To their surprise, the researchers found some 12,500 genes – the human being only about twice as many. This means that Dictyostelium could not only help to explain a number of issues related to the Cell Biology and evolution, but can also be used human genes human genes whose function remains unclear or the mutation results in diseases. The Dictyostelium genome was also found that the rich in protein bases of human diseases, in reality they are found to be more common than in any other sequenced genome of the. Understanding how the social amoeba could tolerate in a position this type of protein pave the way for new therapeutic approaches.
The DFG Executive Committee has the genome sequencing initiative launched in 1997 by genome research in Germany, the increase underdeveloped underdeveloped at the time. The Dictyostelium genome sequencing project was funded by the DFG since 1998. The DFG contributed a total of? 4 million in the project. The sequencing and analysis in Houston, Paris and Hinxton was carried out supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health in the U.S., the European Union and the UK Medical Research Council. DFG was financing financing decisions of these agencies. (more…)
Protect Them Bones, Them Bones, Them Young Bones – New report says education is the key to the reduction of sports injuries in young athletesA new study in the June 2007 Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons shows early detection and preventive therapies could dramatically reduce the number of sports injuries to young athletes in America. Could fall in the number of violations, if all young athletes were required to a medical and sports participation have history and physical examination. Coaches and physiotherapists should also be educated on musculoskeletal injuries and the mechanisms them them.
For simple injuries Treatment includes rest, muscles and tendons, exercises to play with the gradual addition of functional exercises and return. More comprehensive treatments such as arthroscopic and open surgery are often necessary. For more complex injuries such as sprains, fractures, and certain types of muscles and tendons, fractures.

The ‘. Huge myth about needle exchange is it and subsidize promotes illegal drug use, ‘the editorial says. But ‘drug use is already taking place, ‘and studies on needle – exchange programs in the United States ‘to demonstrate that they will not continue in an increase in illegal drug use, ‘the editorial. ‘ ‘perspective of public health and safety, ‘communities ‘, you can choose of whether[ injection] drug users is dirty needles they already use – and thus spreading deadly communicable diseases such as HIV and hepatitis C – or have access to clean needles ‘, the editorial says.

The results also revealed a three – rung ladder of consumption, with people who do not find the, food, strengthen, regardless of genotype, on the lowest rung. On the middle rack are people high in food reinforcement without the A1 allele. Top of the ladder are people high in food reinforcement with the allele, a potent combination that risk for obesity. Result in a higher risk for obesity.
The reinforcing value of food, which may be influenced by dopamine genotypes, a significantly stronger predictor of consumption appeared to be as self-reported liking of the favorite food. What’s more, to be obese participants clearly found food intensified as non-obese participants. The authors conclude that ‘food. Powerful amplifier, the emphasis, as may be drug ‘. (more…)
