Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A Mediterranean diet has long been touted as a surefire way to improve cardiac health, but it has been a mystery as to what the underlying mechanism of the diet was that helped keep the heart healthy. Now, researchers from University of Cambridge say tomatoes may be the answer. The researchers, publishing a paper in the journal PLOS ONE, have found that a daily supplement of an extract found in tomatoes may improve blood vessel...

An antioxidant that targets specific cell structures—mitochondria—may be able to reverse some of the negative effects of aging on arteries, reducing the risk of heart disease, according to a new study by the University of Colorado Boulder. When the research team gave old mice—the equivalent of 70- to 80-year-old humans—water containing an antioxidant known as MitoQ for four weeks, their arteries functioned as well as the arteries of mice with an equivalent human age of just 25 to...

A team of scientists, led by principal investigator David D. Schlaepfer, PhD, a professor in the Department of Reproductive Medicine at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, has found that a protein involved in promoting tumor growth and survival is also activated in surrounding blood vessels, enabling cancer cells to spread into the bloodstream. The findings are published in this week's online issue of the Journal of Cell Biology. Blood vessels are tightly lined...

Cancer cells have something that every prisoner longs for—a master key that allows them to escape. A study in The Journal of Cell Biology describes how a protein that promotes tumor growth also enables cancer cells to use this key and metastasize. Unless it can enter a blood or lymphatic vessel, a cancer cell is imprisoned in the tissue where it arises. The growth factor VEGF is the tumor cell's master key. It loosens connections between endothelial cells that form the lining of blood...

New 'Fluid Biopsy' Technique May Predict When Heart Attack Will Occur
2014-01-10 14:32:54

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new “fluid biopsy” technique could be used to detect the early warning signs of a heart attack and save countless lives in the process. According to a report in the journal Physical Biology, the novel technique involves identifying circulating endothelial cells (CEC), which are thought to be markers for inflammation and high blood clot risk. "The goal of this paper was to establish evidence that these circulating endothelial...

Researchers at Emory and Georgia Tech have developed a potential treatment for atherosclerosis that targets a master controller of the process. The results are scheduled for publication Dec. 18 in the journal Nature Communications. In a twist, the master controller comes from a source that scientists had thought was leftover garbage. It is a micro RNA molecule, which comes from an unused template that remains after punching out ribosomes –– workhorse protein factories found in all...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
