A new study has created an analog of what researchers think the first multicellular cooperation might have looked like, showing that yeast cells"”in an environment that requires them to work for their food"”grow and reproduce better in multicellular clumps than singly. A team of researchers, led by Harvard professor Andrew Murray, found that cells of brewer's yeast that clumped together were able more effectively to manipulate and absorb sugars in their environment than were...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- The past two decades have witnessed an epidemic spread of obesity-related diseases in Western countries. Elucidating the biological mechanism that links overnutrition to obesity could prove crucial in reducing obesity levels. Researchers found a pathway that directs the brain to sense the body's glucose dynamics, and they believe that a defect of this glucose-sensing pathway contributes to the development of obesity. The correction of this defect can normalize the whole...

Glucose meters aren't just for diabetics anymore. Thanks to University of Illinois chemists, they can be used as simple, portable, inexpensive meters for a number of target molecules in blood, serum, water or food. Chemistry professor Yi Lu and postdoctoral researcher Yu Xiang published their findings in the journal Nature Chemistry. "The advantages of our method are high portability, low cost, wide availability and quantitative detection of a broad range of targets in medical diagnostics and...

Many people are careful to follow a low glycaemic index (GI) diet. However, the glycaemic index concept has some shortcomings, in the view of one young researcher, who has developed a complementary method, "Ëœglycaemic profile' or GP. The findings were recently published in Nutrition Journal. "White pasta is one example of a product which in some cases has received a bad reputation because of a high GI. However, white pasta produces just as good a blood glucose response as...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ Why do we constantly crave that chocolate or those sweet tarts? Scientists have discovered that taste cells have several addition sugar detectors on top of the previously known sweet receptor. This could be a key step in developing strategies to limit overconsumption, according to this study. "Detecting the sweetness of nutritive sugars is one of the most important tasks of our taste cells," senior author Robert F. Margolskee, M.D., Ph.D., a molecular...

Multiple taste cell sensors contribute to detecting sugars A new research study dramatically increases knowledge of how taste cells detect sugars, a key step in developing strategies to limit overconsumption. Scientists from the Monell Center and collaborators have discovered that taste cells have several additional sugar detectors other than the previously known sweet receptor. "Detecting the sweetness of nutritive sugars is one of the most important tasks of our taste cells," said senior...

Indiana University scientists have solved a perplexing mystery regarding one of the body's main energy storage molecules, in the process shedding light on a possible route to treatment of a rare but deadly disease in teenagers. The disease occurs when a genetic mutation causes excessive amounts of phosphate to build up in glycogen. Glycogen is a chain-like molecule the body uses to temporarily store glucose when it's not needed to provide energy for cellular activities. The excess phosphate...
