Serotonin Regulates Neuronal Mitochondria Biogenesis

A role for the mitochondrial effects of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the facilitation of stress adaptation has been identified in new research. Mitochondria in neurons are the powerhouses that generate energy to execute cellular functions and regulate neuronal survival under conditions of stress. The collaborative research, conducted by Prof. Vidita Vaidya and Prof. Ullas Kolthur-Seetharam […]

A Multi-pronged Approach To Anticancer Drug Resistant Tumors

Chemists from The University of Texas at Austin and Korea University have demonstrated a new approach to blocking cancer-drug resistance that they believe could be applied to any type of cancer. this new combination of existing drugs shows promise that it could reduce the size of cancerous tumors much more effectively than current treatments. As […]

Cytokine Fgf21 A Potential Early Biomarker For Neurodegenerative Conditions

A factor that could support the early detection of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s has been identified by researchers at the University of Basel. This cytokine, Known as Fgf21, is induced by cellular stress reactions after disturbances of the mitochondria. The normal functioning of human cells is based on the coordinated interaction of […]
