Researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), led by Dr. Lee Bulla, have demonstrated for the first time the selective cytotoxicity of Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis Cry4B toxin is mediated by BT-R3. The Cry toxins produced by Bacillus thuringiensis exert their insecticidal activity by binding with high-affinity to their cognate cadherin receptors located on the surface of epithelial cells that line the midgut of susceptible insects. In the case of Anopheles gambiae,...

New Campaign Helps Educate America on the High-Quality Protein in Each 8 Oz. Serving of Milk NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Almost two-thirds (57 percent) of Americans say they're trying to get more protein in their diet[1], but most people underestimate the importance of both getting protein at breakfast and the protein prowess of one of breakfast's most popular staples: milk. An 8-oz. glass of milk has 8 grams of high-quality protein, which is more protein than in an...

A team of neuroscientists has identified a modification to a protein in laboratory mice linked to conditions associated with Alzheimer's Disease. Their findings, which appear in the journal Nature Neuroscience, also point to a potential therapeutic intervention for alleviating memory-related disorders. The research centered on eukaryotic initiation factor 2 alpha (eIF2alpha) and two enzymes that modify it with a phosphate group; this type of modification is termed phosphorylation. The...

Stowers investigators show that rules governing expression of developmental genes in mouse embryonic stem cells are more nuanced than anticipated A decade ago, gene expression seemed so straightforward: genes were either switched on or off. Not both. Then in 2006, a blockbuster finding reported that developmentally regulated genes in mouse embryonic stem cells can have marks associated with both active and repressed genes, and that such genes, which were referred to as "bivalently marked...

Researchers at Warwick Medical School have identified the key role played by a team of proteins in the process of mitosis. Working out how to control them may give scientists a way to destroy cancerous cells. The study, published in The Journal of Cell Biology, highlights the role of a newly identified team of proteins, TACC3-ch-TOG-clathrin, in forming inter-microtubule bridges that stabilize the kinetochore fibers (K-fibers) used in mitosis. When a cell divides, it produces a mitotic...

By adding covalent bonds to proteins, researchers can design new drugs, imaging agents, or molecules that aid basic research Proteins are the workhorses of cells, adopting conformations that allow them to set off chemical reactions, send signals and transport materials. But when a scientist is designing a new drug, trying to visualize the processes inside cells, or probe how molecules interact with each other, they can't always find a protein that will do the job they want. Instead, they...

CULVER CITY, Calif., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The findings of a double blind study showed for the first time that plant-based rice protein has identical benefits to dairy-based whey protein. The study used Growing Naturals' Organic Rice Protein made with Axiom Food's Oryzatein®, with a controlled population of bodybuilders and measured how they built muscle and experienced rates of repair and soreness. The study was published by the Nutrition Journal (6/19/13) and...
