Obesity Leads to Infertility Through Oxidative Stress in Mice

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

Researchers studying infertility in obese mice have identified a protein suppressed in the egg cell precursors of obese mice that controls antioxidant production and may regulate egg cell maturation.

Lowering pH Inside Cells May Put the Brakes on Cancer Growth

Moffitt Cancer Center

A new study focusing on the environment inside cancer cells may lead to new targeted treatment strategies. Moffitt Cancer Center researchers, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Maryland and the Institute for Research in Biomedicine Barcelona, suggest that lowering the pH inside cancer cells to make it more acidic can slow down the growth and spread of the disease, and possibly provide new options for treatment.

Missouri S&T Chemist Rolls the Dice to Better Identify Chiral Molecules in Drugs

Missouri University of Science and Technology

“High risk, high reward” is the kind of discovery Dr. Garry Grubbs seeks with a new experiment designed to rapidly identify the atomic structure of chiral molecules widely used in pharmaceutical drugs. The finding could significantly reduce the time and costs involved in pharmaceutical development and manufacturing.

Study: The Eyes May Have It, an Early Sign of Parkinson’s Disease

American Academy of Neurology (AAN)

The eyes may be a window to the brain for people with early Parkinson’s disease. People with the disease gradually lose brain cells that produce dopamine, a substance that helps control movement. Now a new study has found that the thinning of the retina, the lining of nerve cells in the back of the eye, is linked to the loss of such brain cells. The study is published in the August 15, 2018, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

NUS researchers uncover a bidirectional regulator and shed light on A-to-I RNA editing in cancer cells

National University of Singapore

An in-depth study on the regulation of adenosine-to-inosine (A-to-I) RNA editing by researchers from the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore at the National University of Singapore found that a protein, known as DHX9, acts as a bidirectional regulator of the molecular process which is linked to various types of cancer such as esophageal cancer.

Transgenic rice plants could help to neutralize HIV transmission

Iowa State University

An international research group, which included an ISU scientist, has proven that three proteins that can help prevent the spread of HIV can be expressed in transgenic rice plants. Using plants as a production platform could provide a cost-effective means of producing prophylactics, particularly in the developing world.

Brain Response Study Upends Thinking About Why Practice Speeds Up Motor Reaction Times

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Researchers in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Johns Hopkins Medicine report that a computerized study of 36 healthy adult volunteers asked to repeat the same movement over and over became significantly faster when asked to repeat that movement on demand—a result that occurred not because they anticipated the movement, but because of an as yet unknown mechanism that prepared their brains to replicate the same action.
