How melanoma can become drug resistant Oct 20, 9:36 am
Washington, Oct. 20 (ANI): Researchers have claimed that a process involving the phenotypes - the outward, physical appearance based on genetic coding - of tumour cells could change appearance of melanoma tumours by altering the number and type of protein receptors dotting the surface of the individual melanoma cells within the tumour.
Washington, Oct. 3 (ANI): Researchers including an Indian-origin have known that insects are repelled by N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide, also known as DEET, but which olfactory receptors insects used to sense it had eluded scientists for long.
How skin senses whether it's being draped with silk or satin Oct 1, 2:14 pm
Washington, Oct. 1 (ANI): A new research has revealed that humans distinguish the difference between fine textures, such as silk or satin, through vibrations, which are picked up by two separate sets of nerve receptors in the skin and relayed to the brain.
Drug that killed MJ set to help in development of new anaesthetics Sep 23, 10:23 am
Washington, Sept. 23 (ANI): Researchers have identified the site where the widely used anesthetic drug propofol binds to receptors in the brain to sedate patients during surgery, and this could lead to the development of new and better anaesthetics.
