World's first lab-grown #burger to be eaten today

Scientists took cells from a cow and, at an institute in the Netherlands, turned them into strips of muscle which they combined to make a patty. And now the world's first lab-grown burger is to be unveiled and eaten at a news conference in London on Monday. Researchers say the technology could be a sustainable way of meeting what they say is a growing demand for meat.

Scientists isolate cancer stem cells that lead to the growth of Wilms’ tumours [article] #kidney #cancer

Scientists have isolated cancer stem cells that lead to the growth of Wilms’ tumours, a type of cancer typically found in the kidneys of young children. The researchers have used these cancer stem cells to test a new therapeutic approach that one day might be used to treat some of the more aggressive types of this disease. The results are published online in EMBO Molecular Medicine

Argyria: How silver turns people blue [article] #molecular

Ingesting silver — in antimicrobial health tonics or for extensive medical treatments involving silver — can cause argyria, condition in which the skin turns grayish-blue. Brown researchers have discovered how that happens.  The process is similar to developing black-and-white photographs, and it's not just the silver.

A friend of the family has a similar skin tone from his job, manufacturing silver powders and salts. It is quite unsettling when you first see him.

Unlimited source of human kidney cells created 

Researchers at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have successfully generated human kidney cells from human embryonic stem cells in vitro1. Specifically, they produced the renal cells under artificial conditions in the lab without using animals or organs. This has not been possible until now.

Inactive people can achieve major #health and #fitness gains in a fraction of the time

Instead of long stints in the gym and miles of running in the cold, the same results could be achieved in less than a third of the time, according to new research published today (1 February) in The Journal of #Physiology.

This study has taken existing research to a new level to prove that replacing endurance training with two types of interval training, High intensity Interval Training (#HIT) and Sprint Interval Training (#SIT), can make a massive difference to our health and aerobic fitness.  In two articles, the researchers describe their recent discoveries that three sessions of SIT, taking just 90 mins per week, are as effective as five sessions of traditional endurance exercise, taking five hours per week, in increasing whole body insulin sensitivity via two independent mechanisms.

Shifting the balance between good fat and bad fat [article] #molecular #obesity

In many cases, obesity is caused by more than just overeating and a lack of exercise. Something in the body goes haywire, causing it to store more fat and burn less energy. But what is it? Sanford-Burnham researchers have a new theory -- a protein called p62.

According to a study the team published December 21 in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, when p62 is missing in fat tissue, the body's metabolic balance shifts -- inhibiting "good" brown fat, while favoring "bad" white fat. These findings indicate that p62 might make a promising target for new therapies aimed at curbing obesity.

Special Issue: #Proteomics in Brazil

Brazil -- The Country of Proteomics
Opportunities have also been very optimistic proteomic-wise. The wide range of themes being explored in Brazil using proteomics is comparable to our natural diversity and mixed ethnicity. Brazilian laboratories – although mostly concentrated in the Southeast and South regions of Brazil – have been fully equipped for proteomic proposes, thanks to the Federal and also State funding agencies.

Was aware that a lot work was being carried out but did not know at this state.
