Nanosponges Soak Up Toxins Released By Venom And Bacterial Infections
2013-04-15 10:52:43

University of California - San Diego [ Watch The Video ] Engineers at the University of California, San Diego have invented a "nanosponge" capable of safely removing a broad class of dangerous toxins from the bloodstream — including toxins produced by MRSA, E. coli, poisonous snakes and bees. These nanosponges, which thus far have been studied in mice, can neutralize "pore-forming toxins," which destroy cells by poking holes in their cell membranes. Unlike other anti-toxin...

Research presented at the Genetics Society of America's ongoing annual Drosophila Conference in Washington, D.C., suggests that mannitol, a sugar substitute, could lead to a future treatment for Parkinson's disease Researchers from Tel Aviv University describe experiments that could lead to a new approach for treating Parkinson's disease (PD) using a common sweetener, mannitol. This research is presented today at the Genetics Society of America's 54th Annual Drosophila Research Conference...

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have discovered how the most common genetic mutations in familial Parkinson's disease damage brain cells. The study, which published online today in the journal Nature Neuroscience, could also open up treatment possibilities for both familial Parkinson's and the more common form of Parkinson's that is not inherited. Parkinson's disease is a gradually progressing disorder of the nervous system that causes stiffness or...

[ Watch the Video: Rice University Opens New Window on Parkinson´s Disease ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists at Rice University have found a new way to look inside living cells to see the insoluble fibrillar deposits associated with Parkinson's disease. Two laboratories at the university helped lead to the spectroscopic technique that could be a valuable tool for fighting the disease. The team wrote in the Journal of the American Chemical...

New insights into what causes uncontrollable bleeding in hemophilia patients are provided in a study published by Cell Press on November 20th in the Biophysical Journal. By revealing that blood clots spread in traveling waves through vessels, the study offers new strategies that could lead to the development of more effective treatments for hemophilia as well as common cardiovascular disorders. "Disorders of blood coagulation are a leading and immediate cause of mortality and morbidity in...

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...
