With a new insight into a model of Parkinson´s disease, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine have identified a novel target for mitigating some of the disease´s toll on the brain. Narayan G. Avadhani, Harriet Ellison Woodward Professor of Biochemistry and chair of the Department of Animal Biology at Penn Vet, was the senior author on the research. Other department members contributing to the work included Prachi Bajpai, Michelle C. Sangar,...

Photosynthesis - The Last Link In The Chain
2013-01-05 05:45:05

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For almost three decades, scientists have tried to identify a particular enzyme involved in regulating electron transport during photosynthesis. Now, a research team from Ludwig Maximilians Universitat (LMU) has found the missing link, which turns out to be not so new. All life on Earth is sustained by photosynthesis, a sunlight powered process that provides energy-rich compounds and the molecular oxygen that higher organisms depend...

Carbs Are The Fuel Of Choice At High Altitude
2012-12-07 13:13:53

Cell Press Mice living in the high-altitude, oxygen-starved environment of the Andean mountains survive those harsh conditions by fueling their muscles with carbohydrates. The findings, reported online on December 6 in Current Biology, a Cell Press publication, provide the first compelling evidence of a clear difference in energy metabolism between high- and low-altitude native mammals. "The high-altitude mice we examined in this study are a rare exception to a general exercise fuel use...

Yeast Mothers Sacrifice All For Their Babies
2012-11-09 10:28:33

University of California - San Francisco UCSF discovery shows evolution at work in the laboratory A mother's willingness to sacrifice her own health and safety for the sake of her children is a common narrative across cultures — and by no means unique to humans alone. Female polar bears starve, dolphin mothers stop sleeping and some spider moms give themselves as lunch for their crawly babies' first meal. Now an unexpected discovery at the University of California, San...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Boosting the activity of a particular enzyme can help block tumors from growing, according to research published in Nature Chemical Biology. Cancer cells use up most of their energy by reproducing themselves, but in order to do this they must produce new cellular building blocks like DNA, carbohydrates and lipids. Biologists found that jacking up the activity of the enzyme pyruvate kinase can disrupt the production of tumors...
