  • A virus infection and the impact on hippocampal neuron morphology and function, a new paper says published by the group of Prof. Martin Korte, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, in Braunschweig, Germany. The Acute influenza infection has been reported to be associated with neurological symptoms. However, the long-term consequences for the CNS of an infection […]

    Slow Thinking: Long-term Neuroinflammation Induced by Influenza

    A virus infection and the impact on hippocampal neuron morphology and function, a new paper says published by the group of Prof. Martin Korte, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, in Braunschweig, Germany. The Acute influenza infection has been reported to be associated with neurological symptoms. However, the long-term consequences for the CNS of an infection with neurotropic but also with non-neurotropic influenza A virus (IAV) variants remain elusive. We can show that spine loss in the...

  • A primitive role for ATF6 The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) mediates and monitors the folding, packaging, and transport of proteins in cells. The unfolded protein response (UPR) preserves ER homeostasis in the adult organism; however, inactivating mutations in the UPR-associated transcription factor ATF6 cause congenital vision defects, suggesting an embryonic role as well. Kroeger et al. […]

    The Unfolded Protein Response Regulator ATF6 promotes Mesodermal Differentiation

    A primitive role for ATF6 The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) mediates and monitors the folding, packaging, and transport of proteins in cells. The unfolded protein response (UPR) preserves ER homeostasis in the adult organism; however, inactivating mutations in the UPR-associated transcription factor ATF6 cause congenital vision defects, suggesting an embryonic role as well. Kroeger et al. found that ATF6 was critical to the differentiation of stem cells to the mesodermal lineage, at least in part,...

  • By identifying two cytokines, key factors in the recruitment of blood cells essential to the formation of new blood vessels, and above all by deciphering how these factors interact simultaneously with blood vessels, researchers at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) have highlighted an additional method of controlling tumour progression. The results suggest that the combined […]

    Extravasation Cascade Of Proangiogenic Monocytes To Tumours Detailed

    By identifying two cytokines, key factors in the recruitment of blood cells essential to the formation of new blood vessels, and above all by deciphering how these factors interact simultaneously with blood vessels, researchers at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) have highlighted an additional method of controlling tumour progression. The results suggest that the combined use of existing drugs or under development could significantly increase their efficacy. For a tumour to grow, it must develop...

    McDonald’s Fries Could Cure Baldness According To New Study

    Scientists in Japan say they managed to regrow hair on mice using a ground breaking stem cell technique. A cure for baldness could be on the horizon ... thanks to a chemical used in McDonald's fries. Scientists have regrown hair in mice using a "simple" technique - using human stem cells .This generated fresh follicles capable of sprouting luxurious new locks. Within days the lab rodents had furry backs and scalps. Read more here.

  • Eating too much salt can trigger an adaptive immune response in the gut that leads to reduced resting blood flow in the brain and the development of dementia, at least in mice, according to researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine.

    Eating too much salt can trigger dementia

    Eating too much salt can trigger an adaptive immune response in the gut that leads to reduced resting blood flow in the brain and the development of dementia, at least in mice, according to researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine. Constantino ladecola, Ph.D., and colleagues suggest that their studies are the first to demonstrate how a high-salt diet (HSD) can impact resting cerebral perfusion, neurovascular regulation, and cognitive function by mechanisms that are independent of any effects on blood...

    What does hair loss have to teach us about cancer metastasis?

    Understanding how cancer cells are able to metastasize -- migrate from the primary tumor to distant sites in the body -- and developing therapies to inhibit this process are the focus of many laboratories around the country. Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) have identified one mechanism that regulates signaling events leading to cell migration and metastasis. In the October 24, 2017 issue of Science Signaling, they showed that primary cilia act as a focal point to transmit...
