Science & Tech  (tags: Teardrop, protein, has, jaws to, chew up, harmful, bacteria )

- 2431 days ago -
Washington, Jan 20 - Lysozymes, antiseptic proteins in our teardrops, have jaws that latch on and chomp through rows of cell walls of harmful bugs like someone hungrily devouring an ear of corn.
Chinese Scientists Have Developed a Way of Using Rice to Make Albumin, a Blood Protein
Science & Tech  (tags: Chinese, scientists, have, developed, a way, of, using, rice, to make, albumin, a blood, protein )

- 2514 days ago -
SCIENTISTS at a Chinese university have developed a method of using rice to make albumin, a protein found in human blood that is often used for treating burns, traumatic shock and liver disease.

Science & Tech  (tags: Cancer, cure, Brazillian researchers, discovery, liver, pancreas, tick, saliva, protein, eradicate, cancer cells, radical innovation, clincial testing, financial investment, medical journals )

- 3308 days ago -
SAO PAULO (AFP) - It may be one of nature's repulsive little blood-sucking parasites, but the humble tick could yield a future cure for cancers of the skin, liver and pancreas, Brazilian researchers have discovered. They have identified a protein ...
Ant Guts Could Pave the Way for Better Antibiotics
Science & Tech  (tags: concept, health, humans, research, science, study, technology, antibiotics, bacteria, cell, genes, genome, inhibitors, protein, entomology, medicine )

- 3831 days ago -
This work could allow researchers to create new antibiotics against gram-negative bacteria,like E. coli and salmonella,that would destroy these bacteria by disabling the mechanism that produces their protective coating.
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 )

- 3839 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.
'Policing Cells' Require ID to Tell Friend From Foe
Science & Tech  (tags: science, research, study, concept, discovery, antibodies, blood, cell, macrophage, molecular, protein, future tech )

- 3843 days ago -
New knowledge suggests ways science may be able to turn off rogue macrophages that are the root cause of the many inflammatory diseases ranging from atherosclerosis to arthritis & that provide the mechanism for tissue and organ rejection after transplant.
The Delicious Charbroiled Smell of Laboratory Meat
Science & Tech  (tags: meat, cultured, grown, laboratory, stem cells, alternative, protein, engineered, substitute )

- 3861 days ago -
AlterNet reports that Dutch scientists are successfully growing "cultured meat" in labs. The current price is several thousand dollars per pound--out of reach of all but the most wealthy of epicures. Their aim is to bring it down to several dollars per #.
Protein Maintains Cross Talk Between Cells That Control Hair Growth
Science & Tech  (tags: research, science, study, discovery, cell, dermal, follicle, genes, hair, molecular, papilla, protein, stem )

- 3871 days ago -
Hair follicles can't grow properly when a type of skin cell called dermal papilla lacks the receptor that binds BMP, a signaling molecule that, when present, instructs stem cells to trigger hair follicles into action and make hair.
Fungus Sheds Light on Development of Human Genders
Science & Tech  (tags: science, genes, fetus, chromosome, fungas, protein )

- 3905 days ago -
One of the oldest known types of fungus contains a protein similar to the one encoded by the human Y chromosome, called SRY. When SRY is turned on, a developing fetus develops male characteristics.
Cloned Cats That Glow?!
Science & Tech  (tags: cats, cloning, genetic change, fluorescent, protein, science )

- 3935 days ago -
Scientists say they have cloned cats whose genes have been altered so that they glow in the dark - taking advantage of a technological twist that could someday be used to make more dramatic genetic changes in all sorts of creatures.
Possible Markers for Mental Illness
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, mental illness, dopamine D2 receptor, DRD2, antipsychotic drugs, protein )

- 3942 days ago -
Researchers found the differences in the gene for a molecule called the dopamine D2 receptor (DRD2), a protein present on brain cells that are sensitive to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Most antipsychotic drugs work in part by blocking this protein.
Aggression Protein Found in Mice
Science & Tech  (tags: research, scientists, animals, mice, addression, protein )

- 3942 days ago -
Agression pheromones have been identified in mice that encourage fights between rival males. Scientists from Scripps Research Institute in California found that mice excrete at least two chemicals in their urine which make them brawl. Nerves in th
