A Closer Look at the Nerves That Slim Down Fat Cells
When the human body needs extra energy, the brain tells fat cells to release their stores. Now, for the first time, researchers have visualized the nerves that carry those messages from brain to fat tissue. The activation of these nerves in mice, they found, helps the rodents lose weight—an observation that could lead to newRead more

Liquid Crystals Show Potential for Detection of Neurodegenerative disease
    Liquid crystals are familiar to most of us as the somewhat humdrum stuff used to make computer displays and TVs. Even for scientists, it has not been easy to find other uses. Now, scientists at the University of Chicago's Institute for Molecular Engineering are putting liquid crystals to work as detectors for the protein fibersRead more

Arming the Immune System to Against Cancer
    Researchers at Cancer Research UK say they have shown that a class of experimental drug treatments already in clinical trials could also help the body's immune system to fight cancer. They published their study ("Nuclear FAK Controls Chemokine Transcription, Tregs, and Evasion of Anti-tumor Immunity”) in Cell.     Scientists at the University of Edinburgh revealed thatRead more

New Test Design Could Bring At Home Molecular Diagnostics Be Reality
    Does being able to test for allergies, STDs, or even cancer in minutes from the comfort and privacy of your home sound like science fiction? Well, a newly designed test from researchers at the University of Montreal could make it a reality before the next Star Trek movie comes to theaters.     The Canadian scientists haveRead more

Protein Based Sensors Expand Synthetic Biology Repertoire
    Engineering proteins to detect specific DNA, RNA, or peptide sequences may not be a new idea, but a new approach taken by synthetic biology engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is as interesting as it is elegant.       The MIT researchers developed a flexible system of proteins that sense particular sequences of DNA,Read more

Two Genes Were Found Could Offer Gateway to Improve Therapies of Schizophrenia
    The researchers from Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore (Duke-NUS) say it has linked the abnormal behavior of two genes (BDNF and DTNBP1) to the underlying cause of schizophrenia. These findings ("Regulation of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Exocytosis and Gamma-Aminobutyric Acidergic Interneuron Synapse by the Schizophrenia Susceptibility Gene Dysbindin-1”), published in Biological Psychiatry, have provided a newRead more

The DNA of Early Circulating Lung Cancer Was Found
    Working with tissue, blood, and DNA from six people with precancerous and cancerous lung lesions, scientists from Johns Hopkins say they have identified what they believe are among the very earliest premalignant genetic changes that mark the potential onset of the most common and deadliest form of disease.     In a study ("Targeted sequencing reveals clonalRead more

Chinese scientists row over long-sought protein that senses magnetism
A dispute has broken out at two of China's most prestigious universities over a potentially groundbreaking discovery: the identification of a protein that may allow organisms to sense magnetic fields. On 14 September, Zhang Sheng-jia, a neuroscientist at Tsinghua University in Beijing, and his colleagues published a paper1 in Science Bulletin claiming to use magneticRead more

New Technique to Better Study the Interface Where Two Cells Touch
    Since the early part of the 20th century, scientists have been trying to better understand the intricacies surrounding neuronal development. In particular, the process by which glial cells—specifically, Schwann cells—creates their fatty insulating layer that encircles the axons of peripheral neurons.  Interactions between brain cells hold the key to healthy brain function and cognition, butRead more
