Bluthochdruck ist eine der Hauptverursacher der Herzschwäche oder Herzinsuffizienz. Allein in der Bundesrepublik leiden Millionen von Menschen an dieser Erkrankung, die das Herz auf Dauer schwer schädigt und eine der häufigsten Ursachen für Luftnot und Leistungseinschränkung alter Menschen ist. Jetzt gelang es Forschern und Klinikern der Franz-Volhard-Klinik (FVK) für Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen (Helios Klinikum Berlin-Buch/Charité Campus Buch, Universitätsmedizin Berlin) und des Max-Delbrück-
Sex hormones, produced in the gonads, also self-regulate in peripheral tissues such as the liver. This is one of the conclusions of Joaquín Villar Bécares in his PhD thesis entitled, Molecular analysis in controlling the expression of the HKE6 gene.
Biosynthesis of hormones
In his PhD, Villar Bécares proposed the molecular analysis in controlling the expression of the HKE6 gene.
To this end, he started with cloning the gene promoter, responsible for regulating its
The discovery that a protein present only on the surface of a select group of T-cells functions to inhibit aggressive immune responses could have important implications for organ transplant patients and patients with autoimmune diseases, and could prove equally relevant in the development of vaccines for the treatment of cancer, drug-resistant tuberculosis, HIV infections and other viral diseases. The findings from animal studies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Brigham and Women&#
In order to increase and reinforce the European Commission’s scientific capacity in all of its areas of involvement in the Research and Technological Development Framework Programmes, and to encourage young scientists to enhance their experience in an international, multicultural and multidisciplinary environment, the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission is launching a call for interest for PhD and Post-Doctoral fellowships.
The minimum duration of the grants is six months and t
