A drug that blocks the action of the enzyme Cdk5 could substantially reduce brain damage if administered shortly after a stroke.
A specific protein once thought to exist only in the brain may play a crucial role in a deadly form of thyroid cancer, as well as other cancers, and provide a fresh target for researchers seeking ways to stop its progression
Scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School have found that a common cancer protein leads a second, totally different life in normal adult brain cells: It helps regulates memory formation and may be implicated in Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's disease is characterized by abnormal proteins that stick together in little globs, disrupting cognitive function (thinking, learning, and memory).
Among stem cell biologists there are few better-known proteins than nestin, whose very presence in an immature cell identifies it as a "stem cell," such as a neural stem cell.
Researchers have identified a biochemical switch required for nerve cells to respond to DNA damage.
A team of scientists has discovered three molecules â€“â€“ from a search of 58,000 compounds â€“â€“ that appear to inhibit a key perpetrator of Alzheimer's disease.
- Having no light.
- Of or relating to the region of a body of water that is not reached by sunlight and in which photosynthesis is unable to occur.
