In mice, dietary changes slow down progression of the disease Working with genetically engineered mice, Johns Hopkins neuroscientists report they have identified what they believe is the cause of the vast disintegration of a part of the brain called the corpus striatum in rodents and people with Huntington's disease: loss of the ability to make the amino acid cysteine. They also found that disease progression slowed in mice that were fed a diet rich in cysteine, which is found in foods...

By adding covalent bonds to proteins, researchers can design new drugs, imaging agents, or molecules that aid basic research Proteins are the workhorses of cells, adopting conformations that allow them to set off chemical reactions, send signals and transport materials. But when a scientist is designing a new drug, trying to visualize the processes inside cells, or probe how molecules interact with each other, they can't always find a protein that will do the job they want. Instead, they...

Thiols are sulfur-containing molecules found in most proteins of the human body. Characterized by their 'garlicky' smell, they also give coffee, sweat and the spray of skunks their unique odor. Because they are so widespread in biology, medicine and materials science, thiols are ideal targets for connecting molecules like drugs or polymers together, except that they must first be fitted with a chemical group that acts like an adaptor to other molecules. One of the most potentially useful of...

Possibly energy-conserving, switch suggests metabolic changes that researchers might exploit to fight systemic illness For the first time, researchers have found a particular kind of molecular switch in the food poisoning bacteria Salmonella Typhimurium under infection-like conditions. This switch, using a process called S-thiolation, appears to be used by the bacteria to respond to changes in the environment during infection and might protect it from harm, researchers report this week...

A new study in Biological Psychiatry reports Autism is a developmental disorder that affects social and communication skills. Irritability is a symptom of autism that can complicate adjustment at home and other settings, and can manifest itself in aggression, tantrums, and self-injurious behavior. These disruptive behaviors are frequently observed in children with autism, which may considerably affect their ability to function at home or in school. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is approved by...

The U.S. Patent Trademark Office has issued a patent for a discovery involving a pleiotropic delivery system that can revolutionize Immune System support for physiological replenishment of Glutathione for The ProImmune Company. Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) April 05, 2012 The tripeptide Glutathione is considered the master antioxidant and primary protector of the Immune System. It protects the body from toxins and oxidative stress. Glutathione is synthesized intracellularly, in every cell of the...

A new method to reveal the structure of proteins could help researchers understand biological molecules — both those involved in causing disease and those performing critical functions in healthy cells.   For roughly a decade, a technique called solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has allowed researchers to detect the arrangements of atoms in proteins that defy study by traditional laboratory tools such as X-ray crystallography. But translating solid state...
