Symphony of life, revealed: New imaging technique captures vibrations of proteins, tiny motions critical to human life

Symphony of life, revealed: New imaging technique captures vibrations of proteins, tiny motions critical to human life | cardio-vascular disease | Scoop.it

Like the strings on a violin or the pipes of an organ, the proteins in the human body vibrate in different patterns, scientists have long suspected. Now, a new study provides what researchers say is the first conclusive evidence that this is true.

 

The team found that the vibrations, which were previously thought to dissipate quickly, actually persist in molecules like the "ringing of a bell," said UB physics professor Andrea Markelz, PhD, who led the study.

 

These tiny motions enable proteins to change shape quickly so they can readily bind to other proteins, a process that is necessary for the body to perform critical biological functions like absorbing oxygen, repairing cells and replicating DNA, Markelz said.

 

The team's technique for studying vibrations could be used in the future to document how natural and artificial inhibitors stop proteins from performing vital functions by blocking desired vibrations.

 

"We can now try to understand the actual structural mechanisms behind these biological processes and how they are controlled."

Dr.Dominique Dock's insight:

Protein molecules change shape in response to stimulus, and this confirms the information previously available, that cell membrane has an important role in "recognising" the environment and responds to it. This change allows proteins to "fit in" different "locks" like keys to different doors.

Is Big Pharma the Culprit Behind the Painkiller Epidemic?

Is Big Pharma the Culprit Behind the Painkiller Epidemic? | cardio-vascular disease | Scoop.it

More Americans die from overdosing on painkillers each year than from heroin and cocaine combined.

 

If that isn’t proof enough of an epidemic, consider this: In the U.S., 45 people are killed by these opiate-based medications every day. 

 

Now a new report has found a villain to blame for the country’s addiction to pain meds: doctors operating under the influence of big pharma.

Hospital antibiotics have become one of the most over-prescribed "medicines" today. As a result people have ruined their digestive systems, and ironically, have lowered their natural immunity to all types of infections in the future.

 

Get rid of infections without the digestive destruction, with these five powerful natural antibiotics.

 

Garlic has been used medicinally by cultures around the world for thousands of years. In fact, it was used in the 1700s to ward off plague.

 

Garlic possesses potent antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties and is able to help protect and facilitate removal of unfriendly bacteria. It is also very high in natural antioxidants that destroy free radicals, which also supports a strong immune system.

Welcome to the medical Matrix: the flu isn't the flu

Welcome to the medical Matrix: the flu isn't the flu | cardio-vascular disease | Scoop.it

Dr. Peter Doshi, writing in the online BMJ (British Medical Journal), reveals one monstrosity.


As Doshi states, every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory samples are taken from flu patients in the US and tested in labs. Here is the kicker: only a small percentage of these samples show the presence of a flu virus.


This means: most of the people in America who are diagnosed by doctors with the flu have no flu virus in their bodies.


So they don’t have the flu.


Therefore, even if you assume the flu vaccine is useful and safe, it couldn’t possibly prevent all those “flu cases” that aren’t flu cases.


The vaccine couldn’t possibly work...

Sweden Becomes First Western Nation to Reject Low-fat Diet in Favor of Low-carb High-fat Nutrition

Sweden Becomes First Western Nation to Reject Low-fat Diet in Favor of Low-carb High-fat Nutrition | cardio-vascular disease | Scoop.it

Sweden has become the first Western nation to develop national dietary guidelines that reject the popular low-fat diet dogma in favor of low-carb high-fat nutrition advice.

 

"Butter, olive oil, heavy cream, and bacon are not harmful foods. Quite the opposite. Fat is the best thing for those who want to lose weight. And there are no connections between a high fat intake and cardiovascular disease."

 

"Previously, the health care system has given the public advice to avoid fat, saturated fat in particular, and calories. A low-carb diet has been dismissed as harmful and as being a fad diet lacking any scientific basis."

 "This report turns the current concepts upside down and advocates a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet, as the most effective weapon against obesity..."

"This is an example of how medical research routinely works, focusing on one event at a time, buried within an immensely complex system. Developing single potentially dangerous, tissue-targeted drugs to block single pathways routinely sets aside control of the real culprit, diet. This strategy is so feeble, so ill-advised and so focused on creating wealth for the few over health for the many! Shameful!"

New imaging method 'predicts' heart attack risk

New imaging method 'predicts' heart attack risk | cardio-vascular disease | Scoop.it

Scientists have created an imaging technique that can detect which patients are at high risk of heart attack. The device 'lights up' fatty plaques in the arteries that may rupture.

 

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh in the UK say the test - carried out using positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) - is able to "light up" dangerous fatty plaques in the arteries that are in danger of rupturing. This is a process that can cause heart attacks.

 

To reach their findings, the researchers analyzed 80 patients. Of these, 40 patients recently had a heart attack, while the other 40 patients had angina - restricted blood supply to the heart posing a higher risk of heart attack.

'First step' towards heart attack prevention

Using the PET-CT scanner, the researchers found that 90% of patients who had a heart attack showed a "lit up" yellow area in one of their blood vessels. This area corresponded exactly to the location of the plaque that caused the patients' heart attacks, the researchers say.

 

The scanner also showed lit up plaques in around 40% of the patients with angina. Furthermore, the researchers found "high-risk" features in these patients that suggested a heart attack may be imminent, meaning they were in need of aggressive drug treatment or surgery.
