  2. The CHIR99021 GSK-3 Inhibitor Mechanism

    The CHIR99021 GSK-3 Inhibitor Mechanism
    The CHIR99021 GSK-3 Inhibitor is both potent and selective. Small membrane-permeable molecules are widely utilized for maintenance and differentiation of embryonic stem cells (ES) of different species. Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) activates the Wnt/beta-catenin pathway when targeted for inhibition. GSK3 is a conserved signaling molecule with essential roles in diverse biological processes. GSK3 activity has been linked to a...

  4. Beta Lactamase Inhibitors in Research: Anti-Seizure

    Beta-lactam antibiotics contain a cyclic amide ring of which mimics the structure of the terminal amino acid residues comprising the peptidoglycan matrix. It is this structure that the enzyme beta lactamase acts upon as a method of antibiotic defense, hydrolyzing the ring and compromising the structure as a result. Structure and function are intrinsically related; without proper structure, the function...

  8. How Alzheimers Causes Dementia

    How Alzheimers Causes Dementia
    Dementia, one of the symptoms of Alzheimers, stems from the neurofibrillary tangles of which form during the development of the disease. The neurofibrillary tangles consist of tau proteins, abnormal clumps within the neurons, and amyloid beta plaques, which form outside the cell and are often accompanied with neuronal death. Both affect neurons that are involved in memory formation, desecrating these...

    Biomarker Latest Application: CNS Development
    Central nervous system (CNS) infections are an important public health concern worldwide. They occur commonly and are associated with high rates of mortality and morbidity. Most deaths related to CNS infections are the result of cerebral tissue injury. Neurological symptoms in survivors include physical, sensory, and cognitive disability, all of which may be permanent. Once bacteria enter the CNS, the...
