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...

Crystal structure of a key initiation protein while bound is captured in one of two newly reported studies University of Oregon biochemists have determined how tiny synthetic molecules disrupt an important actin-related molecular machine in cells in one study and, in a second one, the crystal structure of that machine when bound to a natural inhibitor. The accomplishments -- done in the name of fundamental understanding, or basic science -- provide new windows on the complexities of...

Study describes overexpression of Ephrin B2 in cell lines and tumors Malignant mesothelioma is a rare asbestos-associated malignancy with limited therapeutic options. Despite advances in the treatment, the median survival remains 12 months from the time of diagnosis. Increased understanding of the molecular basis for the diverse signaling pathways involved in cancer progression should promote the discovery of novel biomarkers for early diagnosis and potentially lead to more effective...

Color Change Mechanism Squid And Octopi
2013-07-26 09:47:07

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) have discovered the mechanisms responsible for the dramatic color changes in underwater creatures such as the squid and the octopus. According to UCSB scientists, color in living organisms can be formed in one of two ways - pigmentation or anatomical structure. Structural colors are the result of the physical interaction between light and biological...

UC Davis stem cell study uncovers the brain-protective powers of astrocytes One of regenerative medicine's greatest goals is to develop new treatments for stroke. So far, stem cell research for the disease has focused on developing therapeutic neurons — the primary movers of electrical impulses in the brain — to repair tissue damaged when oxygen to the brain is limited by a blood clot or break in a vessel. New UC Davis research, however, shows that other...

For A Healthy Brain, Clear Out The Trash
2013-07-23 10:41:23

NIH/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke Recycling is not only good for the environment, it's good for the brain. A study using rat cells indicates that quickly clearing out defective proteins in the brain may prevent loss of brain cells. Results of a study in Nature Chemical Biology suggest that the speed at which damaged proteins are cleared from neurons may affect cell survival and may explain why some cells are targeted for death in neurodegenerative disorders....
