GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on amino acids markets. The global market for amino acids is forecast to reach US$11.6 billion by the year 2015. Growing demand for amino acids in various end-use markets including animal feed, health foods, dietary supplement products, artificial sweeteners, and cosmetics is expected to fuel the market growth in the coming years. San Jose, California (Vocus/PRWEB) February 21, 2011 -- Amino acids market witnessed a decline in...

2 new studies support a novel approach based on Weizmann Institute scientists' research Much of the devastation of stroke and head trauma is due to damage caused the overproduction of a substance in the brain called glutamate. Preventing this damage has been impossible, until now, as many drugs don't cross the so-called blood-brain barrier, and those that do often don't work as intended. But a method originally devised at the Weizmann Institute of Science may, in the future, offer a way to...

Rice, University of Texas collaborators view C-clamp-like proteins implicated in neuro diseases A digital signal processing technique long used by statisticians to analyze data is helping Houston scientists understand the roots of memory and learning, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases and stroke. Researchers at Rice University and the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) reported today in the journal Nature Chemical Biology that single molecule fluorescence...

Bioengineers from the University of California, San Diego developed an explanation for why some types of neurons die sooner than others in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. These insights, published in the journal Nature Biotechnology on November 21, come from detailed models of brain energy metabolism developed in the Department of Bioengineering at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. The Alzheimer's insights demonstrate how fundamental insights on human metabolism...

DAVIS, Calif. and TOKYO, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and Ajinomoto Company have announced a joint research project to explore whether the regular inclusion of dietary sodium glutamate (MSG) used to enhance the taste of foods, has beneficial effects on eating behavior and body weight management. The trial, which will be conducted by ARS' Western Human Nutrition Research Center (WHNRC), will assess in overweight women...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and fatal brain disease that nearly 5.3 million people are living with today. It causes memory loss and problems with thinking and behavior. Lowering the levels of STtriatal-Enriched tyrosine Phosphatase (STEP), a protein involved in regulating learning and memory, helps tremendously in reversing cognitive deficits in mice with Alzheimer's disease. The study not only showed that it could be effective in helping Alzheimer's patients,...

Lowering levels of a key protein involved in regulating learning and memory"”STtriatal-Enriched tyrosine Phosphatase (STEP)"”reversed cognitive deficits in mice with Alzheimer's disease, Yale School of Medicine researchers report in the October 18 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "This finding provides a rationale for drug discovery and for developing therapeutic agents that could inhibit STEP proteins and might improve the outlook for Alzheimer's disease...

A new class of compounds identified by researchers at Emory University School of Medicine could be developed into drugs for the treatment of schizophrenia. The compounds enhance signaling by molecules in the brain called NMDA receptors, which scientists believe are functioning at low levels in people with schizophrenia. Led by Stephen Traynelis, PhD, professor of pharmacology, a team of Emory researchers sifted through thousands of chemicals and found one, called CIQ, which could selectively...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Ever wonder why even if you're exposed to bacteria in your food that could cause food poisoning, you don't get sick? Now, one scientist presenting at the Society for General Microbiology's meeting says he's uncovered some clues. According to Professor Colin Hill, bacteria use different "tricks" to help them survive inside the body. One of the biggest problems for food-borne bacteria is acid. Acidic conditions in the stomach and gut kill most microbes found in...

Sanford-Burnham scientists uncover new clues to the molecular action of memantine, a drug used to treat Alzheimer's disease, that show why side effects are rare Alzheimer's disease destroys brain cells and their connections (called synapses), causing memory loss and other cognitive problems that disrupt work, hobbies and daily life. Symptoms can be alleviated, in part, by the drug memantine (marketed in the United States as Namenda), which is currently FDA-approved to treat moderate-to-severe...
