Biology Articles » Biochemistry
A collection of articles in Biochemistry, the study of the structure and function of cellular components, such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and other biomolecules, and of their functions and transformations during life processes
Metabolic syndrome -- don't blame the belly fatA team of researchers has found that insulin resistance in skeletal muscle leads to alterations in energy storage that set the stage for the metabolic syndrome.
Immune Cells Kill Foes By Disrupting Mitochondria Two WaysWhen killer T cells of the immune system encounter virus-infected or cancer cells, they unload a lethal mix of toxic proteins that trigger the target cells to self-destruct.
Natural Chemical From Sea Sponges Induces Death In Cancer Cells Via Unusual PathwayA chemical called candidaspongiolide (CAN) inhibits protein synthesis but also kills cancer cells by triggering caspase 12-dependent programmed cell death
Supercomputer Explores Biochemical Landscape To Find Memory SwitchesSwitches are a part of daily life, from snoozing your alarm, turning on the coffee maker, firing up your car engine, and so on until we turn off the lights at night.
Identifying Abnormal Protein Levels In Diabetic RetinopathyResearchers are reporting an advance in bridging huge gaps in medical knowledge about the biochemical changes that occur inside the eyes of individuals with diabetic retinopathy
Study Shows Metabolic Strategy Of Stressed CellInvestigators have mapped out many of the dynamic genetic and biochemical changes that make up a cell's response to a shortage of a molecule called Coenzyme A
One protein, two channels: Scientists explain mechanism in aquaporinsUsing computer simulations and experimental results, researchers have identified a key component of the gating mechanism in aquaporins that controls both the passage of water and the conduction of ions.
Electron Transport SystemThe electron transport system occurs in the cristae of the mitochondria, where a series of cytochromes (cell pigments) and coenzymes exist.
Parathyroid hormone, kidney disease, evidence and guidelinesParathyroid hormone (PTH) is released from the parathyroid glands predominantly as an 84 amino-acid peptide (PTH (1--84)).
CSF bilirubin-spectrophotometry or direct measurement?It is of vital importance not tomiss the diagnosis of subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH).
Chemical Screening Center at UCSC will search for new drugsResearchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz, will shift their search for potential drugs into high gear on September 21, when a new Chemical Screening Center opens for business.
Tracing The Pathways Of Neurofibromatosis: Researchers Find Genetic Flaw Starts Biochemical Domino EffectMichael Stern's latest research into the formation of neurofibromatosis tumors reads something like a federal racketeering indictment
Cure For Congenital Inability To Smell An OdorNew discoveries about the biochemical basis of the majority of cases of the congenital inability to smell any odor
Technology Reveals 'Lock And Key' Proteins Behind DiseasesA new technology developed at the University of Toronto is revealing biochemical processes responsible for diseases such as cystic fibrosis and could one day pave the way for pharmaceutical applications.
Computer Memory May Leap With Solution To Chemical MysteryA Florida State University researcher has helped solve a scientific mystery that stumped chemists for nearly seven decades.
Evidence for Intelligent Design from BiochemistryFrom a speech delivered at Discovery Institute's God & Culture Conference
Scientists Catch "Molecular Snapshot" Of COX-2 In ActionResearchers have caught a "molecular snapshot" of the first step in an important biochemical reaction involved in pain, inflammation and even cancer
Darkness Unveils Vital Metabolic Fuel Switch Between Sugar And FatConstant darkness throws a molecular switch in mammals that shifts the body's fuel consumption from glucose to fat and induces a state of torpor in mice
New Compound Reduces Stroke DamageA group of German scientists has synthesized a new compound that dramatically decreases the damage to neurons in rats demonstrating stroke symptoms.
The universal nature of biochemistryPeople have long speculated about the possibility of life in settings other than Earth.
