Novel Alzheimer's Disease Amyloid Beta Polymorph Now Revealed!

Sensitivity-enhanced solid-state NMR spectroscopy can be used in the structural characterization of amyloid β – the pathogenic protein involved in Alzheimer's disease – as shown by scientists from Tokyo Tech. Their findings bring to light a novel polymorph of the protein and associated structural elements that can be targeted for […]

TRIM28 Inhibits Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres

Telomeres are caps of repeated DNA sequences at the ends of chromosomes. A little of the telomere length is lost with each cell division. A somatic cell with short telomeres ceases replication, and usually self-destructs. All cancers must thus continually lengthen telomeres in order to engage in unfettered replication and […]

Light can trigger key signaling pathway for embryonic development, cancer

Blue light is illuminating new understanding of a key signaling pathway in embryo development, tissue maintenance and cancer genesis. Researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign developed an approach using blue light to activate the Wnt (pronounced “wint”) signaling pathway in frog embryos. The pathway plays a wide variety of […]

Red blood cell alterations contribute to lupus

The autoimmune disease lupus may be triggered by a defective process in the development of red blood cells (RBCs), according to a study led by researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine. The discovery could lead to new methods for classifying and treating patients with this disease. The researchers, who published their […]

Complicating the Contribution of Persistent Infection to Neurodegeneration and Alzheimer's Disease Risk

Researchers have in recent years put forward contradictory evidence for and against a role for persistent infection, such as by herpesviruses, in neurodegeneration and the incidence of Alzheimer's disease. The Alzheimer's disease scientific community is in need of a good explanation as to why only some people with the known […]

VEGF Upregulation Slows Age-Related Capillary Density Loss, Extending Health and Life Span in Mice

The aging of the vasculature has detrimental effects on organs throughout the body. The most structurally apparent issue is that of atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty deposits that narrow and weaken blood vessels. This ultimately leads to heart failure, stroke, heart attack, and death. A close second is the stiffening […]
