Specific oxidation regulates cellular functions - EurekaAlert NEW!
For the first time it has been shown that ferrets share a mutation that was previously thought to be unique to humans, among the mammals. This helps to explain why the molecular characteristics of ferrets so uniquely mimic human susceptibility, severity and transmission of influenza A virus strains. These findings could pave the way to a completely novel approach to tackling human diseases from influenza through to cancer.
Tailor-made cancer treatments? New cell culture technique paves the wa... - EurekaAlert NEW!
For a long time, hydrogen peroxide has been considered as a dangerous metabolite that can damage cells through oxidation. This, however, is not its only role in the cell. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center have now discovered how it also transmits specific signals: Enzymes called peroxiredoxins catch the free hydrogen peroxide molecules and use them to specifically oxidize other proteins. Hydrogen peroxide thus regulates, for example, the activity of an inflammation-promoting transcription factor and hence controls important cellular functions.

Could trophoblasts be the immune cells of pregnancy? - EurekaAlert 1 hour ago
Being part of the mining area Herrerias, Andalusia, deep waters of Pit Lake Guadiana show extremely high concentration of dissolved carbon dioxide. In the case of a spontaneous ebullition, human beings close-by would be jeopardized. To demonstrate the danger and the possible solution, scientists of the Spanish Institute of Geology and Mining, the University of the Basque Country and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research constructed a pilot plant for degassing.
Trophoblasts, cells that form an outer layer around a fertilized egg and develop into the major part of the placenta, have now been shown to respond to inflammatory danger signals, researchers from Norwegian University of Science and Technology found in a recent study published in Journal of Reproductive Immunology, December 2014 issue.

U.S.-Cuba breakthrough is no slam dunk for Internet - PC World NEW!
A NASA rover has found the building blocks of life on Mars. They might be the product of past or present life on the red planet -- or they might not be.
The Obama administrationâ€™s historic move to restore ties between the U.S. and Cuba may eventually put more Cubans online, but the future of the Internet there is likely to depend more on domestic policies than on imported goods and services.As President Obama announced steps to lower barriers between the U.S. and Cuba after more than 50 years, he said the strict U.S. laws designed to isolate Cuba have contributed to the islandâ€™s isolation from the Internet. The policy changes he ordered on Wednesday included allowing companies to export communications gear and set up infrastructure for networks in Cuba.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
