As the old saying has it, to find your perfect prince - or princess - you have to kiss a lot of frogs, and most of us have kissed more than one.
Gene Discovered That Contributes to Diabetes
Science & Tech  (tags: Diabetes, research, discovery, gene, Type2, hormone insulin, identification, genetic variations, Insulin Receptor Substrate 1 )

- 3544 days ago -
A team of international researchers have identified a gene in people with type 2 diabetes that affects how the body's muscle cells respond to the hormone insulin. This discovery could lead to a better understanding of how type 2 diabetes develops. ...
Brain Researcher Shedding Light on Learning, Memory
Science & Tech  (tags: scientist, neurobiology, studies, brain, disease, gene, hippocampus, memory, neuronal, neurone, alzheimer )

- 4072 days ago -
'You form a basis to not only understand how biology works,but also how therapeutic strategies should be developed.It's a very systematic,large-scale effort to understand the brain.'One goal is understanding biology gone wrong,as it does in Alzheimer's.'
Scientists Will Stop Hair Aging
Science & Tech  (tags: research, hair, gene, health, scientists )

- 4118 days ago -
Good news for women suffering from hair fall.
Moss Genes Will Help to Create Superplants
Science & Tech  (tags: moss, gene, sequencing, genes, heat, cold, dry, science )

- 4178 days ago -
The moss, Physcomitrella patens, similar to primitive plants that grew 450 million years ago, can withstand extreme temperatures and dry conditions. The sequencing project will allow scientists to identify genes that control these beneficial traits.
'Painkiller' Gene Turned Off in Mice
Science & Tech  (tags: mice, gene, pain, enzyme, c-Kit, painkiller )

- 4178 days ago -
Chilli peppers activate an enzyme called c-Kit. Getting rid of c-Kit increases pain tolerance in mice, while stimulating it lowers the level at which heat becomes painful. This could lead to the development of painkillers that work by blocking the enzyme.
Scientists Find Gene That Converts Carbs to Fat
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, gene, SCD-1, carbohydrates, fat, conversion, liver, science )

- 4185 days ago -
Switching off one key gene in the liver can virtually halt the conversion of carbohydrates into body fat. While the SCD-1 gene exists in every cell in the body, its specific actions in the liver are essential for the production of body fat from high carb.
Scientists Find Statin Side Effect Gene
Science & Tech  (tags: statins, gene, drug, adverse effects, muscle, humans )

- 4187 days ago -
Scientists have discovered a gene toxic to muscles is activated by a class of drugs called statins, prescribed to lower cholesterol. Muscle pain and weakness are the most common side effects of statins, and a breakdown of skeletal muscle is a side effect.
