- 3087 days ago -
Amputees could regenerate limbs and organs thanks to scientists who have come close to discovering how salamanders grow back lost legs and damaged organs.Axolotl salamanders are now going under the knife - while anaesthetised ...............
Biofuel From Inedible Plant Material Easier to Produce Following Enzyme Discovery
Science & Tech  (tags: Biofuel, Inedible Plant Material, Enzyme, Discovery, research )

- 3164 days ago -
Researchers funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) have discovered key plant enzymes that normally make the energy stored in wood, straw, and other non-edible parts of plants difficult to extract.

Absence of a an enzyme is what makes patients with a variant form of xeroderma pigmentosum (XPV)- an inherited genetic disorder characterized by extreme sensitivity to the sun-more susceptible to skin cancersthan the general population, found a study.
A New Insight Into the Genetics of Brain Tumour Formation
Science & Tech  (tags: research, science, technology, study, apoptosis, cancer, enzyme, neural, neuroblastoma, protein, suppressor, tumour )

- 4080 days ago -
Dr William Kaelin (Dana Farber Cancer Institute)& colleagues identify that the protein KIF1B(beta) mediates EglN3-induced neuronal apoptosis, & thus provides a protective effect against the development of neural crest-derived tumors.
'Painkiller' Gene Turned Off in Mice
Science & Tech  (tags: mice, gene, pain, enzyme, c-Kit, painkiller )

- 4177 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.
Enzymes Key To Brainpower Identified
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, brain, enzyme, phosphorylation, synapses, science )

- 4202 days ago -
Researchers identified the enzymes that work behind the scenes on PSD-95, adding a phosphate group to a specific amino acid in the PSD-95 protein. This process, called phosphorylation, is critical for PSD-95 to do its job in supporting synapses.
