Brain Protein Linked to Binge Drinking
Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered that a brain protein has a key role in controlling binge drinking in animal models. They found that deleting the gene for this protein in mice ramped up alcohol consumption and prevented the brain from signaling the rewarding properties of alcohol. "Alcohol hits a lot ofRead more

Create 3D multiple myeloma model to aid preclinical development efforts
Multiple myeloma is an incurable cancer of the bone marrow; most patients develop resistance against first line therapy Velcade (bortezomib) sooner or later, which is a problem because few alternative drugs are available. Part of the reason for this is that to date there have been no screening systems to allow scientists to study theRead more

Maple Syrup May Boost Antibiotics Effectiveness
Researchers at McGill University say a concentrated extract of maple syrup makes disease-causing bacteria more susceptible to antibiotics. The findings, which will be published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, suggest that combining maple syrup extract with common antibiotics could increase the microbes' susceptibility, leading to lower antibiotic usage. The scientists prepared a concentrated extract ofRead more

Plant Protein Discovery Opens Door to Better Understanding of Human Gene Silencing
Researchers at the Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) published a paper that they say reveals a key molecular mechanism in plants that has significant similarities to certain signaling mechanisms in humans, which are closely linked to early embryonic development and to diseases such as cancer. In plants as in animals and humans, intricate molecular networksRead more
