Researchers have long wondered what causes people to lose muscle strength as they age and how exercise can prevent it from happening. Now, McMaster University researchers have discovered a key … Continue Reading Researchers identify protein required to maintain muscle mass and strength during aging.
Using proteomics techniques to study injured optic nerves, researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital have identified previously unrecognized proteins and pathways involved in nerve regeneration. The new study showed that adding … Continue Reading Researchers see an unprecedented degree of nerve regeneration using proteomics.
An enzyme secreted by the body’s fat tissue controls energy levels in the brain, according to new research from Washington University School. The data findings, in mice, underscore a role … Continue Reading Study shows that low body fat percentage is not good for the brain.
A research team at UC San Francisco has discovered an RNA molecule called Pnky that can be manipulated to increase the production of neurons from neural stem cells. The opensource … Continue Reading Researchers identify noncoding RNA crucial for stem cell suppression in the brain.
A group of researchers from Washington University, Agios Pharmaceuticals and ITMO University has discovered new metabolic mechanisms that regulate macrophage polarization, the unique ability of these immune cells to change … Continue Reading Epigenetic metabolic pathways mapped that regulate the macrophage’s role in immune response.
Drug testing is most commonly performed using urine samples. The methodology and regulations for reliable urine testing are well developed and can be considered the current gold standard for drug … Continue Reading The first method of detecting drugs of abuse in exhaled breath has been validated.
Epigenetic signals help determine which genes are activated at which time in a given cell. A novel analytical method enables systematic characterization of the relevant epigenetic tags, and reveals that … Continue Reading Scientists begin to hone Precision Epigenetics.
Researchers for the first time have developed a method to track through the human body the movement of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs, as extraordinarily tiny amounts of these potential … Continue Reading New technology tracks carcinogens as they are metabolised by the human body.
