Scientists reveal that the answer is all in your head—more specifically, your arcuate nucleus
Findings could help predict which patients will suffer side effects and prevent complications in susceptible patients
The new treatment approach was directed against acute myeloid leukemia cells but may also have potential for attacking other types of cancers
The finding, made in mice, could lead to new strategies for warding off age-related diseases and extending lifespan
The findings, published online May 18 in the journal Cell, could lead to the first broadly effective ebolavirus therapies and vaccines
Advance could also work against other viruses
Breakthrough technology allows Einstein scientists to observe protein production at the root of diseases
Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and their international collaborators have developed a novel fluorescence microscopy technique that for the first time shows where and when proteins are produced. The technique allows researchers to directly observe individual messenger RNA molecules (mRNAs) as they are translated into proteins in living cells. The technique, carried out in living human cells and fruit flies, should help reveal how irregularities in protein synthesis contribute to developmental abnormalities and human disease processes including those involved in Alzheimer’s disease and other memory-related disorders. The research will be published the March 20 edition of Science.
