New details on how a viral protein puts the brakes on virus replication
An interdisciplinary team of researchers at Colorado State University has used computational chemistry, biochemistry and virology to uncover new information on how viruses such as West Nile, dengue and Zika replicate. Based on their research, the team said these viruses appear to cripple their own genome replication machinery.
High-protein diets boost artery-clogging plaque, mouse study shows
High-protein diets may help people lose weight and build muscle, but a new study in mice suggested they have a down side: They lead to more plaque in the arteries.
Scientists design protein blockers to fight obesity and heart disease
Almost four in 10 adult Americans are obese, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. What's more alarming is that in the past two decades alone, in states such as Texas, the share of obesity among residents has tripled. If left unchecked, obesity can even lead to more serious problems including high blood pressure and deadly strokes.
'Birth control’ insecticide could stop mosquitoes being able to hatch
A form of ‘birth control’ for mosquitoes could be used to tackle populations of the creatures in areas where insect-borne diseases are rife.
Elderly people should try weightlifting and protein powders to fight frailty
For most pensioners, retirement is the time to take the weight off one's shoulders.
Low-protein high-carbohydrate diet best for longevity, healthy brain aging
A low-protein high-carbohydrate diet like those practiced in parts of the Mediterranean and Japan may be the best for longevity and healthy brain ageing, according to a study on mice conducted by the University of Sydney released on Wednesday.
Scientists create first ever molecule-binding protein from scratch
Researchers have, for the first time successfully created a protein from scratch capable of binding to a small target molecule. Scientists from the University of Washington School of Medicine designed a cylindrical protein called a beta barrel, which has a cavity to bind the target.
Study of protein 'trafficker' provides insight into autism and other brain disorders
In the brain, as in business, connections are everything. To maintain cellular associates, the outer surface of a neuron, its membrane, must express particular proteins —proverbial hands that reach out and greet nearby cells.
Protein's on-off switch dictates flowering in plants
Scientists have discovered a new mechanism for cellular decision making. The new mechanism, an on-and-off switch in a single protein, controls whether or not a plant puts out flowers.
Birds get their internal compass from this newly ID’d eye protein
Birds can sense Earth’s magnetic field, and this uncanny ability may help them fly home from unfamiliar places or navigate migrations that span tens of thousands of kilometers.
Study finds modified protein unique to cancerous cells
Researchers have discovered a modified protein that reflects a difference between cancer and non-cancer cells, which could lead to new ways to deal with the disease.
Scientists identify protein that may improve survival during the flu
GM-CSF, a protein that modifies the immune response to the flu, may also help reduce lung inflammation and improve survival during influenza.
What are memories made of? New study sheds light on key protein
Ask a nonscientist what memories are made of and you'll likely conjure images of childhood birthday parties or wedding days. Charles Hoeffer thinks about proteins.
Surprise: A virus-like protein is important for cognition, memory
A protein involved in cognition and storing long-term memories looks and acts like a protein from viruses.
Low protein diet can add decades to your lifespan
Living longer could be a simple as eating a diet low in protein, new research has suggested.
