  • Green tea, red wine could help treat genetic diseases

    Jerusalem: Compounds in green tea and in red wine may help block the formation of toxic molecules that cause severe developmental and mental disorders, and may help treat certain inborn congenital metabolic diseases, a study has found. Most people with inherited metabolic disorders are born with a defective gene that results in a critical enzyme deficiency.

  • The plant with the botanical name Miqualia dentate Bedd produces an anti-cancer alkaloid called Camptothecine

    How plants know whether it is day or night

    London: Certain proteins inform the plant cells, bacteria and fungi whether it is day or night or cloudy or sunny and researchers have now determined the inner workings of one of these proteins.

  • Two proteins controlling heart growth identified

    London : Researchers have identified two proteins that can control the growth of heart and help in designing new strategies to treat cardiac failure caused by excessive growth of the organ, reports PTI.

    Two proteins controlling growth of heart identified

    London: Researchers have identified two proteins that can control the growth of heart and help in designing new strategies to treat cardiac failure caused by excessive growth of the organ. The proteins – p38 gamma and p38 delta – that control heart growth have been identified by researchers led by Guadalupe Sabio from the National Centre for Cardiovascular Research in Spain.

  • Two key proteins that control heart growth identified

    London – Researchers have identified how two proteins control the growth of the heart and its adaptation to high blood pressure that can help design new strategies to treat heart failure caused by excessive growth of the heart.

  • World’s largest database for cancer drug discovery goes 3D

    London : Scientists have revolutionised the world’s largest database for cancer drug discovery by adding 3D structures of faulty proteins and maps of cancer’s communication networks, paving the way for more effective treatments, reports PTI.

    Protein target to prevent dengue transmission identified

    Washington: Researchers have identified a protein that could be targeted to prevent transmission of the dengue virus, an advance that could lead to the development of a vaccine against the deadly infection. There is currently no approved specific treatment or vaccine for dengue fever, and an estimated 2 billion people are at risk for being bitten by Aedes mosquitoes and infected with the dengue virus (DENV).

  • New protein to help fight stress

    London:  Scientists have discovered a protein that can help develop new strategies to treat the effects of stress on the body.

    How deadly brain disease spreads from gut

    London: Offering hope for early detection of prion disease, a difficult to detect deadly brain condition in humans and farm animals, researchers have found how the proteins that cause the disorder spread from our gut.

    Protein that drives kidney disease severity

    New York: Higher levels of a key protein may put patients at greater risk of contracting severe kidney disease, says a new study. The researchers found that excess of this protein causes kidney cells to self-destruct.  “We believe we have found a target for the development of drugs to prevent chronic kidney disease from becoming severe,” said corresponding author John Cijiang He, professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

    Researchers detect new role for proteins

    New York: A study has shown for the first time that the building blocks of proteins can be assembled without instructions from DNA or messenger RNA (mRNA).

  • Proteins crucial for healing of wounds

    Washington :  Researchers have recently found proteins that play a vital role in the wound healing process, reports ANI.

  • Protein complex that may help prevent cancers found

    Washington: Researchers have identified a group of proteins that are mutated in about one-fifth of all human cancers and may play a key role in preventing tumours.

  • Interrupting protein can help boost immunity: Study

    Los Angeles:  Interrupting for a short period a protein responsible for immune functions can help boost the body’s immunity against viral infections like HIV and hepatitis C, says a new study.
