Importance Of Fatty Acid Balance In Mice Showing Chronic Disease

Importance Of Fatty Acid Balance In Mice Showing Chronic Disease

By using the novel transgenic mouse models were they developing; the study has providing new evidence; that it is the ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids; rather than the total amount of them; that influencing risk of developing chronic disease. Many lines of evidence now support the notion that the omega-6/omega-3 imbalance is a…

Mice Showing Degenerative Central Nervous Disease Causing By Prions

Mice Showing Degenerative Central Nervous Disease Causing By Prions

An experimental treatment have slowing the progression of scrapie; a degenerative central nervous disease causing by prions, in laboratory mice and greatly extending the rodents lives; according to research study. Prion diseases occur when normally harmless prion protein molecules become abnormal and gather in clusters and filaments in the body, including the brain. The diseases…

Gut Bacteria Reducing Risk Of Colorectal Cancer In Mice

Gut Bacteria Reducing Risk Of Colorectal Cancer In Mice

Research study on the bacteria; were the study finding that; the genetically tweaking gut bacteria reducing risk of the colorectal cancer in mice. The editing of the genes of the bacteria present in the guts of mice; could help reduce the inflammation and associating risk of colorectal cancers. Study could be the beginning of novel…

Study Of Brain Astroglia Regulating Neuronal Function In Mice

Study Of Brain Astroglia Regulating Neuronal Function In Mice

As the study finding new evidence; that a protein pumped out of some but not all populations of “helper” cells in the brain, called astrocytes; playing a specific role in directing the formation of connections among neurons needed for learning and forming new memories. The role of astroglia in regulating neuronal function; little is knowing…

Study Of The Immunity Altering Drugs In Mice

Study Of The Immunity Altering Drugs In Mice

The study on the immunity altering drugs together significantly extended the lives of mice injecting with human ovarian cancer cells, an early proof-of-concept experiment; that may advance treatment for the most deadly although rare gynecologic malignancy in humans. Although ovarian cancer has a low incidence rate, it remaining as the most deadly gynecologic malignancy. The…

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…

Symptoms Of Muscular Dystrophy In Mice Models

Symptoms Of Muscular Dystrophy In Mice Models

Research study with mices gene involving in producing proteins; that promote muscle strength in muscular dystrophy mice models could reduce symptoms. Muscular dystrophy is an inherited condition in which muscle mass attenuates, resulting in weakness and eventually disability. Prior research has shown that caused by mutations in a gene called Lama2. The mutations prevent the gene…

Research On Adhesive Dressings To Accelerate Wound Closure

Research On Adhesive Dressings To Accelerate Wound Closure

A new, scalable approach to speeding up wound healing has been developed based on heat-responsive hydrogels; that are mechanically active, stretchy, tough, highly adhesive and antimicrobial active adhesive dressings (AADs). As skin injuries are painful and can compromise the integrity and protective function of the skin; resulting in infections. Most treatments for skin wounds involve…

Brain Protein Autistic Person Alters Behavior In Mice

Brain Protein Autistic Person Alters Behavior In Mice

The study on the mutation that encodes a brain protein in a child; with autism has been placing into the brains of mice. These mice then showed severe alterations of specific behaviors that closely resemble those seen in human autism spectrum disorder. The brain protein studied is the dopamine transporter, or DAT. Certain brain neurons…

Research On New Anticancer Drug Strategy

Research On New Anticancer Drug Strategy

Ribonucleotide reductase (RNR), also known as ribonucleotide diphosphate reductase, is an enzyme that catalyzes the formation of deoxyribonucleotides from ribonucleotides. The enzyme ribonucleotide reductase is a bottleneck for cancer cell growth and anticancer drugs. But the ribonucleotide reductase controls the supply of DNA building blocks, which cancer cells need in abundance for fast growth. Cancer…

Identification Of Genes Linked To Death From Sepsis In Mice

Identification Of Genes Linked To Death From Sepsis In Mice

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition; that arising when the body’s response to infection causing injury to its own tissues and organs. That occuring when the body’s immune response to infection spirals out of control. But the bacteria in the bloodstream trigger immune cells to release powerful molecules called cytokines to quickly activate the body’s defenses.…

Study On The p73 Wound Healing Factor

Study On The p73 Wound Healing Factor

p73 is a protein related to the p53 tumor protein. Because of its structural resemblance to p53, it has also been considered a tumor suppressor. Study finding that p73 is requiring for the timely healing of cutaneous wound. In normal tissue, p73 expression increasing in response to wounding; whereas p73 deficiency resulting in delaying wound healing, they reporting…
