Ghrelin: a new therapeutic target for Parkinson's? - BMC Blogs Network (blog)


BMC Blogs Network (blog)
An article recently published in Molecular Brain explores Ghrelin deficits within Parkinson's disease. By using disease-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) containing the PARK2 gene mutations, the researchers reveal that a receptor for ...

Microscope enables researchers to control motion within living cells - Phys.Org


Phys.Org
Simple motion inside biological cells, such as the streaming of cytoplasm—the liquid cell interior—is widely believed to be essential for cells and the development of complex organisms. But due to the lack of suitable tools, this intracellular motion ...

Signaling Pathways: Angiogenesis
United States

Angiogenesis results in the formation of new blood vessels, and can be induced by tumor growth, tissue wound, and inflammation. Rapid tumor cell growth creates intracellular hypoxia. Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) is a transcription factor that responds to changing intracellular oxygen concentration. Under typical oxygen levels (normoxia), HIF is hydroxylated and acetylated, modifications that target the transcription factor for VHL mediated ubiq
