    Mice that have a genetic version of mitochondrial disease can easily be mistaken for much older animals by the time they are nine months old: they have thinning grey hair, osteoporosis, poor hearing, infertility, heart problems and have lost weight. Dietary fat, coupled with a natural hormone, can relieve symptoms in these mice, researchers have found.

  • Similarities between embryos, breast tumors identified

    30 Jun 2015 | 9:24 am
    It may seem incredulous, but breast tumors may have something in common with embryos, at least in mice, say researchers. Tumors that resemble six-day-old mouse embryos are more prone to metastasize than those that look like tissues from adult mice, researchers discovered. Specifically, they noticed that the same genes that are turned on in developing mice are also present in metastatic tumors.
  • Research reveals new insights into a key antibiotic target in the fight against TB

    30 Jun 2015 | 9:17 am
    A key process in the bacterium that causes tuberculosis has been unraveled by researchers, potentially paving the way for new antibiotics to fight the disease. TB is one of the world's top infectious killers, causing 1.5 million deaths every year. The TB bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) is estimated to be present in up to a third of the world's population, although active TB only develops in around one in 10 cases.
  • How small genetic change in Yersinia pestis changed human history

    30 Jun 2015 | 9:12 am
    While studying Yersinia pestis, the bacteria responsible for epidemics of plague such as the Black Death, scientists found a single small genetic change that fundamentally influenced the evolution of the deadly pathogen, and thus the course of human history. They demonstrated how the acquisition of a single gene caused the shift of Y. pestis from causing a primarily gastrointestinal infection to a more serious and often fatal respiratory disease and how later modifications lead to infections associated with the bubonic plague.

  • Did the US Supreme Court just decide that subjective desires and feelings override the facts of human anatomy?

    26 Jun 2015 | 2:32 pm
    Today the US Supreme Court suddenly changed the definition of the word “marriage” that has stood for thousands of years of human history. So what definition of marriage are we left with? Here’s a go at the Court’s new definition of marriage in the USA: –“Marriage is a government recognized union of any two people qualifying them for special government and employee benefits.” The redefinition of marriage will make genealogical charts in the distant future much more complicated.

  • Heat acclimation improves heat exercise tolerance and heat dissipation in individuals with extensive skin grafts

    Schlader, Z. J., Ganio, M. S., Pearson, J., Lucas, R. A. I., Gagnon, D., Rivas, E., Kowalske, K. J., Crandall, C. G.
    1 Jul 2015 | 9:30 am
    Burn survivors with extensive skin grafts have impaired heat dissipation and thus heat tolerance. This study tested the hypothesis that heat acclimation (HA) improves these factors in this population. Thirty-four burn survivors were stratified into highly [>40% body surface area (BSA) grafted, n = 15] and moderately (17-40% BSA grafted, n = 19) grafted groups. Nine healthy nonburned subjects served as controls. Subjects underwent 7 days of HA involving 90 min of exercise at ~50% peak oxygen uptake in 40°C, 30% relative humidity. On days 1 and 7, subjects exercised in the heat at a…
  • Chronic hindlimb suspension unloading markedly decreases turnover rates of skeletal and cardiac muscle proteins and adipose tissue triglycerides

    Bederman, I. R., Lai, N., Shuster, J., Henderson, L., Ewart, S., Cabrera, M. E.
    1 Jul 2015 | 9:30 am
    We previously showed that a single bolus of "doubly-labeled" water (2H218O) can be used to simultaneously determine energy expenditure and turnover rates (synthesis and degradation) of tissue-specific lipids and proteins by modeling labeling patterns of protein-bound alanine and triglyceride-bound glycerol (Bederman IR, Dufner DA, Alexander JC, Previs SF. Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 290: E1048–E1056, 2006). Using this novel method, we quantified changes in the whole body and tissue-specific energy balance in a rat model of simulated "microgravity" induced by hindlimb suspension…
  • Lungs at high-altitude: genomic insights into hypoxic responses

    Mishra, A., Mohammad, G., Norboo, T., Newman, J. H., Pasha, M. A. Q.
    1 Jul 2015 | 9:30 am
    Hypobaric hypoxia at high altitude (HA) results in reduced blood arterial oxygen saturation, perfusion of organs with hypoxemic blood, and direct hypoxia of lung tissues. The pulmonary complications in the cells of the pulmonary arterioles due to hypobaric hypoxia are the basis of the pathophysiological mechanisms of high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE). Some populations that have dwelled at HA for thousands of years have evolutionarily adapted to this environmental stress; unadapted populations may react with excessive physiological responses that impair health. Individual variations in…
  • Diminished satellite cells and elevated adipogenic gene expression in muscle as caused by ovariectomy are averted by low-magnitude mechanical signals

    Frechette, D. M., Krishnamoorthy, D., Adler, B. J., Chan, M. E., Rubin, C. T.
    1 Jul 2015 | 9:30 am
    Age-related degeneration of the musculoskeletal system, accelerated by menopause, is further complicated by increased systemic and muscular adiposity. The purpose of this study was to identify at the molecular, cellular, and tissue levels the impact of ovariectomy on adiposity and satellite cell populations in mice and whether mechanical signals could influence any outcomes. Eight-week-old C57BL/6 mice were ovariectomized, with one half subjected to low-intensity vibration (LIV; 0.3 g/90 Hz, 15 min/day, 5 day/wk; n = 10) for 6 wk and the others sham vibrated (OVX; n = 10). Data are compared…
  • Heat shock protein 70 overexpression does not attenuate atrophy in botulinum neurotoxin type A-treated skeletal muscle

    Houston, F. E., Hain, B. A., Adams, T. J., Houston, K. L., O'Keeffe, R., Dodd, S. L.
    1 Jul 2015 | 9:30 am
    Botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT/A) is used clinically to induce therapeutic chemical denervation of spastically contracted skeletal muscles. However, BoNT/A administration can also cause atrophy. We sought to determine whether a major proteolytic pathway contributing to atrophy in multiple models of muscle wasting, the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS), is involved in BoNT/A-induced atrophy. Three and ten days following BoNT/A injection of rat hindlimb, soleus muscle fiber cross-sectional area was reduced 25 and 65%, respectively. The transcriptional activity of NF-B and Foxo was…

  • The riddle of Celiac disease solved?

    30 Jun 2015 | 5:04 am
    The cause of celiac disease has been found, researchers claim. Experts estimate that 1% of people have celiac disease. This is a partly hereditary disease that may place considerable strain on patients and their families. The immune system of patients with celiac disease reacts to gluten proteins from cereal grains, causing inflammation of the mucous membrane of the small intestine. This reaction to gluten causes the immune system of celiac patients to attack their own body.
