Bitter melon has been analyzed by Western scientists to contain substances that stimulate AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase).

Tamoxifen induces remyelination Gonzalez GA Hofer MP Syed YA Amaral AI Rundle J Rahman S Zhao C Kotter MR. Tamoxifen accelerates the repair of demyelinated lesions in the central nervous system. Sci Rep. 2016;6:31599. Enhancing central nervous system (CNS) myelin regeneration is recognized as an important strategy to ameliorate the devastating consequences of demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Previous findings have indicated that myelin proteins which accumulate following…

Researchers identify cellular regulator of glucose transport in the human body.

Researchers from UT Southwestern have gleaned a key cellular mechanism of how the body adjusts glucose levels, an important process that when abnormal can promote diabetes, cancer, and rare genetic diseases. The researchers determined that an enzyme called Protein Kinase C (PKC) can regulate whether more or less glucose should be transported into cells, serving as a kind of thermostat to ensure that proper levels are maintained.

Asymmetric responses of the woody poplar taproot axis to bending stress

Mechanical bending stress can result in cell wall strengthening and increased wood formation across root axes together with an attendant asymmetrical accumulation of phytohormones. De Zio et al. show how different mechanical force intensities act across the compressed concave and stretched convex sides of the woody bent poplar taproot. Model summarizing the main anatomical phytohormonal and proteomical changes observed in the convex and concave sides of three bent taproot sectors (ABS BS…

Sorafenib (Nexavar), is a drug approved for the treatment of primary kidney cancer (advanced renal cell carcinoma) and advanced primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma).Sorafenib (a bi-aryl urea) is a small molecular inhibitor of several Tyrosine protein kinases (VEGFR and PDGFR) and Raf kinases (more avidly C-Raf than B-Raf).
