Motor nerve terminals with fast downregulation of Syt1 are more vulnerable in Spinal Muscular Atrophy
Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the most frequent genetic cause of infant mortality. It is caused by mutations or loss of the SMN1 gene, which codifies for the Survival of Motor Neuron (SMN) protein. SMN has an

Former drinkers, that is those who have stopped alcohol use, have higher mortality than lifelong abstainers. Higher mortality may be due to some disease, alcoholism or ending beneficial moderate drinking, which has been found to decrease mortality.
The brain is made up of four major types of brain cells. Neurons, oligodendrocytes, microglia and astrocytes. Neurons (nerve cells) are specialised cells that process and carry ‘messages’ through electrical signals. Oligodendrocytes are cells which are wrapped
Corn tortillas are traditional Mexican and Central American flatbreads made from cooking corn that has been treated with alkaline, in the form of limestone. While corn tortillas provide high levels of carbohydrates and calcium, they are low
Patient education materials are an important resource for patients to understand their disease and treatment plan. Unfortunately, these materials are often written at a reading level that is too difficult to understand for many patients. In our
Gold nanoparticles nowadays are one of the most interesting tool for biomedical and technological research as they are characterized by several appealing biological and optical properties. In particular, gold nanoparticles are characterized by an intense color given
Staying physically active is one of the most beneficial things that a person can do for maintaining whole-body health. It is well understood that physical activity is important for building muscle, improving cardiovascular health, and boosting metabolism.
