Public Release: 10-Apr-2014
Researchers determine how mechanical forces affect T-cell recognition and signaling
Researchers have developed a new understanding of the T-cell recognition process by describing how T-cell receptors use mechanical contact -- the forces involved in their binding to the antigens -- to make decisions about whether or not the cells they encounter are threats.

Lactate metabolism target halts growth in lung cancer model
A team led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has found that an enzyme responsible for the final step of glucose metabolism not only halts tumor growth in non-small-cell lung cancer, but actually leads to regression of established tumors.

Getting to the root of Parkinson's disease
Working with human neurons and fruit flies, researchers at Johns Hopkins have identified and then shut down a biological process that appears to trigger a particular form of Parkinson's disease present in a large number of patients. A report on the study, in the April 10 issue of the journal Cell, could lead to new treatments for this disorder.

Wiring for smell sets up early, then persists
A new study in Science reveals that the fundamental wiring of the olfactory system in mice sets up shortly after birth and then remains stable but adaptable. The research highlights how important early development can be throughout life and provides insights that may be important in devising regenerative medical therapies in the nervous system.

TGen identifies growth factor receptors that may prompt metastatic spread of lung cancer
Two cell surface receptors might be responsible for the most common form of lung cancer spreading to other parts of the body, according to a study by the Translational Genomics Research Institute. The hepatocyte growth factor receptor and fibroblast growth factor-inducible 14 are proteins associated with the potential spread of non-small cell lung cancer, according to the TGen study published online April 8 by the scientific journal Clinical & Experimental Metastasis.

UNC researchers show how cancer cells may respond to mechanical force
Two UNC-Chapel Hill studies, published in Nature Cell Biology and the Journal of Immunology, identify the processes and cellular pathways that allow cells to move, stiffen, and react to physical stresses. This knowledge, researchers hope, could reveal the causes of cancer and help develop treatments, including therapies for a variety of diseases.

Spironolactone not reduce primary outcome, did reduce hospitalizations for heart failure
Findings from the Treatment of Preserved Cardiac Function Heart Failure with an Aldosterone Antagonist trial, have revealed that adding the medication known as spironolactone to existing therapy did not significantly reduce the composite time to either death from cardiovascular causes, surviving a cardiac arrest, or hospitalization to manage heart failure in patients with heart failure and a preserved ejection fraction.

BU researchers identify specific causes of brown fat cell 'whitening'
Boston University researchers have learned new information about the consequences of overeating high-calorie foods. Not only does this lead to an increase in white fat cell production, the type prominent in obesity, but it also leads to the dysfunction of brown fat cells, the unique type of fat that generates heat and burns energy.
