The first dynamic regulatory system that prevents the build-up of toxic metabolites in engineered microbes has been reported by a team of researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI). The JBEI researchers used their system to double the production in Escherichia coli (E. coli) of amorphadiene, a precursor to the premier antimalarial drug artemisinin. Using genome-wide transcriptional analysis, the JBEI researchers identified native regions of...

Findings lead to creation of world´s first liver metabolite data set By analyzing the hundreds of metabolic products present in the liver, researchers with the UC Irvine Center for Epigenetics & Metabolism have discovered that circadian rhythms – our own body clock – greatly control the production of such key building blocks as amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids. They identified more than 600 liver-originated metabolites, which are the chemical substances created...

In a study to the genetic variance of human metabolism, researchers have identified thirty one regions of the genome that were associated with levels of circulating metabolites, i.e., small molecules that take part in various chemical reactions of human body. Many of the studied metabolites are biomarkers for cardiovascular disease or related disorders, thus the loci uncovered may provide valuable insight into the biological processes leading to common diseases. Laboratory tests used in...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Millions of people worldwide suffer from a type of chronic pain called neuropathic pain, which is triggered by nerve damage. Exactly how this pain persists is still unknown, and treatment has been largely ineffective. But a new research is helping doctors understand the pain and fix it! It´s critical and it affects thousands every year, but Gary J. Patti, assistant professor of genetics, chemistry, and medicine at Washington University in St. Louis and research...

Findings suggest new target for drug development Millions of people worldwide suffer from a type of chronic pain called neuropathic pain, which is triggered by nerve damage. Precisely how this pain persists has been a mystery, and current treatments are largely ineffective. But a team led by scientists from The Scripps Research Institute, using a new approach known as metabolomics, has now discovered a major clue: dimethylsphingosine (DMS), a small-molecule byproduct of cellular membranes...
