Chalcone-isomerase protein holds much promise of economic benefit A curious twist in a family of plant proteins called chalcone- isomerase recently was discovered by Salk Institute for Biological Studies scientist Joseph Noel and colleagues at Iowa State University led by Eve Wurtele. Pursuing basic scientific discovery, they found three similar proteins that could soon translate into positive results for bio-renewable fuels, commodity chemicals like plastics, food security and...

A new study suggests that eating foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish, chicken, salad dressing and nuts, may be associated with lower blood levels of a protein related to Alzheimer's disease and memory problems. The research is published in the May 2, 2012, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. "While it's not easy to measure the level of beta-amyloid deposits in the brain in this type of study, it is relatively easy to...

The candy bar you swallowed right before jumping on your bicycle keeps you going only so long before the muscles in your legs and hips reach for something with more power — the long chain fatty acids stored to keep you moving for hours. In a report in the journal Cell Metabolism, Dr. Bert O'Malley, professor and chair of molecular and cellular biology at Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Brian York, assistant professor in the same department, and colleagues at BCM describe how a...

In the online May 2 issue of the journal Cell Metabolism, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine publish three distinct articles exploring: the complex interactions of lipids and inflammation in insulin resistance the roles of omega 3 fatty acids and a particular gene in fighting inflammation how elevated levels of a particular protein might delay the muscle-destroying effects of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Type 2 diabetes has reached epidemic...

(Ivanhoe Newswire)-- With so many American's suffering from Obesity, a new discovery with soy protein could help thousands. A University of Illinois study shows how soy protein could significantly reduce fat accumulation and triglycerides in the livers of obese patients by partially restoring the function of a key signaling pathway in the organ. "Almost a third of American adults have fatty liver disease, many of them without symptoms," Hong Chen Hong Chen, an assistant professor of...

University of Illinois scientists report that soy protein may significantly reduce fat accumulation and triglycerides in the livers of obese persons. And they've discovered why it happens: soy restores partial function of that organ's key signaling pathway. "Almost a third of American adults have fatty liver disease, many of them without symptoms. Obesity is a key risk factor for this condition, which can lead to liver failure," said Hong Chen, a U of I assistant professor of food science...

A new study presented today at the International Liver Congress 2012 demonstrates that the gut microbiota has a profound systemic effect on bile acid metabolism. Bile acids are synthesized from cholesterol in the liver and further metabolized by the gut microbiota into secondary bile acids. The main function of bile acid is to promote processing of dietary fat. In addition, hepatic synthesis of bile acids is a major mechanism of cholesterol breakdown in the body. Farnesoid-x-receptor (FXR)...
