This 3D neuro-model could help uncover early stage biomarkers of disease, in turn supporting earlier diagnosis and improving understanding of disease progression.READ MORE
A simple and inexpensive new test can diagnose patients with antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria in a matter of minutes.READ MORE
An insulin-binding protein in fruit flies could provide new opportunities for tackling mosquitoes that carry diseases such as malaria and yellow fever, scientists at the University of York have found.
Studies in mice have demonstrated that obesity-induced inflammation contributes to the risk of colorectal cancer, but evidence in humans has been scarce. A new study shows that two inflammatory proteins in the colon increase in parallel with increasing weight in humans.READ MORE
Researchers say they have discovered a gene mutation that slows the metabolism of sugar in the gut, giving people who have the mutation a lower risk of diabetes, obesity, heart failure, and even death. The researchers say their finding could provide the basis for drug therapies that could mimic the workings of this gene mutation.
A special imaging technique has shown how membrane proteins change their structure when they move molecules out of the cell.READ MORE
A computer-guided algorithm may help scientists find just the right spot to split a protein and then reassemble it to functionality, according to a new study. Researchers say this could be another step — perhaps even a dance step — toward using chemical and light signals to create new medical treatments and biosensors.READ MORE
Researchers discover that the Scarlet protein -- associated with eye color -- in fruit flies has a neuroprotective effect on dopaminergic neurons -- the same neurons that are lost in Parkinson's disease sufferers and responsible for impairment of movement coordination
