The condition tuberous sclerosis, due to mutation in one of two tumor suppressor genes, TSC1 or TSC2, causes the growth of non-malignant tumors throughout the body and skin. These tumors can be unsightly and cause serious damage to organs. Growth of tumors in the brain may cause seizures and in the kidney, liver or heart, tumors can disrupt normal function, to the extent of causing the organ to fail. New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Cell and Bioscience shows that...

Scientists may someday be able to develop therapies that target this pathway to treat or prevent a variety of diseases, including diabetes as reported by DiabeticLive.com. Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 17, 2011 For those who have diabetes, there is hope for new treatments and possible a cure. A new molecular pathway related to the regeneration of beta cells in the pancreas has been discovered by a team of researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Scientists may someday be...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- What do you know; two culprits turn out to be related!  Cancer and diabetes appear to have some biology in common.  A pathway that initially drew attention for its role in embryonic stem cells and cancer also influences the odds that mice develop or resist diabetes. According to a new study, mice with high levels of the cancer-promoting proteins become more sensitive to insulin and less prone to diabetes when on a high-fat diet. "This highlights the...

Contrary to what you might think, cancer and diabetes appear to have some biology in common. According to a report in the September 30th issue of the Cell Press journal, Cell, a pathway that initially drew attention for its role in embryonic stem cells and cancer also influences the odds that mice develop or resist diabetes. Mice with high levels of the cancer-promoting proteins Lin28a or Lin28b become more sensitive to insulin and less prone to diabetes when on a high-fat diet, the new...

Researchers at the John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have identified a powerful molecular pathway that regulates the liver's management of insulin and new glucose production, which could lead to new therapies for diabetes. The findings were published online this week in Diabetes, a journal of the American Diabetes Association. Usually, the liver stores excess blood sugar as glycogen, which it...

If the brain goes hungry, Twinkies look a lot better, a study led by researchers at Yale University and the University of Southern California has found. Brain imaging scans show that when glucose levels drop, an area of the brain known to regulate emotions and impulses loses the ability to dampen desire for high-calorie food, according to the study published online September 19 in The Journal of Clinical Investigation. "Our prefrontal cortex is a sucker for glucose," said Rajita Sinha,...

Study reveals that insulin-stimulated glucose uptake–a process that breaks down in type 2 diabetes–requires a previously unidentified protein called CDP138 All cells need glucose (sugar) to produce the energy they need to survive. High glucose levels in the bloodstream (such as occur after a meal), trigger the pancreas to produce insulin. In turn, muscle and fat cells respond to insulin by moving GLUT4, a glucose transporter, from intracellular storage out to the cell surface....
