Low Copper Levels Linked to Fatter Fat Cells

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In studies of mouse cells, Johns Hopkins researchers have found that low levels of cellular copper appear to make fat cells fatter by altering how cells process their main metabolic fuels, such as fat and sugar.

Evolutionary ‘Arms Race’ – How Dolphins and Whales Fight Disease Threats

Florida Atlantic University

A groundbreaking study reveals how dolphins, whales and other cetaceans compete for survival in an evolutionary “arms race” with changing pathogenic threats like mercury and brevotoxin (e.g. Red Tide). Researchers show that cetaceans use several strategies for success in this race. They have developed tools to help wildlife managers and health professionals assess disease risk from the perspective of how individual animals are engineered to recognize the molecules of microorganisms in the environment and launch an immune response.

Larger cities have smaller water footprint than less populated counterparts

Penn State College of Engineering

Crops being irrigated with an overhead irrigation system.10/03/2018By Jennifer MatthewsUNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Global sustainability is important now more than ever due to increasing urban populations and the resulting stress it can have on natural resources. But increased populations in cities may lead to greater efficiency, as a team of Penn State researchers discovered when they analyzed the water footprint of 65 mid- to large-sized U.

Periodontal disease bacteria may kick-start Alzheimer’s

University of Illinois at Chicago

Long-term exposure to periodontal disease bacteria causes inflammation and degeneration of brain neurons in mice that is similar to the effects of Alzheimer’s disease in humans. Periodontal disease may be an initiator of Alzheimer’s.

Making Mice A Tiny Bit More Human to Study Preterm Birth

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Preterm birth remains a global epidemic linked to a lifetime of potential health complications. It also is difficult to study in living creatures—especially the uniquely precise biology of preterm birth in humans. Researchers report in PLoS Biology successfully inserting just enough human DNA into transgenic laboratory mice that it allowed the team to study a unique part of human pregnancy compared to other animals.
