KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CSL Behring announced today that it has been granted Orphan Drug Designations (ODD) by the European Commission for the development of its recombinant fusion protein linking coagulation factor VIIa with albumin (rVIIa-FP), a novel therapy to treat hemophilia A and hemophilia B patients with inhibitors. The designations would entitle CSL Behring to exclusively market recombinant factor VIIa fused with albumin in Europe for a period of 10...

Fables have long cast scorpions as bad-natured killers of hapless turtles that naively agree to ferry them across rivers. Michigan State University scientists, however, see them in a different light. Ke Dong, MSU insect toxicologist and neurobiologist, studied the effects of scorpion venom with the hopes of finding new ways to protect plants from bugs. The results, which are published in the current issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry, have revealed new ways in which the venom...

WAYNE, N.J., April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new storage option for Kogenate® FS, antihemophilic factor (recombinant), now allowing the product to be stored at room temperature (up to 77 degrees F) for up to one year. Compared with the previous three-month room temperature option, this new storage option for Kogenate FS offers added convenience for patients...

Key finding has the potential to improve crops' response to drought, disease and other stresses The most elaborate heterotrimeric G-protein network known to date in the plant kingdom has been identified by Dr. Sona Pandey, principal investigator at the Danforth Plant Science Center.  The results of this research are published in the recent article, "An elaborate heterotirmeric G-protein family from soybean expands the diversity of G-protein networks," in the New Phytologist. G-proteins...

The proteins that provide cells with a sense of personal space could lead to a therapeutic target for Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2), an inherited cancer disorder, according to researchers at The Wistar Institute. Their findings, which appear in the April 12 issue of the journal Cancer Cell, could have profound implications for NF2 and related cancers, such as mesothelioma. The researchers describe, for the first time, that Merlin, the protein encoded within the NF2 gene interacts with a...

WAYNE, N.J., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To help raise money and awareness for bleeding disorders, Bayer is launching the 2011 Bayer Virtual Walk for Hemophilia, the first interactive program of its kind in support of people with hemophilia. The Virtual Walk is Bayer's latest digital offering for the hemophilia community. The company is asking people to step up for an important cause by virtually walking online for the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) and its local participating...

As Parkinson's Awareness Month gets underway, a Canadian-led international study is providing important new insight into Parkinson's disease and paving the way for new avenues for clinical trials. The study, led by Dr. Michael Schlossmacher in Ottawa, provides the first link between the most common genetic risk factor for Parkinson's and the hallmark accumulation of a protein called alpha-synuclein within the brains of people with Parkinson's. It is published in the most recent edition of the...

A protein pathway that may hold the secret to understanding Parkinson's disease has been discovered and explained by Iowa State University researchers. Anumantha Kanthasamy, a distinguished professor of biomedical sciences and the W. Eugene and Linda R. Lloyd Endowed Chair in Neurotoxicology at the ISU College of Veterinary Medicine, has been working to understand the complex mechanisms of the disease for more than a decade. He believes this recent discovery offers hope for the cure. The...

Investigators Build a Case Linking Chemical DOPAL to Illness In new research from Saint Louis University, investigators have found evidence that a toxin produced by the brain is responsible for the series of cellular events that lead to Parkinson's disease. The study, published in PLoS One, found that the brain toxin DOPAL plays a key role in killing the dopamine neurons which trigger the illness. In earlier research, Saint Louis University investigators found that DOPAL seemed to be...

Researchers at the University at Buffalo have devised two new ways of "stapling" peptide helices to prevent these medically important molecules from losing their shape and degrading in the presence of enzymes. The discovery could help speed the development of peptide-based drugs against diseases including cancer. UB scientists say the methods they pioneered are simpler than existing techniques, one of which employs an expensive ruthenium catalyst to connect chemical side chains that protrude...

Paneth Cells
2012-07-01 19:03:07

Paneth Cells are one of four principal cell types found in the epithelium of the small intestine; the other three are the goblet cell, enterocyte, and enteroendocrine cell. Paneth cells may also be found in the cecum and appendix, although sporadically. These cells are identifiable microscopically by their location just below the intestinal stem cells in the intestinal glands. and the large eosinophilic refractile granules that occupy most of their cytoplasm. These granules consist of...
