Ras Protein’s Interact with Cell Membrane Surfaces

According to the study, researchers estimated exactly that Ras proteins interact with cell membrane surfaces. Protein systems make up the complex signaling pathways that control whether a cell divide or, in some cases, metastasizes. Ras proteins have long been the focus of cancer research because of their role as 'on/off switch' signaling pathways that control cell division and failure to die like healthy cells do.

Efficacy and Tolerability of Agents in the Long-Acting GLP-1R

The study evaluated two once-weekly GLP-1R agonists, semaglutide and dulaglutide, at both low and high approved doses, in about 1,200 patients with type 2 diabetes not well controlled with metformin. With more evidence of variability in efficacy and tolerability of agents in the long-acting glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1R) agonist class of diabetes medicines. The study is been published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.

Macrophages Contribute To A Type Of Heart Failure

In this study, researchers invented for the first time, that the immune cells called macrophages contribute to a type of heart failure for which there currently is no effective treatment. They defines finding how macrophage activity leads to the development of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) in mouse models of the condition, which accounts for around half of all human heart failure cases. The study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine.

To Study Anatomy of Head And Neck Musculoskeletal System

In this study, researchers assessed the anatomical network analysis of primate head and neck musculoskeletal system. Network theory is increasingly being used to study morphological modularity and integration. Anatomical network analysis (AnNA) is a framework for quantitatively characterizing the topological organization of anatomical structures and providing an operational way to compare structural integration and modularity. 

Viruses That Can Produce Insulin-Like Hormones That Are Active on Human Cells

According to this study, researchers identified four viruses that can produce insulin-like hormones that are active on human cells. Every cell in your body responds to the hormone insulin, and if that process starts to fail, they get diabetes. The discovery brings new possibilities for revealing biological mechanisms that may cause diabetes or cancer. The study published in the journal PNAS.
