Taking the “Ewww”… out of snail cream
June 17, 2014 – 11:07 pm | No Comment

Great news for all those women (and men) who have wanted to try the beautifying effects of snail slime but could never get past the “ick” factor. 20yrsyounger.com promises to get rid of the Ewww… while still letting women reap the anti-aging and rejuvenating benefits of snail slime cream. The process itself is called lyophilisation [...]

Molecule serves as a key in some protein interactions

 Molecule serves as a key in some protein interactions St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists discover that a post-production addition to most proteins can serve as a key to mediate protein interactions, which are at the foundation of life Memphis, Tennessee November 4, 2011 Research led by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists has identified [...]

Protein Creates Partition Between Bacteria and the Gut

Protein Creates Partition Between Bacteria and the Gut Scientists have identified a microbe-fighting protein that helps create a buffer zone between the inner walls of the intestines and the bacteria within. The finding may explain how helpful bacteria can survive in the digestive tract without triggering an immune attack. Researchers have long known that about [...]

Parallels between immunity and cancer reported …

Parallels between immunity and cancer reported Same proteins involved, but cancer takes hold when response gets out of control, CCNY biologists Report Tiny parasitoid wasps can play an important role in controlling the populations of other insect species by laying their eggs inside the larvae of these species.  A newly hatched wasp gradually eats the [...]

Research provides new leads in the case against drug-resistant biofilms

Research provides new leads in the case against drug-resistant biofilms Films of bacteria that form around foreign materials in the body can be very difficult to defeat with drugs, but research led by Brown University biologists has identified a couple proteins that play a key role in building these “biofilms.” This pair could prove to [...]

Size of protein aggregates, not abundance, drives spread of prion-based disease

Size of protein aggregates, not abundance, drives spread of prion-based disease In a study that challenges the conventional wisdom about infections caused by proteins called prions, Brown researchers report in Science that the size of protein structures, rather than their abundance, determines their transmission among cells. PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Mad Cow disease and [...]

Childhood adversity may lead to unhealthy stress response in adult life

Childhood adversity may lead to unhealthy stress response in adult life A study has detected a correlation between childhood adversity and exaggerated inflammatory response to stress among seemingly healthy people. It may shed light on risk for depression, other illnesses later in life. PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Seemingly healthy adults, if they were abused [...]

Brown-led research divines structure for class of proteins

Brown-led research divines structure for class of proteins A research team led by Brown University has determined the structure for three proteins in a class known as intrinsically disordered proteins. The findings, reported in Structure, are important because they show how these proteins fold with the regulator protein phosphatase-1, which must happen for biological instructions [...]
