The effect of continuous single and combined influence of exogenous stress factors (ethanol and low intensity gamma-radiation) on cytochrome P450 2E1 ( expression in mice liver was studied. The chronic ethanol intake induced Cyp2E1 protein expression but not increased Cyp2e1 mRNA level. The first week of continuous combined influence of ethanol and gamma-irradiation was characterized by the increase of Cyp2E1 protein level, that was back to normal on second week. A small decrease of this index was observed at the end of the fifth week. The changes of Cyp2E1 protein amount accompanied the decrease of Cyp2e1 mRNA level.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
