DURHAM,N.C. – Doctors have known for many years that patients with fragile X syndrome,the most common form of inherited intellectual disability,are often also diagnosed with autism. But little has been known about how the two diagnoses are related.
Now a collaborative research effort at Duke University Medical Center and Rockefeller University has [...]

Understanding how any disease progresses is one of the first and most important steps towards finding treatments to stop it. This has been the case for such brain-degenerating conditions as Alzheimer’s disease. Now,after several years of incremental study,researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine,University of Pennsylvania have been able to piece together [...]
The angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) mediates most hypertensive actions of angiotensin II. To understand the molecular regulation of the AT1R in normal physiology and pathophysiology,methods for sensitive and specific detection of AT1R protein are required. Here,we examined the specificity of a panel of putative AT1R antibodies that are commonly used by [...]
