Albicans. Estradiol-treated mice were more susceptible to the fungal infection and had lower Th17 immune response. The researchers identified dendritic cells as the target cells of estradiol and showed that estradiol treated dendritic cells trigger the Th17 inefficient immune response to C. Albicans antigens. The next time you hear a woman say that they are sick of men, said John Wherry, Deputy Editor of the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, you can add to her list as another reason This adaptation of the male sperm long enough to be able to survive to fertilize an egg, may also open the door for other types of infections.. The mice were Relloso and colleagues found that the sex hormone estradiol, increased susceptibility to systemic candidiasis .

– ‘This could be an explanation why during ovulation females have more risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV or HPV infection,’said Miguel Relloso, a researcher involved in the work from the Laboratorio de Inmunobiolog? with C. Albicans.ital Gregorio Mara? n and the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain.. A new research report in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology suggests that a woman’s ovarian cycle in their in her susceptibility to infection. Continue reading

In contrast to C. Elegans , which lives in the dirt makes the P. Pacificus his home in an unusual ecological niche: He lives with oriental beetles in the United States and Japan, to the bacteria, fungi and other small roundworms grow to eat the beetle carcasses after they died they died during the beetles live and the nematodes food source is scarce, the worms live in a resting stage where they do not eat or reproduce.

The genome of P. Pacificus is substantially larger and more complex than C. Elegans. It has nearly 170,000 chemical bases and contains 23,500 protein-coding genes. By comparison, C. Elegans and the human parasitic nematode Brugia malayi, whose genome only 2007, only about 20,000 to 12,000 protein – coding genes. Infection with B. Malayi cause lymphatic filariasis, elephantiasis, a grotesque enlargement of the arms, legs and genitals can cause. Continue reading

This indicates a genetically regulated compromise – but delayed reproduction longer lifespan – which is partially in part, of IGF1, Yuan says.. Jackson researchers including Research Scientist Rong Yuan , had previously found that mouse strains lower blood levels lower blood levels of the hormone IGF-1 at the age of six months longer than other strains. Research research in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Yuan and colleagues report that women from the strains with low levels IGF1 reach sexual maturity at a much later age.

In the newly published research Yuan and colleagues used the biological benchmark of vaginal patency as an indicator of puberty in mice. – Mice from the inbred strain C57BL/6J, also known as Black 6, was 9 % lower IGF1, 6 % of delayed age of VP and 24 % longer life compared to a Black 6 sub-tribe, the gene variant one which increases wears IGF1.. Yuan notes that the researchers in England recently demonstrated that higher IGF1 and other hormones in girls with earlier age of menarche is assigned. Continue reading
