A new study reports reduced levels of Rheb result in memory loss in animal models of dementia.
Structural mapping of both SARS and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, reveals an almost identical site on both coronaviruses to which the CR3022 antibody binds. This suggests a functionally important and vulnerable site for this family of coronaviruses.
Study sheds new light on the role noncoded RNAs play at the synapse.
PPL2 neurons help modulate the strength of memories.
Researchers have revealed the 3d structure of the Flycatcher1 protein channel which enables the Venus flytrap to close in response to prey. The findings shed light on how other mechanosensitive ion channels may operate in other plants, bacteria, and the human body.
A new study reveals some experimental antibody treatments for neurodegenerative disorders increase neuroinflammation. The effect was seen in human microglia, not mouse microglia. This may explain why mouse studies have shown these treatments to be effective, but the effect has not been replicated in human studies.
Study reveals up to 45% of people infected with COVID-19 were asymptomatic. The findings suggest asymptomatic infections likely played a significant role in the early and ongoing spread of coronavirus.
Researchers have identified hundreds of proteins that are consistently transported throughout the healthy brain via small membrane-enclosed sacs. The findings reveal a new form of communication between brain cells.
Researchers have identified a hormone that appears to trigger fat burning in the gut.
Researchers have determined the near-atomic scale structure of the anxiety-associated GPR158 receptor. The findings enable an avenue to create potential therapeutics to block the receptor in order to treat depression, stress, and other mental health disorders.
