Elastin is a crucial building block in our bodies -- its flexibility allows skin to stretch and twist, blood vessels to expand and relax with every heartbeat, and lungs to swell and contract with each breath. But exactly how this protein-based tissue achieves this flexibility remained an unsolved…

PAD4 has been observed in cancers but its role was unclear. An Oxford University team have found that PAD4 citrullinates protein E2F-1, which causes it to form a protein complex with BRD4 that drives expression of inflammatory genes.

First-ever interlaboratory study of four versions of a therapeutic protein drug -- all manufactured from living cells -- reports that an established analytical tool akin to magnetic resonance imaging reliably assessed the atomic structures of the biologically similar products, yielding the…

A new method for conducting in-depth research on malignant tumors in patients has been developed. This work has led to the discovery of new complexities underlying cancer biology and overturning a nearly century-old perception about cancer metabolism.

We associate refineries with crude oil and a dense tangle of technical fittings. They may, however, change in the future -- if crude oil is replaced by lignin, a product currently treated as industrial waste. The research route leading towards this goal is being paved by new photocatalysts,…

A new study indicates that mothers who frequently sleep, or bed-share, with their infants consistently breastfeed for longer than mothers who do not bed-share. Also, pregnant women who expressed a strong motivation to breastfeed were more likely to bed-share frequently once their baby was born. The…

Zika virus caught the world off guard, but it shouldn't have. The rapid spread of the mosquito-borne virus, and its possible connection to birth defects and neurological disorders, compelled the World Health Organization on Monday to declare an international public health emergency. But by that…

In a time-constrained situation, such as standing in line at a cafeteria or restaurant, it can be difficult for consumers to quickly calculate and use numerical nutrition information -- beyond the amount of calories -- provided for menu items. A new study has found that when consumers are shown a…

The ability to see the direction in which something is moving is vital for survival. Only in this way is it possible to avoid predators, capture prey or, as humans in a modern world, cross a road safely. However, the direction of motion is not explicitly represented at the level of the…

Here's a reason for men to eat their lima beans -- if research in male fruit flies holds up, it might help you live longer. A new research report shows that administering an oral dose of prunetin to male fruit flies extends lifespan, increases fitness levels, and improves their glucose balance.

Why people lose their locks in old age may be related to the aging of hair follicle stem cells, two new studies suggest. Though it is known that mammals that live for longer lifespans lose their hair, the mechanisms underlying this fate have been a mystery.

The battery life of implantable heart monitors must be improved to reduce the need for replacement and the risks this carries for patients, argue two senior doctors in a new article.

An investigation raises new concerns about the top-selling anti-clotting drug, rivaroxaban (Xarelto). The trial compared rivaroxaban with the older anti-clotting drug warfarin for preventing strokes in patients with irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation).

The process for fixing mistakes in peer-reviewed research articles is flawed, a new article suggests. It points out that journals are slow to respond and even slower to take action when questions regarding the accuracy of a published research paper are raised.

A new study helps explain how fruit flies get their keen sense of smell. Researchers have identified a set of genetic control switches that interact early in a fly's development to generate dozens of types of specialized nerve cells for smell. The findings could reveal how the nervous systems of…

When babies and toddlers play with a tablet or other noisy device, they often play alone, which can be detrimental to their development, according to an assistant professor and extension early child development specialist. Research has shown that children need meaningful interaction with adults to…
