ST. LOUIS, June 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In research led by a Saint Louis University investigator, molecular biologists have discovered a way to harness the enzyme thrombin's anti-blood clotting properties. The finding opens the door to new medications that will treat diseases related to thrombosis, the presence of blood clots in blood vessels, which is responsible for nearly a third of all deaths in the U.S. "Thrombosis is one of the most prevalent causes of fatal disease," said...

UC San Diego researchers say too much alpha-synuclein shuts down cell communications, helps cause dementia In diverse neurodegenerative diseases ranging from Parkinson's to Alzheimer's, researchers have long noted accumulations of a little-understood neuronal protein called ÃŽ±-synuclein. Pathological and genetic evidence strongly suggested that excessive ÃŽ±-synuclein played a role in the evolution of these diseases, but it was unclear how too much...

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- CSL Behring announced today the schedule for its 9th annual Gettin' in the Game(SM) Junior National Championship (JNC) competition in golf and baseball. The JNC is a series of one-day athletic events for children with bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia or von Willebrand disease (VWD), and their families. During the JNC young people with a bleeding disorder have the opportunity to connect with and compete against others who have these...

Researchers in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Thomas Jefferson University have found that the level of a single protein in the tiny roundworm C. elegans determines how long it lives. Worms born without this protein, called arrestin, lived about one-third longer than normal, while worms that had triple the amount of arrestin lived one-third less. The research also showed that arrestin interacts with several other proteins within cells to regulate longevity. The human...

All life on earth is threatened by chaos. In this sense, a cell is like a ship which could at any moment sink in a sea of chaos. It must constantly consume energy to maintain the same level of order to avoid going under "“ metaphorically speaking, the infiltrating water of chaos needs to be pumped out, permanently. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund have now discovered how cells ensure the correct distribution of proteins throughout their...

NEW YORK, April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research today announced more than $3 million in previously unannounced awards ending the first quarter of 2010. The funded projects complement the Foundation's annually occurring Pipeline Programs and Critical Challenges in Parkinson's Disease initiatives, which aim to accelerate PD therapeutic development. Many of the 17 different projects announced today provide additional funding to advance...

New research provides crucial insight into the pathogenic mechanisms of Parkinson's disease (PD), a prevalent neurodegenerative disorder. The study appears in the April 19 issue of the Journal of Cell Biology. The identification of inherited mutations in genes such as Parkin and PINK1 ( PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 ) has revealed key factors in the development of familial forms of the disease. Parkin adds ubiquitin molecules to other proteins to trigger their degradation, while PINK1...

Location, location, location determines a protein's role Using a method they developed to watch moment to moment as they move a molecule to precise sites inside live human cells, Johns Hopkins scientists are closer to understanding why and how a protein at one location may signal division and growth, and the same protein at another location, death. Their research, published Feb. 14 in Nature Methods, expands on a more limited method using a chemical tool to move proteins inside of cells to...

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...

tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
