Independent effects of growth hormone releasing factor on growth hormone release and gene transcription
It is demonstrated here that GHRF stimulates GH gene transcription independently of GH release and, conversely, that other agents can stimulate GH release without affecting transcription of the GH gene.
Where have all the froggies gone?
Article de synthese sur le premier Congres Mondial d'Herpetologie concernant le declin de nombreuses especes d'amphibiens de par le monde.
Death by Dozens of Cuts
Work done in the past few years is beginning to show how the caspases are turned on, how they work, and what their cellular targets are--information that may help develop better therapies for diseases where this programmed cell death has gone awry.
Transcriptional regulation of growth hormone gene expression by growth hormone-releasing factor
It is reported here that pure human pancreatic GRF (hpGRF) stimulates transcription of the GH gene, as well as stimulating GH release, and polypeptide hormone regulation of GH biosynthesis has not been demonstrated.
Cell suicide: by ICE, not fire.
From Bench Top to Bedside
More than 2 decades of research on oncogenes and tumor suppressors may finally pay off in a new generation of more specific, less toxic, cancer drugs that researchers hope will kill cancer cells more effectively, with less harm to normal cells.
Studying the Well-Trained Mind
CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS-- At a conference last month called Investigating the Mind, held here at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, neuroscientists and Buddhist scholars discussed attention,
Stroke-Damaged Neurons May Commit Cellular Suicide
Some cells that might otherwise recover from the ischemia may be dying because the injury triggers programmed cell death, known as apoptosis, which suggests new approaches for limiting stroke damage and all the brain injuries that may occur in premature infants or those deprived of oxygen during birth.
