was published in Nature. They demonstrated that mice lacking either a-Klotho or the hormone FGF23 suffered from premature and multiple organ failures as well as other conditions, including early onset cardiovascular disease, cancer, and cognitive decline.
