Performance-Enhancing Bacteria Found in the Microbiomes of Elite Athletes

Joslin Diabetes Center

BOSTON – (June 24, 2019) -- New research has identified a type of bacteria found in the microbiomes of elite athletes that contributes to improved capacity for exercise. These bacteria, members of the genus Veillonella, are not found in the guts of sedentary people. By taking a closer look at the bacteria, the researchers from Joslin Diabetes Center determined Veillonella metabolizes lactic acid produced by exercise and converts it into propionate, a short chain fatty acid.

By Cannibalizing Nearby Stromal Stem Cells, Some Breast Cancer Cells Gain Invasion Advantage

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Researchers at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center and U-M College of Engineering have found that breast cancer cells that swallow up nearby stem cells take on some of their properties, enhancing their ability to invade other tissues throughout the body and seed secondary tumors, a process known as metastasis.

Finding Missing Network Links Could Help Develop New Drugs, Stop Disease, Ease Traffic

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

A new mathematical model of the structure of networks could help find new cancer drugs, speed up traffic flow and combat sexually transmitted disease. Although the three challenges seem diverse, they all could benefit from a theory that helps uncover information about a network by analyzing its structure. The study was published in the journal Chaos. Successful link prediction algorithms already exist for certain types of networks, but the researchers analyzed differently structured networks to come up with their alternative algorithm.

Which Climates Are Best for Passive Cooling Technologies?

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

A group of UCSD researchers set out to gain a better understanding of the thermal balance of power plants and surfaces, but they quickly realized that they would first need to determine what roles cloud cover and relative humidity play in the transparency of the atmosphere to radiation at temperatures common on Earth. In the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, the group presents detailed radiative cooling resource maps they created to help determine the best climates for large-scale deployment of passive cooling technologies.

Low Dose of Bacterial Toxin Could Be Protective for Men at Risk of Acute Kidney Injury

American Physiological Society (APS)

Researchers found a low dose of endotoxin prior to induction of acute kidney injury improved outcomes for male rats. Their study will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS)/American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Conference: Control of Renal Function in Health and Disease.
