Scientists Reverse Aging-Associated Skin Wrinkles and Hair Loss in a Mouse Model

University of Alabama at Birmingham

When a mutation for mitochondrial dysfunction is induced in a mouse model, the mouse develops wrinkled skin and extensive hair loss in a matter of weeks. This is reversed to normal appearance when mitochondrial function is restored by turning off the gene responsible for mitochondrial dysfunction.

Putting Bacteria to Work

Argonne National Laboratory

Bacteria are diverse and complex creatures that are demonstrating the ability to communicate organism-to-organism and even interact with the moods and perceptions of their hosts (human or otherwise). Scientists call this behavior “bacterial cognition,” a systems biology concept that treats these microscopic creatures as beings that can behave like information processing systems.

Enzyme Identified as Possible Novel Drug Target for Sickle Cell Disease, Thalassemia

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Medical researchers have identified a key signaling protein that regulates hemoglobin production in red blood cells, offering a possible target for a future innovative drug to treat sickle cell disease. Tests in human cells reveal that blocking the protein reduces the characteristic sickling that distorts the shape of red blood cells and gives the disease its name.
