After 20 years, ENADA still carries the world’s first and only form of NADH that is FDA-approved food grade quality, stabilized and protected by world patents. (PRWEB) April 23, 2014 After 20 years, ENADA still carries the world’s first and only form of FDA-approved NADH that is food grade, stabilized and protected by world patents. Others continue to try to bypass these patents and introduce false NADH products. However un-stabilized NADH degrades rapidly under the influence of...

Manipulating the metabolic process in cells may compensate for defects that can shorten cell life UAlberta researchers are taking a closer look at how two metabolic pathways interact to increase the lifespan of cells with mitochondrial defects. Magnus Friis (PhD ’10) is the lead author of the study, which was published online on April 10 and will be published in the April 24 issue of Cell Reports. Mitochondria produce energy for cells through oxidative metabolism, but the process...

By illuminating mitochondria, UVA researchers shed light on disease and human health. Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) April 03, 2014 Under the microscope, they glow like streetlights, forming tidy rows that follow the striations of muscle tissue. They are mitochondria, the powerhouses of cells, and researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have created a method to illuminate and understand them in living creatures like never before. Not only can the researchers make the...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online During the Northern Hemisphere's growing season, data returned from satellite sensors shows that the Midwest has more photosynthetic activity than any other region of the planet, according to a recent NASA report. School children are taught that plants convert light to energy through the process of photosynthesis. What is less known, however, is that chlorophyll also emits a fraction of the absorbed light as fluorescent glow, which...

Mitochondria, long known as "cellular power plants" for their generation of the key energy source adenosine triphosphate (ATP), are essential for proper cellular functions. Mitochondrial defects are often observed in a variety of diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease, and are the hallmarks of a number of genetic mitochondrial disorders whose manifestations range from muscle weakness to organ failure. Despite a fairly strong understanding of the pathology of...

Photosynthesis Measurements From Space

Carnegie Institution Plants convert energy from sunlight into chemical energy during a process called photosynthesis. This energy is passed on to humans and animals that eat the plants, and thus photosynthesis is the primary source of energy for all life on Earth. But the photosynthetic activity of various regions is changing due to human interaction with the environment, including climate change, which makes large-scale studies of photosynthetic activity of interest. New research from a...

Looking To Geology To Find Answers Of How Life On Earth Originated
2014-03-13 10:20:59

[ Watch the Video: The Origins of Life on Earth ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online By simulating a geologic precursor of cell metabolism, a team of British and American scientists have taken an important step toward understanding how life arose on Earth. Their work is published in a new paper in the journal Astrobiology. “What we are trying to do is to bridge the gap between the geological processes of the early Earth and the emergence of biological life on this...
