Fat Cells That Amplify Nerve Signals in Response to Cold Also Affect Blood Sugar Metabolism, UT Southwestern Researchers Report

But since white fat cells have very few nerves, how do beige fat cells get the message that it's cold outside?

New research is one of the strongest indicators yet of molecular signaling from end to end in peripheral nerve cells. The new discoveries may help scientists better understand nerve cells' distress signals and nerve cell repair, so ...

Brake on nerve cell activity after seizures discovered; Gene expression initiates protective electrical response

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Selected genes get switched on during and after a seizure, sending signals to reduce uncontrolled firing of nerve cells. A medication that amplifies this response could prevent recurrent seizures and onset of epilepsy.

'Beiging' white fat cells to fight diabetes

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

PHILADELPHIA - Researchers are getting closer to learning how to turn white fat cells into brown fat cells, in a process called "beiging," to bring down blood sugar levels and fight diabetes. The team, led by Joseph Baur, PhD, an as...
