The most common type of breast cancer in older women "” estrogen and progesterone receptor (ER/PR) positive breast cancer "” has been linked to a protein that fends off aging-related cellular damage. A new study led by Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center researcher David Gius, M.D., Ph.D., now shows how a deficiency in this aging-associated protein may set the stage for these tumors to develop. The findings, published in Molecular Cell, provide information that could assist in the...

NIH study could improve care for chronic granulomatous disease Investigators at the National Institutes of Health have observed that the survival rate of people with a rare immunodeficiency disease called chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is greatly improved when even very low levels of microbe-killing molecules are present. Because production of these molecules, made by an enzyme called NADPH oxidase, can be predicted from genetic analysis, a patient's risk for severe CGD could be assessed...

Memory and learning improved in mice with Alzheimer's disease that were crossbred with animals that produced large amounts of a potent antioxidant enzyme made in the mitochondria said researchers from Baylor College of Medicine and New York University in a report that appeared in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "This is one of the first reports with so many improvements in cognition in these mice," said Dr. Robia Pautler, assistant professor in the departments of...

Research published in the journal Genetics suggests new ways to stop byproducts from the air we breathe from harming our muscles If you think the air outside is polluted, a new research report in the September 2009 issue of the journal Genetics (http://www.genetics.org) might make you to think twice about the air inside our bodies too. That's because researchers show how about 3 percent of the air we breathe gets converted into harmful superoxides, which ultimately harm our muscles....

A dietary ingredient derived from a melon rich in antioxidant superoxide dismutase enzymes has been shown to relieve stress. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, published in BioMed Central's open access Nutrition Journal, researchers found that the supplement decreased the signs and symptoms of perceived stress and fatigue in healthy volunteers. Marie-Anne Milesi from Seppic, France, worked with a team of researchers to evaluate its anti-stress effects in 70 volunteers....

A potent antioxidant enzyme made in the mitochondria reduces or prevents the memory and learning impairments of Alzheimer's disease in animals and could provide new direction to treating the disease, said researchers from Baylor College of Medicine and New York University in a new report.Superoxide dismutase (SOD-2), an enzyme made in the cell's mitochondria, also reduced the levels of superoxide(reactive oxygen) that is implicated in Alzheimer's disease, said Dr. Robia Pautler, assistant...

 Researchers at the University of Illinois report that a toxic molecule known to damage cells and cause disease may also play a pivotal role in bird migration. The molecule, superoxide, is proposed as a key player in the mysterious process that allows birds to "see" Earth's magnetic field.The discovery, reported this month in Biophysical Journal, occurred as a result of a "mistake" made by a collaborator, said principal investigator Klaus Schulten, who holds the Swanlund Chair in Physics...
