Researchers at Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed microscopic polymer beads that can deliver an antioxidant enzyme made naturally by the body into the heart. Injecting the enzyme-containing particles into rats' hearts after a simulated heart attack reduced the number of dying cells and resulted in improved heart function days later. Michael Davis, PhD, is presenting the results Sunday evening at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in...

Marauding molecules cause the tissue damage that underlies heart attacks, sunburn, Alzheimer's and hangovers. But scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine say they may have found ways to combat the carnage after discovering an important cog in the body's molecular detoxification machinery. The culprit molecules are oxygen byproducts called free radicals. These highly unstable molecules start chain reactions of cellular damage -- an escalating storm that ravages healthy...

By Kubiak, Karina Nowak, Wieslaw ABSTRACT Nitrile hydratase (NHase) is an enzyme used in the industrial biotechnological production of acrylamide. The active site, which contains nonheme iron or noncorrin cobalt, is buried in the protein core at the interface of two domains, alpha and beta. Hydrogen bonds between betaArg-56 and alphaCys-114 sulfenic acid (alphaCEA114) are important to maintain the enzymatic activity. The enzyme may be inactivated by endogenous nitric oxide (NO) and...

By Rajen M. YOUR genes are you. Your destiny is coded in them. So is your health and longevity. Can you change the genetic code and hence change your life? It is the nature versus nurture debate that has been going on all our lives. Still, we have long suspected that food affects your genes. We have also seen the effects of bad food. It can cause the wrong genes to get turned on. Hence, avoid chemicals and overly cooked and grilled meats. But good food like vegetables and fruits can...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
