Study shows direct link between circadian clock disruption and lipid changes in diabetics

Study shows direct link between circadian clock disruption and lipid changes in diabetics

The team from Geneva, Switzerland shows that disruption of lipid temporal profiles in type 2 diabetes stiffens the membrane of pancreatic endocrine cells, which could alter their function. Like all living things, human physiological processes are affected by circadian rhythms. Disruption of our internal clocks due to increasingly unbalanced lifestyles is directly related to the …

The study found that a toxic chemical used in hair products for black women promotes breast cancer

A new study has found that cosmetic products containing parabens adversely affect cancer cells in black women. Parabens are a group of chemicals that prevent the growth of mold and bacteria in cosmetic products. The study will be presented at the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in Atlanta on Saturday. loading Something is loading. …

The study explains how electric fish develop their electric organs

Weak electric fish provide excellent study systems for analysis. The fish has independently developed electrical organs from the muscle. However, how fish could develop their electrical organs remains unclear. The new study explains how small genetic changes have allowed electric fish to develop electrical organs. The findings could also help scientists identify genetic mutations behind …

Surprising results trigger the release of norepinephrine in the brain, the MIT study found

When your brain needs you to pay attention to something important, one way it can do this is to send a burst of norepinephrine, according to a new MIT study. This neuromodulator, produced by a structure deep in the brain called the locus coeruleus, can have extensive effects throughout the brain. In a mouse study, …

The study reveals a link between malnutrition and sarcopenia in patients with end-stage renal disease

End-stage renal disease (MHD) patients often suffer from malnutrition and sarcopenia, a form of musculoskeletal atrophy that increases mortality. The unraveling of the long-suspicious relationship between malnutrition and sarcopenia has confused scientists due to the lack of a diagnostic standard for nutritional health or condition. Researchers at Osaka’s Metropolitan University have taken a step to …

Your genetic gender determines the way your muscles “talk” to other tissues in your body: Study

A new study by the University of California at Irvine identifies sex-specific areas of muscle signaling to other tissues and that the organs and processes that affect muscles differ significantly between men and women. This new discovery provides insight into how muscle functions such as exercise promote healthy longevity, metabolism and cognition. A study entitled …
