The lysine deacetylase Sirtuin 1 modulates the localization and function of the Notch1 receptor in regulatory T cells

Some interesting fact of my work The ability to tune cellular functions in response to nutrient availability has important consequences for immune homeostasis. The activity of the receptor Notch in regulatory T (Treg) cells, which suppress the functions of effector T cells, is indispensable for Treg cell survival under conditions of diminished nutrient supply. Antiapoptotic signaling induced… Read More The lysine deacetylase Sirtuin 1 modulates the localization and function of the Notch1 receptor in regulatory T cells

Differences between catalysts and enzymes

Enzymes and catalysts both affect the rate of a reaction. In fact, all known enzymes are catalysts, but not all catalysts are enzymes. The difference between catalysts and enzymes is that enzymes are largely organic in nature and are bio-catalysts, while non-enzymatic catalysts can be inorganic compounds. Neither catalysts nor enzymes are consumed in the… Read More Differences between catalysts and enzymes

Scientists bust myth that our bodies have more bacteria than human cells:Source nature news

Scientists bust myth that our bodies have more bacteria than human cells Decades-old assumption about microbiota revisited. It’s often said that the bacteria and other microbes in our body outnumber our own cells by about ten to one. That’s a myth that should be forgotten, say researchers in Israel and Canada. The ratio between resident… Read More Scientists bust myth that our bodies have more bacteria than human cells:Source nature news
