Age may play major role in cell's ability to respond to physical exercise

If you're an older adult, a 30-minute workout may not be as effective, even at the cellular level, as it was when you were younger. [More]
Buck researchers identify new, potential drug targets for sporadic PD

Buck researchers identify new, potential drug targets for sporadic PD

Research at the Buck Institute shows the same mechanisms that lead to neuronal cell death in mice genetically fated to develop Parkinson's disease (PD) are involved in the much more common sporadic form of the age-related, neurodegenerative disorder that robs people of the ability to move normally.

Toxic substance acrolein may play role in preventing fibrillation linked to Alzheimer's disease

Toxic substance acrolein may play role in preventing fibrillation linked to Alzheimer's disease

Scientists from RIKEN in Japan have discovered that acrolein—a toxic substance produced in cells during times of oxidative stress—in fact may play a role in preventing the process of fibrillation, an abnormal clumping of peptides that has been associated with Alzheimer's disease and other neural diseases.
