    Fondness of Typhoid Fever Toxin Towards The Sugar Expressing Cells

    Latest study published in nature microbiology illustrates fondness of typhoid toxin for sugar expressing cells Typhoid is an infection caused by bacteria called Salmonella typhi which grows in intestine and blood. This infectious bacteria has been around for centuries. Its molecular mechanism is still not known. They produce a toxin called typhoid toxin which is responsible for the symptoms of disease…

    Molecule That Can Help In Repairing Damaged Cells In Multiple Sclerosis

    Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease related to nerve cells in which brain and the spinal cord gets Demyelinated Multiple Sclerosis is an immune-mediated process in which Central Nervous System (CNS) tissue are damaged due to abnormal response in the immune system of a body. It’s an autoimmune disease.A new study suggests that there is a molecule which is produced by…

    DNA Bricks Advancing DNA Nanotech from Mega to GigaDalton Scale

    Researchers have developed ways by which DNA strands can self-assemble into material for creating a nanoscale structure DNA is the biomolecule which stores the genetic information and helps in transmitting them in biological systems. Almost every cell contains DNA. DNA Nanotechnology is the branch of science in which DNA is used as a building material for making an artificial nucleic…

    Signal Driving Type 1 Diabetes

    Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism caused due to a problem in the production of insulin. Insulin helps in regulation of blood glucose level by storing it in the form of glycogen and using it as an energy fuel when needed. Type I Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which T cell which forms the major part of immune…

    Antibiotics May Decrease The Ability of Immune Cells to Kill Bacteria

    Antibiotics are the powerful antimicrobial drug that kills or inhibit bacteria causing infection. Although antibiotics are designed to kill infection-causing bacteria, they also kill good bacteria sometimes while fighting off a pathogen. During a new study in the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, MIT and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, researchers found out that during antibiotic treatment…

    Correlation of Alzheimer Disease with Cellular Energy Dysfunction

    Researchers at Harvard University have found that fibroblast of Alzheimer patient have defective mitochondria metabolic potential Alzheimer disease is a neurodegenerative disease caused due to damage to neurons which causes loss of memory and cognitive decline. Approximately, 200,000 Americans under the age of 65 have early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer can be in two forms i.e. early onset which is…

    Scientists Create First Semi-Synthetic Organism

    The scientist at Scripps Research Institute has been designing bacteria having unnatural bases i.e. other than common bases of DNA G, C, A & T. These new unnatural bases are named as X and Y. The beginning of life on earth is started by just letters in its genetic code (just four letters). On this earth, every organism’s proteins are…

    Protein That Could Help Fight Antibiotic Resistance

    Investigators have found a protein called transthyretin or TTR which inhibits biofilm Bacterial growth can lead to many serious problems but when they are on medical devices, it is hazardous to patient health. Medical devices may include knee implants, artificial hip implants, and catheters. A catheter is a flexible tube used for removing fluid from the body cavity particularly from the…

    Approach of Targeting Cancer While Rescuing Healthy T-Cells

    Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer which develops due to uncontrolled growth of lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are one of the several types of white blood cells and form the major part of immune system. The work of lymphocyte is to fight infection-causing germs but due to some change, lymphocyte multiplies abnormally and give rise to cancerous state i.e. lymphoma The…

    Scientists Reveal How Cells ‘Take Out the Trash’

    A new structural study shows exactly how cells take out the trash. Using a high-resolution imaging technique called cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have revealed how cells degrade damaged or misfolded proteins in mitochondria—cellular compartments that serve as the “powerhouses” of the cell. Protein degradation is constantly occurring in cells, and is essential to all…
